I think she might just be lurking or something because I pmed her a few weeks ago and she responded super promptly... It was funny, I thought I saw her riding Solon (she boards Solon right near my church and I saw a lady riding a huge black horse) but it wasn't her. Haha random story!

Anyway, I think if you have the money for another horse, this girl looks like she could use the tlc you can give. =) If you do get her, just know that pictures will be in order.

I do have the $$ and have been looking for a second project horse but wasn't expecting it in the form of a Belgian. They (and Clydesdales) have been the kind of horse I've worshipped from afar lol. Could be awesome when she's packed on the pounds, my hubby wants to ride but there's no way he can ride CoCo or the other dainty tb/wb types 'round here.

Well, if it's any indication, she could balloon out to look like this with good feed.
(keep in mind, this is almost 4 months after baby and she is under consistent work). Big enough for hubby and his 3 friends. LOL

Hmmm... I think that might match my hubby... since he's like 5'9 and 230lbs. LMAO.

*sigh* this is not doing a good job of convincing me to not buy her.

Oh, is that what I was supposed to be doing?? Oops. LOL.

Although, if she is rideable or driveable at all and really has no health issues other than being half starved, 375 is a pretty **** good price. But then again, it all depends on whether she fits the bill of what you really want in a project or not. She would excel at trail riding and could probably benefit from some dressage training and could probably do some very low jumping (like 1 foot tall). She may not ever be good but it would still be pretty. Even if she was spooky, I know from personal experience that a horse that big is not quick enough on their feet to jump out from under anyone.

I couldn't imagine a Belgian jumping. Though in the brief googling I just did it seems they do. I can imagine dressage, what horse couldn't use a little basics?

At the very, very least, I know that I can take care of her, love her up, give her a good home.

*rubs hands together* hehehe, I almost have her talked into it.

Don't worry sweetie, helps coming.

Aussie, I have a good friend around the corner from me who uses draft horses to pull all kinds of wagons and clear fields. These horses actually WORK!! The most beautiful teams. All the picture of perfect horse health. He uses a vet and farrier in Indy. I will ask him who he uses and let you know. And yes, your stalls are big enough.

Thanks hon I appreciate it. I'm going to need the help. I am waiting for them to email me back again. Hopefully I can go get her today.
