My barn owner loves chocolate cake....she is out of town right now but as soon as she returns, Ms. Jean is getting a chocolate cake with dipped strawberries.
She is ethical, honest and giving. She gladly shares her knowledge with me, my board hasn't gone up once since I put my horses there 3 years ago (praise Jesus!) and my horses are fed top notch feed. The hay is just bahaia but they get hay every day in the winter when the grass dries up. I have the use of 3 wash racks and one is hot, a covered arena and a larger arena, nice tack room.
There are great people out there running barns that care about people and their horses. I know there are plenty out here that are not the best but I am a lucky chick to have my horses boarded at a facility that is gated, owners live on site with security. Yes, Ms. Jean is getting chocolate cake when she gets home next week!
