July 1st is fast approaching and I am getting more and more excited about moving to the new barn! I still am very sad to be leaving my barn because, as I illustrated with my woops-I-ran-out-of-gas post, my BO is awesome, and I will really miss a few of the boarders. However, I am very hopeful that the great turnout will be what Lucy is missing.
I've already taken a bunch of stuff home from the barn to make the actual move easier, like all of Lucy's blankets and her extra saddle pads that I was keeping up in the viewing room. Her blankets were all washed (my washing machine hates me now) and folded/put in storage in my basement. I won't need to look at them until the fall! I stacked everything else neatly in Rubbermaid boxes and when we move the horses, I'll go through and evaluate what I actually need to have with me at the barn, vs what I can store at home.
I need to order hay for the new barn and I'll be doing that in the next two weeks. I don't want to do it too early incase the hay magically grows legs and "walks away" but of course it needs to be there for the 1st of the month.
I filled out the entry form for the hunter pace, and "booked" the truck with Kenny, so we are definitely going! EEK! Claire and I are going on a trail ride this afternoon to test the waters, so-to-speak. Today I am finally ordering a brake controller for his truck because the route we'll be taking to get to the hunter pace has a few large hills and the brake controller will make them much easier to navigate.
