    So excited! I 'got a horse'

    So today I went out to the ranch to help out and after we unsaddled and gave the horses special groceries the BO asked me if I was interested in having a 'project horse' and of course I said yes! The horse is named Copper and I will be able to retrain, ride and have my lessons on him! Im so happy. I will also get to ride him back up on the trail string so I don't have to switch horses all day. I also get my own saddle for him. On Tuesday im giving him a bath and I will take pictures! :)

    Fun! :)

    Is he "project horse" as in he has issues, and holes in training to be fixed? If so, do you know what specifically you are dealing with?

    He has really good training but was screwed up by people who let him get away with jigging and running off. I think the original kids who owned him always galloped him down the highway and messed him up. He also tries to pass the trail string. He just needs some time and love :)
    He's also parrot mouthed and he needs more weight and muscle, but he's getting hus teeth done soon

    Thanks :)
    Ok, he's a gelding, and all chestnut (I think, im bad with colors) and has no white on him at all. He also has a unique looking face and he's parrot mouthed so he's pretty thin right now. He also has no forelock and a short and choppy mane and thin tail, but im planning on giving him a good bath and soaking it in mane n tail conditioner. I don't know how old he is though.

    Hopefully the vet can give a good guess on age by the teeth when they are floated. Good luck and congrats!

    OP it sounds like you don't own this horse, you're just being given it to take care of and ride? Hopefully they're not sticking you with too many 'extra special' vet bills and groceries, along with the 'training' you get to do. Don't get me wrong, often times people will full lease by just paying for general care and upkeep, general vet etc. but are there a lot of extra expenses with this horse?

    no I don't own him but I will be the one to ride, groom, spend time with and train and I don't have to pay because I volunteer out there every Saturday and Sunday from 8 am- 5 pm and come for lessons on Tuesdays. She would tell ne if their were any bills/fees. And she's done this before with other people

    Alright, makes sense. The way you worded it just seemed like they were passing all the special groceries and vet work over to you.
