Aw, darn! We were going to call and make sure she didn't want him today, too- your situation sounds so perfect for him.

I suppose I'll keep looking then! (And stop telling Jack we have buyers until it's solid... haha!)

Hemms, if you wait for a man to make up his mind you'll be standing around for a very long time. Tell him what time you are leaving, then start pulling out of the yard. That should get him moving.

Lol, Saddlebag! If it were my prospect, yes. As it is his, and he does still have his old boy, no go. Thems ground for D-vorce, in his language. That whole "Respect me and I'll respect you"... Great foundation for a relationship, but sometimes a real pain in the arse!

The overlap of horses until the time his gelding retires would make a great buffer for getting Levi ready for trails more... ;)

But in all seriousness, I do understand. It's too bad, but I'm hoping I can find another buyer who isn't from craigslist. (And no offense meant to anyone who buys horses from craigslist... But I know there are some unsavory characters who browse there).

I know well the concern of finding a good home for an equine friend. I don't take it lightly, when selling or buying! Keep looking and networking. There are more like us out there!! Maybe tour local barns and post a photo add? That summer pic is gorgeous and really conveys a soft personality.

Have you considered selling/donating him to a therapeutic riding center? Even if he doesn't have a ton of miles, conformation and personality are two of the biggest factors, at least when I evaluate a horse (that is my main job, training horses for our therapeutic riding program). I actually choose horses I can mold to my liking versus one I have to "undo" stuff on :) Not that he would be able to be used right away, but there are lots of centers willing to put miles on good-minded horses! My last craigslist find was a 17.2 Irish Draught Gelding, not started. Picked him up for free, and I'm training him to do exactly what we need. His build and personality made training a breeze. And there is no short of love or appreciation for the animals in all of the therapeutic riding programs I've been to :) They are usually extremely well cared for! And open visiting rights might also be something you can work out.

Hemms, I have had pretty good success with first buying the horse than putting on a push up bra and telling husband, (of course he can't complain at the last auction we were at I went to bathroom and came back to find out he had just bought two wild draft foals)

Thanks! I didn't even think about that as an option.
