This is it!
Well...I did it! I committed to a new barn for the boys and gave notice at my old barn. I have to say that I feel lucky to have found the place. Judy, Sarah's mother, actually is the one who found it. I think she was pretty sure that I would like it. It reminds me a lot of CEC. There is turnout every single day. As a matter of fact they are out 27/7 during the summer months. In the winter they have nice cozy 12X12 stalls and both have no mud runs off the back of the stalls. There are automatic waterers and big watering tubs in the pastures. There is an indoor arena with cedar footing and an outdoor sand arena. There's even indoor plumbing for the horses people. The price is right. More than I have been paying, but not more than I can handle. The only drawback is it is still a 30 minute drive from my house. I can deal with that though as long as the horses are happy and healthy. They feed eastern Oregon hay and the same grain the boys are already on. The best part is our trainer can come out to the barn and work with us. I want to thank strivingforsavvy for sending me a list of barns to check out. I'll send you an email and let you know how things went there. I took some pictures I'll share with you. I'll save the arenas and pastures for another time.
