There is a business called Horsefeathers already, that's the only thing I'd consider changing about your plan :)
I am in your boat for the most part. I have only my dog and BF pretty much and 2 other friends, but with the 1st we can't do things together cus she is too busy being into herself and her life and the other lives close to where I live with my BF but she doesn't drive and lives at home and her mom keeps her on a tight leash. I am almost 23 and I am so upset that I couldn't finish my degree by now like everyone else, bu I wasn't mature enough till now, but it totally kills me. I am going to be finishing my degree in Wildlife Biology when I am either 26-27 and I feel so set back :(. If you want anytime, PM me and I can even get you my email to chat. I am a fellow animal/horse nut and miss riding :P but I am broke. we are actually rather alike in how we are both feeling lately, so you're not alone!
