    Default Yes You can buy one online!

    Ok, Everyone, I will so regret this in the morning, as I've had several glasses of wine. BUT I have to brag as I am so happy!!!

    Ok background Are you ready?? We lost my fabulous pregreen horse in 2007, he was my, and you have heard it before, forever horse, he was 7 years old to colic, 2 surgeries and way too much money later he was gone.

    I was and am still devastated. He was an OTTB paid $6500 for him, but he was all that and a bag of chips. Champion in ATL and Ocala and all around the southeast. Ok fine, you've heard how great he was.

    So I lost it and all I could do was say I need another horse asap. So I looked endlessly on line for a horse. Found one and imported him, he arrives and is wonderful, but that's not the horse I am talking about.

    SO first horse arrives and my hubby says Will you stop crying now? I said no I think I need one more, No kidding, I'm sure we are heading for divorce court, surely He's had enough.
    But no he keeps me somehow. And allows me another horse, well this is the one, I'm so happy about. Well he was 3 turning 4 when we got him and now he was pregreen champion today in Atlanta at the AA show Atlanta Spring Challenge.!!!!
    I have no pictures from this sow yet but I have some previous ones I'll share. Please feel free to share your happy stories!!!

    when I get pictures from his pregreens I be sure to post! Thanks for letting me be proud, it was a long road from losing my "forever" horse, I still miss his soooo much... RIP MO!love you miss you!

    Cute story, cute horse! (And I think your husband has a home with any single COTHer if you ever decide to kick him out! )

    Congrat and I think your husband needs to give a clinic on being a supportive spouse

    Congratulations, he is lovely!

    Take it from me, you can never have too many "forever" or "once in a lifetime" horses. I am on my 4th "once in a lifetime" horse right now and happen to also have 2 of them at the same time.
