Oops... Went to an auction and came home with a horse
I did not want, or need another horse. However, I have always wanted a grulla, but as I don't typically buy for color, I've ended up with a bunch of bays. At a recent sale there were a few grade babies that looked very nice, and prices were low, even for nicely built, colored ones. Several went to the meat buyer, in fact the majority of the horses there went that way. My BO was thinking of buying a couple babies to play with over the winter, when its too icy for riding we can be working with them in the barn. It was too good of a deal to pass up, she got a palomino and a very flashy chestnut, and I got - Fuzz bucket. Grulla filly, 5 months old, obviously quarter horse but no papers. She is a bold, defiant little thing, never been handled. Looking closely at her face, I wonder if she is grey as well as grulla, we'll see next spring I guess.
The general consensus around the barn is that I should call her Sage, but I'm not convinced it quite fits. The first time I went to work with them, I discovered the other two were very quiet and obviously played with before. As for my little girl, she was a bit of a handful I expected fear, but she is just plain rebellious, determined and willful. I'll take my time, and we'll get there, but at the moment she's a little, um, interesting to work with. Without further ado, my new girl:
