He doesn't because of Gem's arthritis, we've kind of retired him as of right now.

I've been thinking about doing that, but i'd still go up there to see Gem.. maybe that will motivate him to move Gem as well

Riverwood is really close to where I used to board. The Paulinskil trail is where I used to ride... great trails... you will love them!

I have no idea. Maybe because it's costing them more to get grain/hay/shavings delivered?

Exactly. Like I said, the cost of grain alone has gone up $25 a month per horse for us. The cost of growing/harvesting the feed goes up with fuel prices, and the use of ethanol (from corn) has made the cost of corn skyrocket. Plus, everything that gets shipped in gets more expensive since that takes fuel. And for us, maintenance of the barn that uses fuel (lawn mowers, the tractor -we have 3 rings that get worked daily, etc). Plus, energy costs have JUMPED up. So if your barn uses lights and fans in the barn, has arena lights, has an office, bathroom, etc. Even the cost of lumber has gone up (fences, jumps, fix anything made of wood...). You name it, it's gone up. And for us the summertime is always more expensive since every stall has to have a fan and we use a ton more water (water the arenas and people hose off their horses after they ride) Our water bill is over $600 a month in the summer! Believe me, the horse business (if don't correctly and morally) is not a place to get rich....

Well i understand the increase in everything, but to raise the board twice in one year and NOT give us a 30 days notice i think is bull.

There are no arena lights (except in the indoor but now that's it warm outside, everyone's outside) There are NO fans, the lights are off except when it's dark. The office is in one of their houses, there is a bathroom but they're kinda grimy.

Like i said, if the place was worth $500/month we'd stay there, but it isn't in my eyes.

Tom and i are going to check out the barn today, hopefully.

I'll let everyone know how we like it
