I take care of my next door neighbors horses when they go on vacation, and they take care of mine when we go somewhere.

Take care of her horses when she goes on vacation, say thank you every time, and be done with it.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

She doesn't vacation, that's the issue! I wish we could just do a straight trade, but we can't! If she goes away I'd love to return the favour.
Also, I think it's great that you have that arrangment with your neighbours. I hope to have that some day too.

That's what I was going to say! Whenever I go away my friend says "bring me something pretty"

I just wanted to update and let everyone know that Whiskey moved in to his new 50 acre pasture today and was not upset in the least when I removed his halter and walked away!
I'm thinking an apple tree will be a nice gift.
