I really like the look of her! She reminded me a great deal of my mare in the videos (not color, but demeanor) - the alert, interested, but gentle expression. I think with my mare it's a combination of her natural temperament, plus the patient and 'correct' early training she had, plus the fact that she appears to have been gently and respectfully handled her entire life, so she trusts people and seems to truly want to please us (most of the time, lol - she still has a brain). She is also 14.3 hh and that's such a luxury - I don't even think twice about hopping off and on to open gates etc like I do when on a taller horse. I think of it as having a combination Roadster/Jeep instead of a Cadillac/hummer.
I have fallen head over heals in love with my girl after 4 months - I wish you the same!
I'm a mid-lifer finally making time for horses... Having a blast, but there's soooo much to learn -
