I don't know if this is the correct forum for this, but anyways. Many will be familiar with my girl Pickles. I have unfortunately fallen in love with a mare of my BO's that is very well suited to what I do, and its either let the mare be sold, or sell pickles and buy her my self, and I have come to the conclusion that Pickles needs to go. Here is her info, I would love some oppinions on price. Prices in my area are fairly high:
-Registered appaloosa "docs sonata dream", she has some very good bloodlines top and bottom.
All appy characteristics, slowly starting to varnish roan, just no spots.
stands 15 ish(need to measure) hh, turns four in June.
Extremely willing, curios, friendly and sweet. Barn favorite, in your pocket type. Not a mean or marish bone in her body, with people or other animals. Great in a herd, loves kids, can be handled by anyone. Easy keeper, great for the farrier, fantastic to deworm, stands for shots.
She is very easy to catch(she'll usually find you), not herd bound or barn sour at all, great to work with alone or with others. Leads, ties great, loads, good around cars and machinery, goats, minis, donkeys, dogs and cats. Stands quietly to be saddled, bridled and mounted. Ground drives very well on and off property. Round pens, lunges, yields well.
Been ridden about ten times w/t, in a western saddle and snaffle or bareback in a halter. Never offered to buck, bolt, rear, kick or spook under any circumstances.
I can't stress it enough, this is a nice, NICE mare, that will make an incredible saddle horse. I can see her being very versatile and excelling in a number of disciplines.
as soon as the footing here improves her training will continue.
