    When we decided to sell Fergie, the plan was to bank her money, and the money I saved on boarding, then when I was recovered from my knee replacement we could shop for another horse for me. Coach warned that we should start looking as unicorns are hard to find...

    Next evening I got a message from a lady that I only know because she wanted to buy a horse from me years ago, that deal never happened but we stayed friends. She linked me to a warmblood mare, and I admit my first thought was no! But I sent the info to my coach and she loved her....so I guess we ended up buying a Warmblood!

    Her name is currently Stella, which I must admit is growing on me, she is an 11 year old, 16.1hh Hungarian Warmblood, also a registered Canadian Sports Horse. She is very low mileage, looks green rather than messed with, but appears to have a very sweet nature. In the end I got a good price on her, and a real killer of a fill rate in a trailer coming this way next week.

    My coaches mum is already horrified that I intend to put a Western Saddle on her :LOL:

    We have two plans in place, the trainer is going to put 60 days on her over the next 3 months, and by then, we will know if she will work for me, and hopefully I’ll be fit to ride again. If she is not a match, or it looks like I have a long recovery, then we believe that i’ll Be able to recover my costs and maybe even make something on her.

    I be liking the looks of this mare. She may well be incentive for a good recovery for you, Moosey!

    For her name, all I hear is “STELLA!” From Tennessee Williams “A Street Car Named Desire!” Don’t change, I love it.

    Out....could be the reason I change it. She is registered as HPB Treasure, which isn’t exciting at all.

    Lol, I do hope so, she wears the same size, so will have to start off with Fergies remnants, fortunately the main Winter one survived In more or less one piece, but she will have to start off in a repaired one.

    Congratulations. She is lovely. I hope she is much easier and works out well for you.

    I think the name Stella is popular again. Not sure I would keep it though.
