yeah this is what i thought! mums loose the will to be embarrassment when they have children! she problably wont be embarrassed anyway, seeing as she doesnt have to same feelings for this horse as you do.
If bobby is the horse in your avatar then you look good together

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Hey girl. If you don't get this lesson horse, I *may* have something that might be alright for you. Wouldn't be for another few months at least though. This guy is a 17 year old WB gelding, about 16hh. He's got the most beautiful head/neck on him and lovely hocks, not the most stunning mover but he's alright for a bit of lower level dressage and has also done a fair bit of jumping. Dead quiet on trails.
I'm picking him up tomorrow from a friends place, she's had him for about 6 years now but has just had a baby so can't afford to keep him, I've known him the whole time she's had him and he's just lovely. A real sweetheart and pleasure to have around. Lives off the smell of an oat bag. Dead easy to sit on. And has no buck in him, most he'll do is a little play on the lunge (that was after 6 months out in the paddock, first time being put on the lunge!!).
I'm taking him off her and going to do some work with him while I settle back into Uni for the next couple of months. I'll get him going walk, trot canter again, leg yield, shoulder in etc. When I'm done with him he'll have a very good basic dressage foundation.
He is 17, but because he hasn't done a hell of a lot of work, you wouldn't know it!
You're more than welcome to come up and meet him at some point if you're interested I don't live far from you from memory.

speedy da fish, thanks, lol my mum laughed at what you said. yeah thats bobby, he dosnt let anyone else do that to him. the fish time i did it, it was after a lesson and i was talking to him as i was taking him to his stall and i turned him around so i could close the gate, i turned around and he walked up to me, and placed his head in my chest, i slowly (hes head shy you see) i slowly wraped my arms around his head and rested my head on his. he just stood there with his eyes closed, i was amazed, and i have never seen him do it to anyone else with out being forst, after every lesson he always does it and i just do the same, he doesnt fret when i get him out of the paddock, he only dose it when its windy but all he does is keep his head up then. i can pretty much to anything with him annd he dosnt care.

kayty, my mum likes the sound of the horse, i live in onkaparinga hills, we need to know the price though.....cause.....2000 is pretty much the highest, posably a liiiiiittle higher. whats his nname? :) i love the part about his jumping, i love to jump and go on trails : )

I certainly wouldn't be asking more than $2000 for him. I'd say probably around the $1500 mark give or take a little depending on how much I do with him between now and if I sell him on.
His name is Rex, he's a registered trakahner and is a lovely bay. He's a very big sook, loves attention and cuddles.
I'm going to picj him up this morning actually, so will get some photo's. Keeping in mind he's been out of work for a few months and is OBESE! Hence you wouldn't need to fork out much on feeding him. He'd be a lovely pony club horse I think.

Onka hills is only about 15 mins away from me depending on where exactly you live, so I'll leve it up to you but once i start getting him working you're welcome to come up and have bit of a sit on him.

Oh yep, so I'd say about 15-20 mins away ;)

Little ****** wouldn't go on the float today, it was so hot i didn't want to get him too stirred up so going to leave it for a cooler day I think. Bit annoying but it's fair enough, poor old guy hasn't been on a float for a good 6 years. I'm the type of person who is determined to have a horse floating well before it leaves my hands, so don't worry about floating!
Will fill you in on how things are going.
