Darn I was going to suggest a goat as a companion for him as I've heard that they do usually make good stable mates for horses. I totally understand simply not being able to afford another animal and being able to give it proper care. That's what I'm at with Zody, I'd love to get a kitten or young adult cat, but Zody is my vet bill and takes all my extra money, if I got a kitten and it needed vet care at the same time as Zody they'd both be short changed on care.

I hope that your boy starts to feel better and am so happy that Noodle is feeling well!

Oh I do have one idea... Would the pasture that Rileigh is in support another horse? If it would maybe someone would be willing to board their horse, pony, goat, etc. with y'all if it gets along with Rileigh.
thanks for your understanding & supportive reply, I do appreciate it.

we have 3 paddocks here (plus a 4-stall barn w/ 12'x24' attached runs), which we rotate especially when there's more than one horse, to keep the grass alive (it's a decent sized overall area, but our sandy hydrophobic FL "soil" has a really hard time holding on to grass) yes, hypothetically it could indeed handle another horse (I've had as many as 4 here at certain points)...
however -- my parents are both lawyers, and are simply not okay w/ taking on the liability of a boarder w/o having the proper commercial insurance policy & etc etc.
I definitely understand their point of view, and of course it's their property so it's entirely their decision when it comes down to it. but it is just a little frustrating sometimes...having a boarder would be such a win/win in theory -- I'd have more money to give Riles the care he needs, and he'd have companionship. and I have had people ask me about it, wanting to board here. it bums me out to always have to turn them down. =/
but hey, what can ya do?

I'm hoping to be able to get employed again here soon; and ideally be able to move Rileigh to whatever barn I end up working at...just gotta pull myself together and really jump on the job hunting I guess.
