And then, he's got this yearling filly that he just wants to GIVE me. Because the baby that I got from hiom last year colicked, and he's just a nice guy like that. I'm like, that's super nice, but... I can't just take a horse from you! This is your business! Lol. But he showed her to me anyway, and she was alright, but thin, and potbellied, though that could just be from worms or just that stage in life. But she's cowhocked in back and her pasterns are long in the front and overall I just didn't like her. So after I talked myself out of that situation (which required some fast talking, you can be sure!), I decided, Hell, why not look at the babies? I'm digging myself a grave here anyway.
So, I headed over to the mares and foals. The first one that comes up to me is his brothers, and a full sister to the one of mine that colicked. I didn't really see a huge resemblance, and it's probably a good thing, because I almost cried just seeing the mother, and if the colt had looked like Flair, the poor guy would have been shocked at my tears LOL. But... I wanted a filly. And, as usual (weirdly, he always ends up with 2 colts and only one filly...) there was only one. I looked her over, and of course, she's the littlest one. But that's not always bad. She has pretty solid confo, and she was friendly. Considering she hasn't been touched, and she let me pet her, that's a huge testament to her disposition. Anyway, then this big palomino colt runs up and pegs her in the side, and I'm like... AWW! So I shoo him away and then she just stands there and lets me pet her and I'm in love. She's gorgeous. She's red roan and has 4 white feet, which is a down side for showing since I HATE cleaning them, lol, but they were immaculate, which is wierd considering we've had 2 feet of snow that just melted off and Her pasture was pretty muddy. It gave me hope, haha.
Soooo. I told him I'd consider my choices, and drove away, even though I'd already made up my mind. He's a sharp guy, lol. Yesterday he calls me up and asks me if I want him to start feeding her anything in particular before she leaves home. He's going to wean her these next two weeks, and then she's mine! That was so funny though, that he knows me well enough to see that I wanted her. I love da weanlings. They're just so EASY! And I've always gotten this connection with them that I have a hard time finding anywhere else. But anyway, sorry for the book....
I'M GETTING A BABY!!!!!!!!!!!! Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!
