    Arrow Boarding Question!

    Hey guys! While I explained in one of my recent posts of me and my boy moving...again! I'll explain again for some of you that haven't read it.

    In July, I moved my boy to a quiet little barn that was beautiful and fun. Sadly, we had to move again. We needed to leave because we couldn't get our english lessons, my boy was out in a pasture without any buddies and was quite sad, and the barn was hit with stragles! EEK! Thanks goodness we made it out 100% healthy and left on a good note. The owners of the barn said we are welcome to come back anytime, so that was good. The barn we moved to is very pretty and nice. The barn that me and my boy were at first had a ton of people leave to come to this barn (yes we all moved, big problem with the trainer) so now my boy is with all of his old buddies. For 350 a month this barn provides:
    -Stall and turnout
    -4 grooming spots with electrical outlet in each
    -4 washracks
    -polished wooden lockers for all the boarders
    -outdoor arena
    -soon to be indoor arena
    -300 acres of trails
    -a lounge with a tv, ktchen, shower, bathroom, etc.
    -includes worming, shots, etc
    *everything there is spotless!
    Hopefully everything will work out here! *fingers crossed*
    Now to my question -

    Since my horse was the most recent horse to move to this barn he got the last stall, all the way down on the end, and diagonal to him are goats, to the left of him are dogs, and to the right are the horses. His best bud is two stalls down so they are pretty close. Do you think its kinda, oh I don't know how to explain this, but I feel kinda bad for my boy because he is on the end, next to the dogs and woods. He can poke his head out and see all the other horses and to the other end but...
    Do you think I'm over exaggerating and that he is fine? He is eating his food and everything and I'll keep an eye out. I don't really want to cause trouble and ask if he can swap stalls but I just feel bad . Thanks for your comments!

    I think he's fine lol. I bet he will like looking outside to the woods and he will be plenty happy seeing his buddies even if he's not next to them. They can still talk all they want to eachother!

    Horses don't really care as long as they aren't moved every week. Most like routines. We have a lot of horses at the end stalls where I board and they do just fine. I'd think they'd like it more since they have more to look at.
