just have to warn you guys my parents are still not ok with me getting one, but i'm hoping if i actually find one that would be good for me and if i work my *** off to get money to pay for it then they will say ok. i am looking for a horse that i can learn from and one that will not kill me along the way. i know i shouldn't be concerned about looks, but i can't really help it, i love grey TB's. but any Tb would be good. one that is min of 15 hands, 15 hands is good. one that would be good for a first time owner, so maybe a little older, but not too old.
as far as money, cheaper would be good, but with rescues none of them seem too much. my parents aren't so much concerned with the up front cost, but the monthly boarding, vet bills, ferrier... but i still need a cheaper horse. plus, i love animals, i have over 40 at my house now (when people hear this they think it's weird and gross, but they are all kept very clean and all are very healthy :) ) and to adopt an animal would be way better than buying it, just becuase there are so many horses and so many that need homes. so it's partially for that reason too.
ooh yeah, almost forgot, i live in upstate.
did you look at the link? i am a sucker for dapple or flea bitten grey TBs.
