So I've been texting a girl for over 2 hours talking to her about these horses. I texted her first for Lilly, and this is her ad. Beginner Safe Mare For Sale or FREE Lease Big, Beautiful, Beginner Safe Young Mare!
Lilly is a coming 4 yr old, started over fences, but now working on flat to improve her skills. The girl was very honest and we talked about her being on the bit vs. going swimming vs. vices, you name it. The girl said she bought her as a hunter prospect because she is smooth, and is more "woah than go" depending on if I like her jump, we may go towards eventing, dressage, or hunter's.
She then mentioned her other horse Go (All the Go) who would be able to be leased out to the right person. She is 6 yrs old, jumps 2'6" consistantly, has been to schooling xcountry and excelled.
Both horses are available for on farm lease, but both being an hour away would do no good, off farm lease, and as of right now, Lilly is available for "lease to buy"
Since I'm on mobile, I obviously can't add pictures, but as soon as I get home, I will.
Both have no visible conformation faults, and have no injuries from racing. Lilly had 4 shoes when she was brought home, and had them pulled and was sore for a few days. That was the only problem she had.
(As you can tell I'm supporting more info on Lilly rather than Go because Lilly was the focus on our convo)
I sent this text to a friend to help you with a comparison:
4 year old, bad ass brown, starting over fences, has jumped 2', hunter prospect, vs. dapple grey 6yr old, jumps 2'6 consistantly, been shown, pretty much finished...
And the funny thing is, Lilly will be turning 4 on leap year, which is when I turn 16. I'll never forget her birthday haha!
I told the girl I'd get back to her in the next week or so to come down and try both mares out.
From an outside perspective which would you rather have? I'm personally leaning towards Lilly because I was given more info on her, and was pulled into her first.
Pictures will be added tomorrow. Thank you!
Edit* I'm jumping 2'3" comfortably so the fence height does not have a big effect on me. I'd jump either of them at 18" if that was they could do! Posted via Mobile Device
