Many of you may remember a previous thread of mine. What would you pay for this mare...?
Fast forward a few months, circumstances change. The mare is now officially mine.
I've kept this under wraps for the past few weeks (I've been just DYING to post this thread) but I was not sure everything would fall into place. (Convincing my dad I need a new horse while we have a baby due in March...
) He's still not happy about it, but knows I'm paying for vet, farrier, hay, bedding, grain, entry fees etc for my other mare and my lease mare.
I will be sending her to a trainer in about 10 days. She's still "green" under saddle. Just doesn't have the buttons that I would like. I could train her myself, but, I'd love professional training under her. Plus, I can get some lessons while she is there to improve my riding as well.
I'm renaming her Rumor. I thought Bitty was just too...childish for how elegant of a mare that she is. She is 5 years old, will turn 6 in March.
I am very excited...But without further ado...Here are PICTURES!
