Now before you call me a brat for wanting a second horse, hear me out. I've been riding Remie since I was 6 years old and I am now 15. I've wanted to own him my whole life. When the farm got evicted and he was looking for a home, my parents finally let me have the horse of my dreams! But, an old leg injury started rearing it's ugly head. I officially got him yesterday and the second he was in our possession we had a vet come see him. He has been pronounced permanently lame. I'm devastated. My eyes burn from crying. But I'm hoping that, in time, I can convince my parents that getting a second horse is a good idea. I was going to do the mounted games with my boarder and Remie was too tall anyway. I found this perfect horse who has experience with the games on petfinder. I know the adopting part is the cheapest but having a lot of hand-me-down tack and a lot of help from the boarder, I'm almost sure we can do it especially since I will be working at an apple orchard on the weekends in the fall. I'm devastated and just hoping that their will be a glimmer of happiness if I can at least get them really considering it, even if it takes a year or two. I'm just wondering ways you have convinced your parents who have the same money worries as mine.
