Well, it looks like I may be getting a horse of my own again very soon. Today I looked at a farmhouse for rent with a stable available right on the property. It's on about 30 acres of rideable land with a fenced-in pasture and longe ring. Even with feed and bedding it's cheaper than the downtown Milwaukee apartment I currently rent (plus heat and electricity are included at this place). Needless to say I'm pretty excited. If all goes well I plan to start doing some horse shopping soon.
I'll keep you posted.

That sounds like a bargain Dave. I have a barn, corral and lots of land around me, I can afford a horse but I'm a live-in caretaker to this 1832 homestead trust and there is too many cows about taking up everything so the trustees politely said no.

Thanks guys! I've been fortunate that I've been able to get some riding in using a borrowed horse, but it's just not the same. I miss the bonding and working with one of my own. I've been doing the "urban" thing for so long now that the idea of heading back into the Country is really appealing. Especially after last week when someone tried to steal my Pathfinder (only to wreck my ignition), and a I noticed a bullet hole in a store window down the block a couple weeks ago. Yikes.
