We just bought warmblood gelding named Eragon. He's the perfect fit, has great ground manners, I love him to death already!
Because I wasn't sure exactly what kind of bridle/bit to look for at the tack shop and what size his bit was supposed to be, I emailed the previous owner asking what kind of bit and what size she used for Eragon as well as what size bridle he used. Instead another lady emailed me back saying that the previous owner just sent my email to her and that I shouldn't be asking the previous owner any questions (????) She did tell me Eragon uses a loose snaffle and a pelham. She was the only one who could take 30 seconds to type that. And my trainer later told me the previous owner called her and scolded her for telling me to contact her. Which she didn't, it was my idea, so I felt worse.
Am I crazy to think that the previous owner might happen to know the fricken kind of bridle and bit she used on HER horse?
/rant lol for now. This is our first horse,so I feel like the last thing we need is to be shunned for asking simple questions, especially since my mom and I are running around trying to figure everything out(Note he is being boarded, so hay twice a day, automatic waterers,turn out, and mucking are covered, so technically his basic needs are being covered)
I still had a couple more questions, like if he had previously been on pelleted feed or grain, as I was going to start him on some as he needs to gain 150-200 lbs according to the vet. But I guess I won't bother asking because god forbid I don't know every last detail about a horse I've known for 3 weeks.
Ok im really ending my rant now, lol.
