Soooo, today I get a letter in the mail from my bank. A few days ago I applied for a credit card for emergencies [read, vet bills] and thinking that because I'm flat broke at the moment there was no way in hell I would get much, I applied for the maximum available to a person on my income.

Well. WOW. Turns out that's actually a lot of money, and it kind of scares me. I'm not great with finances, hence the credit card in the first place because I have some exxy vet bills coming up with the x-rays and everything and no cash to pay for them. I nearly died checking my balance today...

...apparently my limit is $4000??? I was hoping for half that and thinking I probably wouldn't get it. Holy crap, bank, since when is it a good idea to be freely willing to lend FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS to a person who can't afford to move out because they can't even afford to pay rent? I live on just under $1300/month and here, rent STARTS at $1500/month. Forget horses. Forget food, bills, etc.

I'm still not sure that I'm not dreaming... And it's taking a LOT of self-control not to go out and buy a car, which I do kind of need, but it's not, y'know, an emergency, sooo...

Moving out....exciting but scary. Every time I get money I buy a gun or something horse related....when I get on my own it will be hard cutting back. I don't even know how to pay taxes or bills or any of that! Haha.

Finally!!! I'm getting my license this week!!!! And horse lessons start next week!!! Hope this week goes by fast!

Anyone have any support here. All the older riders on here are chastising me about an attack that happened on my TB that i had no control over, yet they say i could have done something about. What happened is, my TB Romeo went out to pasture in the front big pasture with his 2 TB mare friends, these 3 were raised together (the other 2 are owned by my friend) and a stallion jumped his stud fence (the far back pasture, 4 paddocks away) and came into his and the other 2 TB's pen and attacked him. How could i have done anything about this? and does anyone have any support. He isnt seriously hurt and the mares are safe as well. But he has stitches and staples and big gashes on his back, though they are healing nicely, i just need some support before the vet gets here this afternoon. (incase the news is bad..)

Oh no! I'm so sorry ThoroughbredJumper. I hope he heals well. Why are they chastising you? There was no way you could have even known that would happen. So sorry. I can't imagine what everybody's problem is, here! You could have a lawsuit in your favor, from both the attacker's owner and the BO.

Horse Racer~You are just now getting your drivers license??? That is the license you are talking about, right? And good luck with the riding lessons!

I'm back to this thread, everyone! My trainer (Who has evented 3* and could go higher but her new horse is green) was "let go" from her current training job, and until she finds a new barn I'm taking lessons with an instructor who does AQHA English stuff :/ But she should be getting lessons from my previous trainer again!!! Also, is anyone thinking about their trainer's holiday presents yet?

I am, my trainer, Laura, will be getting one of those show curtains from me with her Logo on it "Tom Foolery Riding". Her training name or whatever you would call it came from her old grand prix horse Tommy, whose show name was Tom Foolery. She raised him from a foal and he died on Christmas Day, 7 years ago. Since then she changed her "training name" or "business name" to Tom Foolery Riding after him, because she swore he would always be a part of his life. BUT! It does fit our odd and playful group very well ;P

Good idea! I'm getting my trainer a halter plate with her horse's show name on it to replace her race track plate, and a halter/bridle tag for her barn name, and I'm thinking about also getting everyone halter tags!
