A Special Bond.

Thought I broadcast My life with Tanoka so far. I'm trying to cram a years worth of experiences in a post so...if it's long don't blame me

After being discouraged with Sunglows Shamrock, a now 3 year old Palomino Quarter Horse, my Dad continued to look. He found more Quarter Horses, Quarabs, and many others. He found Tanoka's Debut HP, a 13.2 hand Haflinger mare. 3 years old at the time, Tanoka had been all over Washington and into Oregon.
The Description
We are sadly offering Tanoka for sale. Tanoka has been shown extensively for her young age and knows basic showmanship (trots off, walks, stops, squares up and pivots) At her first show without her mom she won her halter class and the 18 and over showmanship out of 7 horses! In May she was hauled to Redmond Oregon to the Oregon Gold Haflinger show, she won her 2 and under breed class, she got 3rd In the open 2 and under and she placed 4th in her first in hand trail class, this was also her first over night show. She is a great show horse and love the spotlight. She baths, crossties, ties, hauls, lunges and clips like a dream. She has been body clipped and had her head and neck clipped with she was only 3 months old. Tanoka isn?t afraid of anything she goes over tarps and water without hesitation. She has been ponied on thousands of miles of trails all over Washington. I have used her for bringing in my saddle and she could careless about the stirrups hitting her sides. She will be VERY easy to start. Tanoka is very special and brings unique bloodlines to the northwest. Her sire Arno Van Het Nieshof was a Dutch import and 4 time national Champion he was also named SIP stallion of the year (2007). Her dam is out of a Wall street NTF son who was sired by the great Winterstein. Her granddame was also a Dutch import sired by the great Ad Van T Vlier. Her pedigree shines and after her show career she will be a great asset as a broodmare.
So off we went. Top pick up our fist ever horse.

I was smiling from ear to ear as I ran into my soon-to-be first horse's stall and gave her a hug. She brought her head back around and "Hugged Me back." From right then, I knew she was for me. We took off her pale pink blanket to see a clipped mare. We slipped on her halter with jumping horse sketches and took her to the round pen. Samantha (haflingerlover of Hf.com ) lunged her for a while than let me lunge her. After lunging for a while, Noka got her first person on her back EVER. Me.

And so began the life of me and Noka.
I'll share more in a bit
