It's still early, if it's a stable she may still be doing chores.

I did not know the Sparrow Hawk was a Kestrel! He is so darn quick in swooping in that all we see is this flash of copper/ brown from under his wings as he lifts up with a poor finches from the feeder. We haven't been able to identify exactly the kind of hawk he is - but I always said I thought he was a little falcon.

My first package arrived today - an eggbutt snaffle. I'm thinking I may use it for lower level dressage, she seems to like them better than the D rings. Hubby commented how pretty it was...gotta love that he thinks tack is pretty

Haha Your daughter is a lovely girl, by the way :)
Thank you. That was 4 years ago she is growing up to be a beautiful woman :0) proud mamma

CW, so glad to hear that you liked Belle! I am going to chime in to support you in your decision not to sign a lease until you've seen her ridden by the owner or ridden her yourself. In my opinion, a good owner would want to see how you handled her, and would understand that you needed to ride her before signing the lease. After all, you want to ride, not to train a project horse! If she's not responding to you, maybe you could call or e-mail with some compliments about how much you liked her, loved her color, etc., so that the owner knew you were still serious about leasing the horse.

I agree that her grumpy face doesn't necessarily mean that she won't be good under saddle. It just means that she doesn't seem to be an outgoing horse - or maybe didn't know what a camera was! You will win her over in time, I'm sure, as long as she's not truly mean or ill-mannered!

like the owner said in the post she needs to warm up to the person
Riding her, she seems to be laid back in her stall more interested in her food
