I found my horse! I am so excited! I'm still waiting to see some video, but I'm pretty positive he's the guy. He's a 5 year old gelding from the Sheepshead HMA in Oregon. He is a TIP horse (basically trainers get paid to gentle the horse and get it adopted out) that I originally saw earlier this winter, but we were snowed in and then it looked like he'd been adopted. He was supposed to go to Texas but the hauler backed out.
Anyway, after I decided I wasn't going on my trip, I posted to a mustang group on Facebook that I am actively looking for a horse, and this guy got re-posted. I LOVE his face.
I am so stinking excited. I couldn't even eat my dinner.
He's near Portland, OR, which is farther than I really want to go, but we're trying to work out a way to meet part way. I think she will probably meet me in The Dalles. That'd knock about 4 hours off the round trip, so that would be very nice!
I want to go get him tomorrow. That's probably not at all reasonable, asking her to drop everything and head out. Hopefully soon though. Cross your fingers for me!
