She lived on the the track her whole life, so she is off the track, no?
I've learned a little more about her. I received her papers, and though there are no race records on her papers I talked to her trainer and I was told she DID race, just never placed. I have no idea how that works, or what to believe. She has no races on her record, but I was told she did race. I know nothing about that. From what i was told, I'm assuming you have to place for it to go on the record?
At any rate, I did some research and stumbled upon an article. Apparently stormy was the last foal her **** had, before she showed up at the auction and was saved from slaughter by Another Chance 4 Horses rescue. :( So sad.
In other news: Yesterday Stormy and I had a nice ride, we butted heads for the first time! It was actually kind of exciting, it's been too easy so far. She has started to become slightly barn sour, but nothing unmanageable and we're gonna nip it in the bud right away. Just your general "I'm-gonna-sort-of-walk-sideways-towards-the-barn-and-hope-you-don't-notice" thing. I'm giving her a day off today from everything (i've been lunging her at the very least every day) because i'm exhausted myself and have a lot of other non-horsey crap to take care of.
She's great, i love her. She's a beast. As to her size - I'm normally one to stay under 16 hands at all times (lucky to go above 15 lol), but well... i'm making it work. I'm only 5'1.
