he is gorgeous.... palominos are one of my faves!!!!! don't see too many where I live. My horse search isn't full steam ahead right this moment as my mother was diagnosed with cancer last week...and so while I have found a few options for both new owners / riders for Jet ..and new horse for myself... it will be a few weeks before I get to even try one out...with traveling to Atlanta for my mothers surgery .... and having all of my focus on her right now. but as soon as I do find my match I will post all about it!!!

I am so sorry about your mom. I have the same here right now with my mom. I will be praying for her and for you.

Take your time looking - there is no rush!

Update: gelding Jet went to his new home yesterday...with a lovely couple where he will receive extensive training and will become a roper. I in return got their draft appy cross they wanted to retire him from roping to a trail pleasure home...So glad Jet got a home where he seemed to really respond to his new owners and work well for them and I'm super excited about my new guy...he's rather large but such a gentle soul...he is like riding a big comfy couch!! He's such a mellow calm guy and puts my mind and nerves at ease...don't have any good pics yet..will get some better ones today!

He reminds me of an Appy gelding we had. He lived to be about 30 and was a gem.

Wishing you many happy trail miles with this fellow!!!!!

Your new guy is super handsome. I just found this thread and I hope everything works out for you with Buck.

I rode a nut job mare for years and had more falls then I could count. I now have a dead quiet, been there, done that mare and I don't think I'll ever buy another crazy horse again. As someone without a lot of time I love being able to saddle up and go wherever without all the drama.

Be sure to keep us updated with the new fellow!

Congratulations on both finding Jet a better match AND on finding yourself a horse that is a better fit for you, as well as handsome! Some horses (like mine) start spooky and train out of it, some just ARE spooky, and I don't know how one is supposed to tell the difference. But, as the saying goes, life is too short to ride a horse that doesn't make you happy! I hope this fellow gives you a chance to relax and actually have fun while you're out on the trails. I look forward to more pictures!

Update**** Bucks owners returned Jet and took Buck back...turns out after riding Buck a few times he had some even more dangerous habits for me than Jet did...and Bucks owners decided Jet didn't work out for them either.... so Jets back home with me... and I have him set up for working with a local trainer which I am very excited about.... hopefully this will be a good outcome for us....quite a bit upset that Jet came home all beat up ..they stuck him in a pasture with two studs who just beat the heck out of him ..he seems so very happy to be home..he just loved his head all over me giving me sugars...and followed me everywhere
