You know you are a horse person when....
« on: October 21, 2018, 05:57:22 pm »

You sell a car so you can buy a saddle.

Yep.  I finally replaced my 20 year old tracker.  I bought from a private individual so no trade in.  Then I sold the 20 year old vehicle for just enough to get a Wintec Aussie for the 4 year old MFT who will undoubtedly grow and change much over the next few years.  But I still need to be able to ride him.

Oh Kysa, only you would think to sell a car to get a saddle.  But if I thought I needed that saddle very badly, I sure would sell something to get the saddle  also.  I hope the saddle was worth more than the car.

nope.  20 year old tracker...sold it or $600.  Buying Wintec Aussie for $800.  But it is worth it.  Solo will change sizes a dozen times in the next couple of years, so this saddle will change with him.

Yes, a curly foxtrotter.  He was 3.5 when I bought him mid summer.  In two weeks he will be 4.  A very sweet horse, and gaits to die for.  But certainly not his mature size and shape yet.

I have done this. I had a Ford SportTrac that I loved and had saved up for. But when I found out that my old horse Ronetta, was being mistreated in her new home and was for sale, I didn't hesitate to sell it to get her back. No regrets. Would do it again. She was worth more.

You take out a line of credit on your house to buy your grand daughter a 4 year old Fresian Mare.  But it's all good.  The horse closing is next Tuesday.

Samantha got her horse tonight.  Lots of tears.  Some of our barn family was there. It's all good.

Thank you Kysa.  I have changed browsers and I have not figured out how to do stuff.

My Daughter in law just sent me a beautiful Fall bouquet of flowers with a thank you note.
Totally unexpected.
