Angry Annoying people at your barn? (little Rant)

I generally love being at my barn, but there is always that one other boarder that rubs me the wrong way and causes all kinds of problems.

There is one woman who rarely comes out, doesn't really take of her horses and takes up three fields because her two mares, she cant catch. And her gelding, is herd bound, so much that he doesn't let other gelding near the mares and mounts the mares even though HE IS A GELDING. This is really frustrating because my gelding cant go out with him, and when one of the pastures is being worked on or whatever, he's got no where to go AND we have to move EVERY one of the horses.
I'm just really frustrated about the whole thing. I mean as far as the gelding goes its not his fault and i know that, but she doesn't make any effort to try and work with him, hes practically feral.

So thats my rant.
Does anyone else have a really god awfull annoying person where they are?

Honestly - all of those issues, while most easily blamed on the owner of the horses, are a problem with the barn management -- they are allowing her to "take up" those three fields, etc. I would be discussing the issues with the manager and perhaps even looking elsewhere for lodging for my horse if the issues aren't resolved.

The manager on the farm really is a great guy, he tries to keep everything in check but the owner doesnt come out and he really doesnt have a chance to talk to her often. Although more could be done.

I am moveing to another farm which im really excited about, it just bothers me cause the horses are the ones who are taking all the crap.

Sympathies to you.

Since I have my horses at home I only have to deal with myself! :)

But I do remember a particular woman at the barn I use to volunteer at (where T and Walka came from). She would drop her equipment in the aisle way and expect someone to pick up after her!

One day as I was finishing up chores and was heading for home, she decided to let one of her geldings into the pasture where all the pasture kept horses where. No warning or even permission!

Next thing I saw was her gelding breaking through the fence line and heading down the road! Then she demanded that I do something! So I told her to get her A## is gear and get her horse while I mended the fence BEFORE the rest of the horses got out!

Don't miss the drama one bit! Do miss the few people that I enjoyed seeing, but that's the price of having them home.

ugh i hate that... I was accused one time of starving my horse from a crazy woman who never took care of hers. Drove me up the wall.
I take better care of my horse than i take care of me sometimes, Charlie is my kid.

There is one person at the place I board who actually lives there (she rents an apartment up top of the owner's house), and she hardly ever handles her horses, but she came out one night and started telling me all the things that were 'wrong' with my horse...I'm like, uh, duh...I'm out here like 4-5 times a week, he came with hind leg scars, and your horse is causing some of the bite marks...

I just listened and let most of it go in one ear and out the other, because I speak to the barn owner all the time, and I know how much (or rather how little) time she actually spends with her horses, so she can't say anything about my boy... but still, it IS annoying...

The other boarder is a fabulous woman who is out there just as much as I am, and we always have a good time talking and sharing horsey stories. They is another boarder too, but I've never met her (she's like, NEVER, out there), although I would love to steal her horse and take it to AZ with me when I leave next week!Lol!

There is a man who trailers his horse to my barn regularly and usually he goes on trail rides or uses the ring to train.

Last week he came to the barn and left his horse tied up to the trailer for at least two hours while he looked for the barn owner (who, at the time, was gone to a show). Once he realized Michel wasn't there, he untied his horse fron the trailer and brought him in the barn. He tied the little horse to with less than a foot of rope the steel bars of the end stall so that his head was shoved into a corner. Then he took out an electric clipper and tried to shave the horses leg, the horse was terrified and tried to bolt and was kicking all over the place. So the man put hobbles on his front legs. Well, I thought that horse was upset before, he was absolutly out of his tree the second time the clippers touched him, he reared bucked, kicked, he almost fell, I have never seen anything more pathetic in my life.
Finally (after the horse kicked his arm) the man gave up. I asked him why he wanted the legs shaved so badly, he said "the horse has fleas" On closer inspection I realized that the horses legs which I thought were covered with mud, where actually covered with scabs! This man, was trying to shave the scabs off the legs of his horse! I can only imagine what it would have looked like if he had been able to do it!

I forgot to mention, the horse was for years old and I could see all of his ribs and his spine!
