Hayley it IS HOT in AZ right now. I mean, when I rode her on Tuesday..the temp was what? Nearing 100 or so?
Would that be the reason she was so mellow? Just the temp?
I would have a Pre purchase exam done, but 1. Broke college kid+vet bill for something that's not wrong=even more broke kid.
She's beautiful. I keep getting replies to my wanted ad on craigslist, and Im going down to the Valley on saturday to a chicken show, and I might test ride a couple while Im down there. But they're just not...her. Ya know? I hate to be shallow, but she's FLASHY looking. And if she was conditioned, and registered with the APHA she'd be worth all of that $1800. But I don't have that much.
Would I look really insulting if I offered him like $975 and get laughed at? She needs miles to be put back on her.
Is it really unusual for a 5 year old that hasn't been ridden for a year to co operate that well when ridden? Is she unusual?
I snuck my litle sisters paint out this morning bareback (he ahsnt been ridden in a month...he's just sitting there rotting while she wont touch him...maybe I have a death wish) and even he had energy and was antsy after only a month. So why would this mare be so mellow and NOT WANT TO run?
