    Wish this had been around when I had my Evil Mare in work. Maybe it would have helped her. Nothing else did.

    Or the OP is a troll. Don't just threaten; put some teeth into your request for the papers. Call an attorney and have him/her send a letter to the former owner.

    Finding a boarding barn within a 45 minute drive of downtown is a tall, if not impossible, order. There's a little bandbox-size barn in Littleton, but no turnout to speak of. Used to be called...
