lol

No its pretty much I tell them how I would want it and he agrees. But yesterday we changed our minds 3 times on hauling in that dirt, we went from going to do it, then not doing it (after calling everyone off) to we are going to do it ( so we had to call everyone back) in 3 hrs. he couldn't make his mind up.

It was just too good of a deal for this dirt to haul it in. I mean who else can load, haul and grade 1200 yards of dirt for 4K

Not a farm. It's a stable. That is the difference.

A farm actually has to be profitable at some point. A stable is never anything but a money pit.

Horse people are crazy. They'll go out and spend 50 grand on a truck they use 9 times a year.
