So this is kinda an updated 'what would you do' thread stemming from this one- http://www.horseforum.com/horse-talk/move-barns-stay-put-question-152260/page2/#post1878182
So it's been decided I'm taking my new horse and my donk and moving to the place I was to move back to before. But now that I will just be taking those two an not the three I will be paying $300/mo and my gelding will be in the smaller field and have a stall. (So we will not be sectioning off anything as stated in the pervious thread an my horse will be in the smaller field away from the wire and we will have a stall. Yay!)
But, bad news is thAt I will be leaving my mare behind. The Ex said he would like to keep her and me finding her a new home isn't going well at all so I don't have much choice. It hurts and sickens me to have to do it but I have no other choice.
Anyway, I was to move my gelding and the donk in mid-march as I just gave my months notice on Feb 13. Well, the Ex has agreed to still do morning feeding and fill the water trough everyday (we have to bucket water everyday as I have a small trough becuase the donk can't reach the big one and only one water heater so they have to drink out of the small one) Well, no surprise he lies about filling it to the point where I obviously don't trust he's doing it. And I've caught him in the lie. So, now my horses are suffering and that's NOT what I want. They never go without water but he will let the water get very low to the bottom of the trough.
I've been thinking about asking my current Bo if I can move at the end of the month. I'm sure he'd understand and wouldn't mind but what would you do? I'm sick of depending on the Ex and especially for another month....it's going to be tough.
I'm also worried about leaving my mare behind with him but there's not much I can do there I guess. :/
