Appreciate your barn owner

While our barn owner, who is also a very close friend, is out of town we are doing the evening shift at the barn. 20 horses to be brought in, fed (frozen sweet feed bc of the temps) blanketed, hayed and watered.
I happen to know she charges no more winter than summer, and they are all treated like her own babies, and I love her for that. I do wish I could talk her out of sweet feed, but all the horses look fantastic so it works for her.
But...appreciate your barn owners, if they are good, bc those like my Elizabeth are working their butts off for pennies.

Great post!

So many people who post here complaining that their barn owner did something as horrible as leave wood shavings in their pony's tail obviously have no clue how much a barn owner deals with in a day.

Glad you are able to appreciate your barn owner. I am sure your barn owner is thankful to have clients who realize how good they have it.

I do much love her, she's got a great work ethic. We don't have a horse there, but Sarah rides her horses, so it's home to us.

You are such a sweetie Heather. I do appreciate our owners, manager and workers. The place is always spotless, everything in working order, and the horses are fed Safe Choice - and on time rain/sleet/snow/ or blazing hot.

The barn is a fun place to be for me.

I find this thread very interesting. So few have nice things to say about their barn. If this was a vent, it would be three pages by now.

While I don't personally board a horse right now I'm learning first hand about all the hard work it takes to run a stable. It's quite the work out! Definitely an eye opener and makes you appreciate peoples work more. Few BOs are in it for the money, its a love of theirs even though they have to endure many stresses each day.
