    Default I DID IT!! I'm going to be a horse owner again!

    Well, I posted on here about one of the horses I was looking at and ended up passing on. We've looked at about eight others, none of which gave me that gut feeling that I had about my last horse. Until I drove four and a half hours through the pouring rain and found "Bentley". He hung his head over the door and it was instantaneous. I immediately said to myself "I hope that's him." He had the kindest eye and was so sweet, quiet and well behaved. He's two years old and is by Dancing to the Blues who is out of Skys Blue Boy, and out of a OTTB mare. He's registered as black, but is either bleached, or actually a really dark brown, or is going to grey out, as both parents are grey. His personality is just so loveable, he's not pushy, or a pest, but he just enjoys being right there with you. I'm excited. Best of all he's well within my price range. I'm going this weekend to pick him up and bring him home. Until then, I've got a stall to renovate...I can feel my arms and back aching already!

    Congrats! Hope you love him as much as I love my SBB mare.
    I heard a neigh. Oh, such a brisk and melodious neigh as that was! My very heart leaped with delight at the sound. --Nathaniel Hawthorne

    YAY... isn't that the best when it's love at first sight. My last three horse purchases have been just that.

    One of my boys was a week old. There were 10 other babies in the barn and this one little sassy bay that would run under his mom to escape the hands of the humans. I said "I want that one".

    My big guy - I searched for two years and a friend told me about a HUGE horse but questioned if I wanted a horse that big. I went to go take a look anyway. And as I approached the horses, I saw this amazing horse and said "I sure hope it's that one." Right from the start I wanted him.

    Most recent love of my life - Searched for years on line and then this video appeared via trainer in my email. Again, love at first sight. I had to have this horse. There was just something about him.

    I am soooooo happy for you!! Keep us updated on your adventures
