Ishka will be heading out this week for a much deserved life of semi-retirment and pasture living on her mom's new farm. This lovely mare has earned the right to enjoy life to the fullest with no demands from the people in her world. What could be a better place for a retired show horse than an excited new person to love her and a huge field full of plenty of friends?

Ishka is just wonderful! We're really enjoying having her here with us, and with every ride, she shows us how much she remembers from her life before being a broodmare. She amazes us with flying changes that are attained by her rider simply turning her head, her beautiful way of going, and her willingness to do whatever is asked of her.
This beautiful mare is kind and giving to her riders. She is sound, strong, and as healthy as can be. Her legs are beautiful and her feet are just about textbook perfect. She's now shod up front to keep her working happily on our hard, rocky ground, but in a home with softer footing, she's an ideal barefoot candidate.
She is our find of the century, and though not a Thoroughbred, she has endeared herself to us with her unique personality and giving ways. She is going to be a wonderful partner when her new person comes to make her their very own.

Branded Dutch Warmblood... Neither Ishka nor Parker, also a warmblood, is our usual fare at A Pinch of Luck, but both of these middle aged horses show a quality and a class that compelled me to give them a better opportunity than what would be afforded at a dead end auction.
Ishka came with no name and no history, but has a brand to identify her heritage. We're sure that she's the mother to at least one foal and bears white hairs on her withers to show that she's spent some time as a riding horse as well.
She's had one test ride since coming to A Pinch of Luck, and seems to have some very nice, if a little rusty, under saddle skill. She's easy to work around and appreciates attention in the barn. She clips, ties, leads, loads, and is quiet under saddle. She's very nicely made and substancially built. She has tremendous bone and great feet.
Ishka is suited for any task at hand--riding, breeding, or companion. She's currently living outside with a mixed herd that she fit in with from day one. She's far, far away from entering her "golden years" and will no doubt enjoy the opportunity to partner with someone in new adventures for many years to come.
