A horse update:
Well, she is beautiful and she is in reasonable good shape, nothing that I could not fix up quickly with some good hay (her pasture is as sad as most locally), some care and she needs a good worming, she is the make and model I want, the age is right, the temperment is right, but the owner is a wee bit of a “fibber” if you ask me.. She may have been well broke at one time but its been awhile..
Now, I honestly don’t know how much time or ground work would need to be put into her but I expect not that much, she comes to be caught, she is beautiful on the halter/lead, she tacks up with no issues, she is good with different folks getting on and off.. but the riding part.. not so sure of herself, as in she needs work there in a big way..
She went from being the ideal horse (per what i was told) to a project horse that has alot of basic’s solid and needs both ground work and saddle work.. and trust me that means she no longer fits that very long list I have for the perfect horse, throw in that I really wanted a gelding so that I didn’t have to deal with heats or any possable wee ones, as Farmer T has a stud in her herd across the way.. and I am doing the iffy thing at the moment.
I think If I am being honest that if she was what I had been told, shown etc, I would have most likely brought her home and worked with her, now I really don’t know.. she might end up at Farmer T’s anyway, in which case, I might “borrow her” for a while and do some ground work daily with her for a bit and see what she is like and go from there..
I will keep you posted and share photo’s one way or the other..
