Possible Buys

Alright so I am trying my absolute hardest to convince my mom to get another horse. She wants to also but its a money thing. So if I can find a young horse worth it I can somehow convince her t get one. But I want him or her to be worth it. So what do you think of these young horses.

2010 Sweetpea x Peacetime
2010 Simba x Peacetime
2010 Tequila x Peacetime
2010 Brandi x Peacetime

My favorite is the first one by the way.

I'm not a huge fan of draft crosses myself, but that may be more of a personal tastes thing.

What would you be planning on using this horse for? Have you got the time and resources to bring up a greenie? Will buying a new horse make it more difficult for you to give your current horses all of the care, attention, and training they need to excel?

I could convince my mom to get me another horse too... but there's so much that makes it impractical. So for now we just ooh and aah at all the pretty ponies we would bring home if only if only. If only we won the lottery, if only we owned acreage, if only I didn't attend full time university.

If it's a money thing, are you sure it's smart to get another horse? (Meant in the politest way possible!)

I love draft crosses, myself! I like Tequila x Peacetime, but they're all pretty cute. What are you planning to do with the foal?

While I like draft crosses, I feel they are 'trendy' and may fall out of fashion. My problem is actually with the site that you are looking at. While all the horses seem well cared for...I dont like a stable that openly breeds for color. Sorry if that offends anyone. I love different colored horses, but not as much as I love well bred horses.

I am planning on using them for 3-Day Eventing. We own an acreage so we have a place for them and everything. I do have the resources and time to bring up a greenie and no it won't take away from my time with my current horses. One we are selling once I put another few months on him, the other is 17 and I'd prefer to retire him sooner rather then later as he has been coming up lame lately. So what do you think about conformation and all that stuff.
