A new horse, that is. Baby OTTB #1 got vetted Wednesday and I couldn’t run away fast enough.
Tip to anyone selling a horse: If your horse is slightly off on one hind and you tell the buyer that it’s only because he was tried multiple times in a short period of time (which is totally plausible), BUT then after x-rays are performed and look totally clear, refuse to let there be further diagnostics so buyer can be sure it’s NOT a suspensory similar to the one she just spent 7+ months rehabbing….that’s shady as hell.
Yeah. Hard pass.
So the search continues. Meanwhile, I’ll be over here in NC, squirting multiple ointments in P’s eye at 7 AM, 6 PM and midnight until further notice.
