How much is friendliness and familiarity worth?
My mare is coming back off a lease that was cut about 3 months short unexpectedly, and I have had to find a barn to put her at very quickly. I decided against going back to the barn she was at because, well, my ex-boyfriend's mom boards her show gelding there, and I just feel it would be very akward having to see her all the time. That, and a few other complaints that I will refrain from voicing. I have mostly thought about moving her to the barn that the trainer who used to work with my gelding owns. She was very, very good with him and was nice and friendly. I email her questions all the time and she gladly answers them. Her barn is gorgeous. Etc. The only issue is that the pasture board there is $200, about $50 more than most places. Do you think that I should pay the extra to be in an environment that I feel at home in, or should I find something cheaper? Just looking for opinions. There's definitely not a right answer. Lol
