It's a Lifestyle thing. I am thinking of starting a new horse club called HAA ( Horse Addiction Anonymous). When ever one of us goes to buy more horses or horse stuff than we need(or can afford) we call another member who talks us out of it. If they can't talk us out of it they go with us to see if it really is a good deal. :-)

Hook(ed)......on Horses

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

ROFLOL! You guys are a riot!

Hook, I hate to tell you this but there's already an association with those initials... the Hoosier Appaloosa Association, fondly known as the "Ha Ha" Appaloosa Regional.

As for my horse addiction... purchasing new things is no problem for me, since I can't afford most of it to begin with. So, I just go into tack shops and drool all over the neat, expensive stuff before going to TSC to pick up some wormers, or a brush, or some fly spray, or whatever doesn't break the bank... and in my case, it wouldn't take much!

I'm afraid HAA wouldn't work for me either. I don't think a horsey person can talk another horsey person out of wanting another horse, a new saddle, blanket, bridle, bit or anything else horse related!

Right now, I'm wrestling with reasons NOT to look for a second horse. The reasons not to far out weigh the reasons to but I still WANT another horse!

So let this be your first test, Hook. Talk me out of wanting a second horse. Give it your best shot!

LOL, what a good laugh this provided. Hook, I have to agree with ST that you would be the very worst person to try to talk someone out of another horse or more tack...!!!!

I am like RH, pretty much held in check by having reached my limit on how many horses I can afford...still doesn't keep me from getting ideas sometimes though, I have to admit!

Having to board out my horse, I am limited to just having one. However, having said this, I often say that 'when I get my own place I'll buy a couple more horses.'

The best rule of thumb is to make sure you only have as many as you can comfortably care for. I'm sure that quite a few folks who have animals taken away from them because of 'abuse' (read 'malnourished, etc.') had the best of intentions when they kept adding to their fold.

Appygirl.....isn't that called "hoarding"? I've seen the term used on different forums with cats and dogs.

I keep trying to tell myself that I won't get another until the old guy is gone....and so far it works for the most part. I still look, but with a very critical eye, and a trainer who is instructed to talk me out of every horse that I show her! rofl

I get to be Member #1 and President of HAA until we get enough members to have a vote.

Founding Members and Honorary Vice Presidents and Directors in order of sign-up.
1. beccajane - cause she was first and we need to go together to see things, she can be Vice-President responsible for scouting out new horses & things so we will be able to council our members more effectively
2. appygirl – confirmed horse addict for 44 years, qualified to be Second- Vice President in charge of confessions
3. saddle tramp - obviously needs the services of HAA badly – Director of Acquisitions
4. Red Hawk – has her habit under control – Director of Public Relations. Now I have to call the club DE HAA
5. Flooper – has made the first step – admission of addiction – Second Director of Confessions
6. Paintgal – an immediate need here, we will have to work hard on this one – Director of Restraint. Don’t buy another horse, PLEASE. I bought a second horse to join my wife’s after we were married and now look – 9 Ύ horses in an 8 stall barn – DON’T DO IT.
7. EZ2SPOT – recovered but waivering – Director of Rehabilitation
8. jacobsbuddy – obviously under the influence of the desire for horses – Director of Recruitment – has friends that could make use of the services of DE HAA

As President I would like to assign to each of you the task of reviewing your new responsibilities and advise the club of your progress.

As Vice-President of this organization, my first duty is to find a second horse for Paintgal and take Hook with me, in case they have 2. Then we call appygirl to confess our "wrong" doing (HAA), who sends a memo to Red Hawk. From there we call saddletramp, Director of Acquisitions, to somehow find funds to purchase said horse(s). THEN, after said purchase(s), we call weekly meetings with Flooper and EZ2SPOT to prevent future purchases. Jacobsbuddy comes to the meetings, bringing more horse crazy people! WHEW!! Sounds like a full time job to me! How much does this job pay? It doesn't matter....

I happen to know this guy who has some quality horses for sale, reasonably priced, well-broke.............................
