We may have found a horse for my husband!

A lady at my barn might be selling a 12 year old strawberry roan Missouri foxtrotter.

She is such a good horse, she is dead broke. She was being used as a lesson horse, but most recently has just been a pasture ornament. I'm so excited, her owner can no longer ride her due to illness.

Our barn owner has just been taking care of her for the past few years for free but she can no longer do it Anymore. I might even get her for free!!!! I'm so excited I hope she works out.

Once, years ago, I saw a gorgeous black horse riding at Cougar Mt. park (in Bellevue area) and I asked the lady, "what kind of horse is that?" and she said, "Missouri Fox Trotter" I have never fortgotten what a gorgeous horse that was and thought, maybe some day I'll get one. I haven't yet, but I think they are wonderful horses.

I bought a foxtrotter for my "husband" horse. She's a sweetheart.

If you get that mare, make sure you get a bill of sale (even if she's free). That stuff will come back and bite you if you don't set up a paper trail.

Good luck and I hope it works out for you.

Yes, always get some paperwork to name you as the owner. Better to be safe than sorry.

I will get a bill of sales if she works out. I'm so excited. I like foxtrotters I've ridden the barn owners foxtrotter once..
This mare is just so sweet she's been unpampered for so long she really appreciates some attention.

Hey tiny, my barn owner has a super cute 5 year old foxtrotter gelding for sale. :)
He is a white and chestnut pinto with pretty blue eyes.
