So I Found This Amazing Horse

I was looking at horses for sale, as I do alot in my free time, and I found this pretty much amazing horse. From the add, it pretty much described the dream horse I've been looking for.

I've always dreamed of having a Palomino appaloosa since I saw a picture of one at a horse show. This one is just rediculously gorgeous. It is actually a Walkaloosa (from what the add says) which is awesome, because I've always wanted a gaited horse. (Some of the pictures of the horse walking looks rather like a gaited horse's steps from what I know.) It is in Upper Michican, which isn't far from where I live. I just freaking want this horse so bad, it's my dream and I've found him.

Thing is, I can't have him. Not really problem of finances, it's just my parents won't let me. (My mom sort of thinks it is just a joke and my father.. Well I'd have to catch him on a really good day and he'd still say no.) We already have two horses that still need some work. But of course, just like the dogs, my mother buys them untrained and expects me to train the animals I don't even want. Of course I wanted my gelding I have now, but our new mare was sort of against my will. She just wanted a horse so all of a sudden we took on another just like that.

I don't really want to pass this opportunity up. This seems like a once in a lifetime deal to find a horse like this, that is trained in Natural horsemanship and is that gorgeous. It's just like if I bought an even more gorgeous version of my gelding even a tad more trained. Plus has the body to be used in a more array of events.

I just wanted to know if there would be any way to go about getting this horse? I just wouldn't feel right if I let this pass by. I plan on working on my horses alot more over the summer, aswell as getting a job, or a couple jobs here an there. I would be able to pay for more of the horse-related things like feed, shots, and other expenses. I just would love to convince my mother that I could take on this horse. Sorry for the novel, I'm just sort of heart broken. And considering this horse is below a thousand dollars is just amazing.

(When I was about 9 I won an award on my soccer team for being most persistant. As long as this horse is for sale I will keep going at it. But I suppose an award that I got when I was 9 pretty much means nothing. -.-)

I am sorry of this sounds harsh but until you are paying for your own horses, you are darn lucky to have two. I can't imagine your wish of being persistent until you get your third.
Honestly this might sound rough, but if I were your parents, I would sell the two horses you have now as you don't seem to appreciate what you have.
Most girls would give their right arm for what you already have. I think you need to take a step back and be a little more grateful and appreciative of what you already have.

I would've LOVED my parents to buy my a saddle blanket, much less two horses already!! I have always paid for all of my horse stuff EVER, and at for a long while I didn't even own one.

I agree with AlexS, maybe you should appreciate what you already have, even though it may not be a pretty color.

But if you insist on getting this horse, maybe see if you can sell the ones you already have to get the palomino?

Good luck.

There'll always be another bus come along soon.

The good side is that if you can't get this "dream" horse, another dream horse will become available , they always do.

The bad side of this truism is that if you do get this horse, another dream horse may come along which you will want just as much.

I know the feeling. Trust me. I always say "But daaaaaad. He/she is PERFECT! I HAVE to have it!" And since I already have one horse (bought and paid for by myself) he usually advises against it. And another month or two down the line, I always find another "OMGZZ ITZ PERFECTTT" horse. I wouldn't be too down if you have to pass this one up. I promise you'll find another dream horse. :)

You should be happy with two horses. Some people don't even have one.

Could you sell one of your other horses - if this is your dream horse it shouldn't be a problem should it? How about offering to pay for it and then get a job to pay for it's care etc.

To me you already have TWO horses that need work... Until they are good why would you want to spend your time with yet another horse?

Right now you should be happy with the horses you have and accept that your parent don't want another horse and take the two you have as far as you can get them.

Trust me - you WILL find another 'dream' horse...Every time I let one pass another one even better soon shows up. Wait until you REALLY know what your 'dream' horse is.

The situation I'm in is sort of hard to explain. My mother gets animals all the time that I don't want to deal with. Of course I can't hate the animal, but she doesn't care for my opinion. I take care of the animals and end up being forced to train them. I am all of a sudden expected to take on these animals though I don't want to. I'm sure plenty of people would assume this is the dream, but I don't like having to constantly have animals everywhere when I'm the only who gets blamed for them. I get blamed if they act badly, so I have to train them, I get blamed for pretty much anything. >.> (I get yelled at for liking the animals after I protest against getting them.)

Just the other day my mother criticised me and told me that I should somehow fix Sadie (my mother's horse that she bought thinking it was trained, not the truth at all). It's rediculous, because I didn't really want the horse all that much. My hands were full with all the dogs and my gelding and to take on another horse would be alot. Of course, it doesn't matter because I am the child and because I live under their roof I have to take care of all of there stupid animals. It may just sound like I'm whinning alot, which I mostly am, but I am whinning the truth.

Trust me, if I had the choice to get sell Sadie and get this horse I would. I really would like to have horses that listen, and Sadie isn't really nessisarily my horse. But I'm the one who has to constantly be clobbered by her. I want to have a horse that would have a conformation good enough for shows, aswell. My gelding is a great boy, but he has a pretty long back for his size and can't do all that much. This horse is just everything I've been looking for. Perhaps it's not a good desicion, but if I ever want to get into the horse world I'd think it'd be good to start understanding things young.

I do plan on getting involved and more in with paying for stuff with the horses, getting a job and such over the summer. Maybe I'll have to wait untill then to have dreams. Or maybe even when I'm 18 and I can leave. And this has been the only horse I've seen for sale that was this perfect to what I've always wanted. A horse like this won't last very long on the market, I'm sure.

Put it this way, the grass is always greener on the other side.

I sold my first mare who was 15.3 grey, quiet as can be for what I thought was my dream horse (my current horse). When we brought him home he was a 17.3 lunatic who tried to buck me off whenever I rode him. Now he's great, but try to be happy with what you have. If you want this horse, sell the two your not happy with. I don't think anyone really wants to hear someone complain about having 2 horses when they want a third (sorry if that sounds mean). I know girls who would literally KILL to even lease a horse let alone own one.

I do cherish and love my own horse, which is my one and only true horse that I actually consider mine. Plus I never said I wasn't happy with both of them. (He was bought for me and trained by me.) I wouldn't sell him. The other horse is my mothers horse, I just take care of the both of them. Around where I live is more out in the country, so having horses or other animals is not uncommon. I take care of my horses, too. Some kids don't even know anything about their horses, like the feed and such, but said they would love to have one. A horse is more than just an object. I at least know what horses are about. Our 4H horse project is full of girls who know nothing about horses, but just like them, and don't have anything to do with the care of their horse. So when they want to ride the horse the horse is ready. It's pretty much just an ATV to them.

After reading this thread, I'm now glad I didn't just buy a horse for my daughter when she said she wanted one. What I did was find a horse ranch and asked them if she could volunteer on weekends so that she could see just how much work they are. And by the time summer comes around she will know more about them then just to ride them. Labor for lessons. I think it's a good trade. I already have my eye on a horse for her, but I will be waiting on pulling the trigger.
