OMG WHATEVER YOU DO don't TRUST CRAIGSLIST!!! I did that last summer and ended up in a place that had nice pix on craigslist, but tons of barbed wire, broken fencing and everything...plus the witch cut down hard on my horse's hay, didn't answer phone calls, would call me and DEMAND I come out, claimed she didn't have a checking account, so was cash only (which of course, can't be tracked!!!!)....oh and then raised prices mid month.
Yeah...make sure you have a good friend help you, or at least INTERVIEW some other boarders. I got really unlucky, don't make the same mistake I did by trusting too much.
