We made it!


The worst is over!  Woohoo!

Still some odds and ends to move of course, but horses are in and settled and the vast majority of the stuff is moved.

Horses were soooooo happy.   Turning them out in those big green paddocks and watching them run around kinda made the whole thing worthwhile all in itself.   When we came back hours later to bring them in for dinner, they weren't having anything to do with it.  Too funny.

Barn is, of course, still in a state of barely-controlled chaos.  But horses are rehomed and happy.  And now at least I know who all the new horses are (yeah for the cheat-sheet landlord's daughter wrote me! :) and most of the stuff is at the new barn.  Somewhere.  hahaha

HUGE THANKS to Steph and Hailey for all your help today.   (hmmmm I wanted to make that significantly bigger but that seems to be the biggest it goes... :)  They stuck it out for 13 HOURS of moving, packing and unpacking.   We got nine horses relocated, mucked the barn (Hailey gets exclusive credit for that one), turned my guys out, got water troughs set up for them, brought in and fed the new guys, carted multiple bags of shavings and bales of hay, hauled truckload after truckload of stuff into the "dumping" area (to be unpacked over the next few days), and even managed to get the trailer parked and unhitched and the barn swept before we left.   Without them, this would've taken me a week.   I have the best students in the world :)

And now I have to go to sleep so I can start unpacking AND managing the new barn first thing tomorrow.  Wish me luck :)
