[QUOTE=smrobs;774508]I am so sorry that it didn't work out for you but I commend you for changing your mind and not taking her home anyway with delusions that you can cure her of every problem. QUOTE]
Thanks. It just confirmed my theory that the only ones people feel like parting with are the ones with..um...put nicely..issues
It was sorta like a nightmare..Watching this previously mellow mare go NUTS. I had a big envelope of cash in myhand...I had this vision of myself, in a hospital bed in a few weeks, in a full body cast. Or limping into my classes on crutches. I knew I would screw up her training too. I know that you can work one out of charging, etc, but I really would rather not buy something had this "i want you blood" glint in it's eyes, ya know?
Walking away, or rather, DRIVINGAWAY with the empty trailer was one of the toughest things I;ve done in a long time. But I knew I had to.
It also sucks because she is by far one of the MOST GORGEOUS paint I've seen in a very long time. Any horse I look at after this (and yes..the craiglist addicts are still responding to my ad) are just..well..quite frankly ugly after her. Not to be shallow. But why did it have to be the gorgeous one that was nuts? Oh well.
I'm learning horses are alot like my experience with guys: the ones that seem to good to be true ALWAYS are. And as soon as I commit to one things get ugly. Lolololol.
