Thought I'd share this with you. A lady sent up a 2 yr old for me to train this summer. I kept her most of the summer. The lady (who is also a friend of mine) decided she wanted to sell her and offered me a % if I would sell her. I had a couple drive a few hours to come see her. I was very direct and upfront in my ad regarding how she was and how she was trained. They kept telling me they just couldn't believe she was a 2 yr old because she was so quiet and mellow. They even made mention, "is she drugged?" I was horrified. I told them no, that this was just her nature. (she let my two children ages 14 and 17 ride her all summer long) She was just a real quiet filly.
So it can happen that this mare is just a quiet type mare. It can happen.
Ps. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
