So I asked a trimmer friend of mine if she knew of any barns that I could take Denali. She sent me the contact info for a barn that is 29 miles from my house, and offers all day turn out (10-12 hours) on pastures. The woman is looking for someone to work for her and pays $1.00 per horse turn in and turn out. Totally easy for me to do. The price is already reasonable ($425.00 per month) so if I can get it below $400 a month that would be great. The pictures are great and it sounds too good to be true. I have never heard of this place and wonder if the owner is crazy. I called her today and it sounds great. It's not a training or lesson barn, which is good since a lot of barns around here only want boarders who are going to spend more money on lessons. I'm going to see it this weekend. We'll see. She said I can bring my own trainer in, but they can not give other lessons out of the barn (aka only boarders.) I liked everything she said. I know they only give so much hay, and if your horse needs more you pay extra. Nothing works out for us, so I'm not getting my hopes up too much.
