So I put down a deposit on a horse this morning! Her name is Misty (subject to change), and she's just almost 5 years old, and 15.3 hands tall. She doesn't know a ton, but has loads of potential, and has a sweet personality. Barring any unforeseen difficulties she should be here in a couple of weeks, along with her soon to be new pal Noble. We've just got to work out the final details and get the shipping arranged and we should be all set! See the pics and video below for a sneak preview. I'm sure there will be many more pics come summer.
Here's Misty. I think this picture is from last summer, because she's much fuzzier right now.
And here's one of me riding Noble a few weeks ago. He's a really cool horse who is kind of a mystery at this point, in terms of what he knows how to do. But I'll get a good start on figuring it out and then throw Tom up on him to find out the rest!! Hooray for a horse for Tom!
(I don't think he quite realizes yet how lucky he is ;) )
Ok, and here's a quick little video of Misty lunging this morning. My camera ran out of memory before I rode her, so I don't have any pics of my ride. Sad!
