I am very excited about her. Didn't feel bad about moving Ivy down the road - she was just too quick for pleasure, too reactive to be a kids horse, and just a generally difficult mare.
This girl comes from a great barn, was very reasonably priced, and is very quiet and accepting - I love her big soft eye and pretty face - she reminds me of my Whiskey girl... who I will be breeding to Invite the Artist come spring.
This girl will keep me busy in the ring while Whiskey is bred, and by the time my foal is ready for yearling classes, this mare (hopefully) will be ready for my then 10 year old daughter to show on the circuit with me... I am looking forward to doing the color class with her as well as showmanship, trail, and horsemanship.
Here is a pic of her as a baby - isn't she the cutest thing? :)
