Howdy folks! I've been too busy with training my pony's to be around here much, but I felt the need to come share with you my very new (as of a few hours) OTTB!
She's an unraced 4 year old named Stormy Cassette. 16.2 hands. She's out of Storm Bird (Who sired Storm Cat). I was asked through the grapevine, from one person to the next, if I wanted to take this horse.
Supposedly she's gentle and has been ridden by a 15 year old girl (I don't know if I believe that!), but I picked her up this morning directly off the track. She's very well behaved and settled right in almost immediately, and she's a TANK. I didn't see her beforehand, I just wanted to take the horse before he sent her to auction on Monday. I didn't know the first thing about her, just hooked up the trailer and went! I was glad to find that she was unraced, though.
Here she is! Better pictures coming soon. I'm getting ready to sell my mare, she's being picked up tomorrow. Things are a little crazy around here with shuffling around to get her settled. I wish I had been able to get her out in the sun to take good pictures, but now it's raining! She's sooo pretty! I'm quite in love already!
Ever since I loaded her into the trailer, i've been daydreaming of a return to the dressage ring. This coming from the "retired, i'm just going to trail ride" me of the last two years!
