    Talking Omigosh guys! The best thing happened today!

    So, as some of you know, I keep Lacey at my little old man neighbor's house. He lets me keep her there for free in exchange for feeding his llamas during the winter and filling his wild bird feeders when he and his wife go to Arizona every couple of months to spend time in their house there.
    It's a really great deal and I am incredibly thankful to them for letting me keep her on their property.
    There have been a few issues that made me wish I could be "in charge" of "my" field all the time. But this deal I have is really unprecedentedly wonderful so I figured that as long as Lacey is doing ok, I'll let the "ehhhh" stuff slide.

    Then, this summer, Lacey and I aren't going off to camp so she'll be in this field all summer. It's really not shady, at all, which concerned me for her eyes and since the upper field is already eaten down, I could really see that I was going to be forking over some major cash for hay this summer.

    They do have another field (5 acres, though only about 3 are really accessible currently because blackberry bushes have grown over gates and such) but they rent that one out and I don't have the funds to really pay a lot AND I didn't want to seem piggy.

    The horses that had been in the rented field haven't been there since around January so I was wondering if they were coming back. I hadn't heard anything though so I just assumed that they were coming back, just maybe in a month or two.

    WELL, the little old man came to me today and said "I've been meaning to ask you. The horses in that other field have moved out permanently and we aren't going to be renting it anymore. Would you like to move your horse over there? We'll keep the same method of "payment" if you do..."



    So this other field is flatter, shadier, less storage right now but I can create a better "tack room", AND it hasn't been grazed since January so the grass is great!
    Also, it's 5 acres divided into 1 acres and 1.5 acre parcels so I'll be able to really use rotation grazing and keep the pastures healthy (once I find some of those gates! Lol)!
    It'll take a little work to get through the blackberry bushes but they aren't horrendous yet so if I work a little at a time, I should be able to make tracks.

    I'm just so excited! This pasture is going to be great for Lacey. He said to me "Just let me know when you want to move over there, I'll give you the key to the gate."
    Um, today?? Just kidding. But I wish! Yay!
