This is my mini rant about a few things that have been irritating me.
First in November I bought a 4 year old colt, barrel prospect he's big, he's a tank, bred great, mom was a 1D barrel and pole horse, dad also a proven horse. Lady at my barn says he looks more like a roping horse, then a few weeks ago was talking about how some horse couldn't run barrels because he was built like a roper. My colt ran 3.5 seconds off the fastest time at his first show, IBRA show... second I sold my barrel mare or am in the process of selling. To a girl whose 11 that I've helped alot. I lowered her price a bit and am selling on payments because I want her to go to them. My mare is broke to death and easy to ride, but she's not avery dead head she hasis some spunk. Girl gets along fine with her and can ride her perfectly fine. She's ran her a few times now, the mare takes care of her but she's not a baby sitter. The girl is coming off her baby sitter horse who is so so at barrels, to my automatic barrel mare. The first time she ever rode her a guy who comes to shows alot his granddaughter runs, they breed and train horses, buy an sell. Talks to the grandmother of this girl who is the one paying for the horse, asking is she's buying my mare, then telling her he just sold a horse who would have been perfect for the girl, short stocky horse that still needed gelded. At auction for $75, yep sounds kid safe to me. Then the other night the first lady and this man are going on and on about the mans granddaughters horse their selling for $7,500 and how anyone can ride her and she's the perfect kids horse in front of this girls grandmother. His granddaughters horse is automatic I've seen it run with just the reins around its neck. Yes she is a good horse but not very fast, my mare has always outran her with me on her. I am not selling my mare for near that price either. The girl ran exbition on my mare for the first time last week at our practice night and only ran 2 seconds off my usual times in our barn and did just fine on my mare, she can ride well and this mare has alot to teach her. They can grow a long ways together. The grandma thinks its funny and just doesn't comment, she told me if anyone asks what she paid she's telling them 6,000 to see how fast that gets to me lol. I just think its ridiculous and think people should mind their own business, the first one just annoyed me because the lady knows I bought this colt in hopes he will be better than the mare whose a 2D/3D horse. I'm just a bit fed up with people anymore.
