Ugh. More hate mail today.
My fiancee and I were talking today and looking at finances.
If I dont get a horse, we will be able to save (literally, put in our savings account) about $400 - $500 a month. In 2 years that's $9,600 - $12,000. Plus we've got about $6,500 in our savings. That is $16,100 - $18,500. We own our home now, we've owned it for about 9 months. It's a 2 br 2 ba Condo with a small fenced in yard, but the house is under 900 square feet. We are feeling cramped more and more every day, and really want to buy our next house. This next house will be the house we will raise our children in, and we will be living there for 20+ years, so it has to be the right one. Our main requirement is at least 2 acres for horses.
$16,100 - $18,500 plus the equity in our current home is enough for a down payment on our next house. (And we could spend a little more on our wedding and honeymoon than we planned!)
Okay, so I'm rambling. A lot. But all I got was more hate mail, so I took down the ad. I havent found anything close to what I want in months, so I think I am going to stop the horse seach for now. I think I am going to wait until after we buy our next house with land so I can have my horse at home. It may not be until 2 years from now, but that is okay with me. I am working towards a big goal, and I know I will get my horse when the time is right.
I guess everything does happen for a reason.
