I just spent the weekend looking at horses to buy which was very exciting! I went looking for a going TB or WB that wasn't too big or too young. After trying many duds I didn't find exactly what I had in mind but DID find the perfect horse! Her name is Breakfast at Tiffany's and she is a 5 year old WB mare, only 15.2h but the perfect size for me. She is VERY green still but has a great personality, a lot of spunk and definitely a lot of potential. We just mesh really well together. But now I'm in that horrible waiting period! Tomorrow she gets vetted and if there is nothing wrong with her then we have to start negotiating on her price. I'm really hoping we'll be able to get her price down (one factor that we're hoping might bring it down is her height) because I've already fallen in love with her!
But if worse comes to worse we do have a 2nd choice. A 16h, 4 year old TB gelding (ex racehorse). We don't know his full name (only that it's 'something Angel' or 'Angel something'). He is also super sweet with fairly good movement but is even greener then the mare!
Sorry for the slight rant but I had to share the exciting news with someone! And I would post pictures but I want to wait until something is more definite. So please keep your fingers crossed for me!
