    I guess I've just confronted too many people for their sh*tty behavior and seen the ways it can go wrong. I've had several people try to hurt/kill me because I politely asked them to not litter, or...

    It's not about her feelings. I really couldn't care less about her feelings. It's just that arguing with someone who cares so little about other boarders' property or the horses' welfare or manners...

    Darn, you gave away my secret. I was actually searching for "breast-hop" and "funny picture of a sad drama" when I found that video.

    My point is that OP doesn't have any enforcement ability, and the boarder already KNOWS that what she's doing is wrong. Reminding her in a nasty tone (backed up with sarcasm at the end) that what...

    The boarder already KNOWS she's not supposed to feed the horses. She knows she's doing something wrong, and the only person who can solve this issue at this point is the BO. While I'm sure many of...

    Ignoring the fact that she could really hurt a horse by deciding that she knows better than the owners, it's just plain rude and disrespectful of others' property. I'd snitch if I saw it.
