I am not sure if this counts....our barn is located in our military housing community a few blocks from our house. It's a small private co-op/self help barn. We provide all our own food and do all our own work, cleaning, feeding and blanketing including 1 day a month we get together for a meeting and work day where we mend fences, clean out hay barn, clear trails...what ever has to be done :)
I really enjoy it. Boarding in CA was so boring...I love the work of owning a horse and the time just spent around them so this is ideal. We are a great community but some times it sucks cuz I am VP and my friend who is the President and I are the ones who have to get after people. We have had two people that neglect their horses and it just annoys the pee out of me.
