Checking out a horse tonight!! So nervous!! I'd love advice!

So i'm going tonight to check out my DREAM horse!! I'm in LOVE with TWH and I found one up online! He's a beautiful pinto ~ Bay and white. I have never been so in love with a horse I haven't met. Not just for his color, he's great with kids, he's HUGE and big boned. - I'm a larger girl so I need something big. Is trained western and is a big lover. Best of all he's FREE.

I know be careful with free horses etc. etc. I plan to get him vet checked. I'm just very nervous because the owner has a few other potentials and she'll be basing her decision on who can provide the best home and move him soon.

I guess I can't do much other than be myself? I'm just so nervous!!

Hope it works out, but caution you to be careful as just because owner says one thing, might not be that way.

And makes big difference too in who is handling horse and how. A perfectly sane, easy to handle horse, well trained, can turn into a monster with an owner or handler or rider that does not know what they are doing.

Pictures if can please.

Horses make me a better person.

I have been lucky in the two horses that were given to me. 2 purebred Arabians that came off the track. I got one in 2009 and had started competing in Endurance with her, We had finished our first one day 100 mile ride together and I was sooo proud of her when 2 weeks later she broke her leg in the pasture. I cried like a baby and still do. Then someone gave me her sister and of course I had to take cause she was Leyna's sister. She was not like Leyna at all! Leyna loved the endurance, you could just tell. Spoof does not have as much fun as Leyna did with it, so I gave her to a home with children. She loves children and is so layed back and takes everything in stride. They both were exceptional horses, temperment and conformation alike. Well I just hope you get as lucky as I was to have a free horse given to you with it being sane and sound. Good Luck!

Sorry I took so long to reply! It's been a busy few days!

Everything went G R E A T! I honestly feel so blessed to have found this horse. His name is Skyy he is a 12 year old TWH bay and white. He ground ties, lowers his head for the headstall - which is awesome because he's 17 hands! Built like a draft too! He's a biggggg boy! Won't walk off when you get on him. Lifts his feet at the slightest touch. He is so smooth and I am in love with his long strides. He's done everything even some light jumping for fun! He also free lunges by voice! I am seriously head over heels for this boy!



Bringing him home Wednesday!! :) Hahah pic is not of me! :P
