Always be aware of how much money they are going to cost you when you end up footing the bill solo.
    That's exactly why I'm thinking of it so early. I'm already scouting out what kind of money I'm looking at for the kind of horse I'm gonna want, who I can get to help transport, etc. I'm hoping to be able to work with an equine vet when I graduate from my vet tech program so hopefully that will help a little with vet bills!

    I guess you could call me a late bloomer. I went to horse camps as a child, but didn't get my first horse until I was 16.

    Here is my first horse and me, she's 25 years old now. This picture was from just a few days ago

    My first job was working at a horse stable, started when I was 15 years old. Never was around horses before that, besides petting zoos or pony rides. No longer working at the stable, but I now have 2 horses of my own.
    Why keep a snake? Why keep any animal? Because you enjoy the animal, find something beautiful and fascinating about it, and it fits seamlessly into your lifestyle.

    Re: Any other late bloomers out there?

    I grew up riding hunter jumpers thru my teens and early 20s. My riding days and owning a horse came to an end when I started college, then got married, then a career. Now some 20 plus years later I am back in the saddle again, this time switched to western riding and learning how to ride a reining horse. So I guess that makes me a really late re-bloomer.

    She's gorgeous! Looking good for her age I saw your pictures of her at your wedding, that's awesome!
