LOL dbArabians! I am not someone who enjoys drama. It just seems to be very common in barns.
I take the tactic of listening politely then changing the subject.
I feel a little sad because her main target is her adult daughter...a young person I consider a nice girl and an excellent horsewoman. I seek her out for advice because she is knowledgeable about horses. The BO is blaming her daughter for all her boarders moving out...because her daughter's horses are so well cared for (she does it herself, buying her own grain and hay) that the boarders expect the same care for our horses. So, she has set the bar too high. : /
I hate that giving notice has caused her problems. The good news is this latest drama has been a wake up call. The daughter was already working on a plan to move herself and her horses, get a job and go back to college. The drama confirmed for her that she is doing the right thing. She found out she got the job she interviewed for on Tuesday, her new place will be ready on December 1 and she's already looking at what classes she wants to take. I'm very happy for her and wish her luck as she finally spreads her wings.
