What is your goal with either mare? Why look at these mares?

I am looking for a reliable and fun mount just to plod around on. Why look at these girls, because they caught my eye, I like the basic build, and I may just be a little partial to a paint.

Okay, just curious as to your goals - I thought you were interested in a really well broke reiner? (Or well broke something?) If I can be 10000% honest, and not snarky in the least - will these mares add to your stress about having too many horses that aren't "the one"?

OK, a REALLY well broke reiner, yes I would probably love one, but the price tag will be out of my range.

These two are on my 'go see' list, because I think I'm going to get out and kiss a few frogs and see if any princes' pop up!

Just about every horse I have bought has had a compromise, a niggle, a something. So all I can say is I will know the right one when I find it, only to find it I gotta go ride some.

And yes that does include riding Hollywood again, and that was supposed to be today, but now Wednesday, seems like if I sell Cody and Wills, who are already listed, and *GULP* Ben, I would have enough money to buy her. But she will have a size question mark, so I need to either rule her in or out, and if I am not comfortable to ride her NOW, and I mean just get on and ride, then she will remain a lesson horse until she is sold.

What I want though is that feeling of being able to do ANYTHING on that horse, that is the missing link, and I don't know where I will find that again until I go try some.

First that I have heard you are selling some horses. Not that nice arab mare of yours. IMO she is a much better horse than either of the paints. Not just becuase she is an arab either.
Good luck in your search. Hope you are back to normal soon. Shalom

Oh no not the Arab, she is going for a months training, with a reining trainer but just to get 30 days if western basics on her, then she will be back.

My old Arab mare, Emmy's dam will never be sold, so there will always be two arabs in my life. I can't imagine not owning one now

I'd take the second one for reasons already mentioned (legs, pasterns).
I like Dad, too...but I seem to be partial to "beefy" since we ride two of them...Toby Turbo and Sassy Fatassy.
Happy plodding! Be careful what you wish for. You might get it! I bought Sassy a year ago so I would have a horse to mosey along with my husband's horse. Well, I got it. She couldn't outwalk a fat man. : ) But she's green so maybe there is hope...I hope! And I like her, so there you are.

That mare is nice. I can remember drooling over her. I know you are not interested in breeding that mare. However that one is one very good example of a mare that represents the breed very well.
If she was for sale I was going to inquire about her. Good luck with your search. If you were near Texas I have a couple of good QHs looking for a home still. Just want them to go to a good home. Shalom

Dustbunny, I won't be buying one that is too slow either, can't be doing with that, safe but not deadheaded, which is why I need to ride a few to find the right one.

Db, not so much not interested, as I keep resisting temptation to breed her

Now if you like her a lot, here is a thought for you, have a look here Grace Underfire AVF a full sister, I have been so tempted to buy her, but all the logic I have is I am an Ace hoarder. I know that the breeder preferred Grace there over my Emmy
