Potential buy

With our house move drawing ever closer it also means whiskey is getting moved again to a field with no pasture mates, and as a horse who has always had a pasture mate she gets lonely without one. So after talking to one of my friends who has several ponies she says she will happily sell me one of hers for "mates rates" The pony was 350, but i made her the offer of 300 and she's willing to accept. All i have to do is convince my mother as she will be contributing a quarter of the money, i understand why she is hesitant about it as the field we will be getting is still in need of a few touch ups (i.e the fencing needs checked over and i need to walk the field and check for potentially dangerous things. and i will be absent for approximately 4 months while i go to Romania then uni).

However on to what people want to see, the pony. (i did not take these photos)
Britney, she's a registered Welsh section A, 7 year old mare.
The reason i'm looking at her is something for my nephew to learn with. (i.e grooming and handling when he is old enough)

She looks lovely, I know my horses all love the ponies/miniatures as pasture mates. She looks cute, and if her temperament is nice, I say go for it.

We are going to go out and meet her in person hopefully next week or at the weekend. I really hope mother agrees as she is fully registered and i would like to try in hand showing and from what i've heard she seems to be really friendly.

My dads cousin told me he has a 7 year old mare for sale for 80 (and a few other ponys) We're going to go out to look at her at some point, however i think we are edging more this this pony as it's cheaper. However she hasn't had much handling which is why she is as cheap. Seeing as it'll be a few years before my nephew learns to ride it gives me a little project too work on as when we move i wont have any friends (not like i have many any ways) and i wont have anything to do and also she's the cheaper pasture mate option.
