Honestly I don't think I could run a barn. I don't think Id want to. I would be fine with my horses on a few acres, and just my horses. It would put to much of a strain on my relationship with my partner. He's fine with me having two. But when it comes to taking care of other peoples horses he puts his foot down. Probably because I have a hard time saying no, and I will help anyone out, even if it means 3 more hours at the barn.
I don't think you're crazy. Do what makes you happy and what's best for you. My dad loves his guns. I think if need be we could arm the town militia lol. Its caused many fights with my parents, mostly over the money spent. When my dad makes a purchase, my mom is allowed to also. She usually gets some new furniture.
If you think it would be a better life you your son, well that's the most important thing. I used to board at this one barn, pasture board, for about a year. I didnt even know the BO had a baby, because she never brought her outside. She was afraid something would happen and she would wonder into the pasture, or into the busy drive way. It was kind of sad, because her older sister grew up at their old farm (less busy.)
