    Yeah, I was looking for a pony resale project to further my horse training experience...:ya

    This showed up, know next to squat & we may be picking her up this Thursday. o_O

    Supposedly 10yrs old, branded mustang mare, calm. Previous owner claimed she's broke, but led in sale, so probably has issues...That's all the info we got. :hide
    See? I've lost my noodle! :barnie

    Anywho, meeting her at my trainer's place & then hauling her home. :fl Hoping she doesn't maim anyone or any critter...

    Pretty little thing. Nice hip on her. Why not let your trainer give her a "test ride" ? :D

    :lol::yuckyuck
    I don't want to kill my trainer! I actually like her.

    But I will ask to use her dog as a guinea pig to see if she's dog friendly & maybe even see if I can borrow her Bucking Dummy later on.

    She'll be helping me out as needed, but most will be on my neck...

    She is cute!! That bucking dummy is awesome! Though I wonder about a horse that would buck/bolt with that but not a person.... my Richie might be one of those.... interesting though. Mustangs are definitely independent so I personally would spend a ton of time on the ground with her. Keep us posted. :pop

    I don't know much about horses but I think she is pretty. You will be fine because you have a trainer, you aren't going in ignorant thinking you can figure everything on the fly.

    And yes 4 new smilies! They were requested and the staff provided them. They already existed on BYC which is run also run by those who run this site.
