ahaha, how adorable! Your new mare is absolutely stunning. I love how the donkey just goes running after her like 'come here baby! you know I'm gorgeous' and she just keeps trotting away as if she's saying 'go away you little hairy cow!'

congradulations on getting her! What are you plans for her/what sort of situation was she in before you got her?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I don't have a ton of history on her. What I do know is that she raced her last raced in late 2008. Long story short, her previous owner mistreated her and dropped her off at my friend's place to breed her to her stallion who's 2yr old track record still hasn't been beat at CalExpo. When he went to breed with her he couldn't get it in because of her height. My friend dug a whole and put Zara's back legs in it. When her stallion went to mount her a second time he stretched out so bad that both his testicles and intestines disconnected. She said he fell to the ground and the vet was there within 15 minutes and put him down. She called Zara's owner and since he couldn't race her and she wasn't in foal he said if she didn't keep her he was going to sell her to the local kill buyers that take them down to Mexico:( Heather gave me a call knowing that I have been looking for an eventing prospect. I am not a super competitive person and only want to do lower level eventing for fun. I also plan to use her for trail seeing as I live in the mountains and the trails are fabulous up here. Because of her situation and me living 1 1/2 from Heather I told her to bring her to my place after she sent me a text with a photo of her. Her feet are not in the best of condition and will probably take a few trims to get back into working order. Her nose is scared from where that man abused her with a stud chain. This mare doesn't need a stud chain at all. She has fabulous ground manners except with narrow gates. Heather said when that man dropped her off at her place that when he put her in the stall he popped her hard like 10 times before letting her go in. No wonder she is scared of small gates. I think some TLC is going to go a long way with this girl:) I plan on starting her under the saddle training in a few weeks after she is settled in. I feel really blessed to know that I am going to be the first person on her back. I have always wanted to rescue a horse in need and finally got my chance. I LOVE the way she moves and think she is going to do well under saddle because she isn't hot at all.

OMG I love how you called him a hairy little cow!!!!! I'm definitely going to start calling him that now! Lol I normally call him a ham. He is the most affectionate animal on my little farm. He loves it if you pull up a chair and let him rest his head on your lap while having his ears and forehead rubbed.
