I live on the property so mine is rent and board. I usually hand it to my landlord or put it in the drop box by his back door. Doesn't matter... I pay three months' worth at a time due to the way I get paid, and invariably I get asked for the next installment at the wrong time. So then I go to my online banking, find a picture of the check, send it to my landlord to show what I had written on the front. I also keep a running spreadsheet that I email to him with every payment. And between payments. And every time he questions what I've paid for. Or asks when he can expect the next one.
The funny thing is that the last time this happened he said "Great, thanks -- between the two of us we have a handle on EVERYTHING!" I so wanted to ask what part he was contributing, since without him "we" have a handle on everything!

Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?
Usually tucked away somewhere in my grooming tote. This month's check was left in the bag of treats in my grooming tote. Unless I see the BO in person then I just hand it to her directly. When I don't see her I send her an email so she knows when and where I left it.
A farm I worked at last summer, my boss would leave my pay check in the freezer with the grain. It was a private farm, no boarders so not likely anyone else would find it.
Bill pay for the board since I am out of the country. I once brought blank checks for the farrier when I was in town and left them in the microwave for the BO. It's a 7 stall barn with 5/7 horses being the BO, so I wasn't worried. Too funny all the random places.
I email the payment. I love that it is out of my account and in to the BO account and done. I have had lost checks and this just makes me happier. If the BO does on line banking then I can email my payment.

Last barn had a locked box next to the office to put it in. Previous barns every where from desk drawer to on the front door. My past trainer asked us never to hand her payment as she often ended up washing checks in her jeans pockets. We always paper clipped to her calender in the office.
