Moving the horses....

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Ok, from a very very very anonymous reader (our policy: we never keep emails around!) who recently relocated from TN to Silicon Valley.

He got the predictable perks: paid closing costs, paid realtors fees (!!), an interest free loan from the company to help cover the housing difference ($600K), etc, etc.

The big question was what to do with the daughter's and wife's horses. Too old, really to travel in the family horse trailer all that way (it was summer), and out of band from a policy point of view to pay someone to haul 'em.

So he sold the horses in TN (really, Fetlock went to a farm in the country, yeah, that's the ticket) and bought new (nicer) ones in CA. He then expenses $14K or so under "misc" with an explanation that it was an "Equine equalization expense."

God, I love that.
