vida - i sure do need one of those heavy duty cameras.
she is a little sun bleached at the moment because she hasnt been rugged but with some cover up and some mollasses in her feed she should darken up and then the contrast will be even prettier :) im in love lol
lol a bargain she is. she doesnt have a stable name though really. the people who had her before this guy just called her 'miss' but she doesnt respond to it even though theyve been calling her that anyways. her racing name is miss papal. her daddy was an imported stallion from the U.S. but i cant remember his name off hand. im going to do a name thread for name ideas :)
appy - i think possum will be less than impressed. shes a mummys girl and she is going to have to learn to share now. possum isnt really the sharing type lol but im sure jarred will appreciate her
he does like the ladies lol
gypsy - yup! sometimes its all just about being in the right place at the right time
jubilee - thank you ;)
ill try and get some pics soon. i got a couple on my phone today but now i cant find the stupid cord to attach the phone to the computer. i have the worst luck with technology lol
i went and rode her today and shes a bit of a handful lol i think its mainly due to the fact that shes is on workhorse feed but isnt really getting worked. and shes fat lol seriously the fattest tb i have ever seen hehe she had lots of sillies to get out. you can tell she hasnt had much work since she came off the track. they did tell me that though.
she has no idea about yielding or anything so ive got my work cut out for me. i guess there will be a thread about that too lol
but i have bought her!!! although she was silly today she wasnt nasty. you could feel it was all just energy and a lack of education which is all easily fixed.
because she had so many beans i decided to lunge her to see all her gaits both ways. OMG she was brilliant. i took the reins off and put the stirrups up and asked her to move out to see how she would lunge. she trotted off and basically lunged herself. i stood there in the middle while she trotted for a couple of minutes and then cantered for a minute or so. i put my arm out and said 'whoah' and she stopped dead and looked at me. so cute. she was so willing just standing there waiting for what i was going to ask her next. i wanted to see her go the other way because i figured she might be pretty one sided. i came around behind her, she turned around and started trotting around the other way. i said 'canter' she cantered. i said trot she trotted. she was brilliant.
even though it was a little rough under the saddle i can see there is no malice behind it and she is smart aaaaaand willing and full of hot feed right now lol aside from the sillies thats a pretty good combo to me so i went ahead and bought her. usually i take longer to decide such things but sometimes you just know and you dont need any more time to think.
i had a friend come with me who knows horses and she said from the ground she looked lovely. even though she was being silly she was very naturally holding herself well.
oo oo and, she perfectly proportioned for a tb. her back is actually the perfect length. shes compact and sturdy and shes got great feet for a tb and...
im sorry!!! im just so excited im spilling it all out here lol rich has gone to sleep early and i cant ramble to him now so you guys are getting it lol
ill get some pics up as soon as i can get some pics of her or find my phone to pc cable
