Making Mariah (Mya) Mine <3
Thinking of purchasing my first horse. She's a 5-6yr old mare a friend has for sale. Its an outstanding offer for a first time owner as she will cost me $700, and $50 a month for the board and feeding. The man who owns her now has been her sole owner, he raised her since birth. He told me he knew his mare was expecting but was shocked to look out his window one morning to see this gorgeous mostly white with red paint running along side its mother in his pasture - he then named her after the song - They call the wind mariah :)
She's 3 quarter TW and 1 quater morgan - as proven by her size and the thick/long mane and tail - she's about 14hh
I've ridden her 2 times, I've caught her out of the pasture alone and she does fine, groomed her thouroughly yesterday even pulling kuckoburros out of her mane and using spray and she didn't mind a bit. She's a lover and I need that in a horse as I enjoy being around them just as much as riding.
I'm trying to make this decision. My fiance is interested in her pasture mate mare as well, a red registered TW. He has also known the seller since he was a child and actually rode with him for many years. The situation sounds to me like my dream is coming together :)
I ask all you horse owners for any advice you have, any pointers or suggestions, any advice on owning a mare, etc. Please enlighten me.
I look forward to any advice offered!!
