My horse, My money. Wheres the problem?
i'm sure i'm not the first with this issue, so I really just would like to know how you guys handled it. If your going to bring down the hammer on me, can you do it nicely please?
My fiance used to pay for my horse, because he was the only one bringing in income, since I worked in exchange for our room and board. Now, I work two jobs (sometimes three depending on if i'm training something) and am a much better budget-er/saver/whatever. Currently, he has more debt than he can shake a stick at, while my savings has a nice little cushion on it. Now fro the problem....
Any time I talk about buying new tack, or how much the next potential project horse is, he gets all huffy and puffy telling me how its too expensive. But he's not spending anything 0n my horse, or anything involving my horse/s, and hasn't for nearly 8 months. Discussions about it with him turn into arguments on how I should be doing more, although I already pay 3/4 our rent and our electric because he's irresponsible.
How do I get the point across that I will do what i'm going to do regardless of his opinion, because I want to and I can?
Oh, and yes, I can afford the care and time expense for another horse. (especially since i've started working jockey hrs!)
