I thought it might be interesting to look at the Crazy Barn Owner from their perspective. Boarder tied horse to stall grills instead of tie ring ( rules state clearly to only tie to tie rings). Horse pulls back pulling the stall grill out, panics injures itself needs stiches. Cost me $500+ to repair grill and the added bonus is I get to treat horse wounds 2X's a day and give antibiotic. Boarder tied horse to arena rail and let horse dig pit in the arena subfloor and tear up the barrier material after paying $20,000 to have the arena floor done....again clearly stated in the rules. Boarder tied horse to water hydrant, horse pulled back and pulling out hydrant and 4 feet of water line. Water fountain flooded barn and a $600 water bill and a $700 plumbing bill. While not tying to the water hydrant is not specifically stated in the rules..it does state not to tie to any thing but a tie ring. 5 AM feeding boarders horse did not drink enough or poop. Call all boarders numbers, including the emergency number, still can not contact at 8, I have to call in an emergency day off work and meet the vet for boarders horse. Boarder finally calls me back the next day to see how horse is. Boarder turns their mare out in pasture with stallion. Boarder stands horse next my new truck in the house driveway, horse kicks in the back fender...rules state clearly that house, yard and vehicle area are off limits. Boarders horse is IR and had previously foundered, I make a special trip to buy special tested hay, carefully weigh hay and stuff feed into nibble net. I provide supplement for IR horse. Owner fills 3 gallon pan with carrots, apples and horse cookies when they come to visit. Boarder puts blanket that is too big on horse,Boarder told that they should not use that blanket, Horse gets leg caught in strap and cast itself in stall. I have to go in stall with 1300 pound panicked horse and cut blanket off. Boarder tells me that my husband is not allowed to feed or clean for her horse when I go out of town because he is a big, bald, biker with piercings and tattoo's and this makes him unacceptable. Now you know just a small sample of why I am a crazy barn owner, and why I now only do limited boarding.
