I have thought about that actually.. but the lesson barns in my area.. are the ones I don't meet weight limit for anyways.. so I'd have to drive again...lol ( see a pattern here) I don't know of any rescues real close to me either.. there are a few 2-3 hours away in both directions I have seen online always could look into it though.. and with people is it wrong to have a put up or shut up attitude now.. Im thinking on starting that.. because people will say they want to help, or try to schedule something.. then back out on it or cancel on me.. and Im tired of trying to rearrange my schedule for people who don't really plan on doing anything to begin with.. I mean im easy to get along with.. just I hate having to try to work around schedules, or find a babysitter if need be when wife isnt working and im not working and someone can watch kid, and all that just to be cancelled on the day before, because washing their hair is more important than the lesson they scheduled ( not me)
