    I seriously worry about some of the silliest things when it comes to horses. Really. Don't worry or apologize, you have something to be legitimately disappointed about. I'm glad that you checked on your horse and did the responsible thing. Maybe it is just an unresolved issue, but I would be angry too knowing that my horse did not have access to water. Yes, it proves your point that the pipes may have frozen! Keep up the good work, and you may need to put a sign or consult her and suggest using another bucket because that one is for your horse. Maybe write her name on the bucket, or have a sign that says "please do not remove water bucket"

    Paintlover17, I am in the White Mountains (Arizona) and is is supposed to be 3 degrees F tonight, so count your blessings. I have tank de-icer with two of our horses, and it is positioned so the 3rd horse can hopefully reach through and get a drink when his own water freezes. I am giving them basically free-choice hay so they can keep warm. The chickens have a heat lamp. I put an electric pipe wrap on our outdoor water faucet. It is a frost-free and not supposed to freeze, but who wants to take a chance in this kind of weather?

    It is so cold, I give the horses feed and treats and don't even think about riding. We also have snow. But it will all be worth it in the summer when Phoenix is over 100 degrees.

    I'm sure your girl will be fine.

    And yes, I would be irritated about the bucket incident too!

    What if she went in to your horses stall, and your horse FREAKED for some wierd reason and she GOt kicked in the head and DIED ! Or what if she didnt shut the door properly.Your horse got out and ate something it shouldnt have got colic died/nearly died or what if your horse got out and got really hurt ! ... that's just an example of what could happen if the door wasnt closed properly or if the horse got out.
    She has some nerve and lack of respect to open the stall door ... You are not overeacting at all ! But I think your overreacting over a point that doesnt matter as much. I would be overeacting over that she opened the door ! I would get very paranoid if people such as her were at my barn !

    I agreebwith whoever said they'd be pissed that somebody just waltz into your horses stall without permission. What if your horse "not that she is" was green? Or fresh? Or didn't like people? Or spooky? And what if she had gotten hurt by your horse? Anyway I thinkmyou do have right to be pissed, but you should also let it go, talk to the woman who took your bucket, maybe she was in a rush and didn't have time to get a new bucket and forgot to text and ask. I'd alsonget a personal water bucket.

    I really would not like anyone going in my horses stall and taking anything without permission. You just don't do that. What ever happened to barn etiquette? For that matter, just general good manners. Since when did it become ok to just go and get something that someone else is using?

    Heck, I'd be mad about someone taking something out my empty stall. I'd be down right livid if someone took something out of my stall while my horse was in it.

    I just don't understand why that kind of thing would be o.k. With anyone.

    I would be absolutely LIVID if someone came into my horse's stall to take something without my permission, even if it was a borrowed "barn" bucket. The fact remains is that it was your stall and your horse! Not being one to mince words, the next scene between me and that person would not be a pretty one!

    She didn't necessarily have to go in Ambers stall to get the bucket out. They are pipe stalls and the bucket was near the edge so it would have been simple to just drag it out.

    Maybe it's just me, however I wouldn't take a bucket out of another's horses stall to use. If my horse was without water, I would find or buy another to use and not snitch one from someone else's horse. If someone did that to me, I would do what the OP did, put my own personal bucket in there & write my name on it, then if it's taken after that, I would say something.
