    I've found the CT version of a Stableman's Lien, thanks to Ambitious Kate, and it looks pretty straightforward. I'll suggest to the barn owner that he show it to his lawyer, and contact our local...

    Linda, I think the idea of stopping by the address that's on her check is a good one. That's where the registered letter was sent that was returned unopened. Bauhaus, we found her Facebook...

    Bingo! Thanks so much! Looks like CTs stableman's liens are pretty straightforward. Thanks for all the helpful suggestions.

    Sounds like the lien process is the best way to go. Thanks for the UVM link, Guillgerme! Good idea about calling animal control, too. Our barn owner really doesn't want to own another horse, but...

    Nothing trolly, here, really. We've been waiting to see if the boarder re-surfaces before getting serious about taking action. Barn owner is very understanding, and very willing to work with...

    Great advice, thanks! A lawsuit what we're trying to avoid.
  7. Dead-beat Boarder: What are the legal options?

    We have a situation at our barn that has never come up before. A young woman dropped off her horse mid-June, and paid a pro-rated board to the end of the month. No one has seen her since June, and...

    Doesn't a regular worming regime take care of bots? All of the horses at our barn are wormed on a rotation, and none of them have bots.

    My vet suggested we start my horse on ranitidine (Zantac) tablets to see if he feels better just by having less of a sour/irritable stomach. It seems to have helped a lot, so I'll be putting him on...

    And even if you don't end up saving any money, you'll have fabulous souvenirs. I love the hat I bought (but totally didn't need) at the SRS. Lots of great memories.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions! I bet one of them will work.
  13. Convincing our horses their water won't hurt them

    We finally got the electric fence working all around the paddocks (good, yay!) but somehow, the hose that fills the water tank for four of the horses got laid across the wire and put a current into...

    My horse really likes the Supracor pad I got last summer. Super-thin and doesn't change the fit of his saddle.

    My horse has been super picky about finishing off his Lyme meds. I got him to join the clean plate (bucket) club by soaking a couple of alfalfa cubes and mixing those with his grain and meds.

    Sorry to hear about your pony. I struggled for most of last spring and summer trying to figure out what was making my horse's back sore. The saddle fitter came out twice and adjusted, massage...

    How about instrumental arrangements of music from Bizet's opera, Carmen? Lots of variety of tempo and mood, and it's very recognizable.
  18. Congrats for getting on! I've found that...

    Congrats for getting on! I've found that sometimes my frustration with being a nervous rider outweighs my fear, and I just get the f$@k on, no matter what. Not very often, though. Early on, I...

    I've had very good experiences buying refurbs directly from Apple.com. The refurbs come with a guarantee. Happy hunting!

    We have one elderly barn cat and she's smart enough to stay well clear of the rats. What we need is a way to protect around 30 bags of grain at a time. Metal garbage cans wouldn't hold enough. Thanks...

    Thanks for all the great ideas--we hadn't thought about a four-legged rat-killer. I love the cunning trap suggestions, too. Will pass them on to the barn owner.

    Rats!

    Our barn has suddenly acquired some VERY hungry rats who have chewed open the grain bags and helped themselves. I'd love to know how others keep their grain rat-proof. The problem is finding a...

    I came off twice this spring and those falls really did a number on my confidence, even though they were't really serious. The real damage was that I stopped trusting my horse, and he knew it. He'd...

    Why not download it and open it up when you're in range of WiFi to save on data? Then you'd know what to put on before you leave for the barn. Just a thought.
