So I haven't posted about this before since I didn't want to put you all through the shopping experience that drags on and on. But, I think I have found Mr Perfect-for-what-I-want. He's not at all what I had in mind. I was thinking tall, black, gaited. He's short, stout, sorrel, grade Quarter Horse. Oh well. It's the brain that matters and I was looking for sane and cool to be around over anything else. A horse that will be patient with me as I teach him silly things like how to bow. One that won't get lazy or agitated on the 3rd lap of me trying to master the sitting trot. I can post all day. Sitting, not so much even if the horse is on the perfect speed. Sunday I'm going to look at him, and if we click, he'll follow me home. He sounds like a cool dude though. To top it off, I found the barn earlier this week, and I honestly thought I would find the horse easier and the barn much harder. I've been looking for both for months now, trying to avoid a waiting list on the barn and keeping myself reined in on "pretty is as pretty does"... and both popped up in the same week!
