Yep so the deal we worked out today is im going to sponsor him basically. $250 a month to cover his feed and farrier (2 biggest sore points for me lol) and the rescue still covers his vet bills.
We came to the agreement that it would be a casual sponsorship so I don't havae a set amount of time to sponsor him. That way if a family comes that wants to adopt him and we both approve of them then he will go to them. If not and I still want to get him at my PCS date then I still wont have to pay an adoption fee and they will get me the rescues discount to ship him home which will probably be around $800-900 easy peasy.
Plus im going to have alot of extra income headed my way now lol. Im going to be training a 3 yr old filly for some friends at the ranch, I have my little side projects (550 creations and ducttape creations ((dont ask lol))) up and running...tomorrow im going to talk to one of the other boarders about working with their horse as well. They just hired one of the volunteers and she is HORRID. She doesnt know how to ride she can't even direct rein or lunge plus she is immensely over this horses weight limit so hopefully I can get the owners AND the poor horse out of a very sticky situation with this crazy chick trying to scam them. (another looong story)
But anyways lots of drama, lots of work, hopefully some good moolah and CHAMP coming my way lolol
