Here's a blog post on the theme of 'Horses are expensive'.
Shocking I know.
When I was looking at properties with the aim of bringing Irish home my real estate agent asked me if I was looking to run a lesson or boarding barn. My answer was a resounding 'no'.
|I still make the same expression, just not as cute|
Well, do you know how to make a million dollars with horses? I asked
'No' he said looking intrigued.
'Start with 2 million' I deadpanned.
He looked at me and then started to laugh. Ed looked worried though.
Fast forward and I have my horses at home. I love it. It likely saves me some money.
Spring is really hard on the bank account. There's vaccines, teeth floating, memberships etc.
|this is how Ed deals with this time of year|
|not fancy wheels, but mine|
All in all, there are a lot of costs that all happen in spring that can make it seem that the money is flying out faster then it is coming in.
I would consider that we fit pretty solidly in the middle class. Which means that I do have some discretionary income.
But I'm not a bottomless pit.
Sometimes that means I have to make choices. I don't weigh things based purely on price but, I can't do everything.
And I'm pretty much okay with it.
Although I wouldn't mind having more money, I'm pretty happy with the things I have. And what would I spend my money on anyway? Clothes? Travel? Fancy homes?
