    I mean, where I board, I've been there since I was a LITTLE girl, about six years old. And we're so close over there, Im there for their family reunions, that's how close I am with the entire family. But idk im the type where I really don't trust anyone with my horse, except for my intructor, who is my close friend. No one understands him like I do, and he can be dangerous for the young ones at times just because he is a BIG boy. But I am still young to own property, and that sort of thing. Its just been on my mind. And where I board is the cheapest. You can't beat 175/month for them feeding, haying, everything. I can go there whenever I want to, anything there is for my use. So I pretty much have it made there. All of the other barns are 650 + which im not all up for that.

    Its just a plan for the future type of thing.

    The barn I moved from started out like that, 175/month plus 15 if I wanted a stall that lead out to a SMALL paddock. So 190 wasn't bad when most barns, like where my cousin was boarding at, were at 450.
    I stole that stall ;-D

    I guess you could say I'm doing both with my mare. She's at "Grandma's house" I hate living 20-25 minutes away, but I know she's being taken care of when I'm not there. The biggest plus is I don't have to pay. We split the cost for feed and hay and any other needs that our mares have. Personaly, I'm secure in knowing she is being well fed and cared for, but it's not the same as doing it myself.

    Im a BO so I run a small boarding facility and I love it except I do all the work. I love having my horses right outside but I prefer boarding because someone else does all the poop cleaning and feeding. I love the social aspect of a boarding facility too.

    I would have the best of both worlds if only I could find someone to feed and muck stalls on a regular basis! I have a great group of boarders, AND I get to say what goes. I must say that it is alot of work but I LOVE THE POWER... MUAHAHAHAHA.
