Well, I just hate switching barns I guess. Plus, if I do move, the only places available for the kind of riding/arena requirements happen to be farther away. It's going to be disappointing to the barn owner too, considering all 5 of us boarders are going to look at a place together on Saturday. We are quite the tight-knit group :) We've needed to be, since the farm owners don't pay enough attention. Good thing is, at the new place, there is an indoor that is just as big as the outdoor now and it is $75 cheaper than the current place, which btw, the outdoor has no lights.
What we all think happened, was that they built the new barn for themselves, and decided to have boarders to help pay for it, but they don't know the first thing about horse care. Nor do I think they really want to deal with other people in their space. They stall their horses even when it is gorgeous out, and they keep ALL of the barn doors shut and locked 24/7. (They aren't show horses that need to even be stalled btw.) Now, idk about you, but that just seems unhealthy for the horses. That means there is no ventalation because the upstairs is an apartment, so now roof vents either. Also, if there was a fire and the big doors were locked, how would someone get in fast enough to get them out? After all, we were told the other day that the heater in the barn bathroom was staying on. The wife has the horses, and she has never seen/been taught how to pull a mane? That's all fine and dandy if she prefers not to, but the fact that she didn't have the slightest clue how bothers me.
Gahhh, I hate talking bad about people, but sometimes ya just gotta let it out :/
