Hm, a QH judge and trainer once told me that it's never a mistake NOT to buy a horse--meaning it's a lot easier to get stuck with a horse you're not happy with than it is to find just the right one. Be patient and hang on to your money till you're really positive. It took me a couple of months to find my first horse who I never liked much and sold after a year and a half, and a year to find my Best Horse in the World Appy mare who I still have 20 years later.
don't worry, spiders, I keep house casually.
