Ahhh, understandable. I'm pretty "picky" about that too. Luckily I keep mine at home so I don't need to worry about it. I like to know how people are interacting with my horses and frankly I have to correct enough bad habits while I'm standing there I can't imagine what people would be doing if I wasn't there!

Good for you for talking to him though.

I think "Because I don't want people messing with my horses" is a little toooo honest lol. Lieing can be a good thing sometimes.. that makes you sound a little over-bearing and possessive.

You can say, "Hey Bob, Dobbin is getting mouthy. Do me a favor and nix the peppermints for a while."

My horse is an evil hound with treats. She gets to excited and uses her teeth to grab em. We had two people who always came in and gave horses treats and that just made Gypsy worse. I just put a note on the small white board thing that was on her stall. It was in red ink but asked nicely not to give treats. It works if you cant actually catch the person in the act to explain why.

Glad things worked out with the manager
