    You should not only keep us updated on Emmie's progress but you should also keep a journal of her adventures. You had me cracking up here and I love a good story. I would LOVE to read a story like this, told by someone with a knack for humorous, but brutally honest story telling.

    You're not alone! I often buy horses sight unseen, and if someone calls, I've been known to say, yeah, just drop him off, I'll figure out SOMETHING to do with him.
    And I've always preferred emeralds to anything else, anyway!
    I've never had a horse vetted in my life. Come to think of it, I've never really SHOPPED for a horse in my life!
    So, I want to follow along with this story, it's sounding pretty good so far, and I can't wait for the next installment!

    Reynard Ridge - GOOD FOR YOU!!! My hubby knows that if I say I'm going to look at a horse, it's almost a given that it's coming home. I feel sorry for the poor man sometimes. I did the same thing, I brought my first horse home while my husband was still putting up the electric fence. The way I look at it, it's more of an incentive to get things done. Just be careful, one horse ends up turning into 2,3 or in my case....8.
    Dancing Lawn - I'm just like you, granted I don't deal in "high-end" horses, but of my 8, only one was vetted. I figure, if they don't work out with me, for what I pay for them, there's going to be a job they can do somewhere.

    But let me give you the benefit of a tip I learned many years ago ... you CAN take the trailer with you but drop it someplace down the road so you don't pull in to look at a horse with the trailer attached. I've found you can negotiate much better if the seller doesn't see the trailer!

    Though the $700 is probably a reasonable price for an eventing prospect!
