Hello, Betsy here....my first post on my new blog. You can check out my website, and about me at the left of this page. But let's start with Lady, a Tennessee Walking Horse mare. Her registered name is Walker's Velvet Queen, and she is black and beautiful! Her coat actually looks like velvet. She is short and stout, and 14.1 at the withers and more like 14.3 at the rump! She was born in Iowa, in September, just like me! Her birthday is the 13th and mine is the 27th. She had a nice consistent fox trot gait until this spring. For some unknown reason, she started working with a nice slow running walk, and I encouraged it and enjoyed it....and now she only does the running walk almost all the time, no matter how fast she is moving!
My husband purchased her at a horse sale, just because she cuddled her nose into his arm and he fell for it and bought her on the spot! That was before he realized she has a very alpha nature. So I tried to "fix it" and learned you can't fix alpha, just like you can't fix "MARE!"
I'll talk more about Lady...and I'd like to hear about YOUR mares, too! Come on, join in and let's explore this World of Mares!
