OK, I am having a little trouble looking for a new barn.
Here are some that i am thinking about contacting:
Boarding - I like alot but I dont think they have a riding ring...
Seven Pines Stables - may be a bit expensive for me for a mare and foal

Sonya ~ 5 yr old Appaloosa/Welsh mare

The first one, Ballyduff looks like a great place for your filly to grow up, lots of pastures, you can take her trail riding, etc. and the price is amazing compared to Southern Cal where I am.

The 2nd one looks OK, lots going on that could be fun for you.

Sounds as if the same stuff is going on again. You need to move the mare and baby NOW, do not delay... If the BO will kick the mare, then they will kick the baby. What do your parents say about the mare being kicked? I just do not understand how your parents are allowing this to happen, when it shows how much you love this mare and foal. Why will they not help you to move your horses?
I just don't get it.

And that is one DANG good looking filly. If you ever get sick of her, there's a stall here in my barn ^^

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Personally, I would go with the first decent one that came along, and continue looking on the side, for something else to come up. You don't have to sign a 2 year contract or anything, but getting them the hell out of there is better than waiting for the perfect place. Find better than the one you have, move, and if needed, keep looking while they're at the NEW place. Good luck.

Wow... I cannot imagine being in your predicament... Im so sorry. I dont know about in Canada, but here in Texas, consultation fees with attorneys are free most of the time. I would find out if they have ANY legal rights to your foal, and Im assuming they dont, then get Sonya and Rumor out of there as fast as possible... even if its not to the place you want to board forever, anything sounds better than what you and Sonya are having to endure right now. Good Luck.

Ok. I am going to call the first farm this week and probably book an appointment to check the place out. It seems really nice, not too big, and inexpensive. Looks like they have 3 foals planned for this year so she will have some other foals to play with too!
And I can always move them again if i need something that they don't have, right?

I will keep you guys posted!
I also took pics of Rumour today and will post them tomorow after school.

She is getting big. She has a nice, big, round butt. She is really fast too. hoping she is a good jumper so I can hopefully show her in hunter or show jumping if she is fast enough.

Good luck.... Don't want to be part of the broken record, but definitely get them out of their asap.... If he will kick her when a boarder is their, no telling what he'll do if when he's alone... I have recently dealt with an A-whole barn owner, so I definitely feel for you, and I also know what it feels like to be trapped at a barn (no matter what reason) so hope you find the perfect place after all this crap...

Just want to warn you you may have a lot of drama come moving day!!

When we move our horse, our guy said we didn't pay him for the month about 5 mos before which was hoopty crap because he calls us two days before its even due to get it!! Not to mention we left some money with his grand daughter (also my cousin although he is on her other side) and she said we didn't!!

now she has a history of stealing stuff from others too (in hind sight, maybe we shouldn't have left it with her ) but it costs us twice that month.... And we had to pay him an extra month's board for the one we 'missed' I can't even imagine what he would do if he waited a whole freaking month for it.... We were out of town when all this drama went down so when he got mad and told us he would turn her out of the pasture if we didn't get there and take her right now thought I was gonna have a heart attack.... well my aunt saved the day and got her...

But anyway, sorry I wanted to vent!!!

Good luck!!! you may be in for some of that drama especially if he thinks he has any rights to the foal....

Especially, like Qtswede, kinda mentioned they might have their eyes on that cute little baby of yours once they saw the quality!! I would be paying board for her, He might try and convince you he was letting you board free cause 'you had an agreement thay you could board free if he could have the baby' some people think up the craziest things!! also, did you say some other horses were turned out with him, or was that someone else?
