I am so excited!!!! Long story short: I leased a very nice AQHA mare for 4h last year. I stopped leasing her after July, and by November(ish) she was sent up north to be leased at another persons barn. I was pretty bummed to hear that, and have been searching for a horse every since. Well,just 2 weeks ago, we got the news that the mare was back home as the lease didn't work out.
Her owner offered her to me again, but this time, I'd need to board her at a different place (her owner needs to work with her younger horses). I checked with the BO at the barn I work at, but that didn't work as the board was way too much. Last week, I emailed a neighbor asking if we could work something out. Just today, she finally emailed back and said it would work! I am so excited and relieved to have a horse to use again! Either this week or next I'm going to go the barn and clean up the stall (it's been empty for years...) and then talk to my neighbor about how everything's going to work.
Kudos if you read the whole thing! *passes out cookies*
