    I didn't like it because I just feel like they are leaving stuff out and that they want to train your horse.... idk just my gut feeling

    Glad you found a stable you like! I liked that one too. Are you going to move sonny there for sure then?

    Indoors are nice but you can survive without them. I grew up without one and had a section of a field to ride in... it sucks in the winter though but I could still ride on the road when the ice wasnt built up or I hauled somewhere (if my trailer wasnt snowed in)... I wish you the best of luck in finding a place

    We are going to board there.....we convinced my dad...and anyways even if he said no I still would since Sonny is mine hehe.
    They said they salt down the arena in the winter so it is rideable...but I wouldn't do more than a walk/trot for fear of Sonny tripping.

    The owner said she'd transport Sonny to her stables, so I e-mailed her on when would be the soonest time to transport him. Hopefully it will be before the 24th because my board is due then. Wish us luck on getting him out ASAP

    We are going to get the plans finalized for transporting first before we tell her. We are going to tell her the day before we leave...hopefully we'll transport him Thursday...so we'd tell her Wednesday morning....and be there early morning Thursday....like 8 am before the BO is out...we will get him already, put him in another pasture, clean his pasture to make sure it's clean before we leave, and then make sure everything is back in it's proper place that we might have moved.

    Sonny broke one of her water buckets (no idea how...I honestly don't think he did it...I think that the BO actually did it) so I'm leaving her my heated water bucket.

    I already bought myself a bridle, reins, saddle pad....just need to get grooming supplies....I forgot that I need that lol....mine that I have is really old

    Just make sure your original contract didn't say anything about you giving notice. I'd imagine your BO isn't going to be too happy with the short notice.

    I checked it over and it did not. My mom and I made up the contract since the BO did not have one (because she usually doesn't accept boarders), so the contract is easy to get out of on our part.
    I know she won't be happy...we kinda figure when we first tell her she'll be really silent and not really say anything, but she'll give crap to me when my mom leaves. So I'm hoping that she'll stay the whole time so I'm not "harrased" (if that's the word you want to use).

    So I made a check list of what I have to do before I leave...we will clean Sonny's pasture out so there is no manure in it when we leave. I'll dump and clean the water buckets so they will be all nice and clean for the next horse that comes.
    I am making a list of what is all mine so if she accuses me of taking something of hers I can show her the list and show her the items I'm taking.

    Congrats on your move! I just finished months and months of barn searching and found the PERFECT place for my horse. I had to be on a waiting list. I took a lesson and fell in love with the stable and trainer anddd BO. I worked out a contract and were moving on the 1st.

    Its stressfull though. So I deffantly know how you feel
