    Sometimes it's a person's maturity level that you're up against and they just need to grow up. She sounds like my 15 year old daughter. When I had my wages cut recently due to the economy and told...

    Keep looking! Your horse is out there.

    It would be one thing if there were a shortage of horses out there.

    You sound like an OTTB candidate to me!

    My only concern would be that you've never owned a horse. They are not the easiest or cheapest horses to own, generally speaking. If you're not prepared,...

    I actually envy you!

    When you move to a new place, you can sort-of reinvent yourself. No one knows you. It's a clean slate. Time to start new, good habits and make new friends. Keep an open...
