TOABH: Sugar Momma

Let's continue pretending that horse poop magically transforms into money instead of the other way.  So money doesn't matter.  If you could buy anything for your horse, what would you buy? 

I think I'd move Tango to Anne's and then buy a turnkey little...

I kid! I'd definitely move him somewhere that he could have daily turnout with another horse. He totally loves his stall (I mean it's actually a little alarming) but he does much better in work when I've allowed him to play. The problem with letting him play is that usually I need to work him right afterwards, when his adrenaline is all up and his heart is pounding and his entire attitude is, "but KAAATE I WANT TO PLAAAYYY". Not exactly dressage-oriented.

I'd also get him a custom fit saddle.

And an unlimited amount of grass hay. Like I'd just install this fancy system above his new stall where it'd scan the stall and the second there wasn't enough hay down there it'd throw him another flake.

Then after two months on said-unlimited-hay, I'd have the saddler totally redo the saddle because Mr. Tango would have packed on the pounds. Exactly the way I want it.

Look at how neglected he is! Full winter coat and shaggy mane and the whole nine yards.

    1. I know I'd have a fatty on my hands in no time. It'd be awesome.

  2. Let's ignore my posture in that photo

    1. It was just to show you where his hocks were, who cares about the posture!
