That is a tough call but honestly I would go with barn 1. I have had too many experiences with boarding to know how important good care is to me. Too many instances of not being fed, not being checked or contacted about injuries, etc. And when they're dealing with my main man, well, things best be done right. But that's my personal feelings. I'll bite the bullet and put on a few extra layers if it means I am confident in the care my horse is receiving.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
