Wow Jalter! Your baby would've been perfect for me in every way from what your ad says...up until about two months ago I was looking heavily, hoping to find a great horse for me by about August...as a returning intermediate-beginner, and looking for a healthy, good minded mount to trail ride and do some arena work/small jumping with, and to love, bottom line!
Very oddly and certainly frustratingly, things (stressors/drama, etc...) in my life have gotten really oddly "wonky" since starting my new nursing job (after leaving a job I'd been at for FIVE YEARS(!) where I worked five 8 hour shifts a week), precisely for the singular reason of choosing to have a job that would provide me with ample horse-time before becoming a horse-mom.
I now work 3 12° shifts, giving me four full horse-devoted days/week, with two days of mine while I'm working when DH can be at the barn, in my absence, doing all-manner of horsey things necessary.
Too bad that A) I wasn't aware of your needs to find a loving and safe home for your boy and B) that my life went and got all nutty for a bit, putting my horse-shopping aspirations on hold temporarily, because he seems literally perfect for my desires and needs and he's just beautiful to boot!
I'm TRULY SO happy for you and him that he's happy in his new home. If anything should change in the future, perhaps consider me as an option! :0) (I totally know this isn't the thread for this, but too confused re: how to switch it to the proper one...hoping y'all can forgive this indiscretion?)
Best!!! B2H <3
