That's good advice skippy...
crazyhorse, being a mom, I'll tell you what works.....It is all about your responsibility, NOT BEGGING. Anyone can beg, but not everyone can be responsible and actually DESERVE what it is they want.
If you want that pony, then you need to show that you can handle it. Get your chores done around the house without being told, make sure your homework is always done, help with the dishes, don't argue with your parents, all that stuff shows that you can be responsible, because a horse is a tremendous responsiblity. You need to be able to handle the expenses, the cleaning, the vet care, farrier care, the cost of tack and supplies, a trainer, and who knows what else?! and expecting your parents to do all the hard work for you is not exactly fair nor responsible. So, how badly do you want your own pony??....show you can work for it.
I never give my children something THAT enormous until they have shown me that they can handle it. They must deserve it in order to receive it....if not, they don't get it.
Keep that in your mind, because that is the stuff that good parents look for. Good luck to you, I not only hope you get your pony, I hope you DESERVE your pony!
