My Weekend at Finger Lakes
I just had an exhausting but totally enjoyable weekend horse shopping at Finger Lakes! Louise was an angel and walked me around barn to barn for several hours showing me horses and introducing me to trainers. Everyone there was extremely friendly and easy to deal with; they went out of their way to show their horses several times if I asked. I've been to a lot of different tracks and that is not always the case! It is an absolute beautiful part of the country too, so I would highly recommend a trip up there if you've never been. And that is coming from someone who drove over 1500 miles this weekend!
I have my eye on a horse there, but there were so many others I would love to bring home! Shawklit Sister is probably at the top of the list. You can't really see it in the pictures, but she has the kindest expression I've even seen! I went in her stall and visited with her...what a sweet, sweet filly...she will certainly put to rest all the rumors about chestnut mares! She is gorgeous too; nice wide body. I bet she will make someone an awesome sport horse!
Rockywithattitude was right up there too...he's got the big kind eyes and was a nicely put together young horse. He really seemed like a sweetheart and if I win the lottery in the next couple of weeks, he will no longer be available! ;)
Somewhereinbetween was really cute too; I really liked the way she was put together and she had a very pleasant expression. I bet what she lacks in size she would make up for in heart!
There were so many others too...I can't remember all the names. Anyone looking for a winter project or horse for themselves should definitely check out the website. I got 2 last year and both worked out wonderfully.
Thanks Louise (and the 2 volunteers whose names I can't remember!) for all your help; you are doing a great job for these wonderful animals!
I know, I know, I know!!!
He's a beauty, to be sure!!! So excited Caryledee!
