I will tell you my life lesson.
Back in the day when I first was around horse shows and show people there was a farm that I was just in aw of.
They had it all....won most classes....big truck and trailers.
I wanted to be like the Howards!!!!
Make a lot of money in horses.
I held this thought for years.
Then I got a colt and was showing him.
I never knew what to say to the Howards......so as we were leaning on the fence...I asked if they were going to the four day show next week end.
To my surprise they were not going.
They told me the strawberry crop would be in and it was make it or, not for the year.
They made their money farming....not from horses.......
The more I looked around.....the more I saw how little money there was in raising horses.
I always had to have a job to support the horses.
I am getting back into it now......for a tax write off......the other side of the game.
