My first horse!

The day has finally arrived. I brought home my very first horse today. She is a 2.5 year old Standardbred mare, bred to pace, but doesn't. She is enormous and still growing. Her name is Capri.

These photos were taken at the Adoption Society that I got her from, I will take new pictures when the rain lets up and I can get her outside without her blankies on.

Thyme and kait18 like this.

Ahhhh congrats! It's such an amazing thing owning your first horse... How tall is she? She's gorgeous!
