Ch ch ch ch changes...

I hate change! Especially when it comes to my horses and their living situations. We got an email last week that informed us of a barn meeting to be held last night. Of course there was a lot of speculation about what news the meeting would bring. Turns out our full-care barn is going self-care.
Arrrggghhh! We have 6 weeks to find a new home for the boys if we decide that self-care isn't going to work for us.

I have loved being at this barn. It is well kept and the arenas are great. I like the other boarders. I love the trainer. As a matter of fact the only thing I didn't like was the drive out there. Sometimes I tended not to go because I didn't have time for the drive out, the grooming, the ride, the grooming, and the drive back. I never had to worry about my horses. There was always someone around to watch out for them.

So...I am looking at my options. Did I tell you that I hate change?


  1. Hope those who decide to relocate find suitable stables. It can be so difficult to find a safe and friendly barn with the desired amenities at the right price.

  2. I had a hard time moving even when I knew the situation I was in wasn't good! I guess it was one of those things where I knew the problems where I was, but what if the problems elsewhere were worse (so pessimistic, I know). So I hear ya on the change thing. I hope you're able to find a good solution. Boarding can be so difficult!

  3. I hate change, too. Full care is a real luxury, that's for sure. It would be very hard to give up, but I've never had it, so never got used to it. ;) Maybe that's a good thing.

  4. Boy it is so hard to find a place you like and trust with the care of your horses. They are out there though and I am sure you will find another.
