LOL! Thanks! Yeah, I'm on here all day and on Craigslist too! I get bored in the office...

Anyway, I really like Cornerstone, although nobody lives on site. For their board price, I want it all!! Although, they're not out of the running yet. The Lehigh Equestrian Team rides there and the owner seems to have a clue. The other place in Quakertown is a little farther and they have no instruction or real ring/jumps, etc. And, Hazelton is far, actually right near where my fiance grew up. Oh, his parents would LOVE it if we were up there all the time ;)

This is the place I'm checking out this weekend... Julie Veneziale at Three's A Charm Farm, Milford Township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania The only negative is that they don't have an indoor, but I can deal with it. Spring is almost here!

I know a BO who kept a horse in a stall for two weeks, without cleaning, just feeding the horse, because the girl decided to giver her 30 days notice. The fact that she'll probably loose the farm is enough for me to leave.

I've been in alot of crappy situations, because you don't know whats going on with a barn untill you're there, right in the middle of it.
Are you aware you come across as a very negative person?

OP - Please DO talk to the BO. You can't say anything based on rumors but you can ask specific questions. Maybe she would knock something off your board if you fed Mon and Wed? You never know until you try.

It was made quite clear that I would not be "allowed" to help with feedings if I expected anything in return. On top of it, I'm already spending an extra $60 a month on shavings because she uses straw and I have concerns about his colicing issues and being on straw. I was told that I'm not entitled to any break on board for that either, even though I'm not using their bedding. I have no problem paying and supplying that myself, but she also complains constantly because everyone else will thing that the rest of the horses should be on shavings too. However, this was something that I cleared with her before bringing my new horse home.

I'm not passing judgements on any rumors, only what I am experiencing first hand. While I have concerns about the entire place, my issues and decisions are based on what affects me and my horse. The bottom line is that I am not comfortable right now with the situation that my horse is in. When we have tried talking to the BO about any concerns in the past, it was always blown off.

On a side note, sillybunny is offering her opinion and experiences. I don't think that's being a negative person in any way. I always value her input on different situations! Just because someone offers an opinion, that doesn't mean that everyone else will do as they say.

Haha. Coming for you that's funny.

I am aware however, I come off as realistic. It sounds like she wont change, she seems like she dosent care. She can't care that much if she lets ponies run around loose, and isnt worried that the horses arent getting fed, or might be colicing...

I personally wouldnt work for her period. She sounds like she'll walk all over you.

Kelly,

PM me if you find any good barns. If I get a chance I may go down to bucks saddlery and ask them. I think greystone is suposed to be nice, and travelda. But I also herd travelda has a small turnout area. (But they have some good trainers.)

Visted Three's A Charm this morning. LOVE IT!! The trainer/owner is fantastic, met another boarder, and got the full tour. We'll be moving as soon as I tell my current BO and determine a date. I certainly won't have to worry about any of these problems repeating themselves. So excited and happy!
