Own a virtual horse? Maybe the next best thing!

I was doing some SEO work today to see how the site I built for my wife's "horse business"... (clearing my throat and sighing)... was doing.

Now, most who are involved in anything related to horses know the horse market collapsed before the real estate market did. The government in its wisdom destroyed the horse market and made it nearly impossible to sell a horse. But I Digress!

Knowing this, and knowing that my wife works too hard at real estate to make a go of the horse industry I decided to monetize the site and get paid by having people click on the Google AdSense ads. None the less, I still want to drive traffic there.

I came across several sites where you can have all of the fun of caring for horses you don't ride and feeding horses you don't ride with none of the related expenses. Gee, I wish we had thought of this several years ago!

www.avirtualhorse.com  , www.virtualhorseranch.com and www.howrse.com

All offer sites where you can train, ride, show and even your horse without ever having to muck a stall or clean your boots off. In-fact I was amazed at the number of those sites there are out there.

So if the wife or the daughter is begging you to get them a horse, just sign them up to one of the virtual horse sites and save yourself a lot of money and headache!

But remember if you do get talked into owning some horses call me for all your equestrian property needs.

Tried howrse it's okay but nothing like the real thing.  Not only are horses selling but neither are horse properties.  How's it in your part of the world?

This horse anti-slaughter bill and all the mess it created has caused many horse operations to go belly up. As a result many of them lost their homes and in many cases just left the horses behind.

Shelters are over-run, people have been turning horses loose in the wild and Bureau of Land Management has requested that congress grant them approval to euthanize thousands of wild horses.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, seems our politicians have created a pretty bleak future for horses, horse property and horse owners.
