- No, I'm not one of the Anita friends you know, it is just a nickname. I think 6K is still too much for me when I would have to ship the horse in & fly out to see one. I figure adds at least 1K to the price of the horse. But if I am looking at more than one horse, the price to go look sure goes down!
I love riding a gaited horse but I kind of miss trotting & posting. Besides i need a horse with more stamina and better recovery, so I need something else to do endurance with. Chivas can't cut it with the slow speeds he has.
If Babe Magnet could get below 5K I could do it. That is my cut-off point & I have to stick to it because this barn addition is costing me a lot of $$
He is a very nice looking horse! I am going to ask them for a video to see first before I come look. I have ruled out a lot of horses that way, I send my instructor the link and she has been saying yes or no. Only two yes so far, lots of no's.
- Hey Joe, a large automotive company now known as Government Motors opened a plant about 20 years ago in Spring Hill TN. As a result, we now have an over abundance of dam Yankees and the culture has forever changed.
Prior to that, most people didn't object to neighbors using there land.
