That was nice of you to do that research for our OP, Painted - thank you.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

...keep looking. Doesn't sound like a trained horse to me.

I really have to agree with most others, that this horse is probably not a good idea. The situation just seems iffy to me... Good luck and I hope you find the right horse for you and your sister!

I know this is an old thread...but I just wanted to let you all know that my sister found a really nice horse! He is so sweet and calm. Hes kinda short...about 14. 2 hands but stocky! Nothing really gets him I think he's just what she needs. his name is Willy.

He is adorable. I prefer horses 14.2 or less myself. Looks like you guys made a great choice.
