I shouldn't have done it, I should have stayed off that darn site!

I shouldn't have done it, I should have stayed off that **** site!

I was instantly smitten with her, I love her coloring, she is such a pretty horse.

Then I saw this one:



And right now I am resisting the urge to go borrow a horse trailer and drive to Oregon and bring them home with me. Really really resisting.
