HHW: Day 2 – What Do I Want?
Sunday was our day to chat with a trainer from another part of the state [HHP]. She very sensibly asked what I was looking for. Ultimately, I am looking for a horse. Right now, I would settle for a short answer to that question.
The one thing the poor woman didn’t want was my life history. Unfortunately, that is exactly what I spewed out. I was wearing a Rolex hat, so I found myself going back to the purchase of Previous Horse and explaining his lack of interest in eventing. That was 23 years ago. No matter how much one consolidates, a story that spills into three decades is too long.
What she wanted to hear was:
A talented young horse that I can bring along.
A reliable older horse that can pack me around.
Both is not an option.
When you horse (cat, dog, spouse) shopped, did you go after a list of specific attributes or did you know the right one when you met?
Gratuitous Kitten Pic
Cat shaming or an object lesson in getting the groceries put away immediately?
BTW, the chicken pieces are for Senior Cat, so no harm done.
