    Which is why we're handing out the initial warnings the same day all the papers are signed. And why we're bringing police backup. And why we've boarded the house back up, and increased "security" (really its just myself, my niece and my bf being out there at its most populated times). We've taken all the appropriate steps so far, and have come up with a fair and firm compromise. Now its all up to the individuals themselves to decide whether or not to comply or vacate.

    So it went better than I expected. All the local pd had to do is stand around and look menacing. The buckle bunny gave a little attitude and the cowpig ripped up the contract when she thought I couldn't hear her. I'm expecting to know how many boarders I'll have at the end of the week.
    There's been rumors of threats on my trailer, hopefully none of them are stupid enough to break into my living quarters/tack room. Deputy, my bf's pit, enjoys chewing on a screamer every once in a while, not that they could get through the cat locks. The locks disrupted their theft of my feed, and I had to move it to my living quarters to keep them from breaking in my trailer windows. Hopefully no further police action will be needed.

    All I can do is wish you hope and luck!

    I might also suggest a few cameras to video vandals so that proper charges can be brought to bear. It sounds like you have taken the first step of a hard climb to a good stable. Hold tight. Remember that turning the other check to a vandal will just start them down an even worse path then they are already on. Holding them responsible for thier actions will be better for THEM in the long run as it just might put the scare of justice into them.

    I will pray for all of you - the horses, the girls, and especially you and yours!

    Celeste- yea if your showing in the attitude class of the trash division. There's no room for thieves at my barn.

    Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes. I know it won't be easy, especially with the equine economy in our area. But we've got a good dedicated team working on it now, so I think the place will come along nicely :)

    Well, the buckle bunny and the cow pig have left. Appearantly they've moved to a barn down the road that only charges 100 for partial. This is because they're turnout is all dirt, they're ring is fill dirt (glass, rocks, leftovers from the sifting site that's HORRIBLE for hooves) and tiny, and the stalls are haphazard and half rotted. Good riddance.
    We've already started cleaning up. The BO bought us a new mower and lawn equipment so the pastures and landscaping is all in the works. Then is new fencing, new paint, the electric work, redo the arena, rebed the stalls,..... Whew. Should take us about a month to get it looking right.
    One lady has begun running her mouth about how strict I am. We had an incident where she tied her horse to a her trailer which was not in our new designated trailer parking area. She had parked it right next to my truck and tied him between them sandwiching him in with like 4ft of space. She walked away, he got nervous. Now, I was practically raised in my step dads auto shop and I technically built this truck, and I'm in love with it (she's a 4runner, her name is gertrude #2) I asked the boarder if she'd mind using the crossties I've supplied at six different places around the barn so we DIDN'T have to tie out. I'd like to avoid a horse foot shaped dent, and I didnt want to see this horse shatter his leg on my 1/2 inch thick steel plating. Would you believe I got an earful on how its her horse and she can tie it how she wants and my sh*t barn isn't worth tying to? She said it all while she moved her horse though, so I still won.
    There hasn't been any vandalism really, just some annoying things done to my stalls and what's going to be our feed room. Paint knocked over on the floor, black dirt thrown into stalls I JUST stripped. I'm going to speak to the boss and set up a rotation of someone being out overnight or staying in the house to keep them out at night.
    As long as no one messes with the horses, I'll only press charges for trespassing when I catch them. Makes me wonder how absent these kids parents really are.
