    New girl...for real this time...Haha! Needs new name too!

    I promise, I will have tons of new pictures tomorrow...I was too busy playing with her, and getting her settled in this afternoon to go get the camera. I gave her a bath, trimmed her bridle path, and mane, fetlocks, and her front feet. I also took her on a long walk around the campus; she's not really spooky, but she's not really confident about other people coming up to her...she may have been abused at some point.

    Her name is "Bonnie" right now, but I am thinking about renaming her, so feel free to shoot out some ideas!

    She's a 10 year old QH\Walker cross; the only thing really walker-ish about her is her hiney; haha!

    Bonnie is really sweet and pretty calm on the ground, if not a bit scared and unconfident. She is supposedly a bucker undersaddle, and I put my arm over her tonight while messin' around with her, and she got really uncomfortable about it, so I am guessing she may be. My guess is that she was probably simply 'broken in' at some point, because she doesn't even know how to longe. I am actually excited to work with her, because I know that her issue is likely because she just doesn't understand what's expected of her.

    She has amazing movement, and I can't wait until I can get her under saddle again, but I'm not going to push her, as I want her to understand what I want of her, especially because she does really seem to have a sweet sound mind.

    As far as I know she was only trained Western. I'm going to work her toward dressage though.

    I see the front half as a Quarter Horse, and her back half as Walker cause she slopes down like a Walker! LOL

    She's a Sabino, too! :)
    Congrats on the new girl!

    Here's a few more pics.

    Poor thing is so afraid of what might happen to her, she can't even eat grain with you standing there. When I went to pet her good night while she was eating her feed, she jerked back like as if I was going to smack her, and ran to the other side of the pen. I just stood there anyway, and let her realize that I wasn't there to hurt her. She did come back up after a minute or so, and I talked to her, and she finally let me pet her without twitching nervously. She is alot like the boy I lost in May; he was very wary of people when I first got him, but after alot of patience and persistance he turned into one of the calmest easiest horses to work with. Bonnie's not nasty, and I really don't think there is a mean bone in her body, she's just scared out of her mind of what's going to happen to her next.

    I have a walker and a QH, and I NEVER would have thought a cross between the two would turn out so pretty. You are sure lucky to have such a pretty girl!

    I just got my QH, and she is very timid, too...just a little trust-building has worked wonders, so I'm sure you've got a great horse underneath the fear.

    Congrats, she is lovely! I would love to see more pictures when you have time.

    P.S. - Looks like you may have a little TWH "overstep" in her trot...have you gotten a chance to ride her yet? :O)
