This is Sage my quarter horse filly. I took these pictures last weekend with my new camera. She had been sick with a cough and snotty nose. I turned her out for a little bit. She is on SMZ's until Thursday and I can't wait. I don't like having to drive back and forth twice a day. Although as long as she's getting better I won't complain too much. She will be fresh come this weekend when I go to ride her. lol
Thank you she is my baby. lol I picked her out at a month and a half old. She is very smooth...like riding a rocking horse. Even her trot is extremely smooth.
My hopes is to get her into reined cow horse or reining. We'll see how her training goes. I plan on showing her in a few schooling shows in the next couple months. The first one is the end of the month.
Beautiful little filly you have there! She has a nice refined face, but I don't see arab in her...and the OP said in her first write up that this filly is a QH. How old is she? Sounds like you've picked a very fitting discipline for her, although I'd LOVE to see her run some barrels...VERY nice hind end. How is she to ride? Hope she recovers fast and isn't too fresh for you next weekend!
Thank you. She definitely is not part arabian. She was just mocking them and has a very refined head.
I'm partial to quarter horses. Big butts and cowy...my kind of horses. lol
She has a great mind. I had an old cowboy start her. Well actually he is more of a horseman. Wonderful with horses not rough and great with any other animal really. He just has a way with them.
He said with all the horses he's trained and rode that she is in the top 10 horses. I said thank you and he was sure to tell me no really I'm not just blowing smoke. lol Made me laugh and smile.
She has a great mind is very willing to learn and please you. Once she knows what you want she puts 110% in effort. That's why I'm taking it slow and easy with her to not blow her mind. Just enough to keep her moving along and from getting bored.
She does have a nice big butt. lol I love her head too. Well I'm bias of her really. She's my baby.
Shouldn't ask for more pictures because I have HUNDREDS from a foal to present. lol
:shock: She's barely 20 months old and you're talking about showing her already? I just started trotting my filly and she's turning 3 this spring...at what age did you get your horseman to swing a leg over her back?!
I still think she's a stunning looking mare, but I have to say I'm taken back at her training and being SO young. Feel the same about racing though, can't change anything...so I'ma just shut it and leave it at that.
Opps my bad...she's going to be three in the end of may. Long night at work. lol She was born in 2007.
She was started in Nov. And nothing hard at that. She is learning the basics of moving her shoulder out, moving her hindend over. Not a lot of loping really...speed control. As in making her extend her walk and not lollygag around. Walk with an arc in circles. Nothing too strenous on her young bones. Of course being this young her knees haven't even closed.
The show she would be going into is a schooling show. It will be for green horses. So not much is expected of them. It's to expose them to the enviroment really.
I think it's wonderful to take them to schooling shows for exposure. Nice relaxed way to introduce them to the show world. I am taking my little girl to some fun shows this summer in halter just so she can get out and experience it
