I just wanted to add that the only horse I have ever owned came from the auction, an acquaintance bought her as a 'project horse' and then lost interest. Sold her to me for what she had into her and she became MY project horse. She was sweet - to me - but had 'issues'. The woman I bought her from had originally said that I could keep her on her property for free as long as I paid for food, hay, farrier, etc...then my horse bit her when she tried to THROW her blanket on her and she said I had to get her off the property. I couldn't afford board and still have time to work with her so I couldn't keep her, gave her to a good family. Now I am working with other people's 'project horses' who don't have time for them...I don't mind...but I want MY next horse to be THE ONE. One that I can just get on and ride and don't have to worry about it spooking at a leaf moving and taking off without me or bucking my off because it doesn't want to work because it hasn't been ridden in 3 weeks etc.. (all of which I have dealt with these other people's horses). So I want to be kinda picky and I am not in an incredible rush right now either. I'm not keen on palomino's, but all the other characteristics of that palomino paint seemed right for me so that's why I emailed on it.
Keep 'em coming though, I like to get on here and see what you've found!
