I think you should call and maybe set up a payment arrangement on him if they'll let you *wink wink* He sounds awesome (I've read your other posts)!

I have to add this pic of Rain when we first brought her home. We put them in the back yard when we first brought them home so we could spend time with them and ride them in a smaller enclosed area. One of the kittens walked up and looked at her and she just froze! Hence my captions LOL!!

Yah the owner wants them to go to good homes but yet the horses feet are neglected. I heard you need to be careful with auction horses. A friend of a friends got a horse from a auction and the horse seemed fine and they bought her and she had a serious injury and know she is just a pasture pet.

Thank you for your concern. Rain, Willow and their feet are now fine. I'm glad that you aren't an older retired individual with limited means. Be thankful he did the right thing by Rain. And I will add that GOOD farriers are difficult to find in our area whereas the jack-of-all-trade farriers are a dime a dozen and not worth their weight in horse poo.

I'm well aware of the potential issues with auction horses which is why I took Indy with me as she is VERY knowledgeable in this aspect. I'm sorry ladybug, but your post has rubbed me the wrong way.

Everyone knows that auctions can be bad places. I think of it as 'bad things happen to good people so therefore bad things happen to good horses'.

Oh and the upfront money isnt the problem with this guy. The girl told me today that she would be willing to practically give him to me along with his saddle and all of his tack. Its the monthly board that would kill me. The cheapest board around is at my friends farm and its $175/month. I work too much at my real job to work off any board. Ill just have to wait *sigh* I just want to scream "BUT MOOOOMMMMM" lol

Im in Southwest PA near pittsburgh. I agree that it totally sucks. Eventually my little family will have a few acres and a house (we are looking!) then I wont have to worry so much about the upfront $175+ a month. That sure will make things better!

Are you in State College? My hubby drags me there twice a year for football games! LOL

Yes I'm in State College. I hope you get a farmette soon! I'm renting about 10 acres and managing it myself with my horses and training clients' horses but no real boarders and I love it! So much better than boarding even though I have less amenities. Who needs a ring or an indoor? haha. I have a field and trails and the best care I can possibly give my guys. Plus it's cheaper =P

Very true! The place I board now has a round pen and a ring...but they are far from fancy. I would trade them both for decent trails.

I love how Willow seems to be giving the camera the evil eye on the first page.
