Hello ladies and gents,
I have been looking into buying a new horse again. Sat down and still talking about it with the honey but looking seriously into doing this. I am going to look into it some more and think about what the options are and whats involved if I go back into that horse game again.
I do want your opinions on these 2 I have been looking at. Both of them are 5 year old geldings. Both are harness broke and have been used around the breeders farm as well as sleids during the winter. Neither of them have done parades or traffic tho. They are both papered and are around 17hh.
Tho I am waiting for more pictures here is the link to the 2 I was looking at. Wes and Jake, right now I am more interested in Jake. Wildwood Clydesdales - For Sale
I have owned a lot of babies which I have worked with, trained and sold. I owned a draft cross which I worked with as well as the 2 spotted drafts I also worked with then sold. I have never yet, owned a full draft.
My main concern, tho I think I have great skill with working and training babies from scratch, I have never had to deal with a 2,000lb animal who doesn't want to work or do whatever it is you ask him/her to do. I would like with time to turn him/her into a riding horse(mainly pleasure, maybe the odd fun show here and there).
What are your thoughts on this?
