Yippeee! I posted on here that my barn went up from $800 to $950 and then we had a hay surcharge of $60, all within 3 months time. I felt like I had no alternative to paying it, but with some sleuthing, found an incredible barn that would be just perfect for myself, my horse and my friend and her horse. We want to move together. I also looked at a barn that was a "dump." Had 55 horses on a property that should have no more than 30. Ruled that one out rather fast!
It will be hard to leave my "old" barn as I was there for 10 years but I can't afford over $1,000. New barn is pristine with wonderful trails and considerably less costly.
