Angry annoying person/my rental barn

Well. I rented a barn to avoid all complications with boarding stable and their BO. I know one lady from previous boarding stables. We have boarded at 3 same stables before I rented my own farm.

She just lost her job. She begged me to let her board her horse at my barn for free. She will supply hay and grain, and I do all feeding and care. I told her it is impossible! I have to pay $100 per horse that will live in the farm. It is contract I made with the farm owner. I told her if you want to board at my farm, you will have to pay $100 to the farm owner plus $75 for my care. I will supply hay. She only have to provide grain. She thinks I am a rip-off. She cursed and cursed at me for refusing help her. I wish I could, but I am not rich that I can afford pay $100 for her horse.

How can I handle this situation to make her quiet down? She is still complaining to me. Her previous barn was a self-care she paid $200 for stall plus she have to feed her own horses along with supplying grain and hay. I was kind enough to offer her $175 for the stall plus my care along with hay. She still complains!

Oh also, she cannot find any boarding stables that will fit her budget around here. She is trying to take advantage of my kindness. I cannot get any kinder when it comes to money situation since I have to take care of my own 3 horses. My colt have cryptorchid, so I am saving money for the surgery which costs $900. Why can't she be understanding?!

This isn't your problem, it's hers. Stop letting her use you as a verbal punching bag.

And then tell her, "END OF DISCUSSION.". Her horse, her problem, not yours.

I wish I could END her like that, but she knows where the barn are, so she keep showing up at the farm to "negotiate" with me.

Tell her she's trespassing, and if she continues to do it you'll put a restraining order on her. Either that, or get padlocks and lock your gates so she just can't show up.

What Speed said. And follow that up with ACTION. The next time she shows up after you tell her she's trespassing, call the cops and have her removed and have THEM tell her she's not welcome. That should put an end to it, if not, restraining order.

No, do something NOW. She's already proven she doesn't understand the concept of taking no for an answer.
