Thanks all for your comments on my last post. I love the people here in bloggerland:)
Switching gears entirely....
I need to start getting ready to welcome Abby home! I am not sure on an exact date yet but I know that this summer will pass in the blink of an eye and I'd really love to have everything set and settled before she gets here. The best laid plans of mice and men, right? Right.
Anyways, one of the biggest decisions I have to make is whether I am going to try to find a place to board or if I am finally going to take the big leap and find a place to lease. Right now I am leaning towards finding a few acres to lease for a year which will give me enough time that I can have Abby foaled out and her 2011 foal weaned before having to even think about moving.
That is not to say that I have a specific (empty) barn in mind... I am going to have to pull up my big girl panties and go pound the pavement and knock on doors! It is funny how now that I am looking there seems to be nothing but empty fields and barns ripe for the picking... if only it were that easy.... people have the strangest ideas about privacy and liability! My goodness:)
Anyways, my BIG plan (I always have one of those tucked away in the back burner of my mind) is to find a place, pay one year lease up front, rub a little elbow grease in to it, buy a trailer full of great hay, find someone who wants to board another in foal broodmare and then settle in for the long Canadian winter. I would just love to have another baby around come Spring so that my foal has someone to play with and Abby isnt alone either.
If only I could snap my fingers and have it all settled!
I think tomorrow I'll take a drive and start mapping out some possibilities. And, I'll be sure to bring my camera along for the ride;)
