serious dilemma

I need some very serious suggestions. I have a serious dilemma and need your thoughts to help me sort through my options. Hears the scenario my boat is only 28 feet Sailing is possible even in the winter if you bundle up and carefully pick my days. Now hereís the kicker, Iím an old cowboy and dearly love my horse. Have any of you cursed with your horse, what size boat do I need if I decide to cruse with my horse and will there be any problems entering off shore ports? Also can someone suggest a dingy that would be suitable? I really would feel like a cad if I sold the horse, but a new set of sails do sound attractive. I am at my wits end on this one. If I ride the horse it takes away from my sailing time and I do so like to sail. HELP!!! HELP!HELP!!!!!

I've cursed my horse many times, so I got rid of him, traded for two bull dogs.

Dress the horse like a person and they will let you in! Would that be a dinghy with a 1 horsepower motor?

You know this is not serious. If it was, you would buy a power boat with all the accessories to help load and unload the horse, feed it and get rid of it's waste. This is a silly thread and I must be silly because I responded.

Just a little exercise to show the caliber of the question draws the same caliber of responses. The old adage ask a silly question get a silly answer.

Cortez Did it

I think Cortez pushed his horses over the side and let them swim to shore. Getting them back on board... using a block and tackle. No wait, didn't Cortez just burn his boat when he got there / here? Oh well its an idea...
What's life without humor?? thanks for the
