SADDLES: Somepeople were stealing saddles, a girl found hers on Ebay because they stupidly forgot to take the name plates off. Luckily the more expensive ones , like mine (not trying to brag!) weren't taken because of the serial numbers. Now they lock up the saddle room.

HOT HANDS (HAND WARMERS): I brought a huge costco pack of handwarmers to the place I board at during the winter. I left them out on a desk one night on accident and people thought they were free for everyone to take (they hadnt even been opened!) and 3 days later they were gone except for the box and a note saying "who ever left the hand warmers thanks!"! They cost about 35$ which wasnt too bad it just ticked me off that the people thought that anything that was there was free for them to take or used.

Hey, they said thank you!

Honestly, if I found a huge box of something like that sitting on the desk like you describe I would probably assume that someone bought it for the people at the barn to use too.

I've been riding my friend's horse at shows lately so he can lose some weight and he uses a hackamore. Well after every event I take the hackamore off and hang it on the horn of the saddle....I went back for the last event to ride him(i had to switch from my horse to his horse so there's not too much time between which horse I ride) and the hackmore was gone...thinking he shook and it fell off I looked everywhere around him and under the trailer could not find it ANYWHERE...I had to borrow someone elses......the funny thing is the next week the lady who took it used it on her horse and we confronted her about it...her excuse was we weren't using it (so that automatically makes it yours...i think not). Some people ..........but this lady is known to do stuff like this all the time especially to her boarders. :/

Not really stolen, I suppose. Just sort of funny.

When we bought Ben (the donkey), he came with a ratty, faded-pink halter that had rubbed a sore on his face. So we took it off, put a better fitting one on and threw the pink one away...

Only to find it on one of the BO's horses the next day. No clue why, but he picked it out of the trash, washed it and used it. One man's trash is another man's treasure, I suppose.

We have used halters, it doesnt have to be pretty, just has to work. And the best part is we mostly get them for free (though we also have a couple decorated halter, they are only used on special occasions)

I've never had anything stolen. I must have crummy stuff, huh?

But, when I was working on a STB training facility, someone tried to steal my female boxer dog~!!

It was Sunday afternoon, so not too many people were around. Two grooms were in the hay shed and saw an old pickup, with two guys in it, come driving in. They got out of their truck at the front of the barn where my dog was sitting. The two grooms heard the one guy say: "Man, look at that dog~!! She's worth some money~!! Come on, let's get her."

The two grooms had to cover their mouths so the guys wouldn't hear them snickering. My dog stood up as they approached, growled a low, deep growl, and went at them~!!

It was all they could do to get back in the truck fast enough without her ripping the seats out of their jeans. She then chased the truck, barking and jumping at the driver's side window, all the way to the road. : )

Steal my dog, will ya ~!!

Muhahahahaha~!!


If you keep on arguing with me, I'm going to have to roundpen you.

My helmet was stolen once. I was not too happy about that. But the same people stole my halter, my leadrope and a bunch of grooming supplies. And then they left the barn and I have no way of contacting them... I even rode their horse for them because they asked me to and this is how they repay me.

Most of my halters look pretty bad, too, and I don't care. It's simply *how* bad this halter was, and the fact that the BO had plenty of other halters.

I mean, it was ratty (fabrick shredding at one end, worn everywhere); brackets were rusty, and hard to close; it had somehow been stretched on one side, so it was lop-sided; it was caked in puss and blood from Ben's injury.

But, whatever. :P He did at least clean it before putting it on the horse.

I've never had anything stolen, but I did let a fellow boarder borrow my open front boots. When I asked for them back so I could clean them her response was, "You can't have them yet, I'm still using them." She was serious, too. I've also had a few bridles borrowed, broken, and not replaced. My new policy is "you can't use it if you can't afford it."
