Can't say it any better than that ^^^

Don't feed the drama machine. Just walk away.

Thanks leonalee. I have some age on me, so I've learned 'stuff' over the years. Some good, some just taking up space in my brain!

Speed Racer, I love you, can I put my horses up with you? lol Cordial really is my only option at this point. It's not like I can totally ignore her, we work together, share lesson horses, etc. There is quite a bit of professional time we spend together.

She's never really caused me any major trouble at the barn, a few snippy comments here and there and it hasn't done much at all. This may stir things up a bit more if she continues to feel so miffed about it, but as everyone here (and at the barn) has said. They're my horses. I get to dictate what I want to happen with them.

On the brightside, I'm pretty sure I'm going to come home to spoiled rotten horses xD Sterling is very excited and she's already asked to start doing basic chores with them around the barn. She feeds them, she took Rambo out in the lunge pen yesterday, took Scribbles for a long walk around our paddock. They're things kids who don't own really don't get to do. I feel bad, but I can't just be letting any student waltz up and take a horse out. That only happens on Saddle Club (good God, I hate what that show has 'taught' some kids -.-)

So I ranted a bit xD lol other than this silly drama, I'm feeling good about my guys :]

Sounds like Sterling is going to be loving it, and you're leaving your horses in good hands.

I never read/saw any of the Saddle Club stuff but trust me, the selfish, entitled, I-want-it-so-I-should-get-it, don't understand if it's not theirs they shouldn't be touching it, kidlets have been around forever!

I agree with SR. Why bother with her drama? They are your horses, not hers. If she's pissed, well, that's a waste of her energy. If it's too much of a problem for her to be mad with you, you could always tell her (as politely as possible, though it may seem hard) that "I wanted to give another person an opportunity, I'm sorry that it's not okay with you. However, I feel that since Sterling has worked with Cash before, she is more capable at the moment. I am not against you working with my horses, but, right now, you are not the right person." You could throw in that she can talk to you about working with Cash, if you're comfortable with that option, that is. Good luck!

I never read the books but I've seen a LOT of the show (little cousins, they love it and for a short time my boss played the first season on the TV in the lounge we have attached to our indoor) Essentially, just regular students can just do whatever the hell they want with school horses. Just take them out to hack out in the VAST woods/fields the farm apparently owns, totally unsupervised etc.

It's quite popular in my area, and though we do owe it a lot of buisness (gives those little girls a real horse bug) the attitude of being able to whatever they want upon entering the lesson program bothers me. I've been called out on being a bit over protective of the school horses but thats what they are. They belong to the barn, not the students. I do try to take my kids out like in the paddocks and let them canter around occaisonally, and do some other fun type things but I don't like when it's just EXPECTED of me to create the same environment the kids (and their parents) see on TV. Real barns don't work like that with all perfectly behaved horses.

I'm ranting again -.-

Chickens, by their very nature, are prone to attack. After all, they're just smaller, fluffier versions of velociraptors.

It's actually gotten a lot better in the last month with the exception of the rogue rooster. He has a tendency to be one nasty SOB LOL :) He's the reason I don't wear sandals out there anymore!
