Hey Beth! I just added a new post over on that Pet Support thread. I didn't want to see it get kicked off the page from non-activity. It's fun talkin' horse, ain't it?
Is this Paint the first horse you've looked at? I've never been up to the "seriously looking" phase (YET!
) but from what I've heard, they say "don't fall in love with the first one you look at." (reminds me of when we were house hunting, too) If you really like and trust your trainer, I would say go with his instincts. I'm so happy with my trainer and I know that whatever she tells me would be the "voice of reason" even though I know I would want to buy them all!
Sounds like he may be right re: growing too big for her. You also have to factor in you/your daughter's riding abilities. If this mare REALLY does have a problem (sounds to me like she's done it more than just 2 times if they thought about it enough to mention), do you have the experience to work with her? (I'm not trying to imply that you don't, I have no idea....just something to think about, too) If not, she may be a bit of a handful for a first horse.
I hope this helps a little! Let me know how you make out. Glad you popped in here! Come out of lurking more often, okay?
Jennielou----no offense or anything, but IMO a 1.8# loss is wonderful!! How much did you expect to lose?? Especially since TOM came, -1.8 ain't nothin' to shake a stick at! Like PJ said, you are doing great, keep on doing what you are doing! Great job!
PJ---We've all had one of "those" days and I'm glad you are positive enough to take on the "tomorrow is another day" attitude. How much did you spend on a digital camera if I may ask? I was thinking about looking into getting one. Not just for reg pictures, but I'm also thinking about selling some stuff on Ebay. Hmmm, gotta talk to my sister about making the "crossover" from just BUYING to SELLING. I just won another cute pair of capris that look like blue bandana. $9 for this one, but they were cute and a size SMALLER!! I should be receiving my first pants tomorrow...those $3 ones. Yellow/white capris in a gingham print. Since they are the smaller size, I'll let y'all know how they fit!
Tip of the day: Are any of you soy milk drinkers? I only like chocolate and have been getting the White Wave "Silk", but tonight bought the Sun Soy brand. I read on the WW boards that it's creamier and my gosh it is!!!! MUCH better than the Silk....more like choc regular milk.
---I also bought the new WW "Bistro style" pizzas. I saw they have 4 cheese, BBQ chicken, grilled veggie, and pepperoni. I havent tried them yet. I usually get the Trader Joes Veggie Pizza. It's a 12 inch pizza, 12 points for the WHOLE thing if you wanted to, pretty darn good, and only $2.50. The WW ones are ?? taste (I got the BBQ chicken and the Veggie...will try tomorrow) looks like about 6-8 inches and 8 points....oh! and $3.49. Well, something new to try until I go to TJ's this weekend. I'll let you all know how they are. I read on a board (Dotti's?--I only lurk there) that they are trying to rip off the popularity of a pizza brand called Heaven's Bistro. WW's who have access to them LOVE them. I've never had. I hear it's mostly a West coast thing, but are making their way East.
----Also (sheesh! There's more?
) saw in the newest issue of WW mag that WW has a Skinny Cow knock off, too. Same packaging and everything!! Boy, they must hate it that WW members LOVE products that aren't theirs so they copy it! Heck, if it tastes good and is CHEAPER than the Skinny Cows, I'll buy those. SC's are expensive!!
OK, that's it for now (I know, you're all sighing with relief by now, right
) but WHERE THE HECK IS EVERYONE ELSE??? HMMM???
