You know you have a problem when....

Long story short, my board bill went from being 425 a month to a whopping 75!! I'm already thinking of getting a new pony! Not only so that I can have a reliable horse to ride, but possibly one that could maybe keep my satan horse company? He's come a long way already, he actually has an interest in me now, lets me pet him over his stall door....he's still not a big fan of me opening his stall door/ trying to get in his stall. But that's ok.

Anyway, I want this girl! She's such a cutie, and reasonably priced (this time I know why!).

that's what I was thinking too, but its nothing that some hay won't fix! She is 15, and I figure since she's only sound for flatwork anyway, being swaybacked wouldn't be too much of an issue.

LOL I'm working Tuesday and Thursday from 4-630 at the barn, and then all day Saturday.

Uhm, where do you board again? Ha ha.
That's awesome! When I worked off board I worked all weekend and it barely cut mine in half.

Hope when I move up to Gainesville I can find something as awesome as that!
I'd much rather have a barn job than a regular one while I'm in school.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

If the ad says she is only sound for flatwork then she probably isn't sound for that either. You may be buying more problems than you want to deal with. The vet probably won't let you work off the bill.

she's got a chip in her front HOCK??

After reading that I don't think they know what they're talking about. Her front right pastern looks funny as well.

Looking at her makes me think of the song "It ain't the years, it's the miles".
