Such a pretty girl! Seconding the baucher bit! My OTTB loves hers, and I also am a big fan of rice bran as well to add weight but not hotness.

The plan is to flip her, but if she really turns out to be something special I may hold on to her. We'll see! Everything is for sale for the right price, you know? But if she is super talented I'll try to keep her for as long as I can.

Also, if the french link doesn't work you may want to consider a baucher bit. The bit stays steady in the mouth, and offers cheek pressure when needed. (Contrary to many beliefs, it does NOT have poll pressure and is considered a snaffle.) Good luck with her, she is gorgeous!
Fortunately she's not super hot. I think it's because she's a little underweight right now, haha. I love rice bran and have used it with success to put on weight in the past. So far she's already been gaining weight with just good quality hay available all day and a flake of alfalfa in the morning and evening. The place I keep her at right now is private property of a family I do some work for and all their guys (inc. competition horses) are on SafeChoice (Nutrena) so when she does start on grain she'll start with that and then I'll adjust accordingly.

And I do love the baucher bits. My first horse went in one and was fabulous. I think they have one at the farm I can try on her. I picked up a loose-ring french link yesterday as I left my last one (which was really nice, sadly) in Maryland with Willie where he retired.

Thank you! I'm very fond of her already. She's a sweetheart!

Thank you! And I've seen a number of OTTBs go well in a baucher so it's definitely on my "to try" list if she doesn't like the other bits.
