It's frigid cold here. Not much to do but surf online and play with the kids. My head is spinning as I look at sale horse after horse on the internet.
I want to put out an ad that goes something like this;
"Are you looking for the perfect home for your horse? I could be the owner you've been hoping for. With over 35 years of horse riding/owning/care/handling experience, I can give references from vets, barn owners, friends and trainers. If you have the perfect horse for me, he will have found his forever home. If your horse is a gelding (although a level-headed mare will be considered), over 16.2 hands tall, almost any color but gray, broke to ride, 3 good gaits and a willing jumper, sound, sane, well handled and not older than 10 years - let's talk. I have a set amount of money I can spend and while I know I can easily find a horse with all the qualities I have listed at a high price (and well worth it I'm sure) I am looking for the one who's seller is more interested in him going to a forever home than trying to turn a big profit."
It's like it's easier for me to put my qualifications out there than search through endless ads, hoping the information hasn't been "embellished" and the horse I'm taking the time to see because he's listed as 16.2 hands isn't actually 15.3. Believe me, I'm a tall, big-boned gal. I really need that big horse, and not just to fluff my ego!
