Meet...My new horse. :-D

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!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thanks! I added her pedigree that's directly on her papers. (I'm in love)

I'm glad you were able to get her! She's a lovely mare and I love her pedigree. She should prove to be quite a ride.

I seldom give a critique after a person has purchased a horse but I will this time.
WOW! There's nothing I don't like about your mare. Great choice.
