The horse is an Arabian and her name is Misty, but I prefer we use her nick name, Lucky!
Here she is...Cute isn't she! She is about 18-20 years old and has a few ailments, but nothing too bad according the vet. The horse vet lives next door. She has two melanoma's which is common in grey horses. I call her white though, but she can live with these for 10-15 more years. She does have a big growth on her shoulder, but again, it doesn't cause any harm or pain and you can still ride her.
SO it was me or the auction blog. She is a nice girl and very friendly. I have help at the barn to take care of her and the price was right, free! Lucky (Misty) was abandon and we have the letter to prove it. The person had their 15 year old daughter write a letter saying that Misty was no longer theirs. This is quite common now a days because it is hard to pay board and to feed. I am lucky because I don't have to pay the board and my mother is glad because she doesn't have to send her away to the auction block because the next stop is....I won't even say it!
Well, she will have a good life now because I adopted her. I am now her adoptive Mom and I have plenty of kids who will ride her from the barn (not mine) and I will do the grooming. I have not rode in years but I love being in the barn and around the horses. It is very peaceful around the horses. I can also keep a closer eye on my Mom and all the doings at the farm. I have to say I am very busy and I know that, but my daughter's fiance works their also and he will help for now!
That's the news! I guess you can take the girl away from the farm but you can't keep the farm away of the girl!
Ride on my friends!
