Thanks Diegos mom. She is at Jims (the guys that's been helping me) trainers place and he has had her checked out with his vet and she is healthy recently had her teeth floated and feet done and dewormed. The current owner is an older lady that just has to many horses and she is downsizing. She is giving us the good deal because she knows Jim from shows and knows he is a good guy.

Congrats! That's so exciting! Hope it goes well when you see her, and be sure to post pictures!
Yours is really an example of why we should ask for things we want, because you never know where it might lead.

One word of caution, the arrangement you're looking at is not typical (with him buying the horse for you). Make sure you get your agreements in writing. As nice as everyone seems, you don't know him that well yet, and there are too many areas things could potentially go wrong. Protect yourself with a contract.
Some things to think about: what if the horse gets injured (or worse, killed) after he pays for the horse, but before you pay him? Who is paying board, feed, farrier, vet, wormer, etc? Are there any specific living arrangements (e.g. Does the horse have to remain on his property, or will you take it elsewhere)?

Thanks Shenandoa. We are going to put it in writting. The plan is she will be my horse at his place like I am boarding her. I will pay him $200 and that will include feed and stall. I will be responsable for vet bills if there are any and will have free access to her when I want and will be able to take her on trails when I want. Hopefully my lawyer will get my money soon and then I will bring her home if I do get her. It maybe tomorrow instead of today because Jim has to get hay after he gets home from work and is not sure if he will have time to do both things today.

Just wanted to give you guys an update. Jim went by and looked at the horse today with a load of hay on his truck and he went ahead and bought her because he liked her so much. He said if I don't like her he will just keep her because she is a really good horse and is worth way more than what I will be paying for her. He said he got on her bareback and rode her and she was awsome! He says she has spunk but is very well behaved. He said she is a red sorrel has white on one of her back legs and a blaze on her forehead. He will not be able to go pick her up for a couple days but as soon as I can I will get pictures for you guys.

Heres another update sorry still no pics we still have not had a chance to go pick her up but Jim does have her saddle and her papers. Her name is Tequila de Cuatro B her Dam is Inociencia Sin Falta and her sire is Plegaro de Banbaro. Tequila is my favorite drink on the rare occasions that I drink so I think we are meant to be together.

Amanda, a bosal is not a brand of bridle but a type of one. It works similar to a hackamore meaning it applies pressure to the nose and jaw of the horse rather then using a bit in his mouth.

My horse Bonnie goes in a bosal and I ride her everywhere in one.

Good luck with your new horse!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
