If you won the lottery (assuming you want to spend some $ on your habit) what horse would you buy?

I don't think I would get another horse. I would have the ones I own living and traveling in high style though:wink:

There is a palomino mare who is a Firewater Flit on her papers, and I think she is a daughter of On the Money Red. She is owned by the folks who owned On the Money Red. After I bought a snazzy new place with a fine barn and an awesome new truck and trailer, I'd buy her. :)

I would start by paying off all of my loans, give my parents enough to pay off their places.

Then I would move back to my home arena and by a nice parcel of land. Build a decent house (not too big though because I dont like cleaning...lol) and a sufficent sized barn with an indoor/outdoor arena and nice pastures. I would like to be able to raise my own crops, and buy a nice truck and trailer.

I dont think I would get a different horse... just get some good training on her.

All in all though I would like to stay on the conservative side of things. Make sure to hold enough money back to be able to retire on and still be able to maintain my addiction.

I'm going to be different, and say I would buy a car!
Simply because, I use my parents' car right now to get to the barn, which means me only going twice a week. With my own car, I could go as much as a I want! :D

(But this wouldn't happen, because I don't plan on playing the lottery).

:lol:

I'm gonna make things easy for myself... if I had $1,000,000 I absolutely had to spend within a week, I would:

(in brackets is a running total of my estimates)

- Pay off my car (15000)
- Buy a custom saddle for Denny (20000)
- Put money down on a house (520000)
- Buy an Andalusian or Friesian (my dream breeds) and buy all new tack for the new horse(550000)
- Buy a brand new 2009 Ford F350 King Ranch fully loaded (610000)
- Buy a brand new 3 or 4 horse trailer with basic LQ (680000)
- Buy more tack (700000)
- Buy Rich his dream car and bike (800000)
- Spend the rest on clothes, pet stuff, and buy friends and family gifts.

There ya go.

That's a hard question! I would probably get a paint pony because I prefer ponies, and paint ones are just adorable! I love pony attitudes! I would also spoil my pony with all sorts of cute tack and stuff. Maybe i'd get some new riding clothes for me too! I hope I will win the lottery someday...

Easy, question.
I would use the money to buy a really, really nice warmblood, a huge draft (I really want to rescue a PMU baby someday), and a mini.
And then I would end up going to auction and buying some very, very sad looking oldies that nobody wants and giving them a place to retire.

I would buy Neela.
Then I would buy Mountain, possibly Playboy back.
I would buy a 100 acres in Kentucky (or somewhere), built a very nice barn.
Save some slaughter horses.
Then built a house next to the massive, wonderful barn.
Then if I have any money left over, buy a Lamborghini. :wink::lol:

Hm, I'd buy myself a warmblood. And some nice tack.

Then I'd save the rest for board and vet bills and stuff.

A horse truck, or maybe a goosneck (we have a float but a truck would be much better for longer journeys), a new car ( I'm sharing one with my sister at the moment).
