Dream Horse can be dangerous!

Amazing how things just fall into place sometimes. I've always been happier with a horse in my life and I hadn't had one since I had to sell my QH gelding and my Mustang mare about 10 years ago (can't believe it's been that long) So I decided that it was long past due to get another and have horses be a permanent part of my life! I was originally going to wait a while to purchase said horse to give me plenty of time to prepare i.e. gather supplies (as I had none anymore), find a boarding facility, check out area vets and farriers etc and save up the money to basically buy the horse I wanted (within reason- I was thinking $3500) WELL..... let me give you a little bit of advice........DO NOT go on until you are ready to buy!! I couldn't help myself, I just HAD to look and you can probably guess the outcome . Yep, I found a beautiful red dun 2 y/o filly, another QH which is what I wanted . I don't regret it even though it was about 8 months earlier than my original plan! With her quick delivery (4 days after I bought her) I had to go into turbo mode to get everything ready,but sometimes you just gotta roll with it. I've had her for over a year now and she's a keeper!

Dreamhorse is so dangerous, isn't it? I'm actually glad I ended up buying the horse that I was leasing....I can't imagine how crazy and stressed I would have been if I'd had to shop online! ;)
Your filly is lovely!
P.S. I still "window shop" on all the time!

Oooh, I can't wait to hear more about your new hooved's fun reading about other people who are getting back into horses! I rescued 4 little girls in May and added my 5th last month. Talk about not quite keeping with the plan :D

Looking forward to hearing about your adventures!
