    If there is room to turn around, WHY NOT. He's 22, and he's telling you what feels comfortable and safe. I have an open stock step up and they all turn around....less chance for injury.

    The barn owner had no business calling the vet and ordering the test and expecting you to pay for it. In your position at 19 I probably would have felt obligated to pay it but if I was in that...
