I understand where you're coming from, but it's not like she's my only horse. I have two other horses.. My other mare is my main horse and who I am showing this year and doing very well on... I took Lark on as a project horse and am trying to bring her back around.. I don't see it as a "problem" or Lark as a problem horse, just as an issue that will get better with work and time. She's too good of a horse in other areas to just sell or trade...If anything else I know she's an amazing trail horse and babysitter, she also has great bloodlines, is a great mom, and has produced two great foals that are now being started and beginning their careers off great. ..So it's not like she's just "another horse", if she ends up not ever running barrels again, I know that I tried with her..and I plan on breeding her in the future because she IS proven, has the bloodlines, and has already shown that she produces really good offspring..
