    Duren your on a Texas thread.
    We believe in excess everything. If you want someone to discourage you talk to a Yankee.
    Even if they say yes their accent will kill any urge. LOL Shalom

    Might I mention I just lost a Clyde Cross mare in December. I'm wondering if that's why I like this girl so much.
    Geez, no overanalyzing necessary. She looks like she needs you
    Can't wait to hear how it goes on Saturday.

    Good heavens, when did you EVER know a horse person to discourage another horse person from buying more tack or more horses?

    And no, I ain't going to count those "I bought a baby horse for my four year old so they could grow up together" as "horse people".

    Well, Gulliver finally got home safe and sound yesterday evening. Our two dimwits were so curious, prancing around everywhere and squealing. Then this afternoon, we sold Princess to a nice lady in Tomball to use to go on trail rides with her son. Bubba, who's been with Princess for the past 7-8 years, was torn. He was prancing, calling to her, and nearly ran after the trailer as it was going out the gate. They called to each other as Princess was hauled down the road. It was sad, I nearly cried. I'm just glad Bubba has Gully to keep him company now that Princess is gone.

    You can definitely tell these are Texans on this thread! But while we're on the subject of multiple horses, I have a dilema that I need some advice on. My husband gave me one of his mares last year that he didn't ride anymore because of multiple reasons and I already had a TWH gelding and a 2yo filly we were starting to saddle break. I decided to sell the gelding then we lost the filly to an ulcer/impaction (not quite sure which) and I never found the right home for my gelding. So now I'm retraining his mare b/c all she knew was go and he wants me to sell my other horse because he doesn't think I ride him enough. I do ride him at least once a week and have had him for 12 yrs but my mare needs more work than he does. Question is, how do y'all manage multiple horses, time, work, family????

    Kctop,
    To answer your question about time management, for me it is a matter of priorities. I don't have big family responsibiities anymore, and if I did, I would have trouble with one horse, not to speak of multiple horses! The women I know who have children are from "horse families", where everyone is into riding. I work a job and a half, and take care of two horses, ride one regularly. That is what I do. Period. My house is not cleaned as regularly as it should be, I don't go out much, don't go to a health club, or other things that people do in their spare time. I wanted to take up yoga this summer, but there isn't time for it. As expensive and time-consuming as horses are, the pleasure I get from riding and being around horse people trumps anything else I may be missing out on
