Our is a pretty private barn as well, friends or friends of friends board only. Board is due 1st of every month, plus additional grain costs. We have two days after the first of the month, but after that she charges a flat $25 dollar fee then $2 a day after that initial fee. So day one late is $25, day 2 $2, day 3 $2. That's in our contract. We have one boarder, who lack of a better term is an airhead. She's not by any means "stupid" she doesn't apply herself or care to be at the barn when her horse needs her. So we got new contracts with the late clause. She hasn't been late since.
