Well, me, my trainer, and a lot of other girls have decided to move all of our horses. What we've done is rent a stable for $1200 a month and we're going to purchase our own hay and split the cost of the rent. It should be about $50 per horse to board. People who do extra work or maintenance around the stable will get discounts off their board. My trainer will be there monday-friday doing duties, and I'll be there on weekends.

The last week we've had a lot of trouble at our current stable. Horses getting injured/sick and the boarding owner not noticing because he doesn't bother to check the horses. He also doesn't clean up the corrals despite charging people an extra $100 per month to keep their horses in them. He also hasn't been maintaining the barbed wire fence and I've seen some loose areas. One horse got tangled up and was quite injured, but my trainer believes that the horse got injured from the boarding owner not removing the baler twine from the hay bales and the horse got tangled and struggled in the twine. Me and the trainer spent two hours cleaning up all the twine around the stable and wrote a note for the boarding owner about the dangers of the twine. The boarding owner ignored it and kept leaving twine out, so we're all very frustrated.
