Hunter, that is how my hubby feels. He has not had to take care of horses before but recently said that they only way we would have horses is if we could keep them on our own property so that we could interact with them every day. I of course, took that to mean, "start figuring out how we can get the property next door and build what we need for our horses"! LOL
Right now, I ride a friend's horse that lives 15 minutes from me in addition to the therapy horses, who are about 35 minutes away. I would dearly love one of my own again. The down side is that I don't really like always riding alone. I have always been at big show barns with all my buddies around me. Hubby hasn't ridden since he was a kid. He's a big guy at 6'7. I did find a lovely 18.5 hand percheron baby sitter type horse on craigslist.... All this time cooped up in the house is not good for my active mind LMAO.
