    I am a BO. This situation sounds like a misunderstanding. Could it be? To me is halter is a halter. If it is yours it should be hanging on the hook outside of your box with your horses name clearly marked with permanent ink across the noseband. Occasionally, stuff disappears and walks away. A fact of life at any barn. Make it easy on everyone by putting your name on all of your equipment.
    Just a friendly reminder to all and I hope you get this worked out.

    Oh, boy. Here goes.

    My BO is a piece of work. I love her as a person, but she's scatterbrained, disorganized, and her mind is always somewhere else. She starts talking about a project she wants to get done, them forgets about it the next day and tries to start on something else. Her management skills are nonexistent and I'm glad that I'm in charge of doing everything in regards to my horses. She also takes things (like brushes, lunge whips, lead ropes) that are mine and thinks they're hers. She still has a lunge whip that she took from me four years ago. And she wanted to volunteer my horses for lessons as while ago. I was like, HELL NO. Plus she's always trying to get me to take lessons with other people other than my own trainer.

    The worst part is, she's a horrible rider. She also cross ties horses by the bit, drops the reins and lets them drag on the ground, and lets her horses loose in the yard to graze and thinks they won't run off. Well, they did, and she hasn't done that since- as far as I know. The sad thing is, she has no idea how goofy she is. She's nuts, but the barn is awesome and she doesn't touch my horses. So I put up with it.

    Well, this last barn was small - six boarders - and my halter WAS hung on my stall. I had Joey's name written in the tag on the inside, and after it disappeared, it had conveniently been removed. The conversation went like this:

    "Have you seen Joey's navy blue halter and lead?"
    "Yes, it's hanging on July's stall, because it's mine."

    ...0.o

    It was strange. She was a piece of work anyway. Glad I moved.

    Also, I'm not the OP - her situation is a little bit different. Much more malicious situation than mine.

    Ha ha - I started keeping EVERYTHING except the mandatory halters and leads hung on their stalls in a plastic bin in the trunk of my car.

    I am going to be sure to get a padlock for my tack trunk, now that I'm at a new fascillity - I've started to get these thoughts in my head that fellow boarders are opening it up and browsing through all my stuff.......

    Yeah... sometimes boarders think that other people's tack trunks are community tack trunks.
