[RC] donated horse and double whorls??? - Lynda K Thompson
I need to know what you all think about this situation. I found a
horse in the classifieds in my area and called on it. The place was
actually a donation place that had been given a 5 year old mare as a
donation from a reputable breeder in my area to sell. Anyway, I've been
out to look at the mare two times. She has a nice trot, she's been
ridden 20 times and seems to be nice. She has good bone and she's fairly
stocky, she doesn't seem to be lame. I can't find anything wrong with
her. I did find out today that she will be at the farm for another week
and if the donation place can't sell her then she'll be taken to auction.
I guess what's holding me back from buying this horse is the fact that
the breeders get big money for the horses they sell and I can't figure
out why they don't sell this one instead of giving it away. I've asked a
million questions trying to get an answer that seems satisfactory to me
but the people say they're getting older and are down scaling the amount
of horses they have. Should I take a chance on this horse or pass if up
because there could be something wrong that I haven't been told? Also
the mare has double whorls on her forehead and I remember something a
while back about it but can't remember what. Thanks for the help.
