An Interesting Visitor...funny and insane all at the same time!
The other day my friend and I were getting ready for a horse show. My friend was braiding my horse down with thread and then I was going to bump the braids. While this was happening a woman came into the barn and said "cool, you're putting in hair extensions.
She then asked for the BO and told us that she had just bought her first horse a year ago and that she had always wanted to run a farm and was going to be taking over our boarding barn.
Meanwhile she walked over to a flea bitten grey in the barn and asked us if it was a leopard spot because she "had seen it in a magazine." We were freaking at this point.
She told us she has read in books all about how to run a barn and is going to make "improvements."
The thing that really got us was that she seemed either slow, or on drugs. Not sure but her speach pattern was a bit odd.
That was very considerate of the nut case to warn you what's going to happen to the care at the barn--now go barn shopping before all the other boarders get the spaces at the nice barns and you come back here with a thread about getting your horse away from this nut.
I had a similar odd experience with the person telling me how much she loved my horse that she was going to ride him and etc.... Later I learned that the person was learning impaired and / or developmentally challenged adult.

Tha lack of knowledge + the comment of "making improvements" would worry me on their own, let alone put together. Put the hair extensions down and pack that trailer and load them hosses
Time to get out of dodge!
