I always keep an eye open for a second fjord. I shouldn’t but I do I have come across one that fits the bill; all around good citizen, gelding, in good shape and health, is close enough that I could go get him. My partner isn’t super into riding but this horse would be a good fit if he wanted to give it a try and join me on trails.
Hesitations include his age; he will be 20 next year which could be more to manage health wise at any given time. And of course my budget. I am pretty happy where I am at and the board is extremely reasonable. My biggest worry is that if or when I ever needed to find a new boarding barn, I would need 2 stalls available and the cost could easily double what I am paying now. What I am paying now still would leave me some wiggle room to save and spend, but if we double that anytime soon, that would make things tight. I also worry that my first is very used to being an Only Pony and getting all of my attention and I don’t know how a second would or wouldn’t alter that either!
