I am also a baling twine Nazi in my own barn coming from experience as a boarder having to pick twine, even chewed on ones,s out of my stall, field, etc. Yes, to err is human, but when it is a consistent problem or the barn has loose piles of twine everywhere, you have to wonder what else are they not paying attention to! I operate my own barn now and the policy is cut, pull, fold over and knot, then and dispose of hay strings in the designated bag BEFORE it even comes out of the hay room. I also keep a zip lock bag in the office of trash and objects I’ve found in bales as a visual to reinforce how important it is to do a quick inspect of flakes being fed out and checking the stalls for foreign objects while filling the water buckets.
