Sorry lyin' horse-tradin' so-n-so's ....

So, ask me how my day was.. lol.

I had a great time with my bff .. 3 hours to Dallas area .. talking laughing etc.

This dude TOTALLY thought we were going to pull up with a trailer, fall in love with something and buy buy buy .. boy was he wrong.

He TOTALLY mis-represented himself. We were VERY specific on what she was looking for .. color, breeding, sex .. he said he had several .. 750 to 1000. Well, he had ONE .. oh, and he was probably spoken for .. oh and he was 1500.

Wondered why we couldn't settle for a filly, or a different color, or bla bla bla ..

He had really nice horses .. but totally lied about having what we were looking for just to get us up there..

THen as we were leaving he had the nerve to ask me if I was still interested in the Arabian ..

Ahhh, nooooo... we came up her for a blue roan, hancock bred, quarter horse colt .. everything else would have been fluff..


If I didn't enjoy my bff's company so much, I would say it was a wasted day, but any day with her is a blessing.

Oh, and the beautiful Hancock bred stallion was EMACIATED .. and sporting a HUGE open wound on his hock .. made me sick.

Enough of that ..

CW .. I hope things work out with you and Belle .. I really really really do.

texasgal: what a disapointment. I hate when people are dishonest.
CW I will still send you this saddle I have if you cannot find one, but I think shipping to Canada may be more than it's worth. But the offer stands.

Rode Sophie tonight, she is coming right along! Ride number 13 or 14 and she is my girl!!

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

CW: Too bad i'm so far away, I have everything one needs to ride, groom, take care of booboo's, except for a horse lmao! Glad your getting some gear together to ride bell. Can't wait to see pics!

Hunter: you rock, koodos to you for helping CW out !!

Texasgal: ugh I hate when people do that! Thought he could get you to buy his fluff huh. Good for you for leaving empty handed, and at least you got to spend the day with your bff =)

Grace: good luck on finding the right bit, it might take a few tries but you'll get there =)

Texasgal - wow, I'm always so amazed at how dishonest people can be! And then to think he could pull a bait and switch on you, some nerve!!

Susan - Sophie sounds like she's doing wonderfully! (can you share your secret LOL)

CW - keeping my fingers crossed that you will soon be riding

Just got back from the barn, only had time to lunge tonight. She had high energy, wanted to canter and and started off not listening to me. So I made her halt over and over until she figured out that if she listened, she got to go. For the first time lunging I saw he licking her lips, so I am hoping she is starting to get an idea on who the leader here is LOL! So far I've just been the caregiver and the one who snuggles...

Grace, THANK YOU very much for posting those videos. I had spent some time reading up and looking at some videos on half halts, but those you posted are the best I have seen. I really appreciate you taking the time to look for them and post them.

That is wonderful CountryWoman! After all this time of waiting, can't wait to hear how your first ride is. Sounds like the saddle should work out, but if not, why don't you tell Belle's owner that for the time being, you'd love to volunteer and donate your time to working on the ground as you have been with Belle. Then once they provide the proper saddle, you would like to re-start up your lease? Hopefully it won't be an issue and the saddle you try Saturday will work.

Hey Chance and CoffeeMama! Very nice to meet you as well. I'm so glad I'm not alone at my age range and starting back up, Chance. You've been back to it for 3 years, me only 3 months. I have a lot to learn but am loving every moment of it and can't get enough horse time in!

Have had very little time to come on here and read much or say much in the last few days. But I read through last night. Will say more later when I can.

I'm on my way shortly to ride our potentially new Morgan/Standardbred gelding! My instructor is meeting me there so I will feel a lot more secure. I'm so excited about this. Hope he is half as wonderful for a beginner like me to ride as he is on the ground working with him.

The's not going to happen. I'm kind of relieved! The original owners of the mare caught wind of the current situation, and they have already taken her back!

I'll post pictures of him later. He is gorgeous!
