My New Guy Is An A**, But He Is Perfect For Me!!
So DH and I were at the New Years Horse Auction to buy TACK...not horses. We needed another horse like a hole in the head. BUT, this cute little grey gelding came in and really caught my eye. He's 10yo and about 15.0H. I asked if I could ride him and he cow-kicked me when I got on (first bonus point!). He had such a smooth trot and canter (second bonus point!), and was not cleaned up at all so he didn't look very pretty (third bonus point!). What made me buy him is when he was lined up getting to go into the ring, these kids were running around like little brats. He raised his leg, but didn't actually kick out. I hate kids too (except my own!), so I KNEW he would be my perfect horse. After the auction, I rode him around bareback in a halter and lead-rope. He was used as a camp horse and is just burned out. DH bought my a QH for my Birthday this past Sept, but I really want to hunt and I don't think the old girl will keep up in the field. This guy has a good go and a good whoa, so we shall see.
