Sorry, but comments about my youth affecting my judgement is uncalled for. I am very responsible, and seeing as no one on here knows me, I would rather not be clumped into the group of silly little girls. I haven't been a child since I was five. Ask my mother.
I think what is trying to be said here is, you never know when you may have to move your horse, I don't own a trailer either and was not planning on my friend getting cancer or ever sending my horse anywhere, wasn't in the books, but realistically life happens, Fires, emergencies, any sort of thing could require you to move your horse, Waiting until the very last minute can cause possible undue stress on you AND your horse....Would you drive your car w/o insurance or wait until the day before a major trip to cover it? Would
You wait until you are sick to by health insurance or dead to by life insurance?
I think the comments about your age is because you are definitely portraying your frame of mind as such, When I was a teenager, I waited until I HAD to do something to do it, As an adult I have become proactive and do things before they are needed, I have become proactive. That is a tell tell sign of age, and you cannot blame the other posters for pointing it out. I hope for you that you will never have the emergency that will require your horse to be moved, but still it's better to have been prepared.
