Oh trust me.....i'm the best bargin shopper in the county....my husband works for a sheriff dept and I run a home daycare, some times money can be tight....DON'T HURT ME
but I use to be one of those rich spoiled bratz.....i got over it when I got married and had a family. My husband and I have 3 kids and they always come first, horses come second but never skimped on both.
I buy used tack all the time at the auctions we go to and if I do not like it I resale it. I have 4 english saddles and 5 western saddles and only 4 horses....but I pick them up at great deals, my hay I buy in bulk and make payments on it so that's save big bucks.....grain we only give out in the end of fall and winter. Mare and foal to luna and bell all the time. But my vet bills are always paid in full.
my grandmother died in january so I got a inheradence from her so that's how I was able to splurged on my daughter.
there's a poor horse in the next town over that the sheriff is always the family because they never feed it, it just eats weeds. Stand in a junk yard all day and is thrown a round bale in every few months when ever the sheriff threatens them. There is other ways of being around a horse if you can not aford them. With me if you can ride and show me that you can i'll let you ride one of mine for free, my guys are getting to fat and need to be worked. Sorry if the rant sounded bad but it just bugs me.....
