    If she is up at night with hay and out in the day with grass, she should do great.

    As to the trailering-Many folks drive @ night when it's cooler, & there are calming pastes, etc. that can help w/a horse's nerves, & they usually settle down once they are under way. Remember, there are always problems to any solutions. We cannot see every variable to what we may think is a good solution. Trust & faith are a big part of life. I think a parent approaching BO might be a good idea, but you have done all the work so if your express your concern for Kenzie's well-being that could also win her over. I do hope for a positive outcome for all involved.

    I think if you just shell out $300 cash she will happily turn her over.

    If you need a hay source, let me know. I have a guy in Wharton who has THE greenest hay I have ever seen. He is one of the nicest people I've ever met, and has very reasonable prices for gorgeous hay. Last time I bought, it was $6.50 a bale for Tifton 85 hay that tested at 17.5% protein!!

    Well my update is that I'm angry with myself. I chickened out.

    My parents still haven't told me if they'll 'play along' and approach BO for me but it was looking like a 'No' so I told myself I'd ask today after the festival if BO was in a good mood. She wasn't in a good mood but it also wasn't terrible, and I put in a hard days work so I should have just asked her, but I didn't. I kept going 'what if she says no?!' in my head and psyched myself out. And it didn't help that she was completely surrounded by people who I find to be equally as scary (including her husband and her son. Her son hates me for some reason and I can definitely see him trying to convince her not to sell and say he wants her, not because he REALLY wants Kenzie but to disappoint me. And he rules the farm.) so I psyched myself out even more. I was waiting to get her alone or semi-alone and never did, so I lost my chance :/ Stupid. I have no excuse except that I'm scared to death of 'no'. What then?

    Now I'm just debating sucking it up and calling her in a little while, or waiting til Saturday face to face again...

    It's okay, don't beat yourself up. I'm equally scared of no, which is why I have yet to make the one phonecall that could answer all of my questions.

    Have a plan in place.. don't wing it!

    I think I'll call her later this evening, (they just went out to eat so I'll give them a few hours) and ask. I'm terrified of no but I'm also laying awake at night worrying. I just need to suck it up and get an answer.

    So I think I'll do it like her and word it something like this. "So I've been planning, saving, and thinking for a while and I was wondering what you thought about selling Badabing Badaboom (Kenzie...she's the only one who won't call her Kenzie. Not sure why) to me rather than having to spend time searching for a home with someone else? I've grown really attached to her since I spend so much time with her and she's SUCH a sweet little horse. I'm glad you guys took her in and gave her a chance. She has helped me in the past few months when I've gone through a lot of stress and family stuff so I think it would be really neat to own her." I don't know. Beating around the bush too much? I'm so worried I"ll word it wrong or something...

    Get cash out of the bank. Have it in your hand when you discuss it.

    Just sending you vibes... Hoping the BO sells Kenzie to you. Follow Celeste's advice -- have cash in hand. And give her some spiel like, "I've really fallen in love with Kenzie over the few months (however long it has been) that I have been taking care of her and I really would like to buy her." If you're standing there with a wad of money, it's hard to say no.

    Fingers crossed for you and Kenzie.
