    I have been around the block in the boarding scene in Fort Collins with my guy. As others have said, it's a matter of what you and your horse can compromise on. I came from the east coast and it was...

    I have done it too, but only when I had a friend who knew the horse in question (she was his exercise rider). You know that horse, so you make the call on whether it was a good decision or not.

    This is awful, but I think this kind of attitude has become really prevalent in the "rescue business." People who want to stand on their "moral high ground" and hoard animals for no useful purpose...
