Horse owning essentials:
A sense of humor
Humility and the ability to put your ego aside
Low maintenance friends who won't hate you when you cancel 3 girls' nights in a row due to various equine emergencies
A good first aid kit (for YOU and the horses alike)
Wine, beer, or your favorite mixed drink for after the emergencies
A phone-book full of trusted horse-people...and/or psychiatrists
A camera to capture the good and bad moments
Lack of embarrassment for when you need to clean sheaths, messy behinds, udders and the like.
Muscles for all the barn chores on top of riding...unless you have high school aged neighbors who will buck hay for $15 and cookies.
