    It's so sad really. I hear they think he's half quarter horse. He has the most beautiful floaty trot that screams DRESSAGE and he would be such an awesome horse for someone if he wasn't sitting there turning into a monster.

    I wonder what the BO's insurance carrier would have to say about this? Bet she would do something when they dropped her.

    Move . That is very irresponsible for a BO. I would tell her so, and I would move. She will simply put that horse in with another, and someone and some horse is going to get seriously hurt.
    You should also point that out to her also, on the day you are leaving.
    I would state to NOT turn my horse out with that horse.
    I would ask for a reduction in board since you will not have turn out .
    I would find some place and be gone within the week. Pay for the time you are there.

    While I am naturally concerned about your horse's welfare, I am much more concerned about your own. Everything else stated on this thread thus far regarding the situation pales in comparison to your own health and safety.
    Coming that close to being kicked in the face is so serious that it is even difficult to express in words.
    Document the situation, send her a formal note with a time period to have the matter resolved and then be prepared to leave.

    You are much more important than this drama you are allowing yourself to be in.
    I don't mean to sound harsh. I just care about you.

    All the best !

    She sent me more texts. She still insists that the only solution is for Cinny to only be turned out half day and monster the other half. Cinny has had ulcers in the past and when I moved in to this barn I told her specifically that he was to be turned out all day with a round bale and if he couldn't have that it was a deal breaker, we would not move in. She said at the time ALL boarders were turned out ALL day. So to me this is sort of a breach of contract. I informed her that I insist on a turnout situation in which I do not feel like I am in danger when I get my horse, and my horse is to be turned out all day. This is what I contracted for, this is what I am paying for.

    She now wants us to discuss it later this week as I am obviously currently "upset" about this and I need time to cool down.

    I think my old barn has openings. It is a little more high stress for Cinny (not drama, he just stressed there) and it's more expensive but I think my husband would rather pay higher board than have my head kicked in by the demon spawn. The barn I was at before here has openings but they had 5 mysterious horse deaths last year....all boarders, all acute onset colic, hmmmmm. The other 3 barns in the area are very high drama. Sigh..... I love my barn. It sucks that I have to chose between the possibility of being charged at and trampled but living otherwise stress free or going to a stress barn :( I wish my BO would just get it through her head that the safety of boarders important.

    Ask the BO to go out and catch your horse and let the Monster loose on her. She may change her mind about it. You shouldn't have to put yourself in danger over a crazy horse. Shame you can't take a whip with you because it scares your horse. I would (jmo) take one with me just give the monster a lesson or too..right between the ears...

    She works all day, she has a 9-5 job. She has a hired person in the morning to turn out, feed and muck stalls. Then she comes at 6 to bring them in for dinner. So of course when SHE catches Mr Evil Horse, he is plenty ready to come in and get dinner. He usually is brought in before Cinny. He does dance around and drag her, challenges her, etc. But she doesn't think he's dangerous.

    You are a far more patient person than I . When exactly does she think "later in the week" is? It is now Friday. Personally, I would arrange with a barn….I probably would try one of the "drama" ones because of the mysterious deaths (), to move IMMEDIATELY if need be…..and then let the BO know we are going to chat, and it WILL be this weekend. I would text her back and ask her what time is good for her Saturday of Sunday….and go have her bring in your horse with you. THEN have a chat. Something need to change NOW, and it will NOT be the amount of turnout since that would be a breach of contract. Why should you be walked all over while all the other boarders get full turnout for the same price? I think she thinks you will just "go along" with her program, and is using you. She needs to know that you have a backbone! Honestly-I would probably let her know that if she wishes to continue to own a farm, she may want to deal with this horse-otherwise someone else will get it when she loses it in a lawsuit. Please make sure you are saving your texts, etc….and BE CAREFUL!

    Board is due tomorrow. Call her bluff. Pay her for a week and tell her you'll be gone ASAP.

    Does his owner have any idea of the problems he is causing?
