Can yall believe that I have blogged two days in a row??? Maybe I'm turning over a new leaf?? We will see!
The Second Event
The barn where I have kept Felix for the last year closed. The lady decided to get out of horses at least for now. I think she will find her another place to rent and make a go at it again after awhile. The worst part about it was that she chose to tell everyone on Facebook!! Really?? What kind of way it that to do business? She gave us 30 days to find another place.
I had to find a place for Felix. Mind you, I don't just stick my precious Felix just anywhere. I contacted one of my old friends, JennyO, who used to train me on my old horse many moons ago. At her house she has a five stall barn built on to her separate garage. She has pastures and a riding arena. She only owns two horses. JennyO takes GREAT care of her horses and now she babys Felix too. Felix LOVES his Auntie JennyO!! This arrangement has potential to help both of us. I get great care for Felix and good riding conditions without a lot of congestion ( no crowds in the arena). Plus I get to save some money. JennyO gets additional income along with some help around the place. She is having knee surgery at the end of the school year and I will also help then.
I had problems getting Felix to settle enough to ride him.New place and he decided to act up. He was being naughty so I got the trainer from our old barn to stop by and ride him. She looked at Felix and said the classic "He does not strike me as a naughty boy but a nice sweet boy." Ofcourse Felix was looking at her with his angel eyes. :)
