When I bought my 2 year old... I was looking for a little older horse, like a 3-4 year old, but when I saw Breeze's ad, I decided to look at her, there was no picture, and all I knew was she was a black 2011 filly with 1 blue eye... when I went to see her, she was beautiful, I went out, and then learned that she was an untouched, scared of people horse, but I bought her anyways, because I liked her attitude, and there was something about her. Even though I bought a horse younger then I wanted, I knew what my skills were, and I thought I could handle her, and I did, I got her halter broke, and trusting people, and the basics of ground work. I did however make a mistake by 'spoiling' her when I didn't even realize it, and gave her more love then training. I caught my mistake, and fixed it before she became dangerous, and now I am getting help, be taking her to a trainer, but only to get insturction to widen my skills.
What I am trying to say is, there are people who will buy a horse for there looks, and people who will be like me and buy a horse, that they didn't want to buy because they felt like the horse was worth more then just being a scared of people little pasture pet... like Breeze would have been if I did not buy her. But people can be unrealistic about their skills, and buy a young horse and ruin it... I am just glad I fixed my mistake before it got too bad.
