How We Met

I have dreamed of owning another horse since having to put my beloved horse of over 32 yrs. down approx. 15 yrs. ago. I wanted my two sons to experience the love of owning and riding a horse just like I did for first 32 yrs. of my life.
I was browsing on Craig's List and noticed an inexpensive horse for sale not far from our home. When I saw her my heart went out to her because she was so terribly thin and frail. We took a chance and bought her for under $200. She was on a dry lot with a bully of a gelding and needed teeth floated. We were told she was 10 yrs. old and had been wormed 1 mo. prior. She had worms coming out of her and in her manure. When she saw a blade of grass she went after it, so she was happy to see tall grass in her own pasture. Luckily, her feet were very sound. The previous owner's were riding her in this condition but we knew it was best to wait.
I sought advice from friends and did research online. I started her on a diet program to gain weight. The main reason I bought her was her calm, sweet temperment. That was an important quality to have for my boys' first horse (and it reminded me of my Rusty!).
Our equine Vet took care of her teeth and vaccines but sadly told us she was at least 20 yrs. old instead of 10. He called her a "grand ole lady".
Within the first few days you could see improvement with weight gain. By week 9 we took her to a horse/rider clinic and rode her for the first time! Everyone thought she was beautiful and our friend/farrier could not believe the transformation!
Riding her brought back many wonderful memories for myself and created great memories for my boys. We look forward to a wonderful future with her and feel so lucky we found her! We wouldn't trade her for anything!
