Meet "Sweet Silver Siren"

This is my "rescue" from this past weekend. Her current papered name is "Maple Springs Tips Silver", but I am changing it to "Sweet Silver Siren", because I just couldn't resist her, no matter what the consequences. "Siren" is a two year old papered Performance Horse. Her sire is a papered TB, and her dam is a grade Appaloosa/Percheron mix. Both parents stand about 16hh, and at two years old, Siren already stands 15.2hh, so I am hoping she'll hit 16hh or more.

I am planning to do a month or so of groundwork with her myself, and then I will be sending her off to a professional trainer. I would like to show in Hunters, so I am hoping her movement and temperament are suitable. She certainly is a delicate mover though.

She's getting quieter everyday, but had a moment or two of sassy fun in the pen (I think I also detect a little bit of stink-eye action too!):

She's beautiful!!...and I love what you're changing her name to!(Also it's alliteration haha sorry poetry buff here) I think she'll do well in hunters just look at her legs haha. They are long but sturdy looking. She also looks like she'd have a nice lope when she's not being silly haha. She looks like a very nice catch good luck with her! =D

What a beauty! I'm sure she'll make a great hunter for you. I love her name, too. Congrats.

She has already improved dramatically from the day we bought her. She also learns very quickly. She had a bad habit of spinning her bum at you when she wanted to get away from you in the stall. So I started to whack her bum with the lead when she turned away - three whacks later and you could see the wheels turning as she quickly BACKED AWAY instead of spinning away. It was hilarious. Last night I took out my dressage whip to help teach boundaries. I was de-sensitizing her to the spray bottle, and she started to paw at me, so she got a tap with the whip on the offending leg. She stopped two taps in. Then she started to lift her back leg and kick the air. So she got a whack on THAT offending leg. Three whacks and she stopped with all leg action and just gave me sour looks.

:) I didn't realize how much I missed having a snitty little mare to play with!
