Long story short: I tried to buy this girl when she was on the track, but she had sold the day before my call. I've been searching for a horse and haven't found what I'm looking for, browsing craigslist daily. She was on the craigslist for an area I don't usually look in, and the ad was short and simple with no names or photos. Imagine my surprise when the photos I'd drooled over months before ended up in my inbox, with the name to confirm! Her current person has nothing but good things to say about her (and that right hind is normal, just a funky photo/standing position) and she will be at my place next weekend.
She has had (and will continue to have) the winter off with nothing but some ground driving around trails, and I am so excited to hop on her in the spring! I have my heart horse, my gelding, as well, so there's no need to rush with this baby. Jockey Club says she's four, officially she's just three still.
Just wondering. Was she flipped for a great deal more than she brought direct from Finger Lakes?
No. She is actually $500 less. Her current owner is in the middle of divorce, has a few other horses, and just wants to see this girl get into a good home. (Which was her initial plan anyway, after restarting her in the spring.) We are already Facebook friends and she is very interested in seeing this girl do well and be happy.
Awwe... Shes cute! When somethings ment to be, it will be I got a new gelding a few months ago, and I wanted him before, but it never worked out, but it eventually did, and he's a dream come true!
