I'm sorry to hear that.. Owning a horse is not easy or cheap, lol, but it's truly a wonderful experience. Before I owned my own horse (and after, too) I looked for 'free lease' opportunities, where a horse owner asks to share costs of keeping a horse in exchange for shared riding time, or a complete lease arrangement where you are responsible for more costs, and ride the horse exclusively. Contracts like that need to be worked out very carefully, of course (make sure it's fair - that you are not lumped with ALL vet bills and other costs - may as well buy a horse, then..), but they can be almost as good as owning, and a great deal less expensive.

Some riding schools will swap riding time for stall cleaning, it's really worth asking. Spending time around stables is also a great way to find a free lease arrangement.

Talking My short list lol

I have a wish list of tarantula species to add to my current collection. I won't post details here because it's a bunch of scientific names.

I like the idea of an indoor terrarium with live plants. I'd want poison dart frogs or chameleons. Another option would be leopard geckos or other small lizards in a desert setup.

I will get another Chihuahua once my Greyhound passes away. He's a lot older than my existing Chi and the time will come, and I think it's better for her to have canine company. Other breeds of interest: Italian Greyhound, Chinese Crested, Whippet, Papillon

I want another Siamese cat. I currently "own" one named Rex but he has attached himself to my bf and lives at bf's house. If we were to break up I'd give him Rex and adopt another Siamese. Other cat breeds of interest: Sphynx, Cornish and Devon Rex, Balinese (long-hair Siamese), Burmese, Bengal, Serval.

I'd consider a ferret again (I've had two at different times in the past). They are playful, funny and intelligent. But - their waste is particularly smelly and their litter has to be changed pretty much every day to keep the smell down. It's been years since I had a ferret so maybe things like equipment have been changed to reflect this.

Fish: A big community tank. I like flashy tetras, gouramis, and many other kinds of fish. Might look into marine if I was getting a big tank. I'd like a brackish tank with puffers as well. This would be a smaller tank.

Cattitude, they actually have a natural product that eliminates ALL ferret odour.. I tried using it as an argument to get a ferret once (mom hates smelly things). I forget what the product is called, I'm sure you could find it. The only negative review for it I could find was one lady complaining that it gets rid of the ferret musk in their fur as well, and she loves that smell (crazy ferret lady). :D

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

If you could have any pet (within reason) -

- What would it be? And why do you want it? I would love to get back into horses. I used to train and show horses and it was my life. When I got Cancer I couldn't work with them any more. I rehomed a few and sadly my old girl (the love of my life) had a freak accident and had to be put to sleep. She was 24 years old and I had, had her since she was a wee baby. It broke my heart. Life changed for me in many ways at that time, and I have not been able to get back into horses but I pray every single day that a miracle will occur and I will be able to get back in and comfortably afford it. So far, nothing has happened to help me with that. I won't give up, if nothing else, I will be driving God nuts with my prayers.

I would also like a large fish tank. Maybe 300 gallons just to move my current fish in. I love the idea of them having much more room to swim in. I love a sparcely stocked, heavily planted tank. I prefer to think of my fish as being really really happy then worrying about what more I want to add to it.

Thirdly, I would like 2 or maybe 3 more dogs. I want one more male Rottie (show quality) 1 pet quality female Rottie and maybe a female Doberman (pet quality) Did I also mention a bit of land to enjoy all these lovely pets?
