It's almost the same with DH and I. He is no way a horse person, but says nothing about the time/money I spend on them, or going with friends riding, for the day, weekend, whatever. I'm really LOW maintainence. I don't need fancy purses, shoes, clothes. Give me jeans and a tshirt and I'm good! lol
He does things for me that I don't ask for, he said he'd fix the metal work on the trailer, that way I'd have a trailer, instead of borrowing one, he's fixing the loafing shed, he checks the horse water more than I do! lol It's the little things. I do "car" stuff with him, and he helps in little ways with my horses. As TG said, it's respect!

CC your husband sounds amazing. Seems like y'all have a great relationship. Does he have a younger, single brother by chance? LOL

I forget to splurge on myself as well. I love taking care of Henny and buying him every single thing he needs/I want for him, but sometimes I have to step back and realize I'm not presenting myself as well as I could. A new halter could be a pair of jeans or a couple tops. Henny has millions of leads and halters, while I only have one pair of jeans. Come on now, I gotta spoil myself sometimes!

I'm a sandals/tshirt/capri girl myself -however I have some pairs of cute 3" heels that look great with skinny jeans that I wear sometimes....I even chased down my goats in them once...LOL!

I felt like Jennifer Garner in Alias or Piper Perabo in Covert Affairs....

Relationships are a full time job and require both parties to give and take.
If your relationship is working for you tell the others to go jump in a lake. Shalom

After I got home today, went out to feed, make sure there was water, routine stuff.... Was scratching the itches on my 7 month pregnant mare. She loves it when I stratch her belly just infront of her teats...teets? anyway... I clean her as I'm there, she starts making goofy faces saying "oh that's good" So I'm scratching/rubbing all over. Next thing I know she is picking up her leg, and hiking it like a dog peeing on a tree! Her hoof was about 2 ft in the air! I wish I had my camera, it was so funny looking! lol

I want that 8 yr old bay arab on that other thread! He's a looker. I could train him up and have him on the trail in 6 months. We'd be doing our first slow 50 by this time next year. he's short, too. Love that.

I personally would love having a paso fino. It's pretty well the only haired horse that is want. I love my Quarter Horses and Paints. I would likely be good with an Australian stock horse as well.

TG LOL - it is tempting - but I'll have to pass. My plate is full.

I did get a chance to ride my pony this eve! Hooray! He did very well - and is still very responsive and soft. Glad my big kid has been riding him right. Pull him out of the pasture and saddle him or hitch him up after a year and he is so relaxed about everything. About the only thing he knows is how to go forward, back and whoa in a simple snaffle. PERFECT for the girls. I've always wanted to teach him more but I know if you give a horse with 50 different buttons to kids, it is like giving your laptop to your toddler and walking away....what a mess!

I love my lil' paint pony!

WW - it is the only haired horse you want? As opposed to a horse without hair? Kind of like one of those naked rats or chinese crested?

LOL! You left the barn door open on that one.....
