I haven't gone to see barn 2 yet. This weekend. Maybe.
A few weeks ago I called a barn that is 20 miles from my house. It doesn't have an indoor arena, but has great recommendations. It is $500.00 a month (which happens when you get closer to the city.) I know they have a waiting list, so I figured I'd try to get on it. Today she called me back to tell me that the barn has a long wait list for mares. Figures. Then she asked me about Denali. I had told her a little bit in my e-mail about our lack of riding ability and her other problems. Apparently she has a few stalls at her house with a large pasture and she's looking for a mare to keep her sister's mare company. It's not finished yet, butI'm going to go look at it in a week or so. It's not exactly what I want, and would prefer a barn environment where I can see other people (I like being social) but it might be a good back up plan if barn 2 doesn't work out. Not sure of a price yet. I hate barn hunting. Denali's issues make finding a barn difficult. (Large turn out, grass to eat so she works her neck, someone who can handle her moments of stupidity.)
