This is going to be a tad longer than normal but I'm excited to post about my observations so far. In order of the second she hopped off the trailer. , 1) Ok she is halter broke. Great. She isn't wild (which was what we were expecting and it was ok) she follows on the lead but doesn't really respect your space and is pushy. 2) she wasn't really interested in people. Not afraid of me she just almost acted like I wasn't there. 3)She is very calm. Just takes her surroundings in. She will look at things but not much spook so far.
4) she needs some serious help with her feet. Right side is low and left side is high and it's a pretty significant difference. I think this will be the hardest part about her. But I'm glad I have a great farrier. 5) she learned to like being groomed and that was easy to teach her. You couldn't not initially walk up to her in the field. But she adjusted that within minutes.
6) MOVEMENT. She has above average movement for a horse of her size. But as you can she going from walk to trot she really shortens her neck to help carry herself. Glad I can see this on the ground to help her with this problem before I even get on her.
7) she doesn't like fly spray. But hey I thought I was getting a wild horse haha 😍🤗 8) she is really sweet and warmed up to me so easily. AS long as she not in a shocked type state, which I have seen before in feed lot horses...I really believe in this moment with her calm nature she will make a pretty talented kids horse. 9) I'm excited
