    LOL, how long do you think the polish lasts in pasture?!

    IT'S A PINTO!!!! not exactly spotted, but close. Like the indians ride.
    Ok, that would be a selling point in Germany....

    Too true! Took white arabian out for first trail ride of the season this year (don't ask -- we got 2' of new snow on Mother's day *rolls eyes* and it was +2degC when I went riding today, that's about 36degF ... global warming is a lie LOL). He was gleaming white before the ride, got him gleaming again after the ride and then said to him "there you go... now go have a good roll and ruin all my work" as I turned him back out into the pasture. We're on sand here, so his choices are grass stains or manure stains... he usually chooses grass.

    You guys are quick on the draw with the pony finding! Funny that the name Commanche came up for the pony, DD's mare came with that name. Registered name was Silk Satin N Lace, but she was coming from a 10 yo boy. We changed it to the girl friendly Mistletoe.

    Yes $4500 is a bit polished for our needs!

    Nothing close enough to me here in Northern CO, either. Any decisions will take awhile yet, I'm due in a week and the last thing I want to do is add to my workload!

    not to mention that a 3-almost-4 yr old may change his mind about horses 5 times in the next 5 months. Pony-drooling, I mean, Pony-Shopping is great fun, but I think I'd let him earn his pony by having him learn on DD's pony and wait til he demonstrates sustained interest and meanwhile you just focus on your infant.
    I know there is "nesting syndrome" right before childbirth. Might there be a related "Pony-Shopping Syndrome?"

    Thanks BEARCAT, but that is a dealer and I wouldn't touch anything on there with a ten foot pole. Every week she has multiple new horses listed.

    Lilitiger2, that one may actually be something up our alley. I don't need super athletic, just small enough that DS and the future DD2 can do stuff by themselves. One step up from a stuffed pony is definitely an option!

    Except if pony is no longer ridable, she had more than
    "mild laminitis" or is no longer sound for other, unspecified reasons ... I'd hold out for the bombproof, 10H version (unless your kids are the very tall sort )
