Oh hopefully I've learned my lesson. You can't do free things for people, then they always just expect more and more, I guess.
And yes, they got the boarding agreement. And yes, now they are really upset with me. Got the list of how many things they have done for me, etc. etc. I've tried to respond kindly without getting angry myself, but I'm sticking to my guns. Explained my position on everything the best I can, now will pray about it and leave it in God's hands.
Part of what was e-mailed back to me is that I should have come and talked to them about being overwhelmed and they would have "helped" me. Well, the help I need is for them to take responsibility for their horses and move them, not "help" me. Even though it is more work, the bigger issue is having to many horses behind my house. Now their horses are in a small corral and using half out the outside stalls, so I can't separate mine at feeding time, and they don't eat the same thing or same amounts. So I have to bring my two in to feed them, then go back out and let them out.
I can't keep their horses penned up in a small area all the time, so they have to be turned out too sometimes. Which means I have to put my two up (I only keep two here behind the house) in order to let theirs out. Which means more stall cleaning and more bedding. Aw heck, its just more work and aggravation and I am tired. I work over an hour away from home, so two hours on the road every day, roughly 9-10 hours at work each day, I don't look for extra work after that, LOL!
Thanks for letting me vent!
