My dad won't pay for Jack anymore..
I don't know what to do. The barn owner isnt one of those "if you muck stalls i will pay you" people.

So we might have to give him up /:

Any ideas?

Is there any other stables near you? could you get a job? Could you talk to your dad about it?
Just some ideas that popped into my head

Alot of barn owners will let you much stalls and do chores and only make you pay half.

See if you can go in 1/2 and 1/2 with someone, like a friend or another student at your barn. Maybe if the cost of keeping him was less your dad would be more willing to keep him. Make sure to get everything down on paper though and have everyone sign it (both parents and both kids)!

^Oh yeah! You could do like a lease thing. (What justsambam said)

Why is your dad not paying, is it financial problems or not keeping your grades up or what? Maybe you need to have a heart to heart sit down with your dad.

I agree with Vida, depending on the reason you need to maturely sit down and talk to him about what is going on and what you can do to keep Jack.

We are at the cheapest barn right now. And i believe that my dad is mad at me cause my parents are in the middle of a divorce, and i think hes mad at me cause i dont want to live with him.

get a job is my 1st thought. Also pasture board instead of stall is alot cheaper.

SydLovesJackers 02-08-2010 05:44 PM
