Thank you everyone for your thoughts! It has really helped me out with this decision. Unfortunately, I have not yet to moved her. But after riding her the other day, I am determined to move her. I realize the current conditions she lives in is not only unhealthy for her body, but also unhealthy for her mind. I called the other barn and went over there to talk to the owners about moving my horse to their farm. One of the owners is actually an equine vet tech and works with a very respected vet in this area. She is going to have her vet come out and test and treat my mare for possible bacterial infections. They also said she will be watched like a hawk the first few weeks. They are also willing to help me out in any way I need, whether it's checking on my mare at midnight or assisting with her training. I'm so excited and feel at so much peace knowing I'm taking my horse to such a caring and professional farm. So Feb 1 is the day my mare will be going to her new home.
