    See no my mom isnt going to put the money toward a car. I don't know. Dude has kept me out of so much trouble and peer pressure. But if I don't have him then I don't know. I will eventually need a car though instead of a scooter. But thanks for the idea. If I was going to spend $2500, I would want it to be on a car.
    So its either I can keep my horse or sell him and use the money and but a car. I don't even know how much dude would sell for...ill have to start a thread about that.

    What about getting another job with more hours? Save for the next year until you graduate and then you can buy a car and work fulltime and maybe get a roommate and then half lease the horse and it will all work out.

    Also you may find selling him difficult, not sure what the market is like where you are but many places people are giving horses away unless they have particular talents, etc.

    Hope it does work out for you, but keeping yourself out of trouble is more important for the next year to me than getting car, Just my opinion of course good luck

    Im trying to find a new job but finding a job is also hard right now. I just really need to get a car soon as its hard for me to get anywhere. Im going to try and just lease him out but I may end up having to sell him.

    Life is all about choices.... OK, now that being said I want you to concider whether or not "getting along with family" is something you can work on. I know...from experience...that living on your own is STOOPID crazy expensive. So are horses! Can you burry the hatchet with your family and pitch in more and complain less to show your family...like it or not (you'll have to eat the dirt on this one) that you are a team player and your are trying to mature and be responcible and maybe, just maybe they (parents) will be more likely to help out??? I did this when I thought I knew everything and moved out 2 days after graduation. I had to eat some serious crow and crawl back home until I could gather the money to stand on my own 2 feet. My parents were happy to see me lose my attitude ( I still think I was right ) and work for something substancial. I just let the dumb stuff at home not matter and kept plowing forward.
    2 jobs and a car that was made the same year I was born! It sucked living at home and I had to abide by the house rules..but I really found out that it was no different than working for someone...you have to obey rules and work too. *shrugs* Good Luck and I hope I hae helped a bit.

    Thanks so much. I know for me I should have a car right now but living each day wondering about Dude would break my heart. I could always get another horse but it would never be the same. Dude has always kept me out of trouble. When my friends would go out and drink, id say nah and go ride. I had Dude through the hardest time in my life when my dad left me and if it wasnt fdor having him , I probably wouldnt be here today.

    So I put Dude online for sale or lease a few days ago and I got the greatest offer, now I just have to convince my mom. This 53-year-old guy wants to lease him and would pay shoes and board at this nice facility and he would trail ride him on the weekends with his daughters or wife and then during the week he's all mine to ride. Sound Fair?? So I would only have the annual vet bill unless it was something he caused. I really am liking the sound of it but he still has to come out and meet dude.

    Please try to keep dude in your life, hope it works out with this guy. You are going to face a tough time if you have no horse, I know you know that, so do what you can to keep him.

    Keep us updated

    UPDATE: Ok so im going to call the guy tomorrow and discuss a lease with him and a time for him to come try Dude out. It sounds like a great opportunity for me at this time and I would still get to ride 2+ times a week. Has anyone ever leased a horse or leased out their horse? I need advice on what type of agreement to write up. Thanks in advance and I hope this works out.
