I've decided that life is too short to regret and wish you could have done things differently. Yeller has always "called" to me and I should have bought him at the time. I fully and completely regret not doing this. So I'm buying a new horse. A yearling that I really don't need. But she calls to me. There is something about her that I just like. I've decided I don't want to be thinking about her in a years time wishing I had bought her. I'm taking a chance and if she doesn't work out then I can always sell her.
The past couple of weeks I've been thinking about the reality of owning two same aged babies. The reality of the expense involved in starting two three year olds, in showing two horses at the same time. I think if I stagger their starts I can manage it. Because I want these horses to go to the Canadian Supreme I will be picky in choosing who will start them and guide both them -and me- on our journey. Babies are unpredictable and who knows how this is going to turn out. But it'll sure keep life interesting!
My new girl needs a name. She's very quiet and friendly, the first to walk up to you in the field. She won't be big - probably around the 14.3 mark. And yes - better pics to follow once I get her home. :) Check out her pedigree (AQHA papers pending.)
