So I went to talk to my neighbors about Lacey living on their property and I was figuring on some sort of board but I was willing to pay because their set up is SO much better, health-wise, than where Lacey is now, right? Well, the guy asked me how much I was paying now and I told him "nothing" and he said "then you won't pay anything here either!" I then offered to pay him something but he said that as long as I looked after their llamas and filled up their bird feeders (they spend a lot of time away from home, in Arizona) I could keep her there for free! She's going to have three acres ALL to herself, plus two llamas!! And two run in shelters that are really big.
I'm really excited! He also was like "how soon do you want her here?" And I was like "maybe sometime in the next two weeks?" and he said "No problem! She can be here as soon as you can get her here." !!!!!
I'm SO excited! This is what I've always wanted and all I had to do was make a call!
He also even told me that if I have issues getting her there trailer-wise, he knows some people who would most likely be more than willing to help me out!
But, this also presents a slight issue, what do I need to bring her home?
I have a saddle, saddle pad, bridle, halter, lead rope, basically everything riding-wise plus her blankets, but almost nothing grooming/care-wise.
So, I kinda need help making a list of things I need to groom her and keep her healthy over the winter...
I'm thinking I need:
- Curry comb
- soft brush
- hoof pick
- maybe a hard brush
- human hairbrush for tail
- bucket for supplements/whatever, to have one on hand
- maybe a lunge whip...
- some kind of tote for all this stuff
What else? I feel like that's a ridiculously short list...
