    No, they left it running away from the water trough, laying straight on the ground. Lol

    That was the original plan but my horse started to seem depressed being alone with no horsey companions so my Godfather agreed to open the other two stalls to boarders.

    My horse alone goes through 5 square bales per month during the winter. Last night their owner brought them a round bale and put it right next to the barn. My horse gets left in at night (i got him his own square bales.) I fed them in the morning and 1/4 of the round bale was already gone from just overnight. There is hardly any grass here due to cold, mud, rain, snow, etc lol.

    Keep your writing on a professional level and as purely a matter of business.

    I also might use this experience to create a nice set of rules/requirements for the next individual to sign.

    My very best !
    This is tough as it seems to have started out a casual, verbal agreement. Unfortunately these things start this way but often end badly. I agree, do everything in writing when you ask them to leave but I think "a couple of months" will make them think you aren't serious. I'd write a formal letter and give them an exact date to move their horses and if you ever decided to do this in the future I'd suggest using a true boarding contract.
    Here's a place for free equine contracts: Horse Legal Forms
    You can download them and modify to your own needs. After you tell them to leave keep a very sharp eye on what's going on. They may resent being kicked out and damage thing or do something to your horse!

    We did use a boarding contract . It says they have to give us 30 days notice if they choose to move their horses but nothing about how much notice we have to give them to move their horses. The only thing we verbally agreed on was their horses would outgrow our property. Everything else was in writing. We gave them a formal notice/letter stating they have 30 days from March 5th to move their horses. That's when they got all angry

    I have heard stories of precious boarders of other places taking anger out on a horse. That is really sad. / I have already locked all my saddles and most of my supplies in my horse trailer. Only one of the boarders (the 22 year old daughter) signed the contracts for both horses. It wasn't until a month ago that it clicked in our minds that one horse belongs to her mother. She has been paying board for one horse, her daughter the other. Her husband must have no idea about this bcuz when we gave them back their hay money (it was included in board) he was all confused as to why he had to get hay for what he thought was his daughter's horses.
