I'm a college sophmore. And I work very little during the school calendar (only 19 hours a week).
I live...at home :( I don't understand the type of people from the university (most of the girls I secretly refer to as "barbies"--because they must have a made in china stamp somewhere under their fake hair, nails, boobs or short skirts and strappy hollyster tops. Me...Im plain. I really like cars, and offroading, I don't usually wear makeup, and I just wear plain stuff or western shirts or things with "FORD" on them. I don't want to talk about nails or guys.). I've tried to be friendly and it just hasn't worked. Anyhow..So I don't have any friends..And the time I'm not working, studying or in classes I find myself at home. I find things to do. Mess with my birds. Do homework. Last night I processed a turkey start to finish ALL BY MYSELF for the first time! I was so proud. Lol
We have a mustang that's not broke, and also a big expensive APHA gelding that my dad bought for my 11 year old sister but she wont ride him. He's literally been standing for 4 weeks and not been ridden. She won't touch him. So today I went down and saddled and bridled him, and just as I got on and swung the gate open (you could tell how much he wanted to go. Heís 5 years old and has been penned up for weeks rotting). She came screaming down the hill, ďHeís my horse! YOU CANíT DO THAT! YOUíLL RUIN HIM! GET OFF HIM NOW!Ē And whined and whined and threatened till I had to get off. So now..what is he doingÖHeís standing in the corral..Unsaddled and unridden and utterly bored. I feel like heís wasting.
I really have been wanting to buy a horse to ride on trails and maybe do some arena work with on the days I donít have classes. But now Iím kind of thinking..All the people Iíve heard of SELL THEIR HORSES DUE TO GOING TO COLLEGEÖI SEEM TO BE DOING THE OPPOSITE..SHOULD I EVEN BE THINKING ABOUT BUYIN A HORSE AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE? Iím going to be going to this university for at least a year. Or is it more fair that I just try to blow off the idea of wanting a horse again for the sake of itís not fair to a horse to buy one at this point in my life? Iím so torn.
