    I'm just glad Acey is still being cared for and that the BO is acting professional about it. I've read so many horror stories that I was really worried!

    Good- I am glad that things are working out for you! Because of the horror stories that I've heard, I always tell people to make sure they have the ability to move their horse somewhere safe TOMORROW in case things go wrong with the barn breakup if there's any uncertainty. With certain exceptions... for example, my old barn owner was perfectly ok with me leaving for college and taking my horse with me :P Folks just need to hope for the best and prepare for the worst! Just keep going on like normal, and move when the time comes.

    Yesterday evening, we drove up to the barn to clean out the tack room. OMG, I cannot believe how much stuff we have accumulated over the past 2 years owning ONE horse. Kitten (my 11 y.o. Daughter) and I had to get all our stuff out to the truck in the rain, ice and mud. It took just over two hours. We had a few issues finding some of our stuff. Our spare blanket had disappeared, as had our scoop. The BO had to search to find them both. I was also upset to discover we had 6 SmartPaks left in our bin. You see, I had left just enough to get us thru Acey's last day at the, it proved to me that they had not been giving her the supplements every night. More proof that it was time to move.

    We also managed to get our truck stuck in the mud when we were backing out. :(. Luckily, the BO's boyfriend was there and pulled us out with a chain and his truck.

    The roads out to our old barn are dirt...after the ICEMAGEDDON in DFW, they have become pure mud. I was really worried about getting our horse and trailer out this morning!

    The BO was sad to see us leave, but she gave the whole family hugs and told me that we're always welcome back. We promised to keep in touch.

    Luckily, we managed to get Acey and the trailer out with only a few scary moments. Once we hit pavement, it was smooth sailing.

    Acey is all tucked in to her new stall at our trainer's barn. She seemed content and settled in right away.

    I'm happy to say that our move ended up being relatively drama free. Thank you everyone for all your advice and support over the past 30 days!
