She's stunning! I sure hope you get her! Would love to watch her grow like I have with Rafe and Taz!!!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

She is very pretty. These are feral quarter horses,?

Wow, she's a pretty girl. I can see why you like her. Those are some fat and healthy looking strays. Not like the wild ones we see around here. Any idea how tall Momma is?

PD, me too. It would be such a change though dealing with a normal sized weanling instead of monstrous ones like I'm used to. I was looking at her feet and legs while I was out there and I caught myself thinking "My God her legs are dinky"...then I remembered that she's not half draft.

Tiny, for the most part. Apparently, there was at least one pinto in there at some point to explain the blue eye and the belly splash, but either way, they are just stock horse type. Nothing exotic like Arab or TB in there that I know of .

Fly, I doubt there are any of those horses out there taller than 15 hands. I would guess momma closer to 14. Just about the right size LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Oooh, low rider just the way I like em. I'm only a quick road trip through the desert if you don't like her.

LOL, fly, even if I do like her, there are at least 2 others her age out there right now. I honestly don't remember what they looked like though, because they weren't as eye-catching as she is. I seem to recall that there was a chestnut colt with a stripe face but I can't be certain. Maybe next time I go out, the whole herd will be there.

I like her. I think that you should get her and a couple of the other fillies to keep her company!

Celeste, if only I could, I would. Sadly, I just don't have room for any more than just her. She'll just have to make friends with Dobe...and eventually Rafe and Taz and all the rest out in the big pasture (after she is broke enough where I can walk up and catch her anyway).

I agree with everyone (not difficult on this one, is it) - nice-looking girl! Waiting for pics of her at home with your boys, now...
