    Turn out everyday is worth it. And I know of people who get paid $10 per stall they muck, so $50 extra a month isn't much at all.

    Moved him to the new barn today. Funny thing is, there is another Mustang called Whiskey at the new barn that he's going to be pasture buddies with! Right now they have him in the round pen to get used to the place and other horses. His pasture buddies are going to be mares. Lol

    Just thought I'd add something funny about yesterday. When I was watching Wiski settle in I was talking to one of the gentlemen that was there loading some hay in a truck. We were talking about natural horsemanship and all and he said he knew Pat Parelli personally... He also said parelli is a bit 'off' in the head. OH YA and that he works with his horses for MONTHS in advance to any of his videos and clinics. He said, "Parelli works with his horses twice daily, that's why everyone thinks he's so good"

    Most places are a 30 day notice. But I think the new place sounds great. Turnout is SO important for your horse. I would switch on that alone, not to mention they will clean your stall for you and provide feed for the small difference in price. Good luck!

    As far as the notice went, I called the other BO before I moved him or made any solid plans and she said that if I wanted to move before the beginning of next month it was no problem whatsoever. I offered to stay till the end of next month but she was insistent that it was fine. They are very nice people who own my old barn so we're on good terms.

    Your horse will be much happier with daily turnout. I don't know how I feel about Pat Parelli. I think he comes off as arrogant sometimes but I don't believe that he isn't good. I think he may be somewhat of a jerk though.

    Update: He is SO much happier now!!! He's the horse I went and bought again! He MIGHT even be kid safe in time with some work. It's WELL worth the money to see him so happy with life.
