    If your ridding togeather with the horses they should know each other to a point, we turn mares and geldings out togeather all the time....when a "owner" say's there fine that sends up a red flag to me, by vetting them it's better to find out before then after!!! Just becareful next time!! You mentioned that the barn you looked at today that it was a ware house type setting?, how many horses and how long do they get turned out evey day and if our 2 horses get turn out togeather do they get twice the turn out time? And have you talk to other people boarding at this new stable that you looked at?

    Well maybe its more like a big shed than a warehouse. There are 30 horses all together, but there would be my 2 guys and another horse living in stalls together. In the fall/spring they are out pretty much 24/7 except when the weather's bad. They are in day time out night in summer, and out day in night during the winter. We didnt talk to other people there, mainly because no one else was there and it was early in the day were boarders wouldnt be there because of their jobs. They were very nice people there, but we don't want to jump into somewhere and go through the same stuff again.

Once we buy a piece of property, our horses are coming with us so we'll do it our way. But for right now its a long search. Thanks so much Jazzy, you are so supportive, and so is everyone else you has responded!!! You have no idea how much this has helped. At first I thought it was just me and my boyfriend, but its not. Thanks again to everyone!!
    ah ok fair enough :) glad I could be of some help to you :)

    As already said be really really careful. Its easy enough for people to appear nice when you first meet them. I guess talking to the people who agist there if you can would be a good thing to do.

    Take care, good luck and be careful :)

    Well my boyfriend and I were talking the other day and he wants to get a property in the spring, but keep them at the current place. I don't really like this idea, but I don't know what to do. I've tried talking to him, but he just wont listen. So i'm just waiting for spring to come. I'll let everyone know if the plans change and we move them.

    Uummm, do you really have to listen to him!!, half the time I just pretend i'm listening to my husband, (you'll chat on when you get married) if he wont move his horse out of that barn what is stopping you from moving yours???he might catch on after that
        10-25-2007, 12:29 AM
    He's said I could move her, but I don't know. It would be hard going to 2 stables with 1 car. We'll see after a week when there is more bull**** to put up with. Then we'll probably be back to looking at a place.

    Now that sounds weird. Why doesnt he want to move now? Does he understand the stress you are going through and the fact that your horses health and your own sanity is at risk? If that sounds cranky it wasnt meant to I just think its a little unfair that he is not supporting your want to move.

    Hopefully, as you said, he will notice in time. It is always hard when your partner doesnt agree with something you so badly want. If there is something my husband is fighting me on that is really affecting me, I tell him straight up that I need to talk to him about something that is very serious to me. He is then prepared for something. If you havent already, try explaining to him that this is a situation that is making you very uncomfortable and is upsetting you. Usually once I explain things to my hubby, he gets that its not a whim, its something that needs to be done. Sometimes men find it easy to ignore things as they don't have the emotional reactions that women have.

    Whatever you decide to do, I hope it all works out for you. Im rather sad for you that you now have to deal with the possibility of not moving.

    Good luck, take care
