Thanks AB! She really is!
I talked with her former owner again last night and found out some VERY interesting things!
1 - They bought her 12 years ago from a trail riding camp where she had been for several years and was being used for hour long guided tours.
2 - She's been shown both English and Western in 4H.
3 - She was handed down by a set of brothers and sisters over the years. Whomever had a child who was old enough to ride was the one that got her. She made her rounds with the family for 12 years.
4 - She has been under regular farrier care although it was what a feared. A jack-of-all-trades one. Prior to this gentleman getting her, she had a near founder episode hence the band on her foot. Her owner was having her feet trimmed only every 8-10 weeks as she was becoming lame after each trim. His other horses weren't doing that so he just thought she had sensitive feet. At least we are getting her squared away now!
5 - In the 12 years they owned her, she never kicked, bucked, reared, etc. Said she was the perfect horse.
I will be sending him photos and he's asked to bring his wife to visit her some time as they are both still attached to her. I'm still just so lucky to have found her!
