    Default My mother buys me everything..

    So it's like this. My mom supports my events, she knows I love it. Last year she bought me a tr level and a prelim horse - totaling less that $287,000...awesome. My mom is so understanding. My old training level horses was wining but started stopping so I sold her and got the new one. Mom got me a new four-hour gooseneck to go with my truck. And she even helps me at event when she can. I can get anything I want for eventing, my horses and me. How lucky am I?

    well sometimes, i feel guilty about not giving back. but geez, working with my trainer, training two horses, going to events...I don't have enough time. Maybe someday I'll have event barn. My goals are not clear beyond training from one event to the nest. And at age 43, there's still plenty of time to do what i love. My mom so understanding. My friends tease me about having everything, especially when i get bored going to the same events and doing well.

    Do you know me and what do you think? Upside/downside?

    There is enough actual action right now, we need not busy ourselves at the troll farm.

    It was weird before. You just didn't have the perspective that you have now.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have,
    at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    From this and other posts, I have decided that this individual enjoys getting others worked up. Surely they can't be serious about the immature things that they have written .

    As mentioned before, with all the difficulty this past weekend, we certainly don't need this type of post. I hope that no one will play into this and feed the troll.

    ETA: Never said we shouldn't have fun with it, though! Carolinadreamin', love your sense of humor. That will do us all some good!

    I want to be adopted by the mom, even though I'm well over 18. I have my eye on a nice f350 and slant load balanced ride trailer. Momma troll - please adopt me.

    I could think of a lot of things not totaling $287,000 that would come in handy!

    What a coincidence! My mom buys me everything too!

    and btw: I'll have another drink of whatever she's drinking!

    This isn't even a good troll. Good trolling is subtle. This is more like an established poster making a spoof.

    My favorite no-pity line is "suck it up, princess!"
