Last Friday we had a feud argument disagreement with the gal who lives behind us and is co-owner of the barn we are keeping Nik in. Way to kick off the weekend, right? I wont go into details because I simply refuse to spend one minute more fretting over it causing me stress that makes me want to rip my hair out. However, the end result is that as soon as we have the money and time, we are out of that barn and will be building a lean-to for Nik closer to our house. Not the barn we were hoping to save up for and build, which sucks, but this will due. It'll have to. I really want Nik closer to the house anyway to combat his loneliness and boredom. He's taking to chewing wood (a common bad habit for horses to pick up out of boredom) which can be hazardous because of the potential for splinters in his mouth. Once we move him closer, he'll be able to see us and us him and it'll just be better and more convenient all around. I don't mind the trek across our 5 acres to get to him, but if I can have him right outside my door, all the better. :) It's just unfortunate and annoying to be blindsided by silly issues just when you think things are perfect and all honky-dory. We worked hard to get Nik over here. Now we'll have to work even harder to move him again. Though, as I said, it'll all be better in the long run.
Sometimes it pays to take the higher road and just keep chugging along. Or was it sometimes our wallets pay to take the higher road?
Anyway......plan B. Roll with the punches. Ditch barn, build lean-to, carry on and SMILE.
