    WELL WELL WELL! Look who decided to go on dreamhorse and search for my ad! My BO!... she picked me up today so I could go into work and she's like "saw gypsys ad on dream horse and Ashleys aunt is selling their horse Gypsy." ..... "but you have her listed as an appendix qh which she's not" I said " well isnt it a mix with tb?" " well it all depends on how much the percentage is, I guess you could say that because she's not reg."

    I didnt say anything els but I posted about it here, and a lot of you thought she was an appendix and its better to say that then "tb type" that's what she had her listed under when I baught her. I dunno a lot of people seem interested in gypsy. So W/E.... See I knew she was going to make me feel bad for selling. Why does she have to snoop like that you know. Just makes me feel really un easy...

    If you are sure that you can handle one, what about getting a part draft?

    Ive never riden one. There is this one that has caught my eye he's been used as a lesson horse, he seems really nice! He's a belgian. Lol 17.2 hands...lol. Palomino...I just dig the hole deeper. I really like him but I need to sell gypsy first. He comes with all tack and what not. Same price as Gypsy 2,000. Here is his ad on CL

    Another one with more info

    What you think? If he's been a lesson horse, I think I should be able to handle him...

    There is no guarantee that the writer of the add is being truthful but from the sounds of it, a horse like this one might be more what you should consider getting. As I have said before tho, I would go out and try out a few draft crosses under saddle before going ahead and buying one. They ride and handle a lot differently than regular horses. The last thing you want to do is buy another horse and run into the same problem as the one you currently have with your mare.

    Oh I know, you never really know if your being lied to or not in the horse world, its jus so iffy. There are to many crazies out there... Yah I would like to go look at other horses. But I think before I get to carried away and fall inlove with one. I need to sell... If I need help from my BO I know I will have to pay a commision. And I don't want that because it will just come from my sale, then I would be short if I really wanted this gelding.

    My TB was extreamly spooky this spring I hadn't done much with him since having a baby. "Bombproof your horse" book title worked great for me and my horse. Also getting him to stand quitely with a plastic bag tied to the end of a whip with with a long string. It blows up in the wind get it to hit all part of her a little at a time until she completly is still just licking her lips relaxed. There is a video of this on youtube.com I saw Off the track TB. It worked wonders. The learn to trust you. Now my horse will even walk over a bed mattresss. Before he wouldn't even walk near a tarp. Check it out online.
