I hate seeing ads also saying have to sell because of college. Sometimes it is not possibly to give your horse attention while at college and I guess the person thinks that they aren't giving the horse as much attention as he/she deserves...but I find that most college kids (the ones who sold their horse before college) had enough spare time to at least go up twice a week to take care of the horse.
I honestly don't think Sonny will mind if I don't ride him every single week. I'd of course bring him up, lunge him around a bit, and give him some loves and grooming...
It's not like Sonny is on my property so I don't have to worry about getting up early and feeding him.
I was actually thinking night classes would be good, or on-line classes...that way if worse comes to worse I can go some classes on the weekends also.
Just trying to get ideas of how I can easily juggle things.
Yes Sonny is my first priority and if worse comes to worse, I'll drop out of college (yes I did say I'd drop out)....horses are my life and I've talked to one lady who does horse training, etc and she said that she'd rather have a person who has had hands on experience training horses and taking care of horses than someone who spent 4 years at a college learning how to do it. So more than likely I could always get a job with her...and then hopefully be able to afford another horse and buy one from her (she breeds Morgans :P ).
How many hours do you work, kickshaw? Right now I"m working 22.5 hours and though I am getting enough to support Sonny, I'm not sure if I could work that much go to college, and have time for Sonny.
There are girls that would definitely help exersize Sonny for me, but I'd really only want them to ride him once a week during a lesson so the trainer can make sure nothing bad happens to Sonny.
*mumbles*I don't want to go to college anyways
