Other than money, what would make your horse life simpler?
The answer that first came to mind would be a shorter commute, because driving to and from the barn sucks up valuable time that I'd rather spend with ponykins instead of on the road.
But reading through the other answers of this blog hop helps me to appreciate (a) that I have a dependable car, (b) that my commute isn't nearly as bad as others', and (c) that there will just never be enough time.
So my final answer to this question is that getting over my hesitation to spend money on horsey things would make my horse life simpler. My husband and I make good livings and we are very fortunate to have financial security. But for some reason I have this mental and emotional block from spending it on horsey things without analyzing the purchase to death first. Its especially burdensome regarding special one-time purchases, like our new Thinline pad which I had to think about for at least a month before buying.
Its just this weirdness that I have. I don't really know where it comes from or why it persists, but I do think that me feeling more okay with spending money on horsey purchases would make life simpler.
