Upside?

A friend of mine posted on Facebook that she was so excited about their new house. I know that they have two horses, so I joked that she should take Denali on as a boarder to bring up the property value. She's actually interested in having Nawlers live there so that when she takes one horse out, the other one will have company. It's only 24 miles from my house! (Still at least an hour in traffic, but can't complain.) They don't move in until the end of May which could be perfect. Still haven't discussed price or if she'd be able to give Denali her supplements. Lots of questions, especially about the temperament of her horses... Still a little excited. It's 4 acres.

Update: $300 a month for hay/grain/probiotics and a monthly parisite check. I'm so excited!!! I hope this works out because I could afford board AND vet bills at this rate. (By afford meaning we actually put something into savings....)

Ugh. A lot of news, not a lot of good news. Still, she's alive and pretty happy. That's ahead of where you were last fall.

Hope you can work something out about the board.

That seems like it could be a great solution. You could still visit, know she's in a good place and still work with her via the ground...

That sounds like it could be an ideal situation, so I would say yes it is an upside. Not good but better than any other options on the table. And to have something like that just fall into your lap is kind of a miracle.

Yay! I hope that works out! That would be so nice because then you know she's somewhere you can trust and afford.
