Stable Manager is a Scammer!

I found out the other day that the so called "stable manager" used all of Delilah's supplements for her horses and Delilah got none... On top of her not feeding her 2x's a day... WHICH WE PAID HER FOR! She rarely came out once a day, and my poor ol' mare has lost so much weight that we're almost back to square one... she was doing so well when I was doing all of the work, then got into a tiff with the BWORD of a "stable manager", and it was settled that she would do the work, and we would pay her... but NOPE.

My husband has been going through some surgeries, so I hadn't seen her in 3 weeks, so it was to my surprise that she lost 50lbs in that time! Not only did she not feed her, she used her chopped alfalfa, AND her WEIGHT BUILDING supplement for HER horses. How did I find this out? The property owner had to do feedings for a week and the horrible excuse for a "stable manager" told her to only give it to HER horses!!! I gave her a BRAND NEW TUB along with HALF of one 3 WEEKS AGO! Each one is a 32 DAY SUPPLY! And costs $30 each!!! That's 1 and a half months worth!!! PLUS A BRAND NEW BAG OF ALFALFA that we were using just to supplement her hay!!!

Got it worked out with the property owner that I will do all of her feedings myself, and provide everything (which we were already doing because the so called "stable manager" doesn't EVER keep grain OR hay onsite!) and only pay $75 for her board. Dealing with this Scammer is really upsetting! I have half a mind to tell the other boarders that their horses aren't getting any kind of supplementing out in pasture! Even though they believe they're getting supplemented with grain and hay 2x's a day! YEAH RIGHT! I've only seen her grain those horses out there maybe 5x's in the last 3 months!!!

So on top of everything I've been having to deal with her and how she does not keep anything on hand, grain or hay... The horses, (even her own) will go a week at a time without one of the two... for 3 weeks there wasn't grain... for one and a half weeks no hay!

Why is someone like this able to do business???

I've also found out by the owner of the property that she had a horse repossessed because she wasn't paying for her, when she told me that the horse wasn't fit and had an injury the previous owner didn't tell her about! So she has been ruining OTHER people's reputations! She didn't pay the last 2 hay people and had to have a half of a ton hay bale repossessed, which the hay guy had to take a loss on! And she's ALWAYS late for her board for her horses and she keeps getting more and more and more when she can barely take care of the ones that she has! This person shouldn't be able to do business! I feel sorry for anyone who comes in contact with her... She's a money sucking liar and a thief!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO TO STOP HER FROM DOING BUSINESS WITH THESE POOR PEOPLE?!!!

move barns? Although I guess if you'll be doing all the work now there is no need. If you plan on staying there i'd be wary to make commotion over this persons reputation. You don't want her harming your horse while you are not there. I would absolutely confront the woman (maturely, as you only have one side of the story) and ask her to refund your supplements and hay if she indeed stole them.

You're right... she's already pulled a lot of childish stunts... It's just so upsetting! She won't refund anything, I already asked, then she took the feeder buckets out of Delilah's stall, come to find out they aren't hers. And the property owner had to put them back.

Why is the property owner allowing her to stay?

The owner is a really sweet lady, but she would be losing out on board for 6 horses if she let her go, and she left. So she may be blinded by that fact. I would offer to do the work and pick up the slack if I thought it would do any good, but I have one horse vs. the six that the "stable manager" boards. I'm looking into some other places to board my sweet old mare, but it is the cheapest by far, but the work, and cost of everything is pretty substantial. Then again since it is the cheapest, maybe the "stable manager" would have to stay. Who knows? But I don't see anything changing in the near future...

I'm kind of stuck in a rut... the "stable manager" convinced me to get Delilah, which I'm glad I did, but I don't have any means of moving her. I drive 30 minutes back and forth to feed her twice a day like I used to, so I know she'll be fed. But moving her? That's where I'm at a loss. There are nice places that are in town, but this is my first experience boarding or even owning a horse, and I'm afraid that it'll keep happening.

You hire someone to mover her. Probably 50.00 to go 30 miles. Someone you know must have a trailer

Get your horse out and then rip her a new one! I mean, that's what I would do.

Live to ride. Ride to live.

moving your horse to somewhere closer will save on gas, which will really add up in the long run. Better places exist, I have no doubt.
