Well, I was back in the valley today, and went and saw two other horses I WAS "interested" in.
Horse 1.) Great bloodlines, but green broke and the owner wouldnt even saddle her (red flag red flag red flag)
Horse 2.) Not too much, just nothing special. The owner had only had her three weeks. Red flag red flag.
And neither of these other two horses were just special.
Went back and spied on Lakota (since I know where the boarding stable is now). Hehe. I know the owner is turkey hunting, and she hadnt been fed yet this evening..yet she was really mellow. As mellow as last time. And I know for CERTAIN no drugs were involved. And it was cooler out. And even though I didnt get to ride her today, from the ground she;s just as much an honest doll as she was on tuesday.
She came over and after being petted and ears pulled on and slapped all over (gently) wanted her butt scratched (Ive never seen a horse do this..lean into the panel so much they're literally off balance and pressed against the panel).
Also..she got attacked by a dog I guess when she was like 12 weeks old...So SHE HAS SEVERAL BIG, NASTY HUGE scars on her. One...on her shoulder..is in the shape of a "chicken foot". We found this ironic, because I love poultry, and have shown chickens in 4-H for a number of years and am a grand champion poultry showman. They say the chicken foot was a "sign" hahaa.
