I talked to my parents about the horse..kinda. I mean, I mentioned it to them. My mom wasn't completely a "no way". She was actually thinking of things to do. Like, I have to ride the horse first, obviously, I have to call places to see where to board, I have to talk to Merrick, yada yada yada. But, it's wierd. I'm not...nervous or excited. I mean, it feels like nothing is happening at all. i don't know if that's a good sign, or a bad one.
But, now I really really really need some people who are experienced in the "art of buying horses" help. This is my first horse that I'm buying, and I really don't know the way of things. Like, how much is a good boarding fee? Do I need horse insurance and what does it do? Do you think it's ok if I let the stable I'm boarding at use my horse for lessons a couple nights a week in order to lessen the fee? how much, in general, should a vet and shoing fee be?
The list goes on and on. If anyone knows anything about buying horses, PLEASE help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
