Wow! I missed a lot! Lol
Gorgeous Gypsy Vanners! I have always wanted to ride one!!
For the first question: I rode a dappled grey POA gelding named Chief when I was really, really young. (He was my aunt's.) Once he passed, my dad bought me and my step sister a chestnut tobiano "surprise" breed mare named Pawnee. Then, my mom and I moved, and I had to leave Pawnee behind. My mom got me a HUGE 4 year old Quarter Horse mare named Sissy. I consider her my first horse, because she was technically "mine." I still have her
She's now the "kid" horse, though. I got another. PICT0061.JPG
^^ My first time riding Sissy.
Now for the second question: I am very fortunate and my parents pay for all of my horsey things. I do help out a lot around the house, babysit my siblings, etc. When I get birthday money or money for doing something, I always give it to my mom. I am also very spoiled, because I am my dad's only kid and my grandparents only grandkid.
I did have a job at one point and was paying for everything, but my mom needed more help around the house. Oh, well. I get to be lazy now!
