Yeah; this was about 5 years ago, before I knew much about horses (and, at the time, I was underaged, so I needed my mother's help with things), so I really didn't know what I had a chance to get, haha!
It was a registered, beautiful mare, probably worth $20k at the time; we were talking to the woman who owned her in a feed store, and mentioned we'd like to get back into horses, and the woman said she couldn't afford to move her two horses to Florida with her and offered to give them to us. We took her up on the offer, and said we'd pick them up in a few days.
We called her and found out she'd gone ahead and given them to her brother. Should've gone and gotten them that night, when we first met her.
Oh well. :(
