I'm so happy. Oh so happy. Bursting with happiness.
This move is going to benefit us in so many ways. I wish I had known about this barn sooner.
Amber will be:
*In more competent hands
*Have more of a routine
*Smaller turn out groups
*In during the day in the summer, in at night in the winter
*Working in an actual dressage arena
*A HAPPY MARE!
I also don't believe Andrea has been giving her the supplements. I checked the box and there should have been more used over 2 weeks with 6 oz a day. I dated when the tub was opened. *Le sigh*
So far, my checklist is going like this:
-Wash her bell boots.
-Wash her brushes.
-Wash her girth sock.
-Clean anything else that looks dirty in my tack box.
-Clean halter fleece.
-Buy her a fresh salt lick for her stall.
-Clean her loose ring bit and order the eggbutt I want to try.
-Clean HER, bathe if weather permits.
-Clip the "highlights" (muzzle, feathers, legs, bridle path).
-Fix the mane.
It has occurred to me that a lot of the barns in Wayne county have too much drama and chaos. I'm just ready to escape it. Allegedly, Avalon didn't have it but clearly they did. And it's not like I'm trying to start any with my leave - obviously all of my problems were things that I have the right to be concerned about. Yes, I've ranted on my blog, but nobody I know in person reads it, so it's not like it makes a hill of beans. Things I've said in real life were nothing but fact, and I'm just trying to move along quietly without drama. This so-and-so said this and so-and-so said that mess is getting old! All of this getting butt hurt over stupid stuff is getting old as well. I hear Halcyon has already asked someone to leave for starting crap, which I know this person, and it wouldn't be a surprise. So that gives me confidence they really uphold that rule instead of, like many barns, picking favorites and making excuses for all the butt hurt boarders and students whining and bitching about unimportant stuff.
I found a nice used blanket with one well done patch on ebay for $2. Amber's size, so I'm getting it for her. Nice deal as far as I'm concerned.
