That's when you get photos like this:

Best wishes for your horse acquisition!

I like them both. I would go with the gelding too if in your shoes.

There will be only one of you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.

My eye was drawn to the gelding, NOT to the filly. To me, he's the one with the presence.

And he is the smarter choice, based on your goals.

Trust me ..... when you go horse shopping .... it is oh so easy to fall in love.....

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Just my 2 cents, but I'd go with the 5 year old....the reason being, you can ride him now.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

My advice?....TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN! Go on a cruise, see the world, take up skydiving.....ANYTHING!

First you get a horse, then you get a barn, the horse is lonely, so you get another one to keep it company. The two of them get a little crowded on the small place you now have so you have to go buy another one. Then you have to clear the land, build fences, plant fields, and build another (bigger) barn. Now this giant field looks pathetic with only two horses in it......more horses! Now you need a bigger truck to pull the gigantic trailer to move all these horses. The barn isn't big enough to fit all the hay in so you need another one. There's poo EVERYWHERE! Even on the 4 wheeler parked OUTSIDE the fence! Far more poo than can be moved by hand so you need some machinery. We're not talking a little lawn tractor....no... a big one. Capable of moving many cubic yards of POO!
Then there's farriers. The only way I could get a good one is to find some dirt on him that his wife doesn't know about. If she ever figures it out, I'm screwed.
The vet was here so many times, we became good friends and now go hunting and fishing together. I think I put his kid through college.

Would I change a thing? NO WAY But you've been warned.
