I got a surprise when I got to the barn last night. Seven new boarders arrived in one day! It seems they got kicked out of their old barn because the owner is selling the place. Needless to say, the barn was in a state of chaos. People were all over the place moving their stuff in and rearranging this and that.
Gwen was a nervous wreck, of course. All that activity and all the new horses in the barn really put her on edge. She loves meeting new horses and making friends but this was a little much for her. Coriander just ignored everybody and looked around for more hay. Thank goodness for my steady Eddie.
I'm not super keen on this development. I stay at this barn because 1) it's super close to my apartment so I can visit twice a day if I need to and 2) 80% of the time I'm at the barn I have the place to myself. I'm not good with change, and I'm not looking forward to having a bunch of people around when I'm trying to work in a calm, quiet manner with my nervous Nellie mare. I guess I'll have to see how this goes.
