He is registered and coming from an extremely reputable seller or I wouldn't have even considered it.

I'll echo the others and say I hope all goes well on the PPE.

Just gonna chime in here... A horse at the barn where I work is 19 going on 20 and just sold for $20,000.

Congrats on them accepting a better offer! Hopefully his PPE is everything you are hoping for so you can start your new chapter together. :)

Subbing. Hope all goes well on the PPE. Glad to hear the negotiating went so well.




PS Of course I meant subbing for PICS when you get him home.

I will definitely be getting some pics asap! I have one but I kind of want to wait until after the PPE so I don't jinx anything...I can't say he is mine yet. We'll find out this coming Thursday!

Thanks all for the well wishes! My fingers are crossed!
