Smile I want to introduce MY new horse!

After trying a couple of lease situations that didn't work out Oreo I'm happy to say that I have my own horse! Her name is Nala and she is a 9 year old Walking Horse. I'm so excited! We go Sunday to pick her up (Sorry about the bad pics, I was so excited that I forgot to take my own. These are the ones her current owner sent me)

Thanks ruffian! She doesn't have a white mark in her anywhere. I can't wait for her to finish shedding out so that I can see if she's a "true" black or just a really dark bay. I'm so excited I can barely stand myself :)

Thanks Spirit! She's a doll baby. She needs some work to overcome some mistreatment in her past, but she's very willing just nervous.

Actually, for my mental health. My family had horses while I was growing up and my mom and I had horses together after I got married. Four years ago, my husband and I moved our family from North Carolina to Connecticut and I had to leave my horses behind. I've suffered from clinical depression for most of my adult life and not having horses around exacerbated my condition.

I have a genetic anomaly that means anti-depressants don't work for me like they should. In looking for alternative therapies my doctor suggested that I get involved in horses again. I tried several leases, but because of my size leasing opportunities were few and the ones I did find didn't work out.

I've always enjoyed groundwork (maybe even more than riding) and I'm good at it, so this horse seems like a good fit for me.
