Kali

I bought the bay mare.  All week since we went to look at her and pick her up, I have been trying not to like her.  It didnt work :)  Well I am happy with the choice I made, and Jardi thinks she will be a good fit. 

I was a little concerned I wouldnt get a chance to ride her for a long time and I didn't really want that so I mentioned it and Jardi figures if I ride her twice a week she will be fine or I can warm her up or cool her down.

We are gonna keep her in training till about July and then reassess where she is and give her some time off.   But as soon as it gets warm out I wll start riding her out.  We will bring her back and I will probly ranch cut on her in the winter series next winter then we will see how she is and decide what to do then.

She is so cute!  She is kinda small right now, which I am glad of, I want a shorter horse.  Right now she is 14 hands, I think she might get 14.2.  I don't know if you can see on her blanket, but its a 66!  its funny cause Razz is in a 76, lol.

Pretty happy with her, Jardi can find nothing about her she doesn't like, which is pretty good for a baby, I am liking her more all the time too.

She has a really cute look about her. Can't wait to see her all shed out. She sounds like a level-headed, but talented young girl. Gotta love those kind.

Nice looking mare! She may be small but she's solid and well-built.

How exciting! I prefer a smaller horse, too. I really don't know why people want big horses at all--so far to fall off, harder to mount, take up more room, eat more--so you have more to clean up and lots more to brush.

I am looking forward to reading about your adventures with hoer.

I hope you delete that anonymous comment! Ugh!
You are going to have a lot of fun with this horse, I want to put Chickory in cutting training but can't do it locally and can't afford to send her to a trainer. I'll do the best I can by getting a cowhorse club going here.
Love the name, bet Janice does too!

I never worry about small, correct is more important. Also I think small compact means much easier to get correct collection.

She's very cute. Looking forward to hearing how it goes.
