    IMO, I would want the adult to be horse crazy before buying another horse, after only a year of ownership, and then building a barn. Horses are so time consuming and expensive for people who just...

    I wonder how much this shop spends in advertising dollars ... at least $20, right? Dollars that possibly bring people into the store, or perhaps not. Here we have returning customers in the store. ...

    It's too bad she ended up being a meanie.

    And it appears that Grace Slick is living permanently on a bus now, so she may need a gofundme pretty soon as well.

    The wise readers of COTH were right, then, they didn't want to ride, anyway. So it was a good out for her, and you can move on!

    Yes, instead of a stallion, he's a recently gelded guy who has some stallion attributes and thus your conflict/action for the story. Much more reasonable a gelded ex-stallion would be at a boarding...

    I think this might be an upsetting and shocking email for them to get ... even if they were possibly expecting it.

    Why is he on the cover of Vogue, anyway? What do fashionistas care about racehorses?

    I agree the photo doesn't do this horse justice, and is typical of fashion photography where it's all just...

    You say, "Actually I think it would be interesting for the stallion in the story to appear to be just another horse working for a living. Like yeah, he's got balls but no one flaunts them." I agree...

    It's still a little strange... Couldn't he have sent her a PM, at least?

    But, glad you two worked it all out here on COTH.

    I concur with all the people who are concerned about the BO -- she won't be boarding for much longer, with a degenerative disease. Caring for five horses is a physical, tough job, and requires a...
