    That sounds easy enough! Where would I get a dental syringe though? And actually the thrush is near the toe on her sole, not on the frog (the frog actually looks super healthy at the moment). Should I put it there instead, and if so how would I keep it on there since she stands in shavings? Or should I do both the sole and the sulci?

    A horse can't get thrush on their soles, at least not that I know of. Is the sole white, chalky, flaky? If it is, that's just exfoliating sole. It's completely normal and actually healthy. It's dead sole flaking off to reveal true sole. The wetness of her stall probably helped it loosen up.

    Oh xD well then. Yes, its white and flaky- the same color I'm used to seeing with thrush. So I guess that's just what I assumed it was. That's good then! Thank you! I'm still learning the ins and outs of hooves apparently. LOL.

    Lol don't worry, the first time I saw it I freaked out too. Now I sometimes encourage their feet to get wet to help shed the dead sole faster.

    Ok, so I have a question. The lady buying Kenzie (I'm going to start calling her T) is still trying to schedule with me a day to buy/pick her up and honestly we've had a hard time since both of our schedules are crazy and she's wanting her trainer to be with her to pick Kenzie up so that everything goes smoothly (which I think is wise, even though Kenzie loads and hauls like a champ. I love how involved her trainer is.) They were planning to come this weekend but they called yesterday and said T is having trailer troubles so they are going to have to get it repaired before trekking down here. She is SO sweet though and knows that I'm having some financial troubles at the moment, so she suggested that she buy Kenzie this weekend (she would come down herself without the trailer) and just give me the money for her feed and shavings this week to keep her until she can be trailered to Brazoria. That sounds great to me personally because honestly I'm running REALLY low on money at the moment. I've been doing odd jobs and babysitting for some friends but I'm really hurting from the lack of my paycheck every other week, especially since I'm having to buy 3-4 bags of shavings ($28) a week at the moment and I'm about to need to buy some more feed. I honestly don't have the money for it right now. If she did buy ($200 plus the money for upkeep this week) that would reimburse some of what I've had to spend and I can pay a bill or two.

    But I figured I'd check with y'all to see what you thought of us doing that. I really feel like I can trust her, she's been nothing but straightforward and we've already sort of become friends, but at the same time I don't want to get myself in any sort pickle by 'feeling' like I can trust her and something happening. So what do you think? Should I accept the offer, or just tough it out another week and hope she can come by next week to pay?

    I would accept, since she offered. Once Kenzie is at her place she will be taking care of all that stuff anyways....and since T wants to buy her but has not paid you yet, you are 'holding' Kenzie for her. I ssee no issues with it - but I would get everything in writing and signed when she comes down. :)

    For sure. I already have her coggins certificate in order, as well as two copies of a bill of sale for her to sign when she comes down. Should I make some sort of contract saying I am keeping Kenzie for her? She's giving the money for the week to me up front so she shouldn't owe me anything unless next weekend doesn't work out.

    The good thing with that is that I can officially take Kenzie's sales ads (I have them on like 5 websites...lol) down and stop getting calls from interested buyers. I've had at least six and have talked to each of them/collected their numbers in case something fell through, but honestly no one struck me as being as suitable for Kenzie as T is. One guy wanted to know if he could register and race her, another asked if she would cross well with and Andalusian (O_O Kenzie does not need to have babies. Not at all) and another wanted to know if she was a husband safe trail horse yet that could pack 200 lbs. Another called, sounded nice, but then started referring to Kenzie as the "tenessee walker" and wanting to know if she was over 15.2hh...when I very pointedly wrote in all of her ads that Kenzie is an unregistered but racing bred THOROUGHBRED and that she's barely 14hh. The last one was a teenaged girl who wanted to know how broke to ride she was and if she had been started in dressage or jumping because she needed a broke horse. When I said no she asked why I hadn't broke her yet, so I explained that she just turned two and is small for her age. Then she proceeded to change her story and start telling me she could break Kenzie herself if I would sell her for $100 instead of $200, and she just needed a cheap horse. Yeah no.

    So I really think I just got lucky with T and her trainer! Most people in this area are inexperienced or nuts xD

    Yikes! Those other calls sound slightly concerning. Good thing you lucked out with T!

    That's great that she is willing to help you out since you're going to keep Kenzie longer than expected. I think it's fair that she would pay for her upkeep this week since she was supposed to pick her up this weekend. Just like anywhere else you would board a horse.

    If you get a good vibe off these people and have an airtight contract, you should be fine. I think a lot of times, these things work out perfectly for all involved. Sometimes, they really go quite wrong (and people then post forums with outrageous stories), but I imagine most of the time, it goes according to plan.

    Your phone calls...oy! Nothing like advertising a cheap horse to bring all the crazies to the yard.

    No kidding! I kind of regret putting $200 as her sales price, should have just put private treaty or something. She comes up as one of the cheapest, and the only one of her price that isn't ridiculously old or lame, so all of the cheapies and wish buyers are calling me.

    I really do like this lady and her trainer a lot. And it doesn't hurt that she has already invited me to go on a fundraising trail ride in February with them, and they're willing to led me ride their mustang...and they plan on bringing (ponying obviously) Kenzie along with them so I might get to see her if that's the case!
