    I see no problem with it since you seem to know what you are getting into. I hope she makes you a very nice little companion horse.

    As for the poster that talked about breeding a valueless horse? Not necessarily. If a foal is born out of 2 winning parents and has winning brothers and sisters but suffers an injury during their youth that makes them unsound for riding, it isn't such a bad thing to breed them if they can physically stand it. I have a very good friend who owns a stud out of Doc O'Lena and Gays Sugar Doll. Very good parents who both either won good money themselves or their offspring was money earners. Unfortunately, Fajita suffered a leg injury as a foal that made it impossible to ride him. He was used strictly as a breeding stud and has sired at least 23 money earners plus many priceless ranch horses.

    Anyway, back on point. Tasia, I hope it all works out for you and if you get her, I want to see some pix of her 'homely' self.

    She is a cutie pie!!
    I hope you decide to take her.... So many horses are never even given a chance, it's so sad!! I think, if you take her, you start an emergency account or something and put money in it every week or something in case she needs some sort of treatment in the future.... Just so you'll be prepared!!

    I really hope you decide to give her a chance!!! God bless both of yall!!
