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. -.-)
