    Also, they keep saying that I can go over to the place where I take lessons anytime I want.. they say that it is better just to use their horses..!!!!
    It is making me soo mad, cause its my money and I do what I want with it.. there is nothing else to spend it on :P

    Please help!
    I was thinking of having a big yard sale next week, getting some people to donate old stuff... and I am going to make jewellery, some rope halters, and some fancy browbands, and I might paint some pictures to sell..

    But, even after all those ideas, she says I need the money before I think of looking at horses... and I need at least a weeks time to decide if I want the horse after I've looked at it... so I need to go tommorow or the next day.. but no... I need the money.. I even told my mom I would pay for the cost of gas... but still nothing.. now they get really mad when I mentain it!!!!!! I agree that I need the money.. but if I go look at the horse.. I might not even like it.. and if I do like it.. We could work something out with the owners... like maybe convince them that bringing the horse to the auction wouldnt give them any profits.. and maybe they could keep the horse for a couple more weeks.. until I have the money

    But, I only need a regular job to keep the money coming!
    This is really frustrating.. cause even if I have enough for the 1st few months... I can't have a yard sale every weekend..

    But, I was also thinking I could make paintings, halters, jewellery and browbands.. and maybe sell them on the internet.. or bring the browbands and halters to our tack store and sell them to themm.. or maybe I could sell paintings and jewelley at craft sales.. but still.. at every craft sale, i'd make... what... $40 :S

    Please help, thanks again :)

    PS:: Your horse is gorgeous!!! I LOVE the dapples on the black :) sooo cool! And unique!

    Yea I would do all those things, also I would call the horses owner and let them know that your very interested and see if they can put the sale off for a week or two. But I really think you could do better, I don't want you to do a ton of work and go out there and find out she's not what you want... but then again before I got my boy I told myself I wasn't going to buy him! Lol! Then I went out and feel in love! Lol! So there you go!

    I'm not to sure about the money thing though... I have a full time job but then again i'm 19... maybe you could walk dogs? Clean people's house's? Wash car's or at least clean the inside of them out, when I was you age that's what I did pretty much.

    I e-mailed the person and said if they could put off the sale for a couple of weeks.. before you wrote this.. lol... weird.

    Even if she is not what I am looking for.. I will have money for another horse once I come across the perfect one.. maybe I will find a free one and have tons of money.. or maybe they really need to get rid of this one and they will sell for anything.. I dunnoo..

    Thanks for the ideas :) I think I'll make a poster saying the jobs I can do... and post it around on bulletin boards :)

    Definitely not worth the asking price, for all the reasons stated before me..... also I have my doubts she is 15.2............... that guy would have to be a giant

    I think it might just be the picture... maybe they were standing on slanted ground.. but maybe she is shorter.. I dunno.

    Why don't you see if you can get a job cleaning stalls/exercising horses at the place you take lessons?

    Honestly, I'd hold off. Save all your money until you have say... $3000 in the bank (I know that's a lot) but then you can look for your dream horse - not just a horse that you haven't looked at yet... you know?

    I'd save a bit longer. :]

    Best of luck!

    I think that is a great idea :)
    At the place I take lessons... they don't have stalls... and they don't need horses exercised cause they only have a few..
    But, there is another horse ranch up the road.. that has stalls and tons of horses.

    I would love to save up money... but this could be THE horse... I would just like to go see her... I will know if she is THE one... if not.. then its all good.. I will save.. :)

    But, hopefully my mom will let me just go and SEE the horse.. if I don't go see her ever, then I will keep feeling sad if I don't find the perfect horse.. but if I go... and don't like her... I will know I wasnt missing out on anything

    Thanks again,
    I appreciate the help

    Also, if I made paintings, jewellery, browbands and halters.. etc.. do you think you'd buy??
    Just wondering.. cause if noone would want them.. I shouldnt make them.

    Maybe I could make a site on the internet where I sell my stuff... But, I don't have a credit card... just a bank card.. so I can't join paypal... can I?

    And we live in a pretty small town... so there arent many horse people around to buy horse stuff

    Do you have any examples of your stuff?? If you don't have pay pal then I would have to send you the money in the mail, plus I think (not sure) that you have to be over 18, but im really not sure. Maybe let your mom know you want to sell stuff online and let her know pay pal is super safe and fast! I hate sending money in the mail... always afraid it will get lost or I will get scamed. Lol! I'm guessing you are far from me. But this horses pics were sent to me asking if I could take her for free, sadly I can't... here is her add ---> Price Reduced! Big Chestnut Mare she's listed for $350 but they are willing to give her away to a good home.

    I don't have photos on the computer... but I could get some on sometime soon...

    I would love to have a paypal... wouldnt be safe sending in mail..
    My mom doesnt like typing in her credit card # cause she is afraid someone could hack into the computer..

    Hopefully she will agree if I look into it more.. I would probably get more business off the entire world.. than this small town... lol

    She is an adorable girl.. but I am not an advanced horseperson.. more of an intermediate. And, I live too far away :(

    If I lived closer and was experienced I would love her.. she looks like a friendly horse :)

    There is somebody out there that is right for her, and hopefully she finds that person :)

    Also, I don't have browband examples, cause I am just getting started.. but once I get some I will :)
