    Default I am so excited!! We just bought back one of our homebreds :) New Pics added

    I am over the moon right now. We have purchased our 2009 filly back. She is by Escapade out of our TB mare DoUThinkUCanDance. I am so thankful for this opportunity. It makes me even more excited to see the full sibiling in a couple of months. We will will do some HB shows this year with her little sister. How many breeders decided to buy back a home-bred they have sold. If so, you must have an idea of how excited we are right now. Here she is Etch-A-Sketch.

    Thanks everyone. We are very excited to have her back. Today she was turned out with her little sister for the first time. I was thrilled to see how she has developed since I last saw her over a year ago.

    Well I sold her because that is what we do as breeders here. I bought her back because her owner came on some difficult times and needed to sell her. I bought her back to insure she was developed and shown. Which is what we plan to do with her. Then our plan is to find her another owner who will continue to show her. I am confused as to how the story is funny. I thought most breeder would be thrilled to get one of "their" offspring back. I thought it was the responsible thing to do and am excited to have re gain control of a filly I was sad to sell originally. But that is the business sometimes.

    That's great! She's a very nice filly. And I don't think it is funny at all.

    What a nice filly! I'm so glad you had first refusal of getting her back - as a breeder, much less the seller, that must make you feel wonderful She'll have a great time showing with you, and I'm sure you'll find the perfect buyer for her again

    Chestnut filly with flaxen mane/tail, and chrome. Me like!
    She is gorgeous! Congratulations on having her back.
    I could never be a breeder--I'd have reasons for keeping all of the foals.
