2007 Jockey Club registered TB mare (registered as You Are A Barfly)Sane,
sound and smart! No bad habits, light, forward, flexible and balanced,
good basics of w/t/c, started professionally, seeks bit, listens to
leg. Loves puddles, jumping, athletic, gorgeous, should pull good
dressage scores with her free gaits and natural carriage. Big, over-striding walk, beautiful, fluid, uphill-moving canter.
Very willing, tried hard to please. Obedient and sweet but
frisky. Lots of forwardness but always listens and doesn't run
Stressed behavior is expressed by a head wiggle or backing, not
rushing or bolting or bucking or spinning. Very, very rarely has cause
to be upset at all. Very brave so long as you encourage her!
If she senses you are upset, her courage falters a bit but she
still tries her heart out.
Manners: She is so good and polite,
you forget how young and energetic she is. My 9 year old can load her, she
stands politely and enjoys brushing. Cross ties, stands for farrier nicely, underdog in
turnout, everyone beats up on her. NO VICES. Hauls well but doesn't
like being crammed in.
clips, easy to pull mane, friendly, really special and rare.
Not stared under saddle until 3.5 years and not ever worked hard or
pushed, so you should not have those joint issues in early teens. She
is still growing and should make 16 hands.
Conformation: Elegant head, refined,
very feminine. Open shoulder angle. Elbows are well
forward. Beautifully set neck and lovely arch to it when she
works in self carriage. Short back, long legs, creates a very modern
Training: She loves to hack out! Basic walk,
trot and canter work, schooling transitions. She is amazingly
adjustable and flexible/bendable, you feel like you can place her
anywhere. Very balanced even for a horse with a lot more
training. She is not ridden more then once a week so she's
not kept very fit due to my health issues, but she still manages to work
with ease. She is a bold jumper, only schooled over small stuff
so far, as I want confidence and technique before height, but will
take a blue faux liverpool, brush, and jump from any angle, any place.
