    Haha those are good. We never had livestock growing up though I did my best to persuade my parents that we needed them. Anyway, I lucked out with a very understanding husband. He's very helpful too even though he doesn't get into animals like me. :love:

    Growing up in the city on what I thought was a extra large lot, I beg my parents for a horse /pony . I was also going to be a vet .When I was in the 6th grade I was told for every A I could go to the riding stable for a 1 hr trail ride . I got 5 . All dates as a teenager had to include a day date to the stable to ride . their expense of course. I only went out with my husband because he had a horse and as a divorced mom of 2 there was no longer extra money to go riding . 25 yrs later we are still together and not only is he understanding ,I could not do MY goats without him. When ever I need something built or fixed that he already built and my lil darling broke he jumps right to it . He also knows that our live revole around them . He is the best . So yes a understanding spouse is #1
    No I didn't make it to vet school but I have gotten pretty good at taking care of animals.
