    What wonderful and ethical breeders to have picked "The Horse" for you and to also let you know they want her back if anything happens you can't keep Blossum.

    Proving once again, the old horsemen's adage that "ya can't ride the head and ya can't ride color"

    All my horses are some hue of red/brown. I've had Palominos, inky blue-blacks and loved them but, I have always gravitated toward the Red/brown family.

    Gosh, we can't wait to see pictures. WORK? There's that "W" word again --- always getting in the way of horse progress

    If you end up using a shipper, I would ask Mr. Stamper who he recommends; who knows he may even want to deliver Blossum himself. That would assure a safe delivery, plus give him a chance to scope out Blossum's new home

    So happy for you-& glad your saddle fiits her-that is major! Good to know that they want her back, too, if something should go wrong. Speaks volumes for her quality & their integrity.

    LOL I doubt it. She's still in Kentucky. I want to spend some time with her on the ground and riding in the round pen before I cut loose on the trails!

    Oh, she is pretty! Have arrangements been made to get her home yet?
        10-17-2012, 10:36 AM
    Ditto, she is really pretty ---- my kinda color!

    Technically (in my horse world anyway), she is considered a Sorrel because she has a flaxen mane and tail.

    If her mane and tail totally matched her body color, she would then be considered a red chestnut - lollol? I have one of each.

    Then there's my liver chestnut, and the "medium" bay Arab lollol

    That's a sweet face looking at the camera with one ear, while monitoring the dogs with the other ear

    I hope Blossum gets to you in the next week or two so you still have plenty of time to play outside.

    I know you work and we Fall Back to slow time November 4th. That's going to put the slams to some of your outdoor activities if you don't get off work until five or so

    Can you take early retirement??????
        10-17-2012, 02:12 PM
    Yes, she's a sorrel and no, I can't take early retirement. Feb. 15 is my absolutely last day at work. October 15 was exactly 4 mo. Since my accident on July 15. And guess what?...only 4 mo. Till retirement. I can't believe it's been 4 mo. Since I wiped out...and the next 4 months will go even faster with all the holidays! I'm really getting a bad short-timer attitude.

    The vet I hired to do the vet check called today. I'm soooo wired. She's fine. She has the constitution of an ox and she's about 75-100 lbs. Overweight from living in a 250 acre pasture with absolutely no work. She's conformationally correct for her breed, no flaws. HE RODE HER!
    I was amazed - what vet does that???!! He hopped on her bareback with a leadrope hooked to her halter!!! She's very square and has a really nice gait. He said she was absolutely perfect for what I wanted, and was a really nice mare. He's sending the report to me by email.

    She will need her teeth floated in the near future, and she needs her feet trimmed. (There are a few small cracks that the trimming will fix.) She's been barefoot for a long time and her feet are wonderful. With regular riding, the weight should disappear, BUT....she's been a brood mare and she'll never be "show perfect." I know exactly what he means...I've had kids! ROFL I'm not looking for show...I'm looking for a safe, sane trail horse.

    Paperwork will be ready for her to leave home the first of next week. Still not sure how she's going to get here, but I am SO impatient!!! I want her here!! Vernon told me he had no intention of selling her and I believe him. He had pictures of all the other horses he was selling with him at the show but not hers. She isn't even on his web page! She was a brood mare...we had to pull a coggins on her because she wasn't going anywhere --- until he talked with me and thought about how perfect she would be for me. Then when I came out and rode her...and she followed me around afterward, he knew she liked me. She's only ever done that with him and the girls who played with her when she was being ridden. She will have a good home and I think I've found my heart horse. I'm so excited that work is really being neglected.
