Sorry this is a lengthy the story. I had picked out a Perlino Quarter Horse and bought him, but I was having a hard time bonding with him. Which is why the owner was selling him to begin with. But I thought I might have better luck. I tried, he is gentle and listens well, but is very hard to catch and seems very wary of people.
While I was there trying to bond with the Perlino, This Bay Roan Stallion QH kept being all lovey-dovey and affectionate to me And we started to bond. He is only about two and very green, which is not what I was really looking for. But you know how they say sometimes the horse picks out the owner. Bo picked me out and I fell in love with him. I always thought he was beautiful but out of my price range.
So one day I took my daughter and my grandchildren out to the ranch. And he warmed right up to them too. After they left, I sat on the horse trough for a while And Bo kept coming up to me snuggling and wanting attention. And so I prayed about what to do. The answer to my prayer was clear. I needed to buy Bo.
So that night I called the owner and I asked her if we could work something out.
She gave me a very good price and a payment plan and Bo was mine.
We also figured out a price for her to train him and teach me how to train him and a boarding price. She was great and we worked out something within my budget.
Saturday she taught me and my wife how to lunge him, clean his hooves and Bo did a great job. He is going to need a lot of training. And in the meantime I'm taking riding lessons to get better.
And so begins the story of me and Bo. I will keep you updated. I'm extremely happy. God has blessed me.
Here is a picture of Bo, me and my granddaughter on the morning of the day I bought him.
Even Jesus Loves horses, He is coming back on one.
LET 'ER BUCK!
