Surprise!!

Great news everyone! I'm buying My2Geldings horse, Calypso! We brought her home today and I couldn't be more thrilled. She is such a great little filly. Loaded, hauled and unloaded like a dream! I stopped to check on her 5 times on the drive home and everytime she would stick her head out and let me hug her head every time! What a sweet girl! I had to put her in the back pen, the only one that was empty. And she was great when I walked her thru the other pens full of horses, even though they were all mulling her! She has such a calm temperment and really proved it when she didn't even run around while all the other goof balls where.

Anyways here are some pictures of her!!!

Northern Mama, she is sooo good about being in a new home. I've never seen a horse so calm about coming to a new place ever. I went out to see her about two hours after we had been home and she was just eating her hay calm as ever. I'm sooo in love. Me and my hubby are fighting over whose horse she is right now....but I WILL win!

Gem, nope we didn't we met on HF.

Rustic, she is a stunner. I don't think I've ever owned such a good looking horse. I think she is even better looking them my QH, which I love dearly. But I love her draftie look! I will be having tons of fun with her, we already did. We were playing catch with our cookies. I make homemade cookies from Hoffmans minerals, oats and honey and I was chucking them in the snow and she was running to get them...she is far to sweet.

Sorry about such a long post, I'm soo in love with her. I've always wanted a draft horse since I was a little girl reading Billy and Blaze books!

Makes me smile. Thank you for such a great response. It sure sounds like her character. I'm sure she's already coming at the gate when she sees you? That's my baby girl for you. Glad you are already seeing her true colors :)
