Plus, if her daddy is so rich that he can afford to own and fly a private plane, why is she looking at inexpensive horses? I'd think if she were from a wealthy family, her parents would be aghast at the thought of buying a bargain basement horse for their child.
I call stuff and nonsense on the whole thread. I don't believe there have been any negotiations, except in the mind of this child.
Oh there you are speed! After your post that got deleted yesterday, I knew you couldn't have gone too far! Wow am I came back to check this thread. You left some real treasure for me
To clarify a few things for you...This "child"...
is a legal adult. I have been for nearly 2 years now. I live with my parents, because I attend college in my hometown, and see no reason to live in the crowded dorms. That does not make me a child. I have friends my age who are overseas in the military, some who've gotten married and have a little one on the way, other who buy tobacco. My point...at my age I am legally considered an adult in the eyes of the law. Clearly, you still find it fit to call me a child, but that's your "view".
Having an airplane does not make my family wealthy
ANYMORE than your angry posts make you a troll.
My father has a an airplane. SO WHAT. That's what he happens to do for a living--airplanes. Flys, fixed and fuels them. That's the business he started over a decade ago,that my siblings and I were raised in. I've been working since I was 11 years old at that business on a weekly basis. I work 40hrs a week during the summer and 20 during the school year. My money is just that MY money. Unlike some other young people I have met, I get an overwhelming sense of guilt when people buy things for me, and a sense of accomplishment for paying for myself.
I bought my truck. I pay my insurance. If I want go to the dentist, I pay. If I want an eye exam, I pay. If I need a filling, I pay. I pay for my cat's neuter, all my textbooks and portion of my tuition.
My family isn't wealthy, by the way. Actually, we're having one of the slowest winters we've had in years. But I don't need to share my life story with you.
Having him fly me to see that horse---THAT WAS my christmas gift.
Also, the "ppe" THE VET SAID ON MONDAY "WELL I MIGHT BE ABLE TO MAKE IT OUT THERE ON WEDNESDAY. IF I HAVE TIME BETWEEN HOUSE CALLS." It was a "wait and see and I think so". I called and cancelled. I can completely understand comply with any fee she has for the reservation of her time.
Okay. I'm off my soap box now. Speed--bring it.
And I'm starting to agree. I'm never going to find something, but that rescue horse will find me soon. Working with him may be just what I need.
THanks maggi and horseofcourse.
