PostSubject: Buying a yearling   March 22nd 2010, 6:12 pm

Hey guys, I have wanted forever to buy a young horse to train myself. I know that it is a lot of work and everything but I just have a question.

I found a yearling I like but he is a stallion. How much and when do you geld them? What exactly is the process? Im just wondering how an average or something on the price so I can add all that in on the price of the horse. Thank you

So I talked to my parents about buying him. They are being jerks about it. My dad is helping me pay for my horse stuff right now because i'm in high school, college, and working a job and just aren't making enough. I don't see what the difference between me having a horse and my sister having a horse, or me just having two horses (she is selling hers). but anyways he doesn't want me to have two. Its driving me crazy. and I don't have the money right now to have two and afford it by myself with all my other pets and stuff. Ugh frustrating!!

I have to agree with your Dad on this one.. You will not have time when you go to college for all this. And, that is most important.. There will be the rest of your life to do all this once your education in done.. study

Once you are educated and out there making your own way. It will all be up to you. You will think differently when it's all your responsibility to take care of yourself and the things you like to do.. horse

He sure is cute though! That makes it harder, when you already have one picked out and have your mind set on it. Why is your sister selling hers? I thought she just got her not long ago? Maybe Im thinking of someone else too...lol, I do that alot.

Yes he is a cutie!!

My sister never rides, her poor horse sits in the pasture all year just BEGGING for attention but she won't let me ride it or anything. I feel bad for it. So she has been riding a little bit now that it is spring, just getting her ready to sell I think. She isn't really interested in them anymore. She will just causually "forget" to feed them. WHO IN THIER RIGHT MIND DOES THAT?!? I have to text her every night and ask her if she did it, because i take care of them every morning. We both got our horses about a year ago now

You would be shocked at how many people put those animals last and forget or let them stand and wait for hours for food.. They shouldn't be allowed to have any kind of animal.. No

5 or 6 is not bad.. But, not feeding until 10pm is slacking and not caring about the animals...maybe she needs to wait until 10pm for her dinner? Evil or Very Mad Or, better yet no dinner cheers She needs to get a life and take care of the things she makes promises too.. That is what you do when you have animals.. Promis to take care of them.. Shocked

Yes exactly!!

I decided today not to go to school in Arizona.. hard decision but I think I'm just gonna stay and go to college here. I have also realized that even now when i'm in high school and in college im not having the time i want to be with my horse. I'm thinking about competing with him this summer, showing him off, and hopefully impress someone that wants him. I really love this horse a lot but Im not quite sure what to do?!

My experience, College was less busy than High School. You dont have all the ""Friend" things to do, all the after school stuff, nor the drama that you have in High School. Good luck with what ever you decide to do.
