    Sadly, as others have said, that is the consequence of selling. You give up all control of what happens. Perhaps you can keep your eye out for him, since he's a show horse, and then contact...

    Living in Central Illinois, which isn't that far from central Indiana, I would not recommend the climate to anyone who wants to get away from winter. Ugh. I abhor the midwest's climate.

    My only issue with this whole thing is, when you get a bill, don't ignore it.

    Even if it's a mistake, call the biller up and ask why you got one. Then you can negotiate or do whatever. By...

    Did you buy a horse in 2014?

    Yes, in July. I bought a Paso Fino, a breed I had never owned before, but ridden. I was ready for something new after TBs/warmbloods.

    How are you and the horse...

    Conformation is usually indicative of whether a horse would do well at one job or another ... so what do you want to do with him? He looks like a fine pet, but he would probably like a job, if he's...

    There was some interesting reasoning on the FB page why the mares could still be liberty horses ... apparently some are trained only to respond to trainers that speak another language (Russian was...

    He seems like a lovely horse. Nothing glaringly out of place to me, I agree, those withers will be an issue with saddle fit. Maybe a little short in the pasterns, but not enough to make me cringe...

    You said the mom doesn't deal well with stress, and no help at home with dad being gone all the time. Don't stir the pot.

    Call with your questions concerning the horse, and if they haven't paid...

    Now that is surprising he fell through the cracks... someone must have taken him as a breeding stallion with that color, all those color TB breeders out there?

    Look at it this way -- people go look because they want to make sure it's the right purchase for them. The fact that people look at all is proof that there is some interest in buying, no matter how...

    An interesting take on the perspective of the professional trainer. It's good to hear the other side's point of view ... and it's true, the money shelled out by the "hands off" types does support...

    The best horse I have owned that was calm and eager to please was a Hungarian/Arab cross. I think the Hungarians are great, but again, might be out of your budget.

    Right now I have a Paso Fino,...
