OMG I'VE HAD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am now TOTALLY fed up with my BO. I have had it, literally. I am currently looking for a new place to barn Sonny that is reasonibly priced.

It's not just what happened Sunday...though that is part of it.

Today I came early to clean Sonny's pasture, then brought him up to ride. I was riding in the background as 3 girls had a lesson. I wasn't in their way...and I made sure I was always going the same direction that they were going. Then the BO asked the 3 girls (not the ones riding...the ones just watching) if they could UNLOAD (a key word for this part) the hay out of the wagon...so they spent a good hour or more unloading it. When they came back the BO got all upset at them for not putting they hay away also. Now to me...unload JUST means taking it OUT....not putting it away ...the BO should have been more clear.
Then she asked me if I'd get off and put it away...I said I'll do it if I have time after I finish riding, but I couldn't stay the whole day cause I'm going to the fair with my best friend. Then she got all upset about that.

Then when I was letting Sonny dry after his bath, she told a friend of mine that a lady was coming to look at 2 horses for sale and that she was going to have her (my friend) show Zoey to the lady. When my friend (we'll call her Lucy) said that she couldn't because her mom was picking her up at 3 pm (they people were coming at 4:30 to look at the horses). Then she asked me if I could, and I said I couldn't because of my friend coming over and us going to the fair. Then she asked one other girl and she said she couldn't either so the BO stormed off.
After a while, "Lucy" said that she could try calling her parents and see if she could stay later...and the BO snapped and yelled "NO I don't want you to, I'll find someone else to ride her or I'll ride the **witch**" (edited version lol) then stormed of. And she yelled that infront of a little kid!! I was totally surprised!

THEN after I brought Sonny down I had to run back up and get his grain. I asked the BO if she was using the wheelbarrow because I didn't feel like carrying a 50 lb bag of grain down the long slope. So she said wait a bit and she'd take me up and then take me back so I wouldn't have to bring up the wheelbarrow. So I waited for a while, but them my mom yelled for me saying we've got to leave soon. So I just took the wheelbarrow up and loaded the grain bag into it. The minute I finished the BO came up and got all upset because I didn't wait for her. When I explained that my mom said we had to leave soon and I dind't know how long she'd take till she drove me up, she got even more upset and said something like "I'm sorry if I don't jump and do everything you want right when you tell me to".

So I just ignored her and brought the grain down, and then got my stuff and left...only said bye to the girls, not to the BO because I was so upset at her.

So that's my rant for the day.
I am currently e-mailing http://www.passingfancyhorses.com/ about their board. I went to their stables and the BO is REALLLLLLLY nice so hopefully things will work out

oh I mgiht as well add also another reason why I'm wanting to leave is because one of the girls STOLE my crop, and someone has been using my grain for Sonny....the bucket has my name all over it and everything.
I know which girl stole my crop and I'll be talking to her about it...but I'm not sure about the grain. I don't think it's the BO, I think it was the other boarder (she's gone now though thankfully)

I know how it feels to have your tack and stuff stolen from you :roll: I think you need to leave that place. If the BO is nasty like that and swearing in front of a little kid she is not worth your time or business.

wow... has she always been like this?

Hopefully that new barn has a reasonable rate so that you can get Sonny a new home

...well.... even though you'll probably cool down and end up staying there... I've always felt like your BO kind of takes advantage of you anyway... and then those girls at the barn are so mean, I'd actually kind of be happy for you if you packed up and shipped out! Let us know what you end up doing...

Well I've definitely had it...not only is her attitude REALLY starting to bug me, but she's starting to get on my case for things that I didn't do, and I don't know how long she'll actually keep the place cause she's ALWAYS talking about selling the stables...and she already has a guy interested in buying it....and if he buys it I'd have to pay $525 per month for board (he owns another stables and that's how much people pay at that one).
I found a place..it's about 30-40 minutes away, but I've seen it before, the lady is nice, the stables is nice and clean...so I e-mailed her.
She offers pasture board for $300 a month and she has an indoor, an outdoor, and some trails. She's a horse trainer so she knows what she's doing.
So if things work out I'll definitely move him there, the only thing I'd need to buy would be a bridle (been using the BOs), and a saddle pad (been using the BOs). But that's it...I have my saddle, cinch, and a bit, polo wraps, etc

I wouldnt take that crap...is it part of your deal to help with unloading hay and what not??? I guess the few places that I have boarded everything was included and the BO and a few boarders would help with choes and such (they would do it to take off from their board). I hope everything works out with being able to go to a new place. The cost of a bridle and pad are nothing compared to your overall well being... Good Luck

I wish you lived close. I'd give you a bridle and a saddle pad. If I were you, I'd buy the bridle and pad and go. If that other lady is a trainer then you'll go miles with her anyway and you'll have a fresh new start and won't have to deal with attitude or "the veronica's" of the barn.... You'll be much happier.

Sorry to butt in, but I find the concept of 'boarding' very strange.

We have agistment centers over here, where you keep your horse, you pay for the paddock/stable, feeding & rugging etc, but we're not expected to help run the place, just keep our area clean, nor do we have use of the owners tack.

I guess if I was in your situation, I'd be telling the BO where to stick her barn (politely of course )

Thankfully I have my own acreage and don't have to go by anyone elses rules
