Cruiser was lame again recently.
BUT, I went out today & he had dramatically improved. I'm thinking a stone bruise, nothing big. *fingers crossed*
I have been having such a hard time with the adoption agency. They are SO strict. They have denied two nice barns already - one because of fencing, the other because there wasn't 2 acres of land per horse. I told my current barn owner that the adoption agency didn't approve her place. I said that I would have to board somewhere else and take Cruiser with me. I thought about even retiring Cruiser for a bit. The owner became pretty upset because the kids and her love Cruiser so much. She has offered to re-do the entire fencing.
I couldn't believe it. I was so flattered and grateful. If she does and the agency approves, I'll be able to stay at my original barn. I don't want to switch barns, but I also don't want to have my horses at different barns. Man I hope the agency approves. On top of this, I think I have found someone I know that can haul Lanie to my barn. I'm not sure, I'll have to see how much she charges, but I'll feel more comfortable knowing who the person is driving. I believe you FM, it just makes me so nervous hauling a young racehorse several hours. Plus the girl that would haul needs extra cash so I'd feel better about helping her out.
I'm going to go see a new barn tomorrow just in case the adoption agency doesn't approve the idea of re-fencing my current barn. It sounds like a nice place but it's more expensive and even they may not have enough land.
All in all it's quite stressful, but it will work out somehow.
