When I started working for one of my friends, lunging her horses, I fell in love with the horse that was to become "my" horse (long story there) because he was a bright bay and that's my favorite color on a horse (other than a nice golden buckskin). When I told her that I loved Dakota because he was a bay, I got a nice long lecture about how you choose a horse based on temperament first, conformation second, and if you end up with a color you like, that's just a bonus. Well, I'd say with Aires I hit the freakin' JACKPOT! He's got everything! Temperament, conformation (every day our trainer finds some new body part of his that she's in love with...first it was his butt, then it was his shoulders, now it's his chest lol), AND amazing color.
As for the people who wanted to buy him...there's all sorts out there. Just like the people (fellow boarders, no less!) who tried to feed him coffee and were pestering my friend about who owns him because they wanted him. She finally said that she owned him and told them to go away. Lol
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
