    A lot of people see them as pets. If you don't, that's your opinion.

    My horses certainly are part of the family.

    It's not an opinion - it's a fact. Horses are livestock. Period.

    If you want them taxed and treated as pets - feel free to talk to your state representative - and be prepared to pay more out of your pocket and have more restrictions and requirements. In our state we lobbied hard to have the goverment see them as livestock.

    I very much love my horses - and my cats. In the end, they are animals and my husband comes first.

    Sorry to hear that. I am going to start working with a trainer this weekend. I am going to try again.

    How the government sees them is irrelevant. Horses are often kept as pets and valued as such. That's all I'm saying.

    Why can't I find a place to do riding lessons at? Contacted a few people but it seems like they're not interested in making any money because no one has called me back. The fancy barns I have looked at teach mostly english or eventing. This is so frustrating. My advise is don't advertise that you teach lessons if you wont call perspective new clients back.


    *Sorry for the early morning rant.*

    That stinks Bella. Wish you were closer, I'd gladly welcome you in my barn.

    Ask farrier, vet, at the feed/tack store, etc. There may be folks out there who don't advertise. Word of mouth is a good bet in general, as people are usually more than willing to dish good & bad. I get all of my students/clients that way. It's nice because I don't have to advertise to stay more than busy & they have a good idea what I'm about before hand.
