Well I just finished my grain box, complete with doors with a good ol' combo lock. My supplements were disappearing quite fast. And since I measure everything exact I know how long everything should last. BM has the combo.

I'm pretty sure I know who has been "borrowing" my stuff since it wouldn't be the first time she was caught "accidentally borrowing" other peoples stuff.

One thing you could do in addition to locking your grain tub would be to paint the back of the lock with food color or something that would stay wet and stain anyone's hands who try to get into it. Let the BO know your plan ahead of time and if the girl starts running around with purple/green/blue hands, she'll have been caught in the act. If she tried to lie about it both you and the BO would know the truth.

That is a very good idea! Harmless, yet effective!

My thoughts are if she is stealing food, what else is she "borrowing" or stealing? Sure feed is expensive but so is all of the tack and equipment too. If your BO is reasonable she will get rid of this person.
