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.
