Recently my wife fell in love with a mare that our BO inherited after her boarder abandoned her for back board. We knew the previous owner and know some of her history and she was previously a hunting and pack horse and his kids rode her quite often. She is between 10-12 years old and is very sweet and very calm and quiet.

Surprisingly our BO gifted her to my wife and so she became a new member of our family. We are now a 4 horse clan! She is a little rusty but she obviously had some good training at some point and won't take much to get into good shape. She is a little fat (not bad going into the winter) and just needs some time but she will come around just fine.

So, meet Juno. She is a grade tobiano pinto mare about 15 hands high and very stout. She will make a great mountain horse! I think her and my wife will get along great!

awww... she is beautiful!

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse."
