I wish I could find a place like that near me. All the best on the move, I think you made right decision to move. Happy trails!

Thank you. I think we were really lucky to find this place and that it had room for us. It's mostly a training facility and not much boarders. And the price isn't bad at all especially considering the hay prices and what they offer. This area is extremely high for boarding costs, not as bad as many places but considering you can go across the river 15 miles and the same amenities are half the cost. So I say we are very lucky to have found such a nice place and one that is hiring weekend help so my friend will be working off all the board and I will be working off just enough to make the price back to what I have been paying.

And now it's windy and cold and just icky out. Perfect for hauling horses lol.

Have you spoken to your barn manager about the quality of the hay?

There were a lot of things that came up in the last week that I just flat out was not going to put up with so my friend and I moved our horses yesterday. I think it was the best decision. Her horse has lost about 200 lbs in the last few weeks and the new barn is going to make sure he puts it back on. I woke up this morning relieved knowing my horse is now being properly cared for.

Thank you. I really like the barn. We even got messages this morning telling us how our horses were adjusting and how they were doing. Nice to know that they really care about them.
