Wow I need both!

Going to look at a 12 yo solid paint tomorrow... Owner only wants a couple hundred for him. Of course someone is going to see him a half hour before me... Any bets on whether or not they'll take him?

If they see him a half hour before you, they should still be around when you walk in It takes more than a half hour to look at a horse, unless you are just tire-kicking.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

I have a feeling the owner will want him to go to the best home, and I can offer that for sure. She was excited that I want to get into dressage because that's what her plan was before she hurt her back.

That almost happened to me and my Cody. I posted on another forum about him and a person on the forum actually called befor I even got to look at him. She was going to drive down that weekend and get him. Lucky for me I got there first. If that happened here I'm sorry and that is very rude IMO .

I made it really easy, posting the videos and the day I'd be going down there. Oh well, I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Ok so... I might've emailed the trainer and told her I'd take him, provided he's sound and sane. I figure at that price, it's worth the gamble. Hopefully they'll just tell the other interested party he's sold.

I'm planning on keeping him at my trainer's for the foreseeable future. Going to do some dressage training with him. Cross your fingers for me... This might work out better than the first choice. Will update tomorrow, and hopefully post pics!

DAng.. I was hoping to hear that you were going to be bringing a boy home!! Well, maybe this one will fit you better..

IMO.. why would the schedule for you to see him.. THEN let someone else come before... YOU called first? Right? Maybe? So shouldnt the buyers been after you.. that's what I would do if I was selling a horse..
