Am i rediculous for feeling this way over my stuff?
My brother lives next door and has four horses. I have my own four. We "shared" one for three years until we got to be too much for each other to handle due to our different styles. He likes to rough up and rodeo on his horses and im more of a reining/performance rider. Sadly I've spend four years getting all my horse things picked out and arranged like I need it. I have brushes, blankets, extra pieces for my tack, my own saddles, bridles, horse boots, flymasks ect. Well since my brother and his family moved here a month ago he seems to believe that the "horse stuff" is a free for all buffet. Anything that isnt on my immediate saddle set is free game! I've have soo much go missing! I understand he needs some things... however I've spent my own personal money on getting all those things for MY horses and he seems to think he can come take whatever he likes and not return it because the "family" has it. I was in his "tack room" earlier and I counted at LEAST six things that were mine in there. Now im scrounging around to find pieces to my extra tack set which is always set up in case I have a guest because my brother has decided that HE wants all the extra tack parts at HIS house! I just had to buy a completely new bridle set for my gelding because my brother thought it fit his gelding better! And any time I try to ask him to not touch my stuff he tells me "Well I let you borrow my horse for two years so you owe me." Even though I fed, trained, and showed his horse for two years while he left her at our house because he didnt have a place to keep her! I am rying to get my dad to convert my extra stall into a lockable tack and feed room! Am I being rediculous and selfish feeling this way?
