I put 1000 miles on the car last weekend looking at 2 horses.
# 1 250 miles north in Iowa, selling as a driving horse, no cart, no harness, owner was going to try and borrow from the neighbor but didn't get around to it.
# 2 250 miles west in KC MO, 17.2 Hands, been everywhere, done everything horse. When I get there the only place to ride is up and down the gravel driveway or the road in front of the house, barn sour, like driving a Mac truck. They knew I was looking for an english horse, I brought my saddle but the only bit they had was a long shank curb. Oh and the horse was 16.1 hands.
