What do you think of him? 4 months old and bought for $60. He's registerable but haven't looked at the bloodlines yet.

ETA: having difficulties getting photos with my phone. Will try again later.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

He's cute!

$60 for a horse? That's either a typo, or a going out of business kind of sale! :p

What are you hoping to do with him?

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

$60 and no typo. Got him at an auction at the Cowboy Up Ride Against Cancer. Proceeds went to helping victims and families to help cover costs that insurance doesn't cover.

I'm not sure what he's going to do yet. He's got some long legs tho. Maybe a jumper a friend said to us but she likes to jump with all horses. Mainly we just trail ride, so for sure he'll do that.

I was hoping he was a filly but oh well. We talked to the owner and he did have some fillies but he wanted $500 for them. The fillies hadn't been weaned or halter broke yet.

He has a sweet temperament but does have attitude. He lets me touch him anywhere, even checking to see if he's dropped. He lets me pick up his hooves and gives to pressure (to the side) on the halter pretty easily. When we loaded him, he wasn't sure but leaped in like a deer!

He's nice looking boy, especially considering how much you paid for him.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks. Couldn't pass up a deal like that. The only name I can remember in his bloodlines is Sonny Dee.
