Yeah, now I'm definitely not about to leave Fortune up there. The first day we went up there, we were told he hadn't been used for 6 months but he went beautifully, as if he'd been worked the week before or something.... I know some horses are just like this but I'm not sure if I've had him long enough to know 100% what he's like in that respect.
My boss is being really helpful about this too, she used to be a lawyer herself and suggested that I bring the contracts to show her, and if she can find a way around the "conditions" then we'll go for it. We'll probably end up doing what is suggested above. Lucky for me my dad has a truck and my boss has a trailer she's willing to lend us.
Fortune is really level-headed the majority of the time, not at all spooky or anything like that, so the getting him loaded shouldn't be an issue, but again, I don't know him in that respect.
I am confused about one thing.... If I give 30 days notice, doesn't that mean he has to stay up there for the 30 days? Or does it not matter if we pay that same day?
