    Buyer's Law

    Well, we all know Murphy's Law, I've come up with buyer's law....

    When you finally ARE ready to seriously look for a horse, the following ALWAYS happens:

    1. You want registered (to stay showing in your circuit)= all you can find are
    grade.

    2. You want a mare= everyone is selling geldings

    3. You NEED a gelding= EVERYTHING is mares.

    And these are KILLING me right now

    4. The ABSOLUTE tallest you can have is 14.2hh (and that's pushing it)=
    EVERY SINGLE FLIPPIN PERFECT PERSONALITY MATCH IS 15.0+hh

    5. When anything smaller than 15.0hh is automatically out the window= you
    can't find anything taller than 14hh.

    6. You've always looked for something to finish off= Everything was already
    trained.

    7. You need a finished horse (or at least the finished side of
    green)= Everything you come across that fits the height
    requirement, hasn't been touched in over 10 years!!!!

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME????

    Also when you aren't looking to buy, there is a gazillion horses that meet your every requirement for sale at bargain prices. Why is that I ask?
