i couldnt imagine letting a bunch of people use my barn without making them pay. What about electric, water, realestate taxes? Thats a great deal! I dont like the part about boarding were you dont know whos gunna be at the barn and if they're gunna mess with your horse or your stuff. Its bad to put yourself in the situation where you can afford anything else. what if something happens and you have to move or are kicked out?? You will probably overlook the facilities a little and just go somewere based on a cheep price.

We can't afford it right now because of a family situation (won't go into details). But it's fairly well organized among the boarders. We each have an assigned day to feed the horses and we all pitch in to maintain the facility. It all evens out because we do a lot of work around the farm. Plus we supply everything ourselves and take care of the BO's three horses. Yes, it's a lot of work, but it we have to make due until our situation clears up.
