if what they say in the ad is true... she sounds like a real diamond in the rough. very exciting!
but the price tag of zero can be a bit disconcerting...

I'm torn!
Go see her, if you can. You won't know until you try. I sure hope it works out, because she is cute as a button.

Good luck!

She seems nice, she comes w/her papers, & there will probably be "issues". I've gotten 2 free horses-both because the horses needed a good home-the first horses owner had health issues & couldn't ride anymore, & the 2nd horse needed to not be a "therapy" horse, I guess. Anyway, both were sound & good riding horses for me. I would call, at least.

I completely and fully agree with the doubting posters (and the hopeful ones! haha).

Those doubts: what if she's "too much", what happens if Lacey and this other horse get injured badly around the same time (I have an "oops fund" enough for one horse, but 2?), why exactly is she free, she sounds spooky and I'm not a huge fan of spooky horses (I can deal with them but they aren't my favorite), her front hooves look mishapen - is she going to need extensive farrier work, etc, are basically what's keeping me from calling her owner right now and being like "I'll take her!".

My other major concern is what if something happens financially (I'm comfortably affording one horse with "enough" left over, right now) and I end up not being able to afford 2 horses, but in the time it takes to get down to one horse, I end up being unable to afford any horses.
That's kinda far fetched, but these things do happen and that wouldn't be fair to Lacey. It wouldn't be fair to "new horse" either but Lacey would be harder to rehome just from an age standpoint. Personally, I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I ended up having to put Lacey down or having to sell/rehome her to someone less savory because I got her twin on a whim.

And, to top it all off, like Tiger was saying, I've worked through some bad problems with Lacey but I've never actually started a horse. Also, I don't have a trainer around, that I trust, to help me. I think I could probably handle whatever BUT who wants to find out they can't to the detriment of themselves or the horse? Not me! haha

I think, unless my friend is like "YES! must get!" and really sweetens the deal for me, I'm gonna pass on her. It would be so much fun to have another horse, a Lacey twin, but probably not the smartest idea for me right now.

By the way, I appreciate all your excitement too! It would be so much fun to have a horse that darn cute and young! She really does sound like she's gonna be a real gem for the right person.

If it's meant to be, it'll happen. And if it's not meant to be, that just means there's a better horse for me down the road. :)

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Just come visit me Wallaby. You can ride all the youngsters you want...I've got a bratty coming 2 yo quarter pony filly with your name all over her

All joking aside, do your homework & think it through. If it's meant to be, it will happen. If not, it won't & you still have that sweet old lady to devote all of your time to.

That is the ugliest, finest boned, hammerheaded grade horse I've ever seen in my entire life. It makes Puddin' look like a golden girl!

and look at those shoulders. They aren't almost perfectly sloped at all. They look like teeter totters! And her feet look like toothpicks with bricks on the bottom.

She's obviously not suited to your cold weather up there. I mean come on. That fragile thing in the snow and...and...whatever other treacherous things there are? UHH-UH honey! No, I think she'd be much better off in flat old Texas.
