    Question Need Help raising money

    Ok so I have been offered Dana for $5000 which is great except one thing. I don't have $5000. I only work two-four days a week and its on a minimal wage. I offered a pay back thing but he wants his money and he wants it now. So I need to raise $5000. I may be able to sell enough stuff on ebay to raise $1000 but after that I'm not sure. And as for getting another job, I live in a town of three thousand and I was lucky to get the one I have now and the chances of getting another is slim.
    So does anyone have any ideas?

    The purchase price of a horse is usually the smallest fee. If you can't afford the horse, how will you afford the upkeep? We spend $10,000 a year per horse, not inclluding fly spray, blankets, emergency vet care, lessons, etc.

    If there's a few other stables in your area you could offer to help when your not at your other jobs? Maybe help with hay? Population of 3k sounds a little tough tho

    Yeah I know. The only other stables in the area are racing stables and I have been offered a job at one of them but I refused it on the grounds of a) there is a lot about racing that I agree with b) that stable has a history with the RSPCA (animal protection) and c) the stable manager is, not kidding, got out of prision six months ago on rape charges. Serious. Oh and the owner is Dana's cousin. The others are either too far away and I don't have my licence, yet.

    I absolutely agree with this!!!! If you can not afford the horse how in the world are you going to be able to afford everything else?!
