I spent about an hour at the barn today... I lunged her a little, and she's definitely not lame at all. She does need her feet done though!
I spent about 30 minutes just brushing her mane and tail.. and goodness she is gorgeous! Her mane is so long... and her tail... so full... She's stunning, really!!
I'm thinking the name Tika doesn't suit her much after all. I'm not sure, but I think I need to keep looking for a name.
I'm not sure if there's a horse named Abbervail Dream or not actually... I saw the name on a horse names site and liked it... I think it suits my mare too...
Morgans are WELL known for their gourgous full and long manes and tails. I've spent soooo many hours just grooming morgans.... even though I knew the instant I was done they'd go find a mud puddle to roll in....... :roll:
Haha my filly (Morgan) has a gorgeous mane and tail. When I got her it was touching the ground, and it had been down all summer. I put it up in Janurary, so I think I have at least two inches more now! She has a very thick mane and tail, at least compared to my gelding. I pull my gelding's mane (which kills me, since I love flowing manes and tails) because he rubs the middle out, and it just looks better if its all the same length and thickness. He has a lovely tail though. =]
Of course, my trainer always says "it's pretty sad if the nicest thing someone can say about their horse is they have a nice mane and tail." LOL (in other words, if someone can't find anything more substantiative to say about their horse like how calm, what a decent mover, how sweet, etc. then chances are there is nothing nice to say about the horse. =p) I think its funny,
Good Luck Finding a name! If I think of anything cute, I'll send it your way! I'm glad Morgan Mania is infiltrating Canada (even crossbred =])
Haha well I'm sure I could rattle off a whole list of things I like about her, but it just so happened that I decided to tackle her mane and tail (very ratty) today, and they turned out looking very good :)
