    Sadly, no... Noah is going to his new home on Saturday. As he gained weight and got healthy, his pushy, dominant personality came out. He wasn't exactly Mr. Polite on the ground. Actually knocked me on my butt the other night as I was trying to clean a cut on his hip. I don't think he was happy being my "pet". He's used to being a trail/work horse, not riding around in a ring & being loved. His new owners do natural horsemanship, which seems to catch his attention, and want him for hubby trail rides. He'll be happier... :(

    Yeah. Alot of trail horses like that arent always worked with and can get nasty habbits from being around inexperienced kids. That's good you got him a home, and understand his needs. I have a friend with four horses like that... I don't think she's brushed them this year, not once, but she always manages to find people to take care of them for her. Have you looked on dream horse at all?

    When my first horse died in 2004 I rushed out to get another one. I settled on my mare, who I knew wasnt right, but I just wanted another horse bad. She has developed hoof/navicular problems. So I try not to jump right in anymore, althought its tempting to third horse. So just becareful when you look, don't get too attached because you may find problems that make them unsuitabe. (but you probably already know that.)
