Livestock auction winter about 12 years ago, they brought out a pretty little palamino gelding. My middle daughter, about five at the time wanted to bid- I told her do it once, do it early, no more (thinking I'd let her get the experience in and we'd be done with it). At $320, she let out a loud yelp, and the place went still. Before I knew it- I got 320,340?340?340? sold and we're taking home a horse.
Fast forward a year ahead, we'd spent a winter working with the horse and the girls started to show him. He was a good looking horse. They won talk/trot in the morning with him, and he'd spent an entire day tied to the side of the trailer while they were with other animals. As we were leaving, a woman came up to me and said she had watched that horse all day, she liked the way it had gone and how it looked, and really appreciated how calm he had been all day by himself- would we be interested in selling it? Joking, i said i couldn't take a bit less than 10 grand for him or my wife and girls would kill me. She responded, I'll give you 7 if he vets and you take it in 3 payments.
2 weeks later, she picked up the horse- and she made all three payments on time. wife and daughters wailed like banshees.We used the profit to buy a metal barn, and say that Fritz is the horse that built the farm. Might be the only time I've ever made money on a horse. We've got 11 of em now- it was the beginning of a bad habit.
