buying my lease horse?

Hey guys i'd really appreciate some advice and opinions on this. I have been leasing my fjord horse for about 4/5 months now. I am totally in love with him! He has flaws like any other horse but I really feel he is perfect for me. We have an extremely strong bond and he is my absolute everything.

I really want to buy him.

Before I started leasing Leo my parents agreed to let me buy a horse. They said wait till january so we can pay off the credit card first. Everything was fine. Then about 2 weeks later they said that I could not buy a horse anymore. They said they wanted me to lease instead which then I found Leo.

Don't get me wrong I am extremely grateful to even lease a horse, its been the best 5 months of my life! But do you think my mum might let me buy Leo? I'm obviously not the one paying, but I would contribute to feed, board and everything. They've said before that I could buy a horse untill they changed their minds, but do you think they'd buy Leo for me if I hinted?

I suspect they want to find out if i'll stick to it first but any thoughts/advice woulde much appreciated thanks! XX

Being nosy, but why did your parents decide to prohibit purchasing a horse?

Not a clue OkieGal, when I ask why they just say no

Perhaps your parents are worried about job security and some things are just not shared with the offspring. How would you feel if you had to sell the horse-you'd be heartbroken. In todays economy one just doesn't know if or when the axe will fall and you need to understand that a horse is the first to go when money is tight.

Instead of hinting to them, ask them to sit down and discuss it with you. Try to have as much information you can about what responsibilities and cost of owning a horse entails beforehand. Doing that, they would take it that you are serious about it, and showing responsibility and maturity.

How long are they allowing you to lease the horse? Will they allow you to lease him as long as the owner will until you could buy him on your own?

Is the owner selling the horse to you, or are you just trying to get your parents' permission first?

Well the owner is happy to keep him or sell so basicly if I can get my parents permission I can have him.

Well I hope you get the permission you deserve! :)
