Yay! I'm so excited to be moving and while there are some people at my current barn who I'll miss, I'm overall very happy to be getting out of there! Ha ha. I won't have to stress about whether he's being given his supplements, if he has water, or if he's alright in general. I'm on partial board and am having to drive out every day to clean his stall. They won't even fill up the water buckets for you if you're on partial. So I'm always worrying when I can't get out there until late. He's always okay but I'm just tired of stressing.
The barn manager is the only thing that kept me there for so long, she's amazing. But two people were recently hired to live on property and do all the turning in and out and all the care on weekends are not so great. And they knew NOTHING about horses when they first came, not even how to out on a halter. What if my horse was injured or colicking or something? They wouldn't know the signs, or what to do! That just makes me SO nervous. I've also seen the man (don't know his name) jerk a horse around who I KNOW doesn't need to be handled that way. I used to work there, I know the troublemakers. Anyway.
We're moving Zu to a friend's private barn. The barn is awesome, the people are AMAZING, they have great pastures a dressage ring and a jump field. Zeus will be treated like on of their own horses and I won't have to worry about him so much. Seriously I'm stressed out all day until I can go see him at our current barn. I hate it. AND, on top of all that, the daughter shows, does dressage, has a great jump trainer, and uses the same dressage coach that I do. So I could probably tag along to shows. Yay!
Oh I've rambled on for long enough I think.
