Starline, I can only imagine how stressful running a boarding barn must be. However, from this and other posts, it's a little unfair to be looking at so many of these situations only as it pertains to the impact it has on your life. I would be heartbroken if this happened to a horse that I knew and feel horrible for the owners. I'm sure you are, but the way you express youself comes across as "poor me". In this situation in particular, it's much more about the horse and it's owners who are grieving. You did what you could, and these things WILL happen when you run a business. I'm sorry to say this, but your barn might be a little less drama filled if you focused less on your personal feelings and the inconveniences to your life. You're a professional BO now, there will always be difficulties along with the "fun stuff".
Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.
