What to do?

Hey everyone

I haven't posted on here for a long time. I have been super busy with stuff, but I now have a rather important question.
So, I have known for a while now that my dad has wanted to get rid of our 2 horses because he is going to be travelling a lot over the next couple months and then he'll be away most of next winter. Our neighbor usually feeds the horses while my dad's away but we can't ask her to do that for the whole winter. So my sister found a place near where her boyfriend lives that will board the horses for cheap. It is her quarter horse and my pony. The problem is that this place is like, 2 hours from where I live. I would not be able to go out and visit Snapple very often and that would upset me.
Anyway, I'm thinking about asking the neighbor that usually feeds our horses while my dad is gone if maybe I could keep Snapple there for atleast a little while until I find somewhere else to take her. I also know someone else who lives nearby, her and her husband have a lot of horses and I have met her and helped feed her horses and stuff, and I was wondering if it would be a good idea or not to ask her if I could keep Snapple there for a little bit.. I could help with their horses or something in return for boarding Snapple. Sorry this is so long! Any suggestions?

As long as your father says it is okay to ask. ask. I have my own horse property and I have in the past had people keep there horse here in trade for chores. Make sure you are willing to help. I love having a day off now and than.

It can't hurt to ask, the worst they can say is no.
