Just a little update,
I looked around at barns today. I was unimpressed by most of them. I did, however, find a really nice barn just a mile down the road, trail acess right out the back gait. It's small, have everything I need, and is drama free. Did I mention small? It's very cute, and very lovely. I'm taking my dad to go see it today, and once we get everything settled (papers signed, board payed, corral picked out...) I'm going to give my notice and leave. My dad will still be taking care of everything, and Cricket is going to get what she needs. I'm very happy, and incredibly excited. Oh, and the view of the mountains behind us is breathtaking.
Thanks everyone for the comments, opinions, and help. It is much appreciated, you have no idea.
