I want to let you know that I thought that it was well put, you said this very well. You are so right " my horse and I"!
I don't want to sound like a mean person, but, I wont buy a horse that I don't feel a connection with. There was only one time that I did buy a horse that I didn't have a connection with, and that was because someone was coming to buy her that deals with the meat factory, and was going to buy her for 300, so I bought her for 500 and sold her when I spent a little time with her getting her use to her feet being touched, and now she is at her "forever" home!
you can start with nothing, and out of nothing or no way, a way will be provided.
