what to do???

what would yall do if you knew there was a young teen at your barn who chases the 28year old pony, who is only used for kids partys,all the time. holly's(pony) mom was told and she put a note up in he barn for whom ever to just stop the chasing....well, yesterday as i was pulling up to longe rayne i saw this girl in the pasture! then i see holly just running her little legs off, scared out of her mind. by the time that i walked into the barn. the girl jumped in the truck with her boyfriend and hauled a**. i called holly's mom(mimi) and told her what i saw. it is apparent that this will not stop. now i am worried about rayne...i rescued her and she is just begining to like people and trust. i cant have **** kids chasing her or anyone elses horse for that matter. i would like to put cameras in the barn...but ray(another horseowner) thinks that idea is "propostrous"...however i know that he was trying to scare rayne one evening b/c he dosent like that fact that i have a 2 year old recsue horse in the barn. he thinks rayne, and i are stupid. but whatever. he is just jealous......ok that turned into some what of a rant... sorry...any advice???

I'd say time to find a new place to board....but that's just me.
I'd talk to the BO and tell them that you are worried about your horse, and you don't want anything to ruin the trust that you have gained with her.

we have camera's in the barn i board at and they work great! When we didn't have the camera's someone kept coming in the barn and turning EVERY single light on, but when they got the camera's put up, it all stopped and now im not worried about someone messing with my horse

As much as it angers me to hear things like that, if it isn't your pony then it is up to the owner and/or barn manager to handle it. If it is your pony then if talking to her parents did nothing, I would call the police. Failing that idea, it's time to move to a new barn and that is a real consideration if you fear someone messing with your horses.

My farm backs up to a development and I always worry about kids (and dogs) getting in my pasture. So far I've been very fortunate.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
