Another Chestnut Newcomer

Postby Sunshine2Me » Tue Aug 07, 2018 6:43 pm

Since we are sharing news of additions to the family, I'd like to introduce Cassidy! She's a 6 year old ranch bred quarter horse mare. She pretty much stood in a field for over a year before I got her, and had very little training prior to that. Can you say green, green, green? Green to the bit, doesn't know forward, doesn't steer, etc.

She is super sweet, and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. In the few rides I've had on her she has never offered to buck or anything troubling. She loves to be brushed and fussed over.

I wasn't in the market for a horse, our paths just happened to cross. I'm not sure what my plans are for her. Trail riding for sure.

I'm pretty smitten!

Cute, Sunshine!

You have to give me her pedigree, though, you can't just tease me ;) You can PM me if you want.

What can I say, I love quarter horses. I love mares. And I love a strong, solid hind end. Your new horse “has it all”!

Do you know how hard you (Sunshine2me, Chatal, KathyK, Straightforward) are making this? I want another one.
Mind you, I can't even ride the one I have currently due to my surgery but damn...I want a horse that isn't white :lol: .

She is a brick house! Very nice girl. Enjoy.

He is nice...about a hand taller than I can handle. With all my infirmities, mounting Kyra has been a challenge with a 3-step mounting block. I would need a ladder with him :lol: . I do like him though.
