I love back yard boarding. I am not one who likes to be at a barn and this works out great for me. I rent the 20 acres, the barn and the converted chicken house with a pasture next to it for my daughter's minis. It is not pretty but it is perfect for me. My horses are the only ones on the farm and I love that. Just like having my own place, I just don't have to own a tractor and keep the drive free from snow :)

I hope this one works out for you and you and your friend have found the perfect spot!

Hour and a half count down before 'the move' and I haven't slept all night lol.

I just think that these first people didn't know a DARN thing about boarding, let alone 'back yard' situation. I always thought that doing it this way sounded better, more personal than just a facility. Though honestly, I haven't had the best of luck with either type of boarding situation lol.

Thank you for the good luck!!!

Yup, I can do whatever I want so long as I am respectful to the owners and the property, which I am anyway.

It's very laid back and has a nice...'homey' feel to it. I just hope someone wants to ride with me! hehe.

I think later today when I go out, I'll ride Caddy around the acreage and have a full looksee around the place. Maybe I'll have her go for a dip in the pond lol
