It's really hard, but try to look at the place objectively.. don't say "yay it's great!" just because you can have your horses at home - although it's very tempting to do regardless ;)
One other thing I'd like to point out - and I know it seems silly, but it might wear on you after a while - is that when your horses are living at home with you, there's no escaping them. Vacations become harder because you have to find someone that you trust to care for the horses while you're gone. You can't just go away for the weekend - at least, it becomes harder - it takes planning, you can't just go on a whim. Remember horses do better when they're fed on a regular schedule; if you feed at 8 am (or whenever) then that feeding time shouldn't vary much.
Another thing to consider - how far is this place from the vet? This is a thing to consider for call-outs.. it adds up :) (especially when you have to do call-outs for little things like vaccinations if you're not comfortable giving the injections yourself)

I'm sorry for the novel, I just know that if I was looking at a place like this I would get starry-eyed and just focus on the positives and ignore the stuff I'm not very happy with just because I'm star-struck with the place, and I'd need someone to keep me back in reality with things like these :)

Best of luck!! Take lots of pictures!! I want to see!

Thank You JDI! You are pointing out stuff that i might overlook! I really appreciate that!

Since it is kinda like all horse country out here, there are quite a few vets around. The one vet that came out and looked at Vega was a good 30 min. away... if we move it will only be about 15. I wouldn't mind giving injections. I've given dogs injections before, but i would just like the vet to show me how it's done (if that's possible). We would have to find a farrier, but i like that we get to chose, and i would want a barefoot trimmer.


Tom and I really don't go on vacation. the only trip we took was a 2 day (was supposed to be over night but wild fires kept us there 1 extra day) in Atlantic City. Other than that, we really won't be going anywhere. And since we have the little ones (ferrets) we don't like leaving them alone anyways, just incase something would happen. And now that we have Chief, vacations are further out of the picture. (yes i know we could board him, but i worked at a boarding facility, and would rather not) And having Gem and Vega wouldn't be all that bad.

I want to know what time they are fed so we can keep that schedule for them. I already know they get fed around 5pm. I can also assure you that if the place is an all go, i'll have a million and one questions.
And I'd be able to leave work early to take care of them. ( i might ask to stay home with them for a week or so so i know they get adjusted well)

Again, i appreciate you snapping me back into reality JDI!

I'll defintely take pictures and post them! 3 more hours!

yeahh. I mean there could be someone closer, but i just haven't looked. Later today, i'll start looking just so we know the vets and the distances and everything.
Same thing with farriers.. have to find them and stuff.

LOL... I was thinking of this all weekend! I can't wait to hear the details! I'm not sure why I am so excited :roll: I guess I enjoy moving...the everything is new part anyways.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

When i was little, i never moved. The first time i had to pack up my things was when i went to college. I only brought clothes when i moved in with Tom... But this will be like my first real actual move, just because we'll have a house!

We're going there in 1 1/2 hours OMG i didn't realize it was so soon! (the little faint face in the chat would be perfect here)

OH i just can't wait to have our own kitchen, or own place to watch TV, our own bedroom, multiple bathrooms, and obviously gem and vega in the backyard!
