I think I found myself a new project!! :)
She is a 5 (I believe) year old sorrel QH mare. I'm pretty sure she is by Smart Like Juice, I have to check out her papers. She is for sale but has been at our barn doing much of nothing really. A friend of my boss's gave the horse to her because her horse went lame and won't ever be rideable. The story goes that she was sold for $15,000 as a yearling. Well she turned out not to be futurity reining material so she got pushed to the side. Then my boss bought her for the rock bottom price of $2,500. She sat around since my boss has always swamped with work and I think the loss of her mare has been a lot. Another girl at the barn was riding her english and started her over some cross rails. That girl has left and doesn't have time for her.
After the first ride I love her! She moves nicely off the legs, has a very soft mouth and dosen't feel like "to much horse". She needs a brush up on her neck reining and her lope certainly needs work. I was quite impressed she had a nice little stop still and from what I could tell she seemed to remember her spins. All and all she seems like a sweet girl and a pleasure to be around.
