Could You be Loved...

...and be loved?

It's late. It's been a long day of traveling to and from going to see the young horse for sale I found.

But I had to post, because this time there was a connection.

It felt like love at first sight. Within minutes after handling him he snuggled his head into my chest and his big eyes warmed my heart. He knows voice commands, he long lines and is starting to longe. I watched his trainer ride him and then I mounted up. It's been a loooong time since I rode a greenie, but he was a nice surprise under tack. Very green but not spooky and very willing. The woman who trained him knows her stuff. He's been given a good, solid start.

He is at an awkward stage in his growth, he's two and will just turn three in March. There are some things that need to be discussed in the vet check that I want to be sure if they will work out as he matures.

Though I am trying very hard to keep my heart guarded, he melted me. I'm hoping the clouds are starting to lift. On to step two, vetting him out.

I so so hope the vetting works out. I have a good friend looking for a horse. Found a "connection" with one and the vet stuff didn't work out, so my heart is rooting for you. This guy sounds truly lovely.

Just found your blog through English Rider's links so I will be visiting. I left a message below for young, accomplished Devon for his shoelace success. You should be one proud mother! *G*

That's Wonderful! If you feel a connection already that is wonderful! Maybe you found your horse. I agree you should try to keep your heart guarded until he passes the vet check. Did you take any video? We would love to see him! And I think it says a lot that she would rather ride than lounge him! Finger's crossed! Are you doing full x-rays even though he is only 2?
