Hmmm...I agree with Joshie that if that your significant other tells you "it is your horse or me" that is not the only problem with the relationship. Horses may be the most visible problem but I sure there are many more underlying issues. I have had horses my whole life and have been married for 4 years. My husband fully understood my involvement with horses and he himself grew up on a horse farm. My husband is as deeply involved exhibition poultry (yes, show chickens) as I am with my horses. My horses and his chickens do cause a stress on our relationship but is more due to financial matters, not the time either of us spend with our loves.
