If you just believe things will work out- they will.

So I've decided to move the horses into a new stable. It is going to cost a tiny bit more but the improvements are going to be huge. Tomorrow I will give notice and I can almost hear the retort I will get from the stable owners. Disbelief and dismay from one and an 'F-you attitude from the other. I can honestly say I don't care what they think, but I do care if they neglect my horses, so I know I'll have to be vigilant as well as tolerant. I have Glacier, the Rescue mare well placed in a retirement pasture with plenty of green grass and a few other horses to keep her company. When things get a little more settled for me I'll move her to where the show horses will be- which luckily, is right around the corner from them! And the barn is only a few miles from my house, so I'll be able to ride more and drive less. Its only a few miles from Lil Mama too, so she is also stoked about the move.
So please bear with me if I'm a little out of sorts for a few more weeks. I'll try to get back to my cheery ol self real soon.
And Many Thanks to all of you for your support! You have no idea how much it was appreciated.

And as for my 16 year old friend- keep the prayers coming. She is still in a coma, but there is brain activity and all her vitals look good. Another of her friends went to visit her, and was encouraged to speak to her as if she were awake. When she was spoken to, her eyes fluttered. They said" Blink if you hear me" and her eyes fluttered. They said " Blink if you want to give me all your money," and her eyes stayed still. Little hopeful things- yes. But sometimes if you believe things are going to work out, they do.

I had the Barn Owner from Hell, they can make your life miserable. Good luck on the move and happy trails ahead for you!

Whoops! Looks like I'm way behind and need to get caught up around here.
Sounds like the barn move is going to be a good one, although change can be very difficult to deal with at first.
But you'll get into a routine again and you'll probably be happier, especially with the less time driving thing, too.

So sorry about the 16 yr girl you mentioned. At least the folks dealing with her have a good sense of humor, and so does she. I'll say a little prayer for her tonight.

Excellent advice for more than just our horse lives ;) Things have a way of working out. I have my fingers crossed that the transition goes as smoothly as possible for you all!

Your young friend has youth on her side. Kids are incredibly resilient, and in time she may very well be perfectly fine! Prayers continue for her from this little corner of the world, too!

The peace of having your horses in a better home will out-weigh the increase in cost. You'll sleep better knowing they are in a better stable, and closer to home yet!
Take your time getting everything situated, don't let people get you down: when your gut tells you something needs to change, don't ignore it, do it and it will all fall into place for the better :)

Glad to hear your friend is doing better. I am always amazed at the prayer support my blogging friends give me :)

I just read your most recent blog. I will have to do some more reading and catch up about your little teenager friend in the coma. I would be extremely encouraged with those signs!! It even shows her sense of humor is still intact. Thank God!! I will remember your little friend in my prayers. I too believe in your statement of faith. :)

As far as the move, it sounds wonderful and like a definite win-win situation. Remember, you can never please all of the people, all of the time.

Que Sa Ra Sa Ra...whatever will be, will be. Good luck with that.
