The other horses don't mind the chickens. Annie seems to think they're like fluffy soccer balls. This horse thinks they're feathered demons. There are only like thirty chickens, but it was much like that. They chickens were out behind the barn and she rode the horse into the path and it came bolting out the other end of the barn with like fifteen of my hens, and no rider. I will admit I giggled.

Haha if you pay for shipping and quarantine then we'll talk :P There was a beautiful TB mare in Logan for $750 that I found myself drooling over...so...many...horses! And they're all TBs! I love TBs!

Fun question: what's your favourite breed and how much would you pay for one? For me it'd be a thoroughbred and no more than $5000.

oh my gosh, you have to admit stupidity can be VERY dangerous, but once you realize all is ok it can also be VERY entertaining!

Gilly, you and I are on the same page. TB for $5,000 is my ideal "diamond in the rough." My only hesitation is leg issues. I am hoping that I'll feel confident enough in my skills/abilities to one day have an OTTB to take cross country!

My favourite horse is my lesson OTTB, Chester. 13 years old, 15.2 chestnut gelding with four socks and a blaze. Gimme a Chester 2.0 and I'll pull out dad's cheque-book!

...

Do people even use cheque-books these days? :P

Mind if I squeeze in here? c:
I'll introduce myself first I guess! I'm Tay or la volpe [vól-pe or vol-pay]. I'm 20 years old and I'm from Alberta, Canada. I just recently sold my OTTB gelding and my mare was put to sleep at the end of February due to a leg injury. I took a little break from horses, but now I'm searching again c:



I only ever used my cheques for board and lessons too. Or to have my blades sharpened at work because I never carry cash on me, haha.

I don't think I ever used my check book. I know we had two days in like fourth grade where they taught us how to fill one out...

I'm Zoe (the username Zoe was taken...) and I'm 28. My username (Failbhe) is actually pronounced "FAL-uh-vuh" and it's an old Celtic name, meaning 'lively/spritely wolf-slayer'... seemed like a good username at the time, but I've gotten a lot of confusion - 'fail... huh??' Oh well. C'est la vie.

I just got a new horse this spring (Éowyn, a short but sassy little quarab). We mostly ride trails, bareback, and western pleasure.

Before buying Wyn I had a chance to go look at an OTTB... only $2000, and she was absolutely gorgeous. I seriously considered it but honestly, even though I'm pretty tall myself, I've always had smaller-to-mid size horses and she was a bit intimidating to me. I hope she went to a really good home.
