But see, to people like me, who lost my job, got a little behind, found a really good job, and is now just catching up, $800 IS a lot of money. As I said, I can afford to take very good care of my horses, they want for nothing. They are all happy, healthy, and all have an appointment coming up for dental work. As I said, I have an emergency savings, but that is reserved for emergencies ONLY. If I were to take what I have in savings and buy a horse, that would be irresponsible. But to say that because I don't have $800 upfront for a new horse means that I shouldn't have mine, isn't fair. They're well taken care of, my bills are paid. Now, for someone that cannot even pay their bills, I see where this is a problem. But for someone like me, while I don't have a whole lot of money for extras but everything that needs to be paid is taken care of, I don't see a problem.
