    not really a big deal, but i have to vent.

    So i'm putting my horse on stall board for july and august because of the heat and more so the flies. I wanted to be there for his first night of turn out. He will be moving to a new field with new horses. I was going to suggest turning him out with one other horse during the day for a few hours so he gets familiar with his new field (he ran through his last field after I walked him along the fence line). That way if something happens, it wont be at the end of the day when everyone is trying to leave.

    It's come to my attention that he as already moved to his new stall and new field. They do take good care of him, but I feel like they should have told me that they were going to make the change early. Like many of us, I'm a control freak and even though they look him over for cuts everyday, I wanted to be able to do it myself this weekend when he changed fields. I'm not one of those owners who doesnt need to be informed of my horse. Like I said, I'm a control freak and want to know everything.

    I did not get out to see him yesterday because I had to pick out new carpet for one of my back bedrooms in my house and work on drywall that was just hung over my fireplace in the living room.

    I know it's not a big deal in the sceme of things, but it bothers me. I do plan on talking to the owner when I see her next and she's feeling better. (she's on meds for her poison ivy)

    Had you told her you planned on being there when he was turned out with the new horses? If not I wouldn't be too terribly upset, since she didn't know you wanted to be there. If you trust her with your horse and she takes good care of them, I wouldn't be really worried. I'm sure if something were to have happened soon after the introduction she would've taken care of it. Hope it all turns out okay for you and your horse :)

    I'm not too worried about it. I'm seeing him tonight. She told me about the change in a text message when I told her that I was coming out to ride tonight and that I would feed him when I'm done. I don't know if she would have told me if I did not text her. I'm just a little...annoyed. I did tell her that I wanted to be there and she knows that I like to know when something changes with me horse, ie feed, or if he gets a cut on his leg.

    Again I know it isn't a big deal. I'll just have to remind her that I like to know this stuff. She does have a barn full of boarders who get annoyed if she calls when something happens to her horse. I'm not mad, just annoyed.

    Thanks for listening!

    Yeah I'm sure it could be hard to keep up with which boarders like to know every little thing and which don't. I'm kinda like you and would like to know everything but that's just the control freak in me so I try not to worry too much if I trust the people he's with.
