Well, excuse me.
I'm trying to get her to look at other options, maybe she hasn't thought about emergency care and now she can put a plan together in case something did happen. Really, who wants to see a suffering horse (not that hers are). I have seen dying horses where the owner can't afford the euth/disposal. The horses have to die a slow/painful/whatver death, not quick/humane.
Selling isn't the only option (I know it's hard to part with them, and I would hate to see her do that), but she could half lease and split vet/farrier/dentist with someone, so it's not as much.
And my age is not important. I can tell you that I pay for EVERYTHING for my 3 horses. I also work and go to school full time so I can pay for them. And make sure I have enough put away for rainy days.
I don't see why you're attacking me, for saying one thing - I said MAYBE she shouldn't have horses - not, she shouldn't. I don't know her situation... maybe she is just having a rough time with this economy.
