I got this from my BO today. Neither of us know this mare personally, so cannot give any more info than what is here. I DO have the persons phone number, so PM me if you are interested. I did not want to post it out on the internet.
I am told they only want $1000 for this beautiful mare.
We spoke yesterday on the phone regarding a Tennessee Walker that someone I know has for sale. In case, you are going to forward this email I will let everyone know the situation.
My parents recently sold their house so that they could travel, unable to take their horses they sold 2 of the 3, leaving Jet still needing a good home. When the potential buyers came to look at my parents home, they couldn't help but notice Jet out in the pasture. Mrs. A then asked my mom what they were going to do with her. My mom replied that she was still looking for someone to buy Jet. Mrs. A then replied that she and her husband were not only going to put in an offer to buy the house but would also buy Jet so that she could stay right at home. Very relieved my mom accepted the offer and soon the A's were moving into their new home and bringing their two horses over to join Jet.
This past week I recieved a call from Mr. A, he and his wife wanted to let me know that they were going to have to sell my parents home and move back to their home in West Virginia. He then told me that shortly after purchasing and moving in to my parents home they found out that Mrs. A has lung cancer. She has already had part of her lung removed. They are in the process of moving everything back to their previous home which is easier to care for and doesn't have as much property, since my parents home had 14 acres and the house, and several big hills. Mrs. A can not walk far distances and may not even be able to ride which is their worst nightmare that they might have to sell their other two horses as well. Unfortunatley there is no room for Jet at their previous residence.
Jet is a ten year old mare, just over 15 hands, she is currently up to date on all shots. Jet's best feature is that she is gentle. Jet is wonderful with children and is fully broke ready to ride. She has been around my children since they were babies and now they are ages 3 and 5 and they can walk right up to her and feed her treats. She has the best tempermant any owner could ask for and loves to be pampered!! She will stand their and let you brush her and love on her as much as you want. Attached are a few pics I was able to take today, Mr. A wasn't home so I apoligize that
I couldnt get her cleaned up a little better. I hope that with your help we can find Jet a great home.
Thanks again for taking the time to help me get the word out and find this wonderful horse a wonderful home.
