    Yep north of Dallas. Yeah Sunday I was actually going to like at 3 horses him being the only non walker and he was the first I went to look at and after riding him for about an hour realizing the bounce wasn't so bad and he didn't to be as stubern as I remember our horses being I said I'll take him. He is very fast and wants to get up and go. His only real vice is he is head shy but in the last couple if days that I have worked with him I've gottin him to let me mess with his ears. I just have a lot of desensitizing to do he is a spooky horse

    If the head shyness doesn't get better, don't rule out the physical. My mare who is usually very not head shy, became that way last summer. After much messing about, I took her to the vet who sedated her so we could get a good look. She had a tick waaay down in her ear After it cleared up she was fine. Just an FYI
