I don't know exactly where to put this so, mods if it's in the wrong section please feel free to move it.
I now work 2 jobs, one at a bar 3 nights out of the week and at the barn I want to bring Beau to 6 days a week. Both jobs I make a decent amount of money.
My current barn (rough board) is starting to bring more drama and more arguments between me and another boarder (who just moved there mind you). I only pay $200/month at the rough board place and the new place ranges from $710 to $740. It's a big change in price and it's also full board.
I'll start into the pros and cons in a little bit. I feel like we need to move, not only for my horse but to get away from all the drama once and for all. This new boarder already started a whole bunch of crap, that I completely ignore but it's just ughh and it's everytime I see the girl, it's the same stuff.
I told my BO that I was disgusted with the paddock and the way it looked and with that she said fine and put RCA down, now the paddock looks nice but now with her, she complains every day about something new. She knows I work all week so sometimes I'm in late to feed and she can't stop complaining. Pretty much the place I'm at now, is just becoming to much.
I spoke to my fiancee and we did the math of how much I can afford for board a month and yes I can afford the $710 to $740 a month. Especially with my steady income right now.
Pros about this new place, first off I work there, I know the feeding schedule, the stalls get cleaned day and night, they have water at all times, indoor ring(winter riding), 2 outdoor rings, trainers on premises, turnout, backing up to trails and to top it off ALL the horses are fat and well taken care of. I really don't have any cons.
I know he'll be taken care of the proper way and everyone is so nice there.
I really want to leave this place I'm at now. I just can't stand it anymore and my horse just needs better conditions. Not that this place isn't nice but still, I'm tired of the drama and being yelled at or always worrying about something.
I won't know about this place, the very latest Saturday morning when I speak with my boss but I don't know if I should tell my BO that he might be leaving or not say a word until I know for definite sure.
