I just got a call from the barn I wanted to go to. I can go there at the beginning of next month or beginning of June.
FYI This is the difference in the barn where I'm at to the one I want to go to.
They'll feed twice daily
Large box stall
Indoor bathing station w/hot and cold water
does not include:
Turnout - only have one day a week to turn outdoors
The barn I want to go to:
$225 partial care
Grass and or alfalfa hay
Twice daily feedings
Daily turnout - weather permitting (24/7 in summer)
Indoor bathing station w/hot and cold
Lots of trails right off property
Full care $275 = they'll muck out the stall for me... but with turn out all day in summer won't need to very often.
So... opinions... should I switch barns? I pay $75 or so a month on hay and so I'm pretty much paying $175 for what I have right now... so it's only about $50 dollars more per month...
I guess I'm asking, would you consider it worth it to have turnouts and trails and not to worry about buying hay? Oh ya... and having a round pen available...
