I got to meet a very nice 10 year old chestnut Arabian mare today (the pictures below were taken by the owner and sent to my phone, I didn't really have time to take pictures while working with her). The owner had three horses, two were in their twenties and she just didn't have the time that the younger mare needed. The other horses were more pasture pets for her. One was a chestnut mare and the other was a grey (white) gelding. Gorgeous boy!
Phoenix was very nice looking and seemed to be in good weight. She didn't interact with me too much, she smelled me but wasn't exactly too sure of me. She enjoyed getting groomed and was a perfect doll for hoof picking. She wanted one hing leg back sooner than I was ready but she wasn't reactive and upset over her feet being touched. I've learned that's an area that freaks me out, I need a horse that is good with having their feet handled and she was good in my opinion. There were small children that were running around the area and she seemed interested in them, obviously she knew them and was comfortable, perhaps if she got to know me she would react with the same interest.
