Sad news: I received an e-mail from a very nice lady who I used to take lessons from. She is turning 70 in July and has decided to transfer managership of the farm to someone else, and sell most of her horses.
Thrilling news: She has offered to sell to me her youngster, Ringmaster. I've been riding him for the past two years and we've clicked somewhat (lol). She knows I cannot afford to take care of him (as in pay for board, vet bills, etc etc), so she has offered to sell him to me when I graduate from college. As in, less than two years from now. I'm so excited! I still need to talk it over with her, but Mom and I were talking today and we both really loved the idea. :)
