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 u 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
