Four Year Old
15.2 Hand Mare
Lottie is a four year old mare who is ready to begin a life as a sport horse. She was very briefly started as a race horse before her owners ran out of money. She never made it to the track and is not tattooed (though she does have full Jockey Club paperwork). She is sound and has legs free of the commonplace blemishes of the track. As a bonus, she also has feet that are very accostomed to being barefoot--if she's worn shoes, it's been a long time.
Her brief training came during her two year old year. She was sold and was bred at three, and had a nice filly (we're told) this spring. Her filly was weaned in September, and she came to us in October. Since coming to Georgia, she's had only a handful of rides because of this season's crazy weather. Lottie still shows typical green horse behavior under saddle and will greatly benefit from lots of work in long lines or on the lunge. She is kind and a good worker, just doesn't know what her job is yet and her insecurity with under saddle work shows up by the sensible decision to just stand still. When she's moving, her walk is long strided and free and her trot is incredibly smooth and easy to ride.
We see the potential for Lottie to go in any direction. With training, she will be a fantastic young rider's horse or a horse for a smaller adult. She is pretty enough that she'll catch any judge's eye, and moves nicely enough to be a cometitive show prospect for under saddle classes. We've not made any attempt to test her over fences at this time, but may do so in the coming weeks if the weather allows us to progress in her training.
Lottie is sound and offers all she meets a sweet, generous personality. She loves to give kisses and to smell the hair of all who handle her. She's never offered to be mean during her sniffing, and instead will even go so far as to rest her chin on someone's head if given the chance. Her legs show no wear and tear from her prior training. She loves to be groomed and is great for the farrier. Current on vaccines and Coggins.
Breeders should take note--she appears to show some characteristics of the Sabino gene and may be a color producer if crossed with complimentary color genes.
