Wow, what an awful situation! Makes me very thankful I've never had to board.

I had a reverse situation and let a friend keep 2 here while she got fence put up and her barn done. With her being a friend, I didn't think twice about her being in my barn without me. She paid on time, helped out without asking, it was great until I came home early from visiting family to find her breeding her mare to my stud. I completely lost my cool. They didn't leave my place until it was far enough out to give the mare an abortion shot. Her mare was cute but grade and I wouldn't have bred her had she paid, I think that is why she did what she did.

Hope you can get them moved and tell her where to stick that "farrier" bill!!!!

I will be moving them soon, I talked to the BO of the other barn and she's willing to work something out with me so I can keep them there short term until we can put up fence and finish our house. I pray to god she doesn't do anything to my horses :(

That is all.
true story!

I swear I got lucky with boarding my horses at my friends house. I trust her implicitly and I know she would never presume to make such decisions for me as your "friend" did for you. :(

Ya it's sad, because I never thought she would do anything like this. Lets just say... lesson learned

Boarding at friends' places never seems to work out. I tried it once last summer and found out quickly that it wasn't as good as it seemed.

Hopefully you can get out of there fast!

Glad you found somewhere to move them. Move them sooner than later.

I would be so flipping mad that's crazy he could have really messed your horses hooves up.
Good for you about moving them, and you will be so happy when you get them to your own place. No more boarding drama..

Were moving them this Friday :) my husbands going to look in to putting up a fence, that way were ready to go as soon as the house is finished. It really sucks that I lost 400 bucks because I already paid her for April's board, oh well I guess. Its worth the loss.

I would rather lose the money now than have to pay that in vet bills because this friend seems to think she knows better.
