So I found a yearling that I have absolutely fallen in love with. On his papers are Firewater Flit, High Brow Cat, and Sweet Lil Lena just to name a few. He is bred out the wazoo and they are asking a decent price for him. I mentioned it to my husband and he said no he says we have too many now and 2 of which don't have a "job" (ugh stupid team ropers and their ideas of horses needing a purpose). one of them is a pony that we kind of inherited from the neighbors and the other is my very first horse I ever owned who is 30 now and has more than earned his permanent place with me. my mare that i got as a 2 year old just turned 5 and is now running consistently in the 1d locally so it's time to start a new project. so my question is should I just get rid of the HUSBAND to make more room for the colt??
i'm not one that sees a horse and thinks "i need it" very often, especially a yearling!! i don't know what it is about this little guy but my gut tells me he is going to be NICE! Anyway, there is my dillemma for the day lol.
I attached pictures of him so y'all can admire his beauty with me. i'm such a sucker for those "just a sorrel" horses. my 30 year old is "just a sorrel" and he is the best dang horse i could ever ask for. (these are not my pictures. i saved them from the sale ad but i just couldn't help but share how cute he is!)
I vote get rid of him. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life!
My husband says the same things to me. I told him when my good horse retires in a few years he will be a "cow horse". Meaning he will live out his life with the cows. He didn't see my humor or find that a good idea.

Lol i like the way you think!! My husband thinks if it's retired and doesn't have a "job" it needs to get off our feed bill and grass. My old guy was here long before i met my husband and he will be here long after him if need be lol
So, I'd say get rid of him UNLESS you rely on him for income to support these horses, or any other expenses you couldn't live without. Or he does things, such as housework, work on the property, chores, etc that you don't want to do. And if you do rely on him for any of the above, and cannot repalce him easily, then you sneak the horse into the pasture when he's gone. And when he notices, just act super confused and constantly ask him if he's had head trauma because that horse has definitely been there the whole time
Let me see pictures of the HUSBAND first before I give you my decision... If the husband looks better and is bred better, Keep the husband.

The horse definitely looks better and is bred better lol don't get me wrong, my husband definitely isn't ugly by any means BUT he's not as good looking as a sorrel yearling with those kind of names on his papers hahaha

LOL, All Righty Then!!!!!!!!!!
I say make some kind of Deal with Hubby about this colt, the Colt looks like a keeper and you and Hubby can share

I think sharing a horse with him would cause a divorce faster than me just going buy him lol. He is an old bull rider turned team roper and rides exactly as such! We have to agree to disagree on a lot when it comes to our horses. I care about horses flexing, collecting, working both leads, etc. he cares if they turn left and stop lol

Eehh we make the same amount of money and his entry fees are freaking expensive so i wouldn't be losing much. He does no house work but does a lot of building and fixing around here but i'm sure i could find someone to fill that gap. My dad is still alive and healthy and would pitch in. I mean i say all of this light heartedly joking... kind of LOL!!
This is why I only ride sorrel's with chrome...my husband just thinks he is seeing double...Same horse, different part of the pasture.
Buy the colt and ask for forgiveness later!! LOL
I know the people who own that colt (WONDERFUL WONDERFUL folks).... SUPER future in store for that one and whomever his jockey ends up being!

Oh my goodness you are killing me!! i don't know what it is about this guy but i completely fell in love with him as soon as i saw their post!!
My FAVORITE color is "well-built sorrel" -- it's what I always pick at the horse races too lol He's nice! Hope it works out :)
I don't have any advice - I have a sorrel and a chestnut with similar face markings and my husband gets them mixed up. lol he has to check their eyes - my chestnut mare only has one eye. No, he doesn't "horse" but is super supportive, especially since our daughter (my stepdaughter) has found a passion for horses! OOPS...... LOL
as a team roper - your husband would most likely notice a new horse hanging out in the pasture. Mine would most likely not...
out of curiosity what is it about that pedigree that has you so enamored?

I am a sucker for a running bred and cow bred cross. Just a personal preference I guess
I vote for buy the horse. Hubby can decide for himself whether to go or stay. ??. I'm sort of kidding but I have been told I'm an enabler so sorta not kidding. Lol
My husband always says he'd rather beg for forgiveness than ask for permission... it was all fun and games until I subscribed to that same theory lol! 7 dogs, 4 horses later we discuss things a little more in detail now.
