Finally, I can afford my own horse!

I didn't even realize I was missing:
http://www.horseofmine.com/index.html

I've got to say, that comes close to taking the cake for wacky business models. Actually, I suppose they do this on top of breeding and stabling, but still, the idea that they're able to charge $100 to tack someone's name up on a stall and $5/month to stream video of it amazes me.

I found out about this from a friend who does a lot of this farm's dental work. Equine dentistry in itself probably sounds crazy to most people, but hayburners need a lot of calories, and they won't get it if their teeth bother them.

Is the horse steel, aluminum, or carbon fiber?

I think you sit in a chair by your computer and click. Not exactly a conventional riding style, I'd say.

I have a virtual bike you can own.

I'll put a sticker on it with your name. All you have to do is buy the feed and pay for the housing and overhead.
