I just married someone who puts up with/indulges me in my horse addiction, as I make my own $$!

I don't happen to think he was, Val. Nothing in the rest of his post came off as light hearted banter, so I hardly think the last part was any different.

I actually had a chance to marry a millionaire when I was young, nubile, and quite the catch. Didn't do it, because I've always been independent and more interested in loving someone than taking advantage of them for their money.

Chauvinistic, keep-'em-pregnant-barefoot-and-in-the-kitchen mentalities are a very bad hot button for me. Women are no more in need of being 'taken care of' than men. It should be an equal partnership, or it's merely an owner/chattel relationship.

100% agree. Although quite often it's not a case from what I see around and with my friends. Sadly.

Ick, he was about 35 years older than me, bald, and had liver spots! Shudder!

I lost track of him years ago, but if he's still alive he'd be well into his 80s by now. Ewwww......

I actually had a friend who kept trying to set us up, because she thought she'd be able to profit from being my friend if I married him.

Actually I was trying to be light hearted but maybe because of the serious matter of paying for a horse's keep, my choice of words could have been better. Too often the long term cost of keeping an animal which can live for 25 years or more is underestimated.

Down our way, partly because there is a race course close by, too many failed racing thorobreds get bought at auction for very little money and then afterwards the owner finds out just how much it costs to keep a horse. So the horse gets passed on if lucky or euthanaised iif unlucky.

If the owner is female especially one who holds down a fancy job and has a home to watch over, maybe even children to organise, then she won't have much time to play with the horse.

But if there were a partner (male or female) - who earned enough money to pay all the bills , then perhaps there would be enough money to put the horse in livery and have a cleaner to keep the house clean and leave over enough time to play with the horse. A horse costs in both money and time.

Sexism - no that's not what I meant to infer. I don't particularly care about the sex of the partner, I just don't want to see the cost of keeping the horse to be a justifiable reason to put the animal down.

on that friend SR. Really??

My uncle used to always joke that he wanted to marry an heiress with one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel.

My hubby is happy to support the horsie addiction as long as I have (and earn myself) the 'extra' funds to pay for it. Which, with careful attention, I do.

In my opinion, it's way more satisfying that way.

All right, thank you for explaining. I'll put my Amazon Warrior away now.

Jake, yes really. She was always a materialistic, what are you going to do for ME type person, and from what I hear through the grapevine that hasn't changed even though she's well into her 60s.

We haven't been friends for many years now, and I don't miss her one bit.

Eww to the liver spotted old man, SR. Good call! What a horrible friend too, sad the way some people operate.

My hubby doesn't foot the bill for any of my horses. He gladly would but I'm not okay with that. They are my responsibility & if I couldn't swing it on my own I would be downsizing.

I'm not surprised you're not friends anymore SR. Someone like that would drive me absolutely insane as our values would be polar opposites. My ex sis-in-law was big on 'keeping up with the joneses'. I'm still friends with the ex who wasn't like that but am pretty happy I don't have to deal with her.

My hubby is very good about helping out with all the non-financial things (barn/fence repair, feeding when I'm travelling, picking up shavings at feedstore, putting up hay etc.). In fact he rather enjoys it. :)
