I never noticed all of these threads! Starline, perhaps you could keep the Starlinestables username for all your helpful and professional postings (thus maintaining your Google ratings) and have a second account for personal use?

That way you can rant and rave all you want on your personal account without it looking unprofessional for your business.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

What about all those fruitcakes that invent multiple profiles so that they can back themselves up when their thread is turning south?!

If you aren't allowed two profiles then I think you have to be careful what you write as a business owner, especially in the horse industry as it is a very small world.

That's our point exactly. If you post things under your business name, you have to be extra careful that you don't post things that could deter people. Numerous rants about your boarders would surely scare away some people; boarders or prospective boarders alike. I lurked for a long time before joining so I know a lot of names here even if they don't know mine, and I know yours associated with a few rants regarding your boarders. I know other posters such as mls own boarding facilities, and as they've said before- they are very careful to keep their business name clean and clear away from any drama online.

With horses comes drama!! I don't know why, maybe because all horse people (including myself) are crazy! But the fact that 90% of your posts are about "Bad" boarders, I don't know how I would feel about bringing my prized horse to your stable.

All barns (that have mulitple boarders) have drama, that's inevitable. Its like an office, or a sorority! It is going to happen. It is how we handle this that we become better people

Our BO keeps her nose out of all the drama unless it is harming the animal! If that happens, she does not post it online, she deals with it in the easiest rational way. That is what a BO should do, not post it so you can have the fear of Animal service comming everytime you hit your horse with a crop!

Have yall read all my posts? They are about crazy boarders and how to handle them appropriately. Why would that scare someone off? I try to be as diplomatic as possible which is why I ask other people. I wish more people would rant their craziness on the web so by the time it got to me, it would be a calm and rational adult conversation instead of going insane and accomplishing nothing.

We have read your posts, and I personally find them highly unprofessional. They are your clients; you do not call them crazy in public, and this is considered a 'public' area. To handle them diplomatically would be to handle the problem in private, not on a public BB. Calm and rational adults in a business setting would discuss things in private and work things out between one another with minimal outside contact at first, and escalate upwards to mediation or the like if needed.
I would not board at your barn because of the way you conduct yourself on this BB.

I wouldn't board at your place nor encourage anyone else to do so. It seems like all you do is complain about the people you have.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

What Charis said.....

Starline, you seem to be in denial, really. You insist you do not talk about your boarders behind their back, etc. But you obviously do as is shown in your posting history. Then you say 'that does not count because those are bad boarders'.
