I am in the market right now, trying to find a horse, smallish, quiet if possible, willing at the very least. I am getting rid of the pony mare because (big shock here) my stepson lost interest when he learned you have to groom them and tack them up. She is a great little gal, but she needs a job to do and I just can't keep up the interest in ground work forever. Besides, the filly is going to need a trail buddy before long and I need to be spending time with butt in saddle to be ready to ride her in the spring.
I found an ad for a solid App mare, 14.1, green but good on trails. They say she is a bit people shy and hard to catch, but I am okay with a few glitches. I prefer them a bit green since I am very particular about how my horses ride and I like to do that work myself.
I wish I had better shots of her, but I would like a little feedback before I set up a time to go see her. Does anyone see anything that I should pay close attention to when I see her in person?
Here are the best of the pics they sent me of her.
