A job is pretty much part of the problem. No one is hiring right now. I applied for over 7 jobs this week alone and haven't heard back about any of them. Right now I'm just doing odd jobs for people and random house sitting/pet sitting to make ends meet and it's not working so well. I do have 2 people that I do odd jobs for every week and I make about $60 a week reliably doing that but with normal expenses and gas (I have to spend about $50 every two weeks on gas) it just doesn't add up to saving anything.
Bubblegum- My BO (Lacey's other half owner) doesn't really believe in floating teeth and stuff unless it's absolutely obviously necessary. She's barely making ends meet as well so maintenance work is not high on her money priorities. >.<
Spastic- I agreed with my BO to half own her for the moment because if I continued to lease her I had no say about her hoof care and her hooves were being left to get way way too long and making it basically dangerous to ride. So I asked if we could work out some sort of half ownership thing and I'd work Lacey and take care of her hooves and stuff while the BO paid for her food and worming and that sort of thing... And since she doesn't really believe in preventative medicine I'm kinda out of luck. That's an excellent idea about a payment plan. I'll go email them now to find out where they stand on that... I agree that I really shouldn't have to pay for all of that since I'm only Lacey's half owner but I don't really see a way around it without overstepping my boundaries with the BO. You've made me feel a bit better. =)
Also, I don't know how to drive a stick or tow a trailer and the only vehicle they have that can tow their trailer is a stick... I'll call my BO tonight and see if she knows how to give shots, I should have asked her...
It's such an awkward situation. I almost wish I had never started working with Lacey (because of all the drama) but at the same time I love her to death.
