I've turned them down for one reason or another; usually due to financial constraints.
One of the horses, Lady, went to my mother and is doing very well.

The crazy thing is that every single horse that's been offered has been under the age of 10, either registered or of a good quality and all but one are broke to saddle and well behaved. These are horses that have a market, albeit a small one. They are all but one, stock horses. One was a beautiful Morgan mare whose registration and heritage were lost. Getting that information would be next to impossible.
Most recently offered, just this week actually, are two registered Quarter Horse mares. One is 5, one 12. The 12 year old is saddle broke and according to her owner, a very nice horse. The other, is green broke but very sweet. Both are over 15hh and registered. They are being given away because their owner has lost his job and is about to lose his house through short sale. My mom and I are going out to look at them on Sunday; I will be sure to take lots of pictures and find out more about them. Sheesh! My entire life I've waited for someone to just give me a horse, ANY horse, and now that I can't really have one...they're literally falling into my lap every time I turn around.
To be continued on Monday (I'll have pictures and more information)..........................
