I must admit I really like the look of the dun. From what you say so far he seems to be a worthwhile prospect. I would agree with waiting to look at the other ranch horses to see if you can find a horse with the same level of comfort for you in your comfortable price range.
Well wanted to say, I worked my mare today on ground work. Boy what a job! She is just bigggggggggggggg and it is like telling a wall to move. She sure does get stuff quickly tho and if she was finished she has to know what I am asking of her. I blame it on 6 years off. Gah! Anyway, rubbed the rope and whip all over her, had her give to pressure (major pushes) on her shoulder, hind, backing. Stopping when being led. Did some lunging in the round pen but had her on the line for more control of where her head went. She did well but she needs work. Buttttttttttttttt................ I did it!!!! Yay me!
Wow things move quickly around here. Great pictures Roaddy!
Here is our trailer as old as it is. Everyone else at barn has nice angle hauls and we have to park ours hidden behind he barn lol. BUT I know ours is safe. Hubby has redone wiring, floors etc and is anal about greasing the wheels etc. The one thing I do love is the walk through. If I am just loading Hunter I walk around the pole but add a second horse and boom just walk right through. IMG_0831.jpg
