new england---stunning buckskin 10 yo kentucky mountain saddle horse mare
i hate to do it, but i think i must rehome my gorgeous mare maya.
there is nothing wrong with her, in fact i had very high hopes for us to be trail partners. she's a stout 14'3, perfectly sized for me and stunning to boot.
sadly it's more of a financial decision after a good hard look at my budget.
anyway i bought her almost two years ago when a friend and i went to pick up a horse for a client of hers. maya was to be left alone and was going berserk, having never been separated from her barn buddy. sellers were not horse people and had no idea what to do, so my friend and i took her home with us and i kept her.
she spent six weeks this spring with an excellent trainer and has the basics down of whoa and go and steering. her gait is not solid yet, mostly i rode her out and about to expose her to the world.
she hurt herself playing too hard with her herdmates in july and the vet thought it was a deep tendon injury which would be fine with enough rest.
so i gave her a few months off and she's fine now, but boy does she need a job!
maya wants to be your favorite pony and thrives on attention. she's brave and non spooky, though a harley motorcycle scared the bejeezus out of her. the biker was kind enough to turn his machine off and she was able to relax and sniff without drama, i was very proud of her!
she used to be the alpha mare when i first got her, but has settled into maturity nicely and is now just occasionally bossy about hay piles.
she does have some allergies and can be very itchy in bug season, i have not yet found 100% relief for her.
i can deliver her and will want the usual references, etc.
