    You wait ages for one...!

    Yes, the old adage about buses is certainly true for horses!

    A couple of days ago, I spotted on Gumtree a horse that was looking for a sharer not a few miles away from me. I dropped his owner a line, hoping she might reply....

    In the meantime, my friend and I dropped into a nearby tack shop on the way home from our riding lesson, and I spotted an advert for another horse looking for a sharer just a few miles further away, so took down the number and rang the owner.

    This second horse is a 15.3 cob mare, pretty much bombproof, and is a great confidence-booster. Her owner's just looking for someone to help out with her during the summer while she brings on her youngster.

    Sounds promising, so I might be going to have a look during the week....

    However, the owner of the first horse has also replied to me, as she's looking for someone to share her horse - a 17hh Clydesdale x TB gelding. She says there are a couple of people already interested, but if they're not suitable, she'll be in touch...!!

    That's great, this way you have options. Also, depending on how much of a time commitment and/or financial asking either of them are wanting, might you be able to do both?

    I doubt I'd be able to do both, as they're some distance apart, and also depending on work situations.

    Will be interesting to see what they're both like!

    Well, guess what I'm doing tomorrow...?

    That's right, I'm going to look at BOTH horses in one afternoon!

    I'll be sure to get photos, of course....!

    Well, I went down to see the mare today - didn't have time to see the gelding, so that'll be sometime during the week.

    She seems nice enough - quiet, gentle, very friendly. And she just so happens to be a Clydesdale-cross as well!

    I'm going to go and have a shot of her next weekend, with any luck.

    I hope you find one! :)
    Good Luck!

    Well, I can write both of them off now. The gelding apparently now has a sharer, and the owners of the mare are looking for someone with a bit more experience.

    At this rate, I'd be better off buying my own!
