    Love Kevin's suggestion! LMAO

    How big is this facility? Are the other boarders as frustrated with her? If enough of you got together and threatened to leave (like 1/2 or more of her business) if she doesn't stick to the rules or change a particular rule you guys are ticked about, would she shape up? Kind of a coup, if you will.

    Bottom line is, her barn her rules so she can change them. And who knows, maybe she told you no ponies just because she did not want you to get a pony.

    Alwaysbehind is right, OP. It might stink, but whatever contract you have with her is still valid.

    She can make any exceptions she wants because it's her barn, but you have to abide by the contract you have with her.

    The best thing you can do is start looking quietly for a new barn.

    No way would I want my horses in a barn where the BO is a stark raving psychotic, regardless of how much I liked the other boarders.

    If you bite the bullet and stay there, you'll only have yourself to blame if things get bad.

    But then again... if you sign a contract and she changes the rules ... doesnt that make your contract null and void?

    If the contract says you can not do something but the BO does it it does not mean the rules have been changed. It just means that the BO is doing something other than what they allow you to do.

    What in the world????? Guess the "RULES" are only for the boarders!
    Gracious - don't think I'd trust the BO as far as I could throw her!

    ^^ agree with alwaysbehind. I personally would still be worried about having to pony stallions at the barn. While it is very unlikely they could still breed, if she way laying down or something. If the stallions have covered a mare chances are they are going to go crazy when the mares go into heat. Most people don't board stallions because they can sometimes be a pain to handle and there is greater liability associated with it.

    Is that fact that hard to believe?

    If the barn rules say no loose dogs on the property does that mean the barn owner can not let their own dog out? Um, no.

    It means the boarders can not bring their dogs.

    Lots of barns have rules that boarders can not handle other people's horses, but that does not mean the BO can not do that.

    I agree too. I would not want to board there with my mare. But like SR said, it would not matter how much I liked the other boarders I would not stay if the BO was a total whack job.

    No, because the contract she has with the existing boarders may not be the one she has with the new ones.

    I agree that it's morally and ethically not right, but the OP has to make one of two choices. Stay quiet, keep her head down and deal with it, or find a new barn.

    Besides, if the BO's a whackadoodle, would you really want to angrily confront her over what you consider injustices when she has your horses in her care?

    I couldn't keep my horses at a place where I didn't respect and trust the BO; I don't care how much I might like the other boarders.

    My first and foremost responsibility is to my horses and their wellbeing. Other people can take care of themselves, but animals are at the mercy of their owners and caregivers.

    Personally, if I had to deal with someone like this BO, I would never feel comfortable leaving my animals in her care. I'd find another barn, and quickly. People like this woman do not have the best interest of your horse at the top of their agenda. I'd be truly worried she'd do something to my horse. I'd be out of there ASAP.
