|Health:|| Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Needs Vaccinations | Beauty is a sweet girl who is 14 years old. Her full name is Eds Painted Beauty. Her sire is Painted Easy GB, and her Dam is Kennys Midnite Beauty. She was raised in a loving environment with approximately 20 horses, plenty of hay, and human attention so she does not have any food/social issues. Beauty knows grain... loves grain... :) but is an easy keeper who doesn't need it, so the occasional treat is really appreciated. She is a submissive mare who usually is at the bottom of the hierarchy. Though she is untrained, she has been saddled both English and western and ridden without issues (other than she needed ground work to know what they ... (Read More)were asking of her!). She is loving and wants to please, so she will usually give a lot of try, but the fact that she is 14 and untrained does come out too from time to time with a 'I don't want to, I never had to do this before'. She has plenty of energy and would likely be great with dressage. When she is running across pasture, she doesn't pound the ground like our geldings, she collects herself naturally, curves her neck, and dances her hooves. We were Beauty's second owner. When her third owner purchased her, she just boarded her with us. Beauty, who loves people and attention, was quite pleased to have someone spending time with her regularly so things started off splendidly. However, her owner was unprepared for the costs and commitments of ownership and at this point is more than a year behind in boarding and no longer keeps any contact. Once we realized that Beauty was abandoned and in fact going to winter with us again we were able to secure hay that will get us most of the way to spring so she is set ...for now (in fact she is just a bit chunky right now LOL). Beauty is a wonderful horse, but at our place receives only basic care and attention. She would really prefer daily neck rubs, forehead scratches, and to go with us when we take our geldings out. She can spend time alone however just fine too. This last summer she spent 5 weeks alone while our boys were off playing elsewhere. After the first two days of looking for them, she did just fine and quite enjoyed grazing wherever and whenever she wanted with no one to tell her to move off (my boy is sweet, but feels it is his job to be sure everyone gets plenty of exercise ;) ). Anyhow, while Beauty does prefer a heard, she is not opposed to heading out or staying home alone. -She was thrilled though when the trailer pulled in the driveway - so cute). We are looking for someone who can give Beauty a home with care and attention (and training would be great as I think she would be amazing). Beauty is not current on vaccinations, but I did have her coggins done in July. We have been working on her hoof care since she came to our farm and her hooves are like Fort Knox! I had her teeth checked in the spring and they looked very good (amazing as I think she has never had a float!) but the vet said perhaps a float in the fall. I wormed her in May (she was not wormed last fall) with Zimecterin Gold and she did great. Health wise she is well bread as she is solid! She stands well for the farrier. All in all, her great breeding and temperament (combination of; sweet, submissive mellow paint; smart, energetic Arabian; and solid QH) shines through! As far as I know Beauty has never been trailered and likely would take some patience and persistence for the task, though I have specifically taken her in and through small spaces without issue. Beauty is a smart girl who, when startled, prepares for the flight instinct, but stops and thinks things through first. She has had very little handling this past year though and it shows as she is more reactive lately (still a smart and a great girl!). At our place she still gets loves, but not training. We are looking for someone who can provide well for Beauty. :) (Less) Animal Location:
