Good things just keep on happening!
Remember how a couple weeks ago Sugar wouldn’t load for me? Or, if you don’t, the short story is Molly and Casey are away on pasture at a friend’s place because my neighbor had a fit that we have horses, even though I’ve lived here 18 months. This of course prompted the house search and led to us buying the house we’re moving to Thanksgiving weekend.
So, anyways, Ms. Sugar Britches wouldn’t load. She had A FIT. She broke a halter, hit her head and created drama all around. Well, she doesn’t have a single issue loading into a stock trailer. Said stock trailer is parked in the pasture and she eats in there just fine, even going so far as to stomp her feet at me and look expectantly, as though she’s ready to go.
My landlord will bring her out to our new place for us. However, he had a price. But, so did everyone else I talked to about moving Sug. The price was that we’d buy his TB mare for $500 and he’d move Sugar for free. Bad Pants accepted the deal immediately. Know what? Moving Sugar was going to cost us $400 anyways. So, BP just bought me ANOTHER MARE for $100.
Wanna know who she is? Look here. She actually has 6 decent wins to her name. Not sure why they didn’t campaign her harder as she did beat out a couple Derby winners for the years she raced. Well, it doesn’t matter much anyways. We’re quite happy with her.
I don’t have any pics with moving upon us. She was being retrained Western at the time. Since this video was taken a few years ago, Flirt (her barn name) has been used as a trail horse, a company horse, a husband horse, and a kids horse. She also jumps and has been shown huntseat.
I can barely say it. I own FIVE horses now. FIVE. And 4 of them are mares (and a filly)! From a self-professed gelding person, I certainly gained a lot of mares in a big hurry!
