Well this morning I got a call from Doug and he wants me to take Kali home cause he doesn't think she will turn out. He figures she is very cowy, just not athletic enough to be competitive. So I will go pick her up next week and decide from there what I will do with her. He figures I should buy either a good 2 year old and train it up or an older horse and just go cutting. Either way will be expensive I guess I gotta decide how much I am willing to spend to cut now.
I am kinda sad about this, but yet glad that he says so now with 6 weeks rather than waiting forever and just still not turning out. I may just keep her till spring and ride her and then sell her as a well broke Dual Pep daughter. Her bloodlines should be worth quite a it although it woulda been better is she woulda done something, but I am hoping I may get what I paid out of her. Or I sell Razz to Doug as a start on buying a broke horse. So many decisions to make.
I don't know how much I can spend but a broke horse probly isn't in my budget for this year, might just have to ride what I have and sell a couple and then we will see next year. Or save all the money that woulda gone into training and more and build my arena. (which will take more than this years earnings too) but wont be as fun if I don't have a good horse to ride in the arena.
In other news, I am almost done my Christmas shopping, might go tomorrow or Wednesday somewhere with Linda and spending Christmas Eve with Neils family and Christmas Day with my family. And we were planning on going to the movies with an old friend and her kids this week, but her oldest broke his thumb snowboarding so not sure if that will happen this week either.
Since I told Char this morning, we looked at this gelding, and she found this mare (Look down to Justa Indian Maiden). Both outta my price range but still kinda fun to look even if I have no intention of buying right now. It is still nice to know what is out there. I will be pretty pciky this time around so it might take a while to find what I like to ride and will be right for me.
