Clean Barn Obsession
I have a "clean barn" problem. I don't understand how people can work around their barn if it's dirty and un-organized. I guess when I clean and organize it...I feel like it is benefitting to me and my horse. Seriously, when I walk into a dirty barn I am tempted to do a full on clean to it!:lol: Does anyone else have this diesese??

I do! Rule at our barn is everything has to be SPOTLESS when we leave, I take it above and beyond. It's great to come in the next day having everything where it's supposed to be!

I do. Its horrible. I hate things being out of place or just overall messy, I think its a good thing. (:

This lady from my church sometimes has me come and ride her horses...her barn is such a mess though. So I asked her one day if she needed "help" around the barn. She said "oh no..its pretty clean already, there would'nt be much to do". Yeah right!!!

Don't feel bad...there was a lady boarding at the barn down the road that would put on gloves, get down on her knees, and look through the bedding in her horse's stall for little pieces of poop after the BM had cleaned it (and the BM really did do a very good job in the stalls).

WOW. now thats pathetic!

I did have it. I have overcome. If all the people I board with wanna be lazy bums...let em! My stuff is organized...the rest of the barn really isnt my problem!

Yep totally! Im not as anal to pick through a stall w my hands to look for poo-bits lol....but I CANNOT stand a messy barn!

I have this disease so bad...that I will often clean everything up spotless and high tail it out of the barn, before boarders show up, cuz if they are there before I have a chance to leave at the end of my day....Ill never leave, as I find im just following them around cleaning up after them as my standards are jst too my theory out of sight out of it was spotless when I left :)

Yup, used to have this disease really bad. I used to wash the barn walls once a month. (seriously!) It went into remission but I've been having twinges lately. We are starting a long remodel of our barn (new roof, moving walls, etc.) and everything is a mess. Some days I just can't stand it.
