    sorry if i am off track but.....

    so if i am correct a guy called bruce has a tb for you?

    there are many bruce's in the racing world other than bruce watkins os it may or may not be his horse

    you would need to wait for them to get back in touch with you

    is it something straight off the track mate?

    glad to see your circumstances have changed (am assuming with the new job you scored ;) ) and you can afford a new horsey **) **)

    not being rude sva666 but when we was tlaking the other night you said you earnt 200 a fortnight? somehow i dont think this would be enough to look after a horse especially one coming straight from the track that will need training ect ect. maybe, as i suggested, you should save up a bit just incase something unexpected comes up ect?

    ok orginally i was getting from centrelink 190 a fornight... ok now i have a job i get 13.91 per hour but it is only casual work due to the fact its a catering place. I found out that centrelink is still paying me due to the fact that i dont earn enough and also ive been told im inderpendent so now im getting 350 a fortnight.

    Last week i earnt 140 odd for 2 days if im correct and that was about 11 hours or so... But seeming as it is getting closer to xmas there is alot more functions and ill be doing more hours which means i could get up to about 300 if im lucky from work... but seeming as im only casual centrelink is just keeping an eye on me so that im well on my feet and all that. seeming as my mother doesnt really support me as much as she is no longer a soul parent.

    Well i dont care really if you dont understand but i sure do, as its my life. Im sorry if i and saying stuff to the point of what i think but yeah... atleast im getting it out there and you guys may understand.

    Trust me i wouldnt be getting a horse if i didnt think i had enough money.

    Dont know how you do it. It costs me $170 a fortnight for 2 small ponies and that doesn't count farrier, vet, petrol going to and from stables and all the extra bits like rugs etc. Won't leave you much for yourself to pay your bills and living expenses. Good Luck:)

    look i give in on your quotes on expenses.... if i ever needed the money my boyfriend said he will help out which i have never asked him yet..... Why do you despite that i "cannot" look after a horse?

    we have no doubt you can look after a horse but money doesnt grow on trees and even you said your job is casual and unriliable and its all well and good for your bf to say he will help you but what happens when and if he needs something from the vets or something like that. we just all want you to be able to look after a horse finacianlly not just emotionally .

    I have full family support, most of my family loves horses and they know what they mean to me... me and my mum managed to pay for my tb's vet bill which was a tragic loss and i will never forget him. Anyhow that vet bill was over $2000. I paid byrons vet bill's and shoes and teeth.... if i ever think ill ever come into a position that i cant afford a horse i wouldnt dare buy one.... but anyhow..... enough said

    Definately wasn't saying that! Was just saying good on you for being able to do it, no way I could, I have family expenses as well though. Would love to be in the position to spend all my money (or most of it ) on my ponies:)
    And its great that you have support:)

    I know Romeo! My friend had adopted him from there for a couple of months in the very beginning in his worst state.

    Sorry just had to mention it :)
