[RC] Choosing Btwn Horses - Decision Made! - Aaron Turnage

Thank you to everyone who replied to my question of
possibly getting a new horse.  A few people did
suggest I puchase the new one and keep my current
horse but I just can do that.  My husband would kill
me (yes, literally I believe) and my son is only 2 yrs
old so not quite old enough to sell on the "market"
yet.  =)

I have decided to keep my current much loved boy
Sinatra (my pinto).  This horse really has my heart
and I just can't really imagine parting with him right
now.  He has already proven himself to be a reliable
50 mile horse and I believe will also have the
potential to do 100's.  I "think" he will not be a
top-ten horse because his easy working gaits are not
overly fast, but he is very consistent.  But I have
not allowed him to truely go as fast as he wants to at
a ride.  He's only 6 and in his second season; he
doesn't need to be going fast at this point.

Plus this horse has just the BEST personality.  He can
be a bit "naughty" at times (like when he tries to
unload me by bucking at 35 miles into a ride), but he
is also one of the sweetest boys.  And he thinks he's
a big dog.  He begs for treats and plays with sticks. 
I should teach him how to fetch!  =)

So thanks again to everyone, hope to see you on the
trail.  You can't miss us!  Chestnut overo pinto with
two blue eyes.  Our picture is on the Ridecamp Stories
