    Looking for new places to board. A horse at the barn stepped on a staple gun set of staples which has me paranoid. I'm excited and nervous to move him and meet new people, and new horses. Hopefully I'll be out before Winter starts. Ollie looks to be losing weight again and looks agitated. Don't get me wrong, I don't want a place that's 5 star gold plated stalls and feed served on silver spoons, I want to just be able to go out and ride and my horse not be injured, and not to have a crap-tonne of barn drama. Is that too much to ask? Gahh

    I am now looking for a new place to board. I'd love to be able to go out once and my horse not have any new injuries. One horse at the barn stepped on a set of staple gun staples. I'm paranoid of that now too. Oliver looks to be losing weight again, and looks really annoyed and agitated in the paddock. I'm excited but nervous to go to a new stable and meeting new horses and people. I basically just groomed because I only got a half hour at the barn today.

    I'm feeling just exasperated. You make one mistake and people pick yah apart, eh? Stalls have been built in the barn where I board but you don't even know how much I want to keep my boy at home with a few other horses and some boarders. But of course mom isn't having any of that. I've been looking around for barns in my area, but discovering naught. Weirdly Olivers been getting really skittish about his hind end. Like when I ask him to move I shake my finger at his hindquarters and he'll move it. But now even when I go near his butt to brush it, he jumps to the side and is tripping over himself to yield. I don't understand whats happening, but whatever it is, I am not pleased.

    WooHoo! Mission accomplished! I found a place where I can keep my horse till winter rolls around, and then the land owner will speak with a friend of hers about letting me board there permanently! I'm so excited, Oliver is moving in in about a week.

    I don't know if I've made the right decision anymore. I feel like I've let down Michelle (the barn owner) and I feel horrible. I've been bawling since she told me goodbye and I don't know what to do anymore. Her and her DH were awesome to me and I feel lie the lowest of the low to just say "I'm Leaving." I know I have to look out for my horse and everything and I hate him being beat up but I feel like suck an a$$ right now..

    Don't beat yourself up too much, you have to do what's right for Oliver and yourself.
    You where having problems, you took note and made the choice to move, do you know how many times I have done that with my Oliver boy?! When I first got him I had him at 4 barns...two where with a trainer who moved and twice I took him to a "safe"barn to keep out of the drama with two trainers. I finally made the big decision to move him and myself back to one of my original trainers and we have been there a solid year and four months with no plans anytime in the future to move him.

    We feel guilty case we care, that's makes us good people we are good people cause we do what is right by our horses from our guy feelings...you can look back, say what you have done differently, you can change your mind and not move but does that solve your problem and make your horse happy?

    You need to do what is best for you and you only (you being Oliver too)
    Maybe write down pros and cons?
