New girl to come

Covid has been quite the whirlwind. I finally pushed myself to list my gelding whom I did most of the training but on the barrel pattern Just could not click with. He went to an amazing high school rodeo girl and I am ecstatic to see how they excel!
I had planned to wait awhile to purchase another however this mare popped up from the same seller of my last gelding and things just fell into place. Due to covid my work has placed travel restrictions And I am not permitted to go the 7hrs to pick her up so she’ll be here beginning of October! Until then I’ll be preparing her stall at our new property and spending time with my 2yr old filly.

A little about this girl she’s a 5yr old by a mr sun o Lena son and out of a chic in time mare. She’s green but willing and I’m incredibly excited to get my hands on her.

One week closer to the new girl coming home! She has already been nicknamed cheeto buy my trainer and friends haha, but I think I'll officially be going with Shady as her barn name.

Just curious but why do they use so many brands?

I actually tried to find her breeders brand info but they made it kind of hard. My other filly has numbers in her buttcheeks for sure and dam. I assume this filly is similar, ranch brand then year born, sire and dam but I’m not positive. I haven’t reached out to them yet. She does have more brands than i would ever personally put on a horse as these had to have been done young

Just a week and a half to go before this girl is officially in my possession! I am so excited. Yesterday her papers got to me so I can get that process started!

It always seems the week of big things sleep is nowhere to be found. I slept maybe 3 hours last night worrying about the pick up date as we’d had some conflicts.
She finally got back with me and we are back on track but now for Thursday afternoon!
It’s a full day early and my job is allowing me to come in earlier that morning so i don’t lose more hours.
Still lots to be done before Thursday. I need to have my boyfriend weld the new gate hinges on her stall door, purchase another hay net, put new shavings in the trailer and buy a new lead rope as my filly has chewed up my spare 🙄.

I also acquired a gaited gelding i helped start a few years ago for a restart to prep to sell by my farrier AND my trainer ha some legging up her semi retired barrel mare while her stall is being used for her own trainee.

Busy busy trying not to focus on my job possibly imploding but instead opening new doors and avenues!

And she’s here! My boyfriend and I drove out and picked her up yesterday. It was a looong day with me still going into work at 5am, heading to pick her up at 2pm and not getting home until almost midnight 😳. Poor girl had a lot of hauling hours yesterday.
Today she just got to decompress, got a bath, mane and tail braids done and some liniment for those muscles.
She is INCREDIBLY sweet, stood still at the hitching post after her bath and waited for me to finish bathing, braiding and riding the others.
Awesome manners so far. I can not wait to start really working with her this weekend! She has had the last month off and her feet need to be done(scheduled for next week) so we will start back slowly but anyway, here is miss Shady or Cheeto depending on who you ask 😊😊

Update on miss Shady.
She is still sweet but also quite the bluffer. She is currently just building confidence with the mounting and moving off as this is where she wants to get humpy. I ended up switching to a different saddle on her as well.
We also found that this is probably largely because poor girl was a HOT mess, she was out in her poll, neck, shoulders, 4ribs, hips and sciatic 😳😳
So! She’s currently getting another week off of just massage, stretching and redlight.
However here are some new pictures of her ❤️
