I really think she could be an awesome barrel horse. Turbo is a little lazy, but she is very forward and always wants to be moving. She can't stand still.for more than 2 Seconds. But she is really responsive to my seat and legs. Qnd she can turn on a dime and loves to do quick turns.

Well, one other thought whilst you are brainstorming "possibilities", you could tell the owner you want her and make the final sale "contingent" on selling the gelding. Just a thought.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

If money isn't a huge concern, I'd buy her, set a deadline for yourself, like three months, and work them both for three months. At the end of that time evaluate their suitability.

Although, to be honest, you have your answer already. We always do. You like a horse that isn't yours, you ride it before yours, and you feel more connected with it than yours. They are both unproven have somewhat equal potential. The only thing stopping you is that you actually own Turbo, and you feel that you owe something to him, or you should stick with that.

You have to sort out that but you shouldn't keep a horse just because you feel you should. As long as they go to a good home, they will be fine. They're herd animals, we play a role in their lives but we are not the sum of their lives. They move on. We move on.

Just choose what makes you happy, it's that simple, and try to have no regrets.

Thanks, Saskia, you are right. I more feel I owe his breeder to keep him, I really had to talk him into even selling Turbo. Now i have him, and realize I should have taken longer to decide on a horse, I would have picked Roxy

Heart horses don't come along ever day... I have mine and he costs me a fortune in vet bills. BUT I'll keep him till I starve or we both expire of old age.

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

If Turbo is such a lovely horse, you wouldn't have a trouble selling him. If you think about how attached you feel to Roxy, you could find somebody who feels the same way about Turbo.
