What would you do?
Okay so I board at an awesome eventing barn, but my mare can't go any bigger than 2'6...I DO NOT want to sell, but my grandma offered at one point to let me keep her at her place and she'
D build me an arena. Her place is about 20-30 mins away, and the place we board at now is 8-10. I could probably get another horse, with more jumping ability if I went there, but I wouldn't have cross country jumps, etc. Or I could breed my mare later on, in high school and get a nice jumper out of her, and keep them at my grandma's. Which should I do? (BTW if I bred I would ALWAYS keep both, my mare has GREAT traits, and is that rare Rocky MTN color, I don't just want to "breed my pretty girl pony and get a cute wittle baby ponieeeeee!!!!") If I bred at what point would be best for me to breed? What year in HS? Thanks everyone! Also, is there enough money in Modeling, etc for me to sustain another horse (to board)? And how much does it cost to keep a horse "at home"? Sorry for all the questions....thanks guys!!
