I got my first horse from a woman who's daughter had horses and I didn't think I was going to get one of the horses but I decided to humor myself and cheak her out.
When I got there it was pouring down rain and I was lucky she had and indoor arena. The woman had two horses to sell. One was a red roan mare about 6 or 7 years old named Pheonix. The other was a bay solid Paint mare named Belle with a wicked mark on her face and she was 3.
The woman saddled up Pheonix and didn't say much about Belle becuase she figured a 3 year old filly wasn't what I wanted and she thought I should have Pheonix.
I rode Pheonix for a while and she was a nice horse but it wasn't...right.
I kept looking at Belle and I asked if I could ride her. So the women nodded and took her out. I remember the sun that shown on her red bay coat made her look like a brand new copper penny.
I got up on her back and rode around for a while and as soon as I cued her to lope, she went real fast and I just knew this was the horse for me.
I bought Belle shortly after I tried her. It was so cute, when I had to decide if I wanted her or not she kept licking my arm as if to say, "Buy me! Buy me!"
Her name is Cowboys Plain Janie but her last owner called her Belle so I just call her Janie Belle!
