My husband knows how important my horses are. He might ask me to sell one due to finances or something, but not make me get ride of them all - especially Toby. Heck, my husband even has his own horse - that is the way to do it, get them hooked as well. LOL.

If it really came down to it and for some reason I had to choose one or the other, (though I don't really see how this could happen. Wait I do. Perhaps. If like.. my man lived in another country and couldn't afford to get to me and we loved each other and the ONLY way I'd be able to get to him was to sell my pony then yeah, bye bye pony,) I would choose my lover. Lol I'm a hopeless romantic, any romantic movie makes me go "aww! I want that!" or cry so yup, I'd pick the guy. But only if it was like... for real love and not just whatever.

Got spurs?

can't agree more. I dated a guy for over 2.5 years and he never got over the fact that my horses are my true love. Aside from a few other issues he was out the door!!!!

It is a tough thing to deal with but I look at it like this: Horses wont come home late and drunk, they can't cheat on ya, and they may fight you on issues but they wont talk back!!!

I am not sure who I'd choose if I was demanded to choose in the "Its ME or the Horses" situation. If that were the case he or she would clearly not understand and I'm not sure I'd WANT to be tied to that person!
Lucky though... I will never have to choose. My fiance was a "city boy" but now seems to enjoy the horses almost as if he'd chosen them as a hobby himself :)

I havent voted yet, but I wanted to chime in anyway.

When I was looking at buying Junior, I told my husband that I had bought him. He freaked out. We had a discussion, in which he said that I would have to choose; the horse or him. Of course I never gave him an answer and told him that I didnt buy the horse.

Now... If I were EVER faced with that situation again, I would chose the horse because the horse would never ask me to choose in the first place; and honestly I don't think I could ever be happy with someone I would resent.

Luckily my hubby would never ask me to make a silly decision like that. He knows I love horses and how they are a BIG part of my life passion. He bought me a farm so I can have a horse life. However, we do make all decisions mutually and if it came to health or financial or other, I know there would be no question about it...our horses would have new homes. By the way, he had never even been around a horse when we met and has his own now.

That's always a tough decision, it all depends on the situation, your broke or he just plane doesn't want the horse around. I'm also lucky my husband surprised me with my very first horse right after xmas. We have always been huge animal people and normally do rescues, he loves our Dallas as much as I do. I guess you never know until you are put in that situation b/c what you say now could change from when/if it actually happens. Lets just hope it doesn't and just go on from there
