I don't know. But Alwaysbehind says Google hates her, and she can never find anything on it. I've not had that particular experience. I seriously heart Google. In a purely platonic way, of course!

Google hates me sometimes. If I'm looking for something really important, I can never find it. If I'm curious about something and try to look it up on Google, I can just click the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button and it pops right up!

I think I just had a deja vu....

And another one about saying that I thought I just had a deja vu!


Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

If I was AB I would Google 'how to use Google'.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Sarah,
Good suggestion!

I wish I could have one horse.


To the person that started this thread-

I was once like this....ALWAYS wanting something "new". It made me feel like i could start fresh. I discovered that you have to realize all the blessings you already have :) Things come a lot easier that way. But stop excpecting things. It's fine if you want another horse (who doesnt) but just try to keep in mind what it is like to pay for the upkeep of these animals, try to put yourself in your parents shoes. And, even if you arent enjoying your horse you own right now...LEARN to! Because maybe God sent that horse to you for a reason ;) Also, when other people say " show them you can take on the responibility by spending a lot of time with your horse now". Don't fake it. Actually enjoy the time with Spider, you might then figure out you like him more than you thought.

Good luck!

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Which means we're just beating a dead horse at this point.

Very nice SR!

OP: Get a job and you won't need your parents permission.

Hmm. Wow. Most of us are just struggling to even get one horse.

I know you've probably heard it before but be thankful for what you have. That's the way your parents probably see it--you have one nice horse, and you don't get them any other reasons other than "I NEED another horse."
No one "needs" a horse without having any reasons for it... other than having a horse as a status symbol.
Horses are a very rare privilege, not a right.

It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no telling where you might be swept off to."

To the OP.
Be lucky you have a horse some of us can't even afford another horse. Heck! I need another horse but until I come up with a job and all the money to get the horse and care then I can't so I rather lease out or something. My horse that I own isn't ridable anymore shes just a pasture pet so thats why I either need a horse or would like to lease a horse. Your horse is sound and ridable how is he not good for you? Is green and your scared to do a lot with him? If you LOVE him then do what you can for him don't let him come to a waaste or sell him to someone who actually cares.
Either way you sound spoiled. You need to be thankful.

To the OP, I hope you take a little time to just hear yourself. You sound like a selfish brat. In your own words..the only reason you deserve another horse is because all the rich girls at your barn have multiple horses. We really aren't trying to be mean to you...only to make you see that you are a very fortunate person. You just don't seem to realize that. There are many girls that will dream of horses their entire life, but will never own one. Try and see it from that side of things. Just try and understand that horse ownership is a privilege. There will always be people with more horses than you...there will always be people with a better one (even if it is only in their own mind). You need to learn to look at your own horse as treasure...or sell him and find yourself one that you do feel that way about.
