    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

    It comes down to your personal requirements. I don't thing anyone can answer it for you. Sit down with a piece of paper and write down the pros and cons of each choice. That always helps me, to see it on paper.
    As far as an ex-boyfriends mom, it would come down to how you left the relationship. Also how often would you have to actually interact with her?
    Again, there are so many variables you need to do a "pro/con list"

    To me, it would be worth a lot, and by the sounds of it, worth a lot to you as well as you are already emailing her with questions.

    To the next might not matter.

    $50 a month is more than worth all of the free advice you have been getting.

    Thanks for the replies, guys.

    Vidaloco - I'll try that. :)

    I would definitely pay extra for a place I was comfortable and for people I trust. I would rather be confident that my horse is being well taken care of.

    I am always shocked at how cheap board is in other parts of the country compared to where I live. Pasture board where we are is 450$!

    So, I agree with above posters.
