Hi! I'm Kandice from Texas.. A friend of mine just brought her horse home the same weekend and gave me this link. Rosa and Sundance! =]
I brought my very first horse home yesterday. She's a 12 year old paint and her name is Spirit. I fell in love with her over a year ago and my husband and I dreamed of bringing her home and learning everything we could about her and just having my dream come true of having her with us. She was in a very small corral, with no grass and not a lot of attention. She was with my husbands aunt/uncle. My husband passed 9 weeks ago today and they figured she would help me stay occupied and maybe help heal me someway so they let me come get her. I'll be honest, I don't know much about horses, but I figure I can learn just like everyone else and I know I'll take very good care of her. She flinched everytime I touched her but just in a day she's found out who I am and she walks with me well, and no longer flinches and is very calm and relaxed around me and she wasn't that way with them. I think she just knows I won't hurt her. She's just been wormed and we'll be having a farrier come out soon. I'm going to take it slow with her getting used to me before I ride her, I don't want to stress her anymore than she probably is, although she is very calm natured! Here's my girl!
