    Apparently we're not the only ones that think he is great! Someone visited the breeding farm over the weekend, and offered my almost double what I paid to buy him off me. I haven't made the decision on if I'm going to sell or not, I looked for other appy colts that were black based and didn't see many I liked that would be worth it. Unfortuantly money is tight for me right now, so that may be a deciding factor, but I'm sleeping on it for a few days.. He won them over with his winning personality with their kids.

    I'm leaning towards saying no though. I just love his color and his personality, and that blue eye.. It'd be hard to find a replacement.

    WoW. If it was me, I wouldn't let him go. He's one of the finest colts I've ever seen.

    I don't know what you paid.. but i'd personally sell him if it was a large amount of money. He is young. You can always buy another later. I've got a few lifers with me but my young ones are always for sale for the right amount of money

    They pulled back their offer, they didn't expect to have to have him shipped so soon (He's 5 months.)

    I don't think I would have taken it, I did a quick search of other babies and horses and nothing had my attention.

    We moved his transport date to next week, I am excited!!

    Ugh, so excited.. He is on his way today! Should be arriving around midnight tonight (Kentucky to Maryland with a few pick-ups, drop offs in between.)

    It's going to be along day.

    Drifting .. when I had my mare delivered from Ohio .. it took them a few days with stops etc. I literally was sick to my stomach, snapping at everyone, and in tears during most of that time. I couldn't sleep, eat, rest until she was safe in her paddock.

    I understand the "it's going to be a long day" thing!

    Oh my god, time seems to drag on forever when you're waiting for a horse to come home without you hauling. It's a four hour drive one way for me to get my baby, but I'm sure time will slowly pass on the way there from all of my giddiness. Good luck jingles to your boy!

    Oh man, I don't know if I could handle a few days lol. I'm really hoping they make it here early. I don't know how many stops they have to make though. I know they're picking up a mare and foal, but not sure if they have anyone else they need to get.

    It's going to be hard to leave him alone once he gets in, I'll probably have my face pressed to the stall bars for an hour before I pry myself away and go home to sleep. Then in the morning I can take some pictures, take him on a little tour and turn him out to stretch his legs.

    Can't waittt.
