The costs are ridiculous here too. Thats why for now I cant own a horse. Its $600 just for a box stall. The prices keep going up and up every year too! There are about 500 horses at my barn and every stall is full. There is a very long waiting list to get in. Its pretty crazy. Then you have to add in training, farrier, supplements, etc, etc. if I ever want to own a horse again, Id either have to move into its box stall or not pay my rent. lol.yayy congrats! i miss riding a lot. i used to be really into it growing up... now i live in NYC and the cost is just ridiculous. :cry:
i'm looking forward to seeing pictures of Mimi!
Thankskristie, your guy is gorgeous and looks so healthy. props for rescuing him, it's such an awesome thing to do! looks like all your work and TLC paid off
your signature makes me giggle he could totally rock a hermes saddle!
Yes, I feel VERY fortunate that he is just a sweet natured boy *in general* He has had his moments though that were VERY trying......we have a very strong bond together and I think that is part of it, he just absolutely trusts me and that I will never put him in a situation where he needs to be scared and panic or be really aggressive and/or dangerous like horses definitely can be. He is a lot better than many adult horses I have had. I felt with him, he was a "clean slate" because he was a baby and NO ONE had ever worked with him whatsoever prior to me taking him. Therefore, I figured if his training went awry or he wound up with a screw loose, I could only blame myself because only I have done all of his training.You make it sound so easy! I will go out and buy a foal and it will be a little spitfire. My friend just got kicked in the ribs by her foal. Like all baby animals, they want to bite, kick up their heels and play.
