Recently...my boyfriends western headstall and hackamore went missing which we noticed when we saw his reins on the barn owners bridle...my boyfriend is the only one with split brown cotton reins..called the barn owner to have him unlock the downstairs tack room so we could look for our stuff..that's when he said it was at his house. It was a "mistake" that someone used our stuff....riddle me how the reins were removed from headstall and attatched on another then left in the tack room and our headstall was at his house... yea.. exactly. Its my you derstanding he himself took them or had one of his grandkids just randomly grab something to ride his sale horse...NOT OKAY!!! I do not want my tack used on a sale horse that is on quarantine!
Here is my area... I thought it was pretty clear that its OUR stuff! The only difference is sometimes he hangs his headstall from his saddle horn but it gets in my way so I usually move it.
We noticed his saddle pad laying over his saddle... I don't know if that was me because I use his saddle and spare girth to work another boarders horse and their pad but I'm 99% sure I always put everything back tidy. So we organized everything, I rewrapped my lunge line and wrapped my bridles, he sit his saddle and headstall just so. If anyone uses our stuff we will know..
So I'm going to work with my dad to make a locking cabinet to keep my stuff in. I was just wondering how everyone here did it?
The tack room has a lock on it but 3 people use it(mine is the only stuff out. The barn owners stuff is on the opposite side of the room and the other 2 boarders have a smaller closet inside the room) but that room also holds the grain for all the upstairs horses :/ so its open often... we are having tags made with Gunnars name on everything we own... I want to remove any element of ignorance and be sure its not an accident my stuff is being used..
