Angry is you stuff missing

Im just wondering has any one returned to there horse's barn and realized a large sum of your tack and supply's is missing. Its really aggravates me. Whats the most expensive thing that has grown legs and walked away?

I was lucky - just a whip. And what is even more nice I suspected who took it and found it next day in their box. So may be they just borrowed and forgot to put back - things like that happen too.

But frankly in all barns I've boarded or took lessons tack (including $$$ saddles) was not locked and I've never heard people complained about stuff to disappear.

We've had a few things disappear that we forgot to put away. We always try to get everything locked up. The most common has been lead ropes. It's like leaving your keys in the car and the doors unlocked. You may never have it stolen, but it could happen. Why take a chance. You can trust all the people some of the time, some of the people all the time but never all the people all the time. It's too bad but that's life.

It would really aggrevate me people borrowing stuff without asking. Maybe you could get something with a lock on it to keep your stuff in. We bought this large plastic tool box that had a lock on it and my saddle and everything fits in it. And it wasn't very pricey like the ones you on doversaddlery or statelinetack. We got it from lowes

One of my spurs decided to take a vacation, leaving it's significant other behind...it was gone for about 2 weeks...I bought a new pair, and it decided to return. * rolls eyes* but the only thing i've lost is a grooming mitt. I'm very meticulous about my organization, everything gets put into the same spot, and I have a list of all my tack that I check regularly...but that's just my obsessive tendencies shining though.

Never had it gone but I've come to broken/used stuff. Really pisses me off! I live by the you break it you buy it rule. I had a brand new pair of reins that I payed $200 for. Some one went into my trailer with muddy shoes took my show bridle and used it. They must have tied the horse by the reins. I never did find who did but I think I know who it was. We even had a barn metting asking the who ever did it to just leave the money in my trailer or if they really had the balls they could come to me. They never did but the "suspect was kicked out for other resons soon after. When they left some other peoples stuff left as well :P

Is the one you got a Stanley box? If so I wouldn't only use just the lock that's built in. I would use a pad lock too. If you lose your key for the built in lock, you can borrow one from someone that has another box. I think they all come with the same lock and key . Or at least the ones around here did.

I left my lock off because I forgot the combo to it and put it in my box (witch is also missing) how ever my bridal has gone missing and I fount my leather halter in the only other persons tack box in my tack room. All I know is I had to go spend a decent amount of money because all my grooming stuff grew legs and walked away (ya right). Im just irritated I don't use any one els's stuff with out there consent and when I do use it I make shore to put it back the way I fount it. All my tack and my stuff was moved to the other side of the tack room and that's when every thing went missing. I fount stuff that wasn't mine in my box and things that were mine in the other persons tack box mmmmmmmm. I have OCD soo I know how you feel lona even my grooming supplies is rinsed out after every grooming and looks brand new I have a spot for everything. Soo I guess my new tack box is the trunk of my car :/

Not so much at a boarding barn but....

Years ago at a rodeo someone stole the saddle of my horse back!!!

I had just finished a barrel run, went back to the trailer, tied my horse to the trailer...(we had another round of goes after they dragged the arena so we had a 20 min break)...I walked over to the bathroom which was like 30 feet from the trailer, came out 5min later and my saddle was gonzo!!!! Like wth!
