Dad’s going to look at barns, or lean-to run in’s with tack/feed room combo’s, and he is almost finished with snow and will get moving on finishing the pasture fence/cross fence.. 80 tons of gravel coming etc, things are moving along on getting ready for Samwell..
And with seeing these things come together, hubby has agreed that I can “softly” start looking for our new horse, I am so excited, he has agreed that it does not make sense to miss out on a good horse, if the right one found, over the next couple months till sam is either picked up or shipped to dad’s.
It’s not as easy as it sounds, I have a pretty firm list of what I want and what I don’t want and what I am flexible on.
Draft or Draft Cross
Broke to ride
Four or older, so I can get a idea on conformation/height
12 or youner- so its a general match to Brandy age wise
ideally right around 16 hands
No alpha’s, need to work well with Brandy
flexable- mare- but prefer gelding
Now the looking starts, and I need to be careful, the horse that is chosen, will be with me for many years to come.. I need to pick wisely..
