She was a sweet and pretty thing, but not suited for my purpose.
Hopefully they still have him/her. He was very slender and built talk when he was younger--I hope he stayed that way. If he's not there, there was a gorgeous blue roan mare that looks like a stock breed. Plus many, many pintos. I just have to stray away from the stallions there, unless they are mannerly enough to be gelded and be fine and not studly.
Now if this belgian isn't there, I think I will look over all the horses in my height/age range, look over conformation and go from there. If they do in fact save horses from slaughter, I'm sure there may be some thoroughbreds and others. Just need to get their phone number and go from there! Posted via Mobile Device
