    If it were me, I'd ask the barn owner why the repairs aren't being done despite her promises? I maintain an acreage and a house and it seems things break down faster than they can be attended to. Help is always greatly appreciated, especially when one can't hold both ends of a board at the same time. Can you devote a day and the two of you put in a concentrated effort to get things right? It's amazing how much can get done in a day. It seems a job that would take an hour with one person doesn't take half the time with 2, but more like 1/4 of the time.

    So, it's been a couple of weeks since we moved and doing quite great, actually. My gelding is dealing with being stabled overnight well, he had a very smooth transition into the new herd and seems to be enjoying life - which is what I do, too, as he is much closer to me now and I can visit more often. Not regretting the choice I made at all!

    Move. I'm older (55yo) and wiser now and I look at all of my activities, like recent old fruit tree pruning as: "Is it cheaper to do it myself, or go to the ER."
    Those repairs smell of somebody's Vet bill. When I boarded my horses back in 1985, the farmer gave me the spot that used to be the family's dump. I spent 14 years picking up nails, glass, styrofoam, pieces of old fencing, etc. Even though I Still find such stuff periodically in the backyard of my 100yo farm, I try to fix any possible horse dangerous situations. I replaced the old cattle w/barbed wire fencing in 2008, and I just have the one dangerous repair left, which is where the 2nd owner cemeted metal to support a wooden manger, now rotted out and burned. I have those cement cinder blocks with holes on top of the 3 left, so nobody gets hurt, and it took me one whole hour of sawing to get the first one off. I have the blades ready and will be removing the other 3 this summer. I even bought cement repair to put on top of those places.
    If I was a BO with this problem and your horse got hurt you could sue me for the Vet bill. You don't want to be around to see any train wrecks.
    Now...How will you be shipping my dragon?

    Ponies, I just got it off somewhere on the internet, by googling "baby dragon" or something alike, so I hold no ownership of the picture. :) I guess it was in DeviantArt. But it sure is extremely cute!
