    After returning from two days of being at WIHS, I have decided that Clay County MUST be mine! Damn if he isn't the cutest horse in the whole wide world!

    If you painted a dorsal stripe on him - you could call him a dun. He goes in a rubber D, no martingale and a big floppy rein, nose poked out! I LOFF him!!!

    I sat with my trainer and boyfriend yesterday and tried to convince them that Clay County would be much happier on the East Coast! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Both Carlton Brooks and the horse's amateur owner made the him look like a blast to ride!!!!

    Who are some of the top horses that y'all wouldn't mind seeing under your Christmas tree this year?

    I just want Billy to stay sound! Sorry I missed you at WIHS, VT. Were my directions ok or did you end up in the middle of the Potomac? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I think Elvis, Bucky Dent, and Keep The Faith would all look nice under my artifical tree.

    He wasn't at Washington, but I'd take Kindred Spirit in a minute! He is for sale, but out of my price range, which is zero cause I have one horse and can't afford another. His owner, who I know, suggested through a mutual friend that I start buying lottery tickets [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Although VT, I'd probably want Clay County too from the way you describe him!

    He's very sweet...I've never jumped him but I've hacked him for Carlton before and he's great. Emily Williams did really well on him at Capital Challenge.

    I think Apachee is for sale, or at least could be bought. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
    Please don't try to be a voice of reason. It's way more fun to spin things out of control. #BecauseCOTH - showhorsegallery

    I want Dekster. He is Large Junior Hunter that wants to be my A/O horse. He is a REALLY dark bay with a lot of chrome and moves well. Although I did have to look twice to make sure he was sound, because one of his stockings comes above the knee and it can trick the eye. I don't care, I'll take the risk that the judge won't look twice

    I am sure Ms. Betty Oare wouldn't mind if I took Estrella off her hands.

    I think we would be a perfect match.
