Feathered feet ~ frankly I don't know how she can afford to keep horses in CA. After my divorce moving back there was something my whole family was prompting me to do (all my family is in San Diego) but with the cost of horse properties, not to mention how outrageous hay is out there, it wasn't an option for me. Out here, I filled both lofts in my enormous barn to the brim with very good quality hay - enough to last me through the whole year, even with all the big mouths eating it - for $1500 bucks. I could move to CA and be a non horse person, or stay in a part of the country I don't love but have built up a tolerance for, but be able to live the farm life I wanted. In the end an easy choice.
So you're from England originally? What part? My fiance is moving here from Kent. Once his visa clears. That has been an ordeal in itself. He stays here for three months, but then has to go back for two, until everything is in place. Been doing this for a year. I don't love that he had to go back in the middle of winter and leave hauling buckets of water to the barn in a foot of snow to me!!
I guess we've totally hijacked this thread, but since I created it an I don't mind, I suppose it's okay? *lol*
