|It has shifted just a bit.|
|It looks even worse on this side!|
The hole, however, is not cool. Again, it could be from one of the other horses because they seemed to be quite interested in it yesterday. One of them could have grabbed it and yanked, causing the tear. I don't see how she could have done it in the pasture just from rolling, but perhaps.
These are all possible scenarios, so I'll withhold judgement until I'm able to gather more data. Either way, though, I'm a bit disappointed. Somehow I'll have to fix that hole...
In barn hunting news, I've chatted with a couple places and they all suck. Ok, maybe it's not that bad... No, it is! The problem is, I've done this SO MANY times before, that I pretty much know of every barn within a 40 mile radius of my house and they've all previously been crossed off my list for one reason or another. Either they're too far to drive, they're out of my price range, they don't have an arena, they're a shit hole, or I've already boarded there and left for one reason or another...
There's a place 5 minutes up the road that I would LOVE to board at, but the fences are falling down and the barn is dirty, dark, and falling apart. It used to be really nice, but it hasn't been taken care of. It's also right on a busy road and I've been warned to stay away. I looked at another place today that was really nice, but it would be a 30 minute drive. I'd do it, but 30 minutes is the maximum distance for me.
I'm so desperate that I put a wanted ad on Craigslist hoping to draw out the private barns that might not advertise. That's how you know it's bad!
