I couldn't agree more here, seriously this thread and other's you have make me cringe. One horse put down, another scheduled to be put down and another you still currently have.....for now. What in your budget do you have left? Not trying to be snarky but seriously. As stated in another thread your emergency fund is GONE, you're racking up HUGE bills on a credit card for vet bills. You have way to many problems to list. ALSO, you're still trying to show in between all of this.
Where is your head?
Yes, for most people we would joke, knowing they WOULDN'T go buy the horse. You though I have a feeling no matter what anyone tells you, you'll go buy it. Even though you reached your limit a long time ago. You haven't even put your horse down yet and you already want another one? That's another problem. If I had to put a horse down I'd be distraught, I wouldn't be able to purchase another one.
Get your finances in order, do what you need to do to be financially and mentally ready for another horse if need be. Do not go put another horse in the same situation. Get a savings account going again, get that cushion back. Work on sorting out other issues FIRST.
After reading through other threads and giving advice on several I have a feeling you're not going to listen to any advice given here. Focus on ONE horse and make him the best he can be, give him the best care. Don't try to stretch the dollars you don't have because you're being selfish and want another horse. You have been detailed and made everything clear to us even saying you think you have an impulsive spending problem. There are things besides your horses you need to think about and address. Give your horses the life they should have.
Sorry that this was so harsh, but it's so true...
