Could be, but it's not like she's easy to understand or gives anyone a lot of information.
Besides, just who
stated they made tons of money? Because I haven't seen anyone
on this thread state their income amount per month, or say you MUST make a certain amount in order to have a horse. However, horses are
expensive in time, labor and especially
money, so you need to be able to pay for all of those things if you expect to keep one (or more) properly.
I'm not rich and I daresay the majority of people here are in the same boat as me; working a full time job and trying to do the best we can with what we earn. No, you don't need to make over $100,000 a year to have horses, but you'd better have a detailed plan, a good budget, and realize that the animals always
come first when the month is too long and the money's too short.
Unfortunately, I don't see the OP doing much more than flying by the seat of her pants and hoping
things will turn out okay, which concerns me for the horse in her care. If that makes me a mean, old, over critical poopie-head, then so be it. I've seen far too many starved, neglected horses owned by people who 'lurve' them, but can't afford to feed them or get them the proper vet and farrier care.
