My little mare

So I'm brand new to this site .. and thought I'd put up some photos of my little gray mare. I know she isn't a looker .. and I don't have any good photos of me riding her, possibly none at all, considering no one is ever at the barn when I am :( But here are some randoms from the little over year I've been leasing her.


Looking pretty ..I guess. This was early last year when I had first started working with her. Back when she reared and bucked and didn't do anything good, except move like a superstar ;) She's improved SO much over the past year it's shocking.


Just this fall .. probably in October


Hanging out in a field .. looking dirty and fat. My bad.


So this was a huge breakthrough for us. It is amazing she's stroll around in a halter and lead and not try to kill me and the people on the ground. She can w/t/c sans bridle these days :)


I love her. And that's all I'll post for now as I'm sure you've seen more than enough of my ugly little mare ;)

Hahaha thanks .. I love her. I say ugly with love. She's just built all that nicely, though her puppy dog personality and nice movement sure makes up for it. I'll have to get someone out to videotape me at some point in my life :( haha, the only people who would would be my mother or my boyfriend and they are both deathly allergic to horses.

Not a looker?! She is BEAUTIFUL!!! There's a gray just like this at my barn and he is absolutely stunning (he's my trainer's horse)! Besides Buckskins - which of course I am partial to! , my favorite are grays! I took lessons on "Gabe" my trainer's gray for a long time, before I got Sandie, here's a pic of him -- they are beautiful horses!!



I especially love the grays with the darker mane like yours has...I just think grays almost look magical! Don't they remind you of the unicorns you'd see in movies as a little kid?

Awww.. thanks for that :) She is really cute and adorable and has the BEST personality on the ground and she's [obviously] really coming along under saddle! I suppose when I say she's not too good looking I mean conformation-wise hahaha and that gray has smaller ears than Shy I thin!
