My boyfriend is in school in Colorado and I'm back where we both grew up in NC. We've been talking about me moving up there and at the beginning of the next school year I plan on moving up there with him. I need to find a barn for my mare though since leaving her behind is not an option!
She's an easy keeper during the summer but during the winter she doesn't hold weight (we have pretty mild winters in NC and she's blanketed well, she gets grain & had access to hay 24/7). I'm open to boarding her outside BUT with her issues during the winter it's obviously not going to be my first choice. I've had her around 2 and a half years now and both winters have been the same as far as her weight is concerned.
I'm driving 45 minutes now to see her.
I'd really like to find an eventing barn but if that's not an option I'm ok with that.
It seems like all the barns I can find online are a bit more expensive than what I'm used to ($450 for stall board at my last barn, and $350 where she is right now in the pastures). I also have to find a job so if there's any barn that is looking I've got experience and miss working on a farm!
