I'd say Ranch C. If you want him wored everyday you can and if you don'ttell them no. Ranch C would be best for me because you would have to pay charges for trimming (him going and leaving)

pick the stable that feeds the hay you prefer if the pens are safe and all the horses look fit. I would pic a or b.
Option C sounds nice, but, it offers training, clinics etc, which means lots of 'traffic' , people who could mess with the horse.
I don't understand the boarding owners that don't consider filling troughs as part of a normal routine on the same level as feeding. I would verify that horse has its water filled daily.

Stevenson, Aires is used to being messed with. He is the most visible horse on the property he's on now due to his loud coloring and the fact that his stall is near the front of the property (and the BO refuses to move him). I've had little kids petting him and messing with him, the BO's son and grandkids play around his stall all the time because he's the least likely to freak (he's even been hit by water balloons). Heck. I've even had my best friend catch someone trying to feed him coffee before. I'm not too worried about people messing with him at ranch C because most of their other clients (for clinics and such) will be men and Aires doesn't like most men.

As for feeding what I want...I'd prefer him on grass or an alfalfa/grass mix. Right now he's on straight alfalfa.

Quick Question: I am about to purchase a horse in the same manner. I will be putting down half the amount and she is letting me pay payments for 8 months or if it takes me a little longer that's fine, she isn't worried about that too much. I like to be done as quickly as possible so I've never purchased something that way before. Was it extremely hard paying a horse payment and board? That's what I'll have to do since I prefer not to move him until he's paid for. If you had to do it again would you do it? In my case he is definitely worth it but I'm a little nervous.
Thanks

Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls- they give us hope!

I probably wouldn't do it again, to be honest. Aires was very much worth it, but budgeting almost $400 a month just for one expense was tough (board plus $100 towards paying him off). I wasn't allowed to move Aires until he was paid off, so I had no choice.

Just an update for anyone who cares...I'm going to have to go with Ranch A. Ranch C called me back a couple of days ago and tossed out the number $275. That's what I'm paying now and the reason I am moving him is because I can't afford it anymore. When I told them that, they stayed firm. So, I called Ranch A and she'll have a stall ready for me on the first.

Now just to figure out how to get him there...

Do you have to give 30-days notice? You seemed to have good relationships where you are-does anybody have a trailer that would move him for you?

Sorry, didn't see this reply.

I gave my 30 days notice at the beginning of November.

As for a trailer, the only person I know at the barn that has a trailer he could fit in and I could tow with my Trailblazer is the trainer and she doesn't loan out her trailer, even to friends. All the other trailers are either goosenecks or tiny two-horse straight-loads that he won't fit in.

However, off a whim I messaged one of my parents' neighbors that I'm friends with on Facebook to see if she had a trailer I could use. They are huge into horses and her husband runs a ranch for her parents. She has an aluminum two-horse slant she's going to let me borrow.

I'm moving Aires on Wednesday.

Glad you found a trailer to use. Hope the move goes smoothly.
