    Back to women's brains. My wife said she needed some new hay nets for her horses, as the old ones had holes in them, then couldn't understand why I thought it was rather amusing. Made my own tea that day.

    Looks like you'll have to supply your own evening "entertainment" as well it seems.

    Yes. Bad enough with vets bills on a couple of dogs and cats. Dread to think what a horse costs.:confused:

    Well I keep walking in circles, having only one arm and a leg! For 3 horses £1000 for the year's supply of haulage, another £1000 for the farrier, probably another grand for other feed, jabs, dentist etc. then we start on the rides! Travel all over the country doing long distance riding. Been trying to get her to get a goldfish instead, but no luck so far.

    Back in the 90s was married and we bought a horse and a pony for the wife and kids.
    Including the £2000 for the horse and the £500 for the pony, first year costs were about £20,000.

    Horses are not the brightest of animals , can eat stuff that does them no good , but then we just pop to the supermarket
    so our "Forraging skills are in decline" .
    --Best stock up with pot nooldle--
    Probably about that time of year ,for me to slip up !

    Did anyone know, horses have to have coats for when they are out in a field and it’s cold?
    In fact they need two, one to change into if the other gets dirty or wet.
    They also need two saddles, one leather for when it’s dry and the other synthetic for when it’s raining.
    I won’t mention the rubber booties to protect the horseshoes when they are being ridden on the road.

    So, from what you are saying owning a horse is cheaper then getting married, less shoes and handbags and you get to ride them more often.

    Bloody hell what were you feeding them? I reckon our 3 cost about 6 to 7 k per year, including haylage, feed, shoeing, vets, dentist, getting muck heap shifted and going to about 10 rides, nearest is 200 mile round trip.

    Just an aside, a hole in a net usually results in the net containing fewer holes than it had before. There's one for you to think about.

    look at the american divorce set u where you have to pay maintenance to an ex spouse even when you have no children together!

    men expected to to give the same lifestyle to their ex, even if a man loses his job if he doesnt make those payments off to jail he goes.

    Quick question : If a guy falls behind
    With his maint payments is it possible
    For his ex missus to re- possess him ?
    Frightening thought for the day
