I'm lucky, I didn't have to ask!! But my friend has wanted a horse so badly for so long that she made a slide show of 50 good reasons of owning a horse, how much everything would cost and how she would get a job to pay for it. LOL, when her dad saw it he was like "Sure you can have a horse... when your 18"

I won't lie, I was pretty spoiled. Within months of showing interest in riding, I got not only 1 but 3 ponies right from the get go. I was lucky enough to be able to have 1 lesson a week for the first couple years I started riding to. I wasd a spoiled child.

Yes... and you are a spoiled adult as well.... (we can think your man for that one!)

i told 'em i wanted on from the time i was a young tyke. dad grew up with them, i remember his last horse, vaguely. but of course, we lived too close to town and too far from the farm. so there was always some excuse. my mom tried pretty hard to convince him.

so i had to enlist, spend some time in the desert, and come home with enough extra cash as well as have met my best friend (we call each other brothers now), who convinced me i needed to finally get one. so i coffered up the money and bought my fella about 2 1/2 year ago now.

i was sortof given my horse haha but then had a hefty vet bill which I am still paying off
Its good though because I only have to pay for some of the food and like if he needs anything special and everything else is paid for (not by my parents but my friends) I dont actually know how I got into such a sweet deal :)

My dad wasn't the problem. He wanted horses too. I was always going to my friend's farm, playing with their horses, so their mom bought me a horse. We set up our backyard and I had her! All I had to do was prove that I loved horses. And I have, since I was three. :)

Well, I had been riding for a while and leasing some horses. Then, my mom brought up the idea to my dad and I at the same time and we all agreed. We did go a bit over the budget limit with our first horse but my dad liked him anyways! He is pretty good compared to most dads, sometimes he offers to help me with horse care (of course, we all know dads can be awful with horses!). I guess I'm pretty lucky.

Well I had always loved horses since 3rd grade, so when my dad found a horse for sale at a barn extremely close to our house we went to go look at him. I fell in love with Jack when he sniffed my toes. So my dad bought him.

My wonderful story! xD
