Sonny good for you for being able to handle this difficult situation and finding a way of improving things for yourself and your horse. Keep us updated on the move and the new goings of the new barn. Nothing better than having a good barn to board at :) happy to hear you were able to find that new place.

wow, that sucks. She just seems like a wack I mean keep it straight lady! I really hope you find a good barn or this new one will work out, the web site looked nice. (well someone has html probs) I know what you mean about grain! I swear someone took some of my multi vits. They went by way to quick. And they are expensive too! There is just so much drama with barns...

thanks Ginger and I would buy the one u have, but Sonny won't respond to one with a noseband. I tried it once and he wouldn't go at all lol. So I have to use western bridles.

I was thinking of just seeing how stopping lessons and just going up in the afternoon when the BO wasn't there would be, but I know she's be totally upset with me stopping lessons and would try to talk me into doing private lessons, but I've got an excuse for not taking lessons at least. But I know that I'd still have to see her around sometimes, sadly.
So I don't know what to do...I mean I want to leave and I feel Sonny would be better taken care of if I moved, so I am e-mailing around...but the one downfall to living in NY...hardly any places have pasture board. So I am limited to the places.

I'll keep ya all updated...if worse comes to worse I'll board Sonny at a place closeby and see if they'd do pasture board...but the one downfall to that is their arena is downhill so it's scaries lol

the arena is downhill? Thats so weird ive never heard of one being down hill. Why would they put it were a slope would be? That would be scary.

Well i have already gave sonny my 2 cents about this issue but i will say it again. I believe you should switch barns, from what i have heard about this BO it sounds like just a flat out mean person. I she not treat her constumers as if they where regular people or whatever. The more she treats her costumers like this the less people will want to board at her stables.

Seriously just leave and move on, you deserve better. Your a great girl Jenny, and i think you and sonny deserve better.


I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

Holy moly! Hit e-bay and pick up a bridle and pad and be on your merry way!!! OMGOSH! No one deserves to be treated that poorly and overall from the past posts you have had I would say that you have been more than tolerant of the shananigans at that barn. I hope you and sonny can move to the barn you have been talking about! I'm sure it would be good for the BOTH of you!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

well I'm going to swing by tack shops and see what they have on consignment for bridles. I'll by a nylon bridle if I have to. I've used one before and though it was annoying I'll live

As for a saddle pad, I can find a cheapy somewhere....or I can see if any of my friends is sellign one.

But I'm defiantely moving him.

Wish is luck...I need to find a place to take him, someone to transport him, and then find out how to break the news to the BO

HELP! Any ideas on, after I find everything, on how to break the news to the BO?
I want to give her enough notice, BUT I don't want to also because I don't know what she'd do....helpppp

It is too bad the BO is being so very difficult.. I think she needs to take some meds.. Effexor works for me.. Keeps me from biting peoples heads off for stupid stuff, just like that. Trust me.. it's probably a hormonal problem with the B.O..

Anyway, Just wanted to give you a high 5 for putting up with her for so long. As for breaking the news, just tell her you have decided to move to a different barn. You do NOT have to explain why, it's your horse.. Her loss..

You really should have your own gear, you don't want to have to ask the BO for that kind of stuff, especially when she's acting that way toward you.

How soon will you be able to move? Do you have to give notice?

As far as the 'unload' hay part - I would have expected unload meant to unload and put the hay away. It's not really helpful to the Bo to just have someone unload the hay and not put it away.

Good luck!

she said I could use it...I never asked...she offered
I have all my own gear besides a saddle pad and bridle...I had my own bridle, but it broke
As soon as I find a GOOD place to board him is when I'll move him. My contract didn't say I had to give notice, so I don't think I'd need to. I'm thinking that I might just give her a weeks notice and come every morning and night to make sure she is still doing everything she's supposed to....I"d feel bad if I didn't give notice, but I'm worried for Sonny's well being if I do

Well she's said to unload the hay before and just meant to take it out, not to put it away. Also the trailer was parked far away from the spot where it was supposed to three young girls trying to carry over 300 bales of hay to the spot isn't something they can do physically. It was a REALLY hot day and they came back SOAKING wet from just sweat. They can't drive the tractor or anything so it would be too much for them.

I'll keep ya all updated, I got an email back from one lady so I'll be able to see her stables sometime this weekend
