Well, I have to go 40 minutes by bus and then 40 minutes by feet to Snickers, that is, if there is nobody that day who could give me a lift, so I can't visit him every day, but sometimes it is really worth some sacrifice to provide the best care for a horse.
Nyx, there is always the possibility to make something like that yourself - over time, of course. :) I'd love to start this type of facility myself someday, so that there are more such places. 99% of boarding facilities in Latvia include obligatory stalling (you can't choose to leave your horse pasture boarded) and there are many setbacks regarding the mindset of the BOs' and other aspects for example, you can be frowned upon for not blanketing in winter or shoeing your horse, or for doing trail riding not dressage, or for believing your horse has real emotions and is not just a senseless, although beautiful beast, or for not feeding him commercial feeds and supplements only, etc., etc., etc.
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
