    What are you going to do when the 40-odd acres behind you are developed?

    Can you buy some of that land now?

    I am reviving this thread, because I just made this! It is SO GOOD!!!

    I did not follow this recipe exactly; I used 2 bags of cranberries (24 oz) and one jar of Smuckers Sweet Orange Marmalade,...

    I hope that you are feeling a big better now. I find the worst time is the run-up to the actual deed. On the other hand I often tell myself "I'm FINE!" only to realize I am NOT fine -- it is never...

    I hate having to make this decision! So you have my sympathy, and empathy.

    The one thing I can add that I don't think anyone's mentioned is MARKETING. If you want to find 5 or 6 boarders, you'll have to spend time, if not money, to get the word out and get it out...

    Were they in the same price bracket as onthebit's farm?

    I ask, because generally you get what you pay for.

    OK, OP -- STOP!!!

    The question isn't whether a free horse can turn out well -- obviously it can!

    The question really should be can an arthritic, navicular horse turn out well.

    I just had to...

    That's a little extreme! I board retired horses and some of my owners live far away (one is in Wyoming). There are ways for the barns to keep owners in touch. In my own case I have a Facebook page...

    Hey neighbor! (Assuming you are in the area). I do not know that vet. I think Dr. Paul Schwartz, of the Center for Veterinary Care in Millbrook NY is one of the best surgeons (and veterinarians)...

    Exactly! I remember threads going back years about these horses; WW has TRIED to place them, including listing them on COTH, for YEARS now!

    I love this thread!

    I'm not fast on my feet when surprised by rude/grumpy people, so I would not be able to come up with a witty retort in time. I know this about myself, so my default response...

    I have had the good fortune to name two farms in my lifetime. The first was owned by my grandmother, and I was about 3 years old. I came up with "Black Walnut Tree Farm" because of the giant,...

    Yes, the Northeast is that much more expensive! Board for a place w/an indoor near me (100 miles north of NYC) is in the $1,000 - $2,000/month range, generally. If you SEARCH you might find one or...

    I also have never run out of grain, though I do plan things so that I only have *one* bucketful left before getting more grain in, so that the feed bin does not have very old grain at the bottom...

    Oh goodness, no snark intended!

    I find HOW one thinks of things can affect one's actions -- I commented only so that the arrangement was thought of more on business terms -- which I see it is.

    If you've ever seen a horse die in an agonizing way, and I have, you will never question the wisdom of "better a month too soon than a minute too late".

    In my experience, this is the hardest...

    I'd also think of the arrangement with your neighbor (if you agree on one) as "renting" rather than "borrowing".

    My sister in law made Susan Stamberg's cranberry relish one year, since it is so famous, but I have to say that it was pretty bad. So, you are warned!

    I dunno, Trub -- I think you are only thinking of *your* own personal situation, which is almost certainly not the OP's situation.
