Smooth Colored Beauty - New APHA mare!

Well, after the entire traumatic experience I was talking to my friends about how heartbroken I was, but also how I did need a second horse in general so I guess I had to start looking all over again.

I don't wanna sound like "Oh she's dead, time for a new one!" I spoke to the vets repeatedly, I spent nights up administering fluids to her thru IV tubes, and did everything I possibly could and I completely accept that and can move on accordingly.

Well a friend I had met on facebook asked me if I was still interested in her mare. I had found her mare on craigslist originally but she was WAY outta my price range. Then I found the girl on facebook (via the same picture on the APHA group page) and we started talking and became pretty good friends.

So after Liberty died she brought up me buying Gypsy (Smooth Colored Beauty) her 5 y/o 15hh Bay/White APHA mare. The best part is she lowered the price considerably and is allowing payments. She's even trailering her to me from 5 hrs away with no qualms. I'm super excited since the mare is broke (fresh from the trainers) and is a very pretty girl.

So, what do you guys think?
Here she is!

Her as a 3 year old:

Face shot - 2 blue eyes!

Right side:

Trail time!

And ones from at the trainers:

And of course, my favorite lol:

Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!

She was actually my top choice had money not been a factor in the first place, but she was priced over 2000 more than Liberty so the decision was pretty simple. However she is current on farrier, all vaccines, floated, loads/clips/saddles, trail rides, crosses water/creeks/leads/follows, is easy to catch, and an easy keeper. I couldn't pass her up twice!

Yea she was in FL at that time. She pulled the ad to put her into training and ten put her for sale again. Then decided not to sell her since she's being soooo good! But I got lucky n convinced her! :)
