Well, luck has struck me like a bag of bricks in the head. And for once, I don't mind the headache! Heeeeee *grins like mad*
First, I want to state before anyone gets on my case, I have not forgotten pepsi and Duke. I love them dearly and I will keep them till the day they die and I will care for them al equally. I will love them forever. This has only happened because it was metnioned in the presence of our farrier that I don't have a horse to really "practice" or have "lessons" on because I don't dare push Duke into the workload a normally ridden horse is asked of, and Shier ( normal schooling horse), has a right hind leg that is constantly acting up and makes it impossible to ride ( arthritis that's yet to fuse). Nonethless I LOVE all of my babies ( even though I don't own shiner I love him). That said...
First off, as one or two of you members might remeber, my trainer had gotten a new buscksin "lesson horse" , as she put it. My understanding had been it was already trained and for me to ride. And while I will ride him, once he's got a little more training under his belt, he is not for me to ride at this time. BUT funny enough, another buckskin has entered the scene...
I'm getting a buckskin Mustang mare on friday (the tentitivly set date of dilivery)!!! She's ten years old, rides western, but it's not horribly hard to train western to english ( bit harder the other way around I understand though). Apparently she's a good, small, hardy mare that's great on trails. If you point her to a hill, she'll set off without a second thought.
And guess how much I'm getting her for?
No, even lower.
Apparently said "sellers" have two of their daughter's horses left and nothing to do with them. But said daughter has goten into some trouble with drugs, is no longer there, and they are now just trying to get rid of them. ::Jumps up and down::
Now, lwts add to this that my amazing trainer has offered to let me board her for free, as well. I seriously just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop- and hit hard. But, nonetheless I won't let myself think negitivily ( well I couldnt even if I wanted to right now), since that's what allows bad things to happen alot. ::squeals::
OMG IM SO HAPPY!!!
