Congrats on your new TW mare. There's nothing better than owning a horse. I'm from MI too, where did you purchase her from?
I bought her from Joy Smith, in Hamilton. West of Grand Rapids. She wasn't listed for sale, but I was given Joy's contact info thru a friend who knew she was considering selling this mare.
Color-wise, her papers say she is a bay but my vet and another friend think she's a sun-bleached black. She doesn't have the darker points like a bay, she's really an even dark chocolate color all over her body, with sun-bleached mane and tail.
She's a wonderful horse, we've been having so much fun working together and getting to know each other the past two weeks! I can hardly believe she's mine, I HAVE A HORSE!!!! :) :) :)
