The bank signed the contract on the new place-Whew! Now it's time to move on to the home inspection and appraisal. Financing is being worked on. Not overly worried about that, but it will be considered a 2nd Home, so hopefully the broker will find a decent loan for it. The market is not good enough to place our current home for sale, so we will have to hold onto it until things improve. If MH decides he wants to sell at all. He is very fond of this place and he just had his dream shop built on it...isn't that just the way it goes?
It's not like the new place is ready to move into anyway. I didn't really think MH wanted to, but after we have been over there a couple of times, I think the thought of moving is growing on him. It's going to take LOTS and LOTS of cleaning though!!!!
I am trying not to get ahead of myself, but I couldn't resist making up lists...
Of course, we will move the 5 head I have here over there as soon as we close on the property.
This summer, Shooter and maybe Beretta will go back to the ranch in SD.
Moon and Frosty will stay with me.
Strawberry will stay with Megan.
These two will come out as soon as I can get it arranged...
VooDoo above ^^^.
Megan will be bringing Spooks...
And I made a phone call the other day! I have been wondering what is up with another gelding we raised. He is Moon's 1/2 brother(same dam). I know that his owner has been wanting to sell him for the last year. If I could have arranged it, I would have bought him last year. I guess I should have figured how to get that done, cause he is going to cost me twice as much to bring home this year...If I get too!
Oh well, he is sooo worth it...
Pistol will be for Megan...and maybe as a back-up horse for me.;-)
There is another gal currently looking at Pistol. It just so happened that I called the day before she was scheduled to show up to try him out. Pistol's owner said if I had not called she probably would have sold Pistol to that girl without reservations. But since I called, she said she would only sell him to her if it seemed like a perfect match.
It's gonna be tough, with everything else going on, to come up with the $$ to get him bought. Sheez! But Meg needs a nice solid horse to run barrels on this year. She just doesn't know what it feels like to ride a free running horse and unfortunately for her...I'm not about to share mine-LOL. Not that I think Meg would mess Moon up, but darn it! He's mine!!!
If we don't get Pistol back, Meg will have to settle for big Leo...
A nice enough horse to run barrels on...and competitive...it's just that we all hate riding this rough sucker on a daily basis.
Well, that's the First String...stay tuned...I've got them ALL sorted out into bunches-heeheehee
