I would contact the owners and let them know there is some interest, maybe find out more about her. Free horses tend to get taken fast. Just a thought from the worst of the all the other enablers.

She's a beautiful girl, but I'd hold off until you get your financial situation in order. Unfortunately with animals we can't rely on money "working itself out"... Believe me I've been tempted more than once!

Ok, I will say, truly and honestly, that her hind end is not as good as Lacey's . She is camped out a bit. Otherwise, she's a goddess.

Back from ABN with her pedigree.

Egisis Arabian

Bottom side looks egyptian. Don't know what to make of the topside yet, though I see polish in there.

There's generally a really good reason why a horse is *FREE*. Are you prepared financially and skill-wise to deal with a horse that is bound to have either health or severe training issues?

Seriously though, I would take her. Even if you aren't financially prepared to keep two horses long-term, why not get her, put a few months of training on her (assuming you have the means to do so yourself), then flip her if you can't afford to keep her? I don't know how good the market is in your area, your financial situation or your costs per horse, but I know around here you could turn a small profit doing that with her, provided you didn't keep her around too long and rack up the feed bills. Granted, it would be quite a small profit, but even if you only get 100 or 200$ for her...that's 100 or 200$ and several months of experience you didn't have before.

Though, delfina makes a good point. Why is she free? Even if I had too many horses and had to downsize, I wouldn't start handing them out for nothing unless something was wrong with them and I wanted them GONE. Reading the ad, people always tend to downplay a horse's problems. So 'insecure' and 'likes other horses' could mean 'dangerously herdbound'. I'd really take a good look at her and get her checked by a vet if you were to take her.

Were you wanting a long-term horse to keep with Lacey? Or just a youngster as a project horse to work on then sell?

Sounds pretty flighty. If you can deal with that go get her before a charming kill buyer shows up.

Pinto, what happens if this young horse has an accident while she has it? Colics? Needs major hoof work? Worse yet, what if something happens to Lacey and the money for her treatment is eaten up by caring for this younger horse?

There are a ton of things that can go wrong with horses that can cost a lot of money. I've seen many many posts on this forum from people talking about being financially responsible horse owners and how you shouldn't get a horse if you're not financially set to take care of them if the worst happens. Not to mention the posts I've seen advising people against taking on a untrained project horse for the first time without a trainer helping you. Everything about this situation screams bad idea for Wallaby and Lacey.

Wallaby, I mean absolutely no offense by this post, I might be incorrect in my assumption that you haven't started a horse yet. I know you've worked through a lot of issues with Lacey, but starting a horse from the ground up is an entirely different situation.

:) I understand. Just weighing in with my opinion, is all. Of course Wallaby should do whatever she's financially suited to do.
