Also, if I did buy a horse, know that he would not be ignored. I come home most weekends, and I also have a sister who would ride him while I'm gone. Which brings up another question of mine: should I instead find a barn near my school to keep him? Then would I move him back home in the summer or other breaks? I don't want to move him around a lot if it bothers him... honestly I don't know how well horses deal with change.
