Phew, it's great to know I'm not the only one!

I remember being a young girl and looking at the livestock classifieds in the local paper. My mom caught me on the phone with a woman (i was only 12) trying to arrange a deal for working in exchange for riding. I wasn't what the woman was looking for, but she appreciated my drive and how much I was willing to do for a horse. She ended up having me do stable work in exchange for lessons. Too bad that only lasted a few months....

I never outgrew this, apparently. I'm just waiting for the right moment when I find that perfect situation that I can't turn down.

Chevaux, that is some very practical reasoning.

gunslinger, I really do believe that! I can't wait!

Another guilty one here, I was idly browsing the ads one night, having specified Arab Mare, above 6, over 15hh and in Saskatchewan here. I got 3 hits, and as looking through without much interest when I, on a whim, hit the pedigree link on one, and found I was looking at a daughter of my own mare.

Sooo I went and saw her, and ended up not only buying her, but her stable mate

sounds like there are a number of us who could benefit from a 12-step program. : )
