Well, my hunt for a horse continues.
I recently got an email from someone I apparently contacted a while back about a horse. He told me he has an older gelding for sale. I got his address and headed over there with not much information.
I got there, and it turns out, it's a huge spotted Appy. He's not real into people, but he's supposedly broke and safe to ride. From the ground, I wasn't comfortable, so I wasn't about to try to ride him. I asked if they had anything else for sale. He said he has a few 5 and 6 year-old horses ... but they're just green-broke. I figured I'd look anyway. Yeah. That's like going to "look" at a puppy. Uh-huh.
This guy was adorable. He's very friendly, curious, and gentle. Loves people, and loves the attention. I am mulling over whether or not I'd like to work with "green broke" or get something really broke broke. We'll see, I guess.
He's the horse you see first and last in this video.
