So when I got Gen I knew he had tendon issues. I didn't care though because Gen picked me and I knew I couldn't say no to him. Lucky has issues also because of her conformation and her owner wants to give her to me. It would be hard to afford two horses, and I just can't justify the risk of owning two retired horses. I guess what I am trying to say is...there are a lot of horses out there. I am going horse hunting with a friend on Thursday and she only started looking last weekend. With so many wonderful horses out there, why rush in to something that could cause you stress instead of give you joy. It is not like you have been horseless for a year or anything. If I were you I would wait and see what else comes along. He wasn't perfect for you, so maybe this is a sign that you deserve better. Maybe your dream horse is still out there waiting for you to find him or her?
