Not the best premis. That's why I generally avoid them.
This one sounds very nice though.
LOL, thanks for the vote of confidence! :-p Just kidding, but yeah, I understand what you mean. It's going to stay small though, she is not advertising at all. It's basically going to be a barn with just a bunch of friends. I won't have to worry too much though, I go out every stinking day lol and my horse will be outdoor board. We will see!

A few months ago when I was first looking to move Thunder, I found a co-op barn. He said that if someone couldnt make it out that day to do their part or had work schedule change, ect. Then he picked up the slack. You should also find out what happens if you or someone else can't make it out.
Yeah, I will for sure ask about that. When it comes to the care of my horse I have confidence where I usually don't! Lol I already MADE SURE that when everything is all ready for us to move, that we have a meeting to set up days and go through the motions of things so everyone who will be doing chores know's exactly what to do, what feed goes with who, hay, etc. I'm a slave driver, hahaha.
