Well, back from horse shopping.....and that DUN deal is DONE
He's not the one for me........I played with him again on the ground, and he did what I asked, very willing to try.
But once on top, you can tell he hasn't been rode much or often.....again, with time and riding, he would be good to go, but I couldn't trust him out on our own. So no, no. My gut, literally, said NO! He made me nervous!
Now onto how I was treated....one, I don't think my guy was too happy that I wasn't buying him. (Tone of voice and cleaning up real fast). And kept saying a finished horse like want will COST me.....oh well, I'll wait!
I also think they think I am still twelve years old and know zero about riding ( like when I first started in horses YEARS ago)I got chastised for no breast collar, my boots were too wide, my stirrups were too short and uneven in length (I know that, my legs are different length and my back hurts otherwise....) Oh, and I guess was 'playing Pat Perelli!' With my natural horsemanship tricks.... The only thing I had right was my saddle!! I don't know....Ima bit POed
I believe I should be treated with respect...I'm the buyer!!!!! I have such a bad taste in my mouth right now! I've known these people forever, and know their personality is like that (pickers) but I am grown up now, and truly don't appreciate it!!!! I'm not 12 anymore!!!!!
Onward we go! I told,ya.....I'm learning to grow some cahunnas!!
Nearly a week into the steroids and skin treatments. I think she's itching less, but she still has bald spots...I ordered some topical antihistamine spray, and medicated shampoo to try too! I miss riding!
On a positive note....we leave tomorrow for the mountains and our annual ATV tour! Can't wait to get out of dodge. I took Monday off too, so a nice three day weekend!! Yah!
