Old BO update ;-p
Well it happened that when we stopped at a Tack Shop to return a bareback pad that I didn't like, the BO was there also. We were talking for a while, but the questions she asked about the new barn were kinda funny...not like she really cared, but I answered. Here are some of the questions, answers, and my thoughts (which I didn't say lol)
Q: So, your horse is in the obstical course at the new stables, aren't you afraid that he'd get hurt?
A: No, he hasn't gotten hurt yet, and there's nothing that really is that dangerous.
Q: But he's close to the rode...you're not afraid anymore of having your horse to the road? You didn't want to put him in my pasture that was close to the rode.
A: It's an Electric fence, I doubt he'll run through it
Thought: The road wasn't the reason why I didn't want him in there, I didn't want him in there due to the apple tree (which she said gets lots of apples on), and the water bucket was reallly high so it would be hard for me to clean it.
Q: Does he have a stall for the winter?
A: Nope, he doesn't have a stall in the winter. He's on pasture board and will never be in a stall unless I put him in there for tacking up or whatnot.
Thought: Does every horse need a stall? And besides I didn't have one at her place...well technically I did, but the stall I got leaked water (it flooded when the snow started to melt), and she blocked the door with bales of hay
Q: Aren't you going to miss having an indoor arena
A: Maybe a little, but I enjoy riding outside better...and when it's really cold out I don't like to ride
Thought: Oh yeah, I totally miss having myself covered in dust and sweat after I finish a ride...or having to take 2 hours before I ride to water down the arena.
My mom agreed that she was trying to make me regret my decision to move lol.....but little does the BO know, I am not regretting ONE part of it...not one. The boarders are great...the BO is fantastic...the horses are wicked nice (no bullies)....and everyone there has a passion for horses and actually knows what they are doing.
Hmmmm...maybe I could write a letter to everyone at the stables...just like mail it to one of the girls and then tell them to pass it on to everyone there saying how much a love the new place, etc. Maybe that will stop the BO from "attempting" to make me regret moving.
What do you all think? Should I? Or does that seem rude and immature?
