Today, we bought a horse.
Yes. Another one.
It was kind of an accident. The plan was to just go visit the breeder we got Laredo from, and see what he had in terms of unstarted two-years-olds. The plan was we’d look them over and hang out with them a little, and then maybe go back in the fall and pick one out.
I guess we should have known better. Things did not go according to plan. This morning we purchased this little girl:
When we sent Bear to Miracles in Motion, we thought Brian might click with either Oliver or Aiden and take one of them into the role of his primary horse. But while they’re both really super nice horses, neither one has started to feel like ‘his.’
So, he’s going to start from scratch. This filly is (kind of) broke to lead, and she’s had her feet handled a little, but that’s all she knows. We bought her so fast because the breeder intended to send her to a trainer in the next month or two, and we really want to do the whole thing this time.
She’s going to stay with the breeder for another few months. We’ll bring her to our place when we get either Oliver or Aiden sold.
