Holy new boarders, Batman!

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.



  1. Holy crap! Seven new boarders?! I bet it was chaos. I completely understand about having the place to yourself. Up until recently, I had the back of the barn to myself; I could spread my stuff out, not be bothered by anyone. Then two new horses arrived. :-( However, maybe this new situation would be good for Gwen. Help to desensitize her?

  2. It's crazy town at the barn now. When I got there last night to bring my horses in THEY WERE ALL THERE!!!! My anti-neighborly tendencies are rising...

    The only good bit is that my horses won't be bored with all that activity to watch and it certainly will desensitize them to a show atmosphere.

    I'm trying to think positive, Wolfie! I really am.

  3. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
