Loretta (on right) a bay roan grade mare (unregistered AQHA.)
She only has about a month of riding on her but is doing very well, gaining experience on trails and in the arena.
She has a great, calm, mind and a sweet loving personality. Her owner calls her a future kid's horse.
No that is not me standing on Loretta, I am not brave enough to do that!
I kinda fell in love with her from the get go, her bay face and white star and sweet expression.
And she is to be for sale.
And yes, I'm thinking about buying her.
But I am still unsure. Two horses are a lot more work and expense than one. And quite frankly, I need to get a job before I get another horse.
And because she is young, she still has a lot to learn. From the 5 times I've ridden her, I feel like we could work well together and I have resources to help me with her training should I need it.
My Boy will always be my boy and he is going nowhere. But at 17, with the arthritis in his hocks, I can't do some of the things I'd love to do with a younger horse. And it would be nice to have a spare that I could ride when friends or family visit.
What do you all think? Does one person really need two horses?
