    Sometimes I wish I had boarders so I could gripe at them for the mess I make in my own barn... lol.

    Fine them! They won't pick up after their horse in certain areas, tell them it is unhealthy and if you have sufficient proof they're subject to a small fine.

    Wow this in angry mob!! It's funny reading it from the other side. We have two others who at the barn where I board who complain about every little thing. The BO had to call me a few weeks ago to tell me that my horse had a 1' long scratch on his butt. When I told her to just put some boo boo cream on it and thanked her for calling, she was SOOO happy. I never realized how much the hypochondriacs drive her, and apparently all of you, nuts!

    Being a barn owner is ROUGH. Horse people are NUTS.I hope I wasn't ever that neurotic.

    See, I feel as though I have always followed the above listed rules as a boarder, and I had a CRAZY BO once. She stole a halter from me - I proved it. It was nuts. It was just a nylon halter, nothing fancy - but, boy, did she ever want it.

    O.0

    In all honesty, I've had more problems with other boarders than I have with BOs though. Horse people can be NUTS sometimes.

    Horses are going to be... well, horses! There was a boarder at my old barn that would freak out if her gray arab had a scratch, nick, or patch of hair missing. It's not the end of the world. Horses are going to roughhouse. They're going to get bruises and scratches and cuts every now and then. BO's don't deserve to be hounded every moment because of it.

    Or, when they expect you to treat their horse like it's royalty - even at the expense of the others there. Ex: I had a boarder complaining because his horse was isolated from the others for a while, even after I had explained that his horse had attacked one of my foals, and he was just going to have to stay out for a while. He was still complaining that his horse should be in with the baby because he 'liked to see them together'. I evicted him that month.

    Some people make me wonder.
