Talking Our first horse :)

This is Patches, she came to us this Tuesday in need of a new home, owner needed to down size his heard and therefore handed her to us for free. =] Since we were looking for our first horse this really seemed like a godsend.
She is a registered quarterhorse paint, under the name Witches Ice Tea, from Alabama :)
She is 8yrs old and about 15.2hands. She will be my bf's horse! One blue eye and one brown she is a very pretty horse, and we think a very good fit for him. Its very evident she responds to him better than I and size wise will suit him best. We could not be more excited as this is our first horse ever. I will be attaining one for myself soon :) Looking forward to getting into the life I once lived and have dreamed about since birth!!!!

She's pretty. Is she a little under weight?

Thanks guys! Shutupjoe -- she may be. The person we got her from was having a hard time keeping all of them up. Patches is about a 1200lb horse who potentially could be heaftier in the summer.. the place she was didn't have alot of grazing, and where she is heading now she will have endless supplies of grass, hay and occasional sweet feed.. even in the winter months the extra large pasture she is going too has plenty of grass. Hopfully we'll thicken her up a bit.

So I can tell! Especially pasture kept. The color isn't a big deal for me, more so the personality and she has a good one. My BF is out riding her now and says she is doing fantastic :) Thanks again!

I can't wait to see her clean and shiny in her summer coat! She's a doll!

Thank you all! We can't wait to get her all cleaned up either!! She's going to need a good scrubing as she came from a muddy pasture! We'll have her in a very grassy area so hopefully it won't be as bad.
I am very blessed that my BF and I share that passion.. its funny, I've known him for 10yrs and we've dated for over 3 and JUST now discovered how deep our shared passion was :) We are looking forward to many adventures :)
-- I guess its harder for guys to find a good fit for them! Everyone except Patches has looked like he was riding a pony :)
