Last week at the town dump, I found this in the swap area. I didn’t take it home because there’s an inherent flaw: It’s not big enough. As we all know, a horse fund needs to be a whole lot bigger to make any dent in the cost of buying or maintaining a horse.
When I was a kid I dreamed about buying a horse. I had one a bank — a piggy bank. I put my allowance in it religiously but even when I small, I knew that the chances of buying a “real” horse was somewhere between slim and none. Instead, my horse fund went toward the only obtainable horses in my reach — Breyers. I had quite a herd in my bedroom and we had many adventures, fueled by my imagination and countless Walter Farley books.
My horse fund has gotten larger over the years. What about yours?
