I knew that case would make in on here!!!! Wasn't exactly her defense, she said the BO was supposed to contact her to do other chores to work off the self board fee but the BO said there was no agreement. The woman basically had her horse there for a 3 months doing self board but no one contacted her about working off her board. BO claimed she told the woman what the price of board was & she couldn't afford it, (BO just bought the place, had 3 barns on it) so she moved her horse to one of the other cheaper barn but still didn't pay. Judge Judy charged the woman for 3 FULL board months and called her stupid.
She was stupid. I didn't even catch the show and even I'm thinking "yeah right- trying to pull a fast one." You can't expect to get any kind of board for free. Even if she were looking to "work off" her boarding- it would be discounted- not free!
She probably figured the BO wouldn't be willing to sue or go to court over it. Oh well- her lesson is probably learned now- especially since she didn't have the money to start with.
The girl was stupid? Was about the BO? Who doesn't notice that there is an extra horse in their barn for 3 months? What else is going on under her nose? Don't blame the workers. They are there to work, not manage the operation.
The whole thing is fishy IMO. A BO that doesn't notice an extra horse for 3mo? Someone who supposedly made arrangements to work off her board and then claims that she shouldn't have to pay for using the facilities as she cared for her horse?
The Judge Judy TV show pays the judgement to whomever wins. I am wondering if the 2 of them cooked up this situation because the boarder was unable to pay, so this way the BO got the money she was due?
Maybe? Either way.. she shouldn't have just moved her horse there when the owner of the place didn't give her permission. That's like someone sleeping over my house when I don't even know who they are!
