How many of you have a horse that was given to you for free? Not one that was advertised as "free" and you picked up, but one where the owner approached you about the horse and said that you could have it.
That's how I got my TB mare, Daisy. One day my trainer came up and said "Melanie, I have too many horses, you can have Daisy if you want a companion for Beau."
Then today at work one of the guys in our finance office asked if I wanted one of his TBs. He has 6 that race and 2 aren't doing very well and he wants to find new homes/jobs for them. He said to come take a look at them and if I like them/one, I can take them/one for free.
Does this happen to you guys alot?
I can't take one of his TBs, unfortunately, we already have a full barn. But I wish I could - sounds like a good project!
