this weekend I sold my beautiful horse, Lady.
it was bittersweet to let her go but I just know it's what is best for me.
So I've looked at 2 horses since then... the first one was ok. Honestly he did everything he was supposed to do. The lady hadn't rode him in about 8 months. I hopped on him, took him out over their property, walked trotted loped backed spun... he did wonderfully.
So what's the problem? Well he wasn't really all that good looking. Is that bad of me?
Here he is, what do you guys think?
he pretty much meets all of my requirements but I think a part of me was hoping to find some dashingly beautiful horse with just as wonderful brains.
So this evening the hubs and I drove out and checked out gelding. I thought this might be fate. He is a bay, looks identical to my high school rodeo horse, and even had the same name... crazy right?
well... the girl got on him and was riding him first so that I could watch...
he bucked her straight off.
sorry, no thanks.
actually I did still make an offer on him but it was $400 less than she wanted and she wouldn't budge on price. Sorry my friend, after your horse bucked your little butt off you were lucky that I even gave you an offer!
Oh well. I'm waiting to hear back from one other owner but we'll see how that goes. After only 2 horses I'm already tired of driving.
So what do you think of the top horse?
15 years old, registered (not that I really care), and meets all of my requirements (except being drop dead gorgeous)
