Alright, so the reason I was out looking at barns was primarily just to get an idea of what's in the area.  What provoked this was a mare that my coach would really like me to look at.  The mare, Cadence (not sure about spelling), is beyond gorgeous.  She's a 16h light bay TB x (Trakehner, I think) and man can she jump!  Her owner showed me a video of her free jumping a 3' ish oxer, and while she jumps around 4' in her front end, her back end's hitting 6'!  Her owner did mention that her jump isn't that big when you're on her. Thank god! Absolutely gorgeous mare, but my (and my coach's) main concern is would she be big enough.  Anyhow, she's a ways away, but I'd like to get out and see her over the Christmas holidays.  The only other concern I have, is what would happen to Arty?  If buying a horse would mean I couldn't ride/see/spoil him any more, then I don't think I could commit to that.  Maybe I'm being selfish, but I honestly don't think I could live without my pony.  He's my rock, my heart, and my soul.  However, I think we could learn to share...
