Because it's too common and doesn't suit her :) I decided her paddock name and then thought about show names, and nothing with "Magic" in it fit. My favourite out of all of them was Sumkindamagic (yes I have a thing for show names like that, that run together - favourite event horse is Megan Jones's Kirby Park Allofasudden) and then Mum started suggesting random myth and legend characters. She suggested Icarus, who flew too close to the sun and his wings melted... and I thought, OMG. Perfect. Too Close To The Sun. Too Close To Da Sun. 2close2dasun. The other options for the same name are far too long!

Now, pictures

She was all but untouchable when I got her home. Unloaded her from the trailer, and she was ok (but had a halter on already, and a lead). Put her in the round pen and let her go. Went to talk to her when we put the hay in her yard and it took me ten minutes to be able to so much as lay a finger on her for an instant.

One day, and several short sessions, later...




I am 161cm... about 5'2" or 5'3". She is BIG.

Edit to add; she didn't like me touching her flank, decided she was too scared and couldn't handle it so she left. No running away, no bolting, no kicking. She just left. She's SO quiet, even when she's terrified she just sort of goes away from the scary thing.

Super excited i finally found a horse i can really do barrels on. She is a 6 yr old buckskin quarter horse mare. She acts like she's seen the pattern before but we are doing some finessing on moving off my leg and stepping over. Will be taking her to her first actual run hopefully in october. Im helping her ownet who is going through multiple face surgeries by leasing her and i get to do anything i want with her even going to use her for my senior pictures lol.

Oh wow she is lovely, definitely got that look of speed about her! My TB is from slow bloodlines and my Anglo is getting on a bit so I can't see myself getting into barrel racing any time soon... darn shame because what little of it I have tried has been bunches of fun! Got a friend with a little Appy who wants to try barrels with him, or else cutting.
