So I may have finally found my perfect horse after three months of searching! He is a retired racehorse, 15'1 or 15'2, between 12 and 14 years old and is currenty being used for a trail horse/leadline pony. Supposedly great for beginners and just sounds perfect overall. I was contacted by the stable owner who says his owner is just out of college cant afford him and needs to place him in a good home. This would be my first horse although I have worked seven days a week at a training and boarding stable for over a year now ( www.oakwoodmanor.biz ) mucking and caring for other peoples horses. I feel like I am ready to finally take the plunge into ownership and start enjoying a horse that is all mine. Helps that my aunt got a new house twenty mins away from me with a great little barn and good pasture. I get to board him there free as she is getting back into horses and is getting one of her own in the next few weeks. She wants a horse buddy for hers without he expence of two horses so should work out well all around. Waiting on an email from the barn owner but still had to share! I will post pics for feedback as soon as I get some. Im hoping he is healthy and rideable and will be going out to ride him as soon as I can arrange it. I sure hope it all works out!
