Is the other mare still in the running you tried still in the running or are you thinking of looking around more in case this doesn't work out?

The other mare is still in the running, but also still very expensive. I've got ISO ads running on Facebook to see if I can scare up anything in a better price range but I don't plan to move on any of that until I know whether Nikki becomes sound again.

I think its worth waiting to see if she comes sound with the shoeing and a chance to let any bruising heal - you've got nothing to lose from doing that - obviously if something amazing comes up in the meantime you can rethink

I contacted her on Monday or Tuesday and she still hadn't gotten the shoes on. Said she had an appointment for later in the week. I hope she does it.

In the meantime, I'm thinking about taking another ride on that little mare I liked a lot that got a little jiggy at the bridge. She was pretty solid, otherwise, and I'm watching the seller's Facebook page and seeing that they are putting lots of trails miles on her. I might want to ride her again just to give her a second chance. To be honest, I have been so busy with other things that I haven't been thinking much about riding. Shocking, I know.
