    If it was your personal bucket, I'd bring h*ll down..buckets do not get switched between horses (even our own, who are on pasture, when we bring them in) unless someone wants to sanitize them.

    It was not my personal bucket, but one owned by the barn that I had permission from the BO to use. The bucket I put in her stall tonight its my personal bucket, so I really hope it doesn't get moved.

    I think that in this day and age, with cell phones and texts they should have asked. In the end of the day, its your property not barn property for use willy nilly. And you should never leave a horse without water. I would speak to your barn manager about it. Its not a huge deal but what other stuff of yours are they borrowing? Also what if your horse or their horse was ill?

    Technically wasn't my bucket, but as I said I has permission from the BO to use it for a few nights. I texted the BO when I saw the bucket was moved and she didn't seem to care at all about what had happened, which is what made me think that I was kind of blowing it out of proportion.

    Buckets are cheap. I would have been pissed, but the next step is to buy your own personal bucket. Get a permanent marker and write your name and your horses name on it and a "FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY - DO NOT REMOVE FROM STALL" on it - the people who you are talking about will get the point.

    If there is power next to your horses stall, you could get a nice heated one... put it in your horses stall and that should do it :)

    Now that I put my own bucket in her stall I realize that I should have put my name on it. Oh well, it's too late to do it now tonight!
    It is highly unusual for it to be this cold here so a heater would be a waste of money. Usually we stay in the upper 30's as the coldest we ever get. This is actually the coldest we've been since the 1980's!

    I wish we didn't freeze, we are in Colorado and the high today was in the teens, lows tonight - zero.

    Well, since it wasn't your personally owned bucket and your horse was not left without water, I'd be hard pressed to get my panties in too much of a wad, but that's just me.

    Yeah, you're right. I've has some issues with this particular boarder in the past so I think this just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm calming down about it now though.

    Ive never boarded any horse in a stable before so correct me if Im wrong but why is she even opening your horses stall in the first place? I would be ticked off at the fact she had the nerve to unlatch and open the stall door then proceed to go into the stall you pay monthly for. Maybe I don't understand the dynamics of a stable. Whats mine is mine. Don't touch my horse, don't touch my things and don't go in the pasture with my horse, just say away. You have no business.I would never go into someone else's stall, pasture whatever. I don't think I could handle a stable environment lol.

    You asked if you were over-reacting.....YES. Relax.....next time the weather gets cold again, get two small buckets tie them in your horses stall using a big nasty knot with binder twine and fill em......just in case YOUR pipes freeze. Now you know for next time....you cannot change the other boarder.....but you can be prepared and make it very difficult for her to move your water buckets without either cutting them down or getting sloshed all over......
