My new prospect...

Everyone - meet my new girl - just wrote the check and she will be coming in a couple weeks.

Her registered name is Just Say Tracy - though I will be changing it - haven't decided on what to yet -

She is by Just Say Jose and out of a mare named Traces of Lace - her full brother, Just a Trace, won pinto worlds this year in western pleasure. She is a three year old - coming 4 - and had 4 months under saddle then turned out to pasture to grow. They pulled her in, brushed her off, and got on.. so this is what she is like after several months on pasture...

She is a very quiet, very relaxed mare that has the hard work done - looking forward to bringing her home and getting started. I am really excited, I sold Ivy as she was just a reactive mare who was just not turning out as I needed for show... this mare will hopefully eventually be my daughter (now 7)'s youth show horse.. until then I will show her western events. She is just 15 hands, so I'll only do western events with her as she will look pretty tiny in english events...

What do you all think?

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? :)

She sure is lovely. Nice choice. Beautiful coat pattern and what a doll when she was a baby! Best of luck!

PS - name suggestions welcome:

My Short list:

Cuervo Got Me Laced
Lace Reflection
Trace of Grace
Just All in Lace


Barn name - maybe Lacey (obvious but common)
Dory - going to be a youth mare, so fitting...

Not sold on anything yet - got some suggestions?

She reminds me of the name Paris for some reason. Anyways, she is so gorgeous! She looks like she has lots of potential to be a kids horse.

On your short list I like the first one and second one, I also like Just N Lace for some reason.
