I'll wish you luck smile (don't think I can keep everything crossed until other people have tried him!). He sounds lovely.

Keeping everything crossed here too.When will the owner be making a decision?

oooh exciting, he sounds lovely! Will send positive vibes as historically incapable of keeping anything crossed for long

But riding is only a small part of owning a horse.I'd sooner a pony of mine went to someone who genuinely seemed to love them and had the right attitude than a super duper rider.

If it makes you feel better,we took on a lovely loan pony about 2 weeks ago.Until recently we kept our ponies at a private yard that we rented,lovely stables,spotlessly clean,good school ect.For various reasons,we have had to move them to my dad's farm,which is very much a working farm,dogs,cats,livestock,scrap metal,woodpile,tractors ect.We have no stables or school,just a paddock.I was dreading her site visit as I thought that it wouldn't be good enough and we'd be turned down due to lack of facilities ect.But she said it was exactly what she wanted for her pony,a farm home where he can be a proper pony and get used to all sorts of livestock and machinery.People will overlook a lot if they think you are the right person.smile

Fingers crossed !

Fingers crossed here too! I really hope you get him!

Mirage Thu 21-Feb-13 21:02:24

That sounds really good!He wouldn't have done that if he hadn't thought you were a serious contender.A lot rests on whether you and the owner gel well and it sounds like you did.smile

That does sound promising D0G, fingers and toes crossed for you. And no I echo others that say he wouldn't have invited you in for a cuppa and a picture showing if he didn't 'like' you smile.

Have you heard anything yet? Fingers still crossed, but they are starting to go purple, can I uncross them yet? grin

Any news yet D0G? <uncrosses eyes temporarily to write comment confused >

Oh good luck! I have just taken on a new boy in very similar circumstances who I think is going to be a real find . I hope you're as lucky as I think I've been . Riding isn't everything , and that's the easiest thing to improve anyway . And who's to say the other two wont be as nervous ?
