How can I tell the lady at the barn I don't want to hear her stories?
There is a new lady at the barn. She owns a two year old Fresian/Andalusian who she named Shadow and her daughter owns a yearling Hanoverian, Indy. They are both really nice ladies, but the mom won't be quiet about her horses and what she is doing. I feel like she is cutting in on my time with my horse with her chatterboxing.... She stood there the entire time I was brushing him yesterday, talking about how she was going to worm her horse and blah blah blah.
Does anyone have an idea on how to politely let her know I just want to work with my horse? I don't want to be mean nor do I not want to ever talk to her.
