Alas, the time has come for our temporary evacuation home to get its stalls back. Our barn is leaving on the 1st.
The vast majority of the barn is moving to a very well appointed equestrian center with lush stalls and lots of amenities. A few outliers, including myself, cannot work that option for various reasons. For me, its the price of board. Their cheapest option was a 30% increase from previous. Haggling brought it down some, but it would still be a stretch and the lady seemed rather put out by my need of affordable boarding. I'd rather go to a place that welcomes my business rather than begrudges me for it.
Spirit's owner and I are honing in on our future boarding facility. I need to stay close to my trainer, and be centrally located to where I and my close friend live. We have a few options we're looking into. Too bad we only have 3 days left to figure it out... I've been loosing sleep over it! At least I can say that it will all be said and done by the weekend.
