I am getting a little MTF 11 year old grulla colored mare on a lease in the morning! I am so excited. I had to give up my boy, Red, due to his anhydrosis. I gave him to a friend that will be doing dressage and not trail riding. It was too hard on him and was hard on me giving him up. My face wouldn't stop leaking.
I tried this little mare last week and liked her. I looked at 7 horses on a 3 day drive looking for a good match. I looked at several TW, SSH, a gaited Morgan and she was the only one I wanted to bring home. She was gentle yet forward, smooth in her movements and calm as could be - a little wiener dog ran under her feet when we were riding and she didn't freak out and neither did I! So, I am sitting in a hotel in Lafayette, La - had a fabulous bowl of gumbo at Prejean's and will pick her up in the morning for a trip to Texas. I will be taking her trail riding this weekend and next weekend. If it works out, I will be the proud owner of a gaited horse. If not, I will be back looking for a trail riding buddy. Here is a pic of me with Shilow last week. The other is the young lady riding her in the sales ad.
