My new horse!
« on: April 06, 2018, 05:45:09 pm »

My boyfriend, sorry-fiance' (more new news), decided that he wanted to start riding horses. So, I went on a search for either something for him or have him take over Trace and me get a new one. I found this girl a few hours away and she just seemed like the kind of horse I like, calm, sweet and shorter. Her name is (was) Cookie. She is 11 yrs old and about 14.2hh. She was born at the farm where I met her and has never been anywhere. Her dam is a SSH that was with her at this farm. Her Sire is CD's Gambler, a RMH. She is extremely overweight (1300  lbs), but already slimming down. She was used to a huge, lush pasture with round bales as well and hadn't been ridden in almost a year. She is also very pacey, but that should improve with conditioning and weight loss. I've had her here for almost a month now. She is so calm, but needed to go back to kindergarten. She is very pushy and doesn't seem to know a lot. But, she is learning very quickly. I think that's about all. Now, onto the pics!

All I can say is BEAUTIFUL.  Hope everything works good with her.  I was looking to see if it was a mare or a gelding, but I see where you called her a she.  That answered my question.  I am not a fan of mares, but I have to say that Missy who we just got from my friend when her husband died, that I am very impressed with her.  She so far, is not showing any pushing the boys around.   May happen as she gets more use to her new home,  but right now, she is the nicest mare I have ever had on our property.  And I am hoping Steve will get on her soon when we get a warmer day and not a to do list that has to be  done before we can have horse time.  The weather has just not been worth the time to saddle and be frozen stiff before we get on the horse.  She has not been ridden in 3 years, so a ride on the property and then over to the Christmas tree farm to loop around there will be our first time out to see how good Missy will be.  I will post for sure after the ride.  I keep thinking tomorrow.......but it just hasn't happened yet.
