My new girl :)

I love Welsh ponies. I LOVE the stallion Rocko's Gold.
I love Arabs and many arab crosses, especially with ponies. My favorite arab cross is a Welara, a Welsh/Arab cross. So of course a Rocko's Gold Welara would be fabulous for me.

And what did I happen to find not too far from me for sale? Yup, a half arab (registered with AHA) by Rocko's Gold! She also has paperwork to send in to be registered with the Welsh Pony Society as half Welsh, the American Welara Pony Registry, and the American Sport Pony Registry.

Now, Craig implemented a "no more buying animals" ban on me. That was the deal for me to get Keno, my puppy. Although Craig did go against that and let me buy my zorse because he thought that would be cool haha ;) Anyhow, my ban does not restrict me from trading animals. So I offered to trade Shakespeare (mini colt weanling I have for sale) for her. No go, but maybe a filly... so I offered Destiny (yearling filly I had for sale). She was a maybe. I offered to bring her with me when I went out to see the Welara filly.

And for both parties, it was love at first sight :) Destiny is going to be a spoiled mini amongst an Arab breeder's full size horses haha! (not in with them though). She can't wait for her grandkids to see her :) And the Welara is going to be my show filly for Arab shows (too bad half her mane is rubbed out, that makes Arab halter difficult! Hope it grows quick!)

So without further ado, I'm please to introduce Mysti River Gold! She was called Mysti, but I've always loved the name River for a horse, so that's what I"m going to call her :) Sorry for the not so good photos, took this on my phone when I got home. Since it's my work week, I had to give up a few hours of sleep to go see her, bring her home, get her settled. Then, bed time (I work nights), get up and quickly have a tiny bite to eat and change and go to work! So better pics have to wait until next week.

Yeah, she has a little wound on her head, not bad just a scrape.

She kept following me around, so hard to take a face shot, but I wanted to show her neat markings (at least, I like it!)

This photo is one the lady sent me so a little older

I put her in a stall I have that shares the fence to my big horse area so she can get to know the other horses. They of course had to go check her out. Braveheart (Arab gelding) was a NUT about her lol. They were all running and bucking because there was a new horse. Too bad I didnt have my camera with me!

She's a yearling. I haven't measured her, so not sure how tall she is right now, will have to do so next week. Her dam is supposedly (I say that because I've not seen her) 15h, and Rocko is 13h. I'm hoping she'll end up 13.2-14 as that's my preferred height hehe :)

Thanks! I'm so happy to have her! :)
Here is her sire's website: Rocko's Gold more information I don't like the jumping photo they have on the front page... He looks much nicer o/f on the picture page ;)

And yup, my friend in Texas came across two zorses, she bought one and I bought the other ;) They're both with her, she's working with mine and when she has him broke to ride I"ll have him hauled to me. I have pics on my photobucket account, but photobucket is blocked at work. But you can get to them through my website on the "horses" then "other horses" page, he's at the bottom.
