    Default Gotta share my new girl

    I'm 6 months pregnant so all I can really do right now is love on the horses and take pics, so I've been doing both with a vengeance

    This is my brand new mare Gigi... I was sure not looking for a new horse at this time in my life, but boy do I feel lucky to have had her come to me. I am SO in love!

    I have been daydreaming about what we will do in the future... Arab Sport Horse stuff of course (she's a registered Anglo-arab), but what else? Dressage? Maybe down the road, she'd cross nicely with a warmblood stallion... Trak, perhaps?

    What do you guys think?

    Pardon the mud... we've only lived here since March, and HOLY COW we're having a wet summer so far!

    What a looker = ) I grew up riding arabs and saddlebreds, so I love this type of horse. I'm also a head person, and she sure has a lovely one - big round eye, nice flat profile with just a hiiint of a dish, big jaw, clean lines overall. Love her, haha.

    Congratulations on your new baby (babies!)

    Also, I think she would be a lovely sport horse for you. She has a nice balanced build for dressage plus a good neck set and a refined throat latch. I'd bet she'd have some pretty babies as well = )

    She's a granddaughter of both Bey Shah and Aladdinn on the Arab side (her sire), and not much to speak of on the dam's side (TB) But I'm telling you, the dam must have been a dam nice mare (lol)... I've seen my mare's sister (by a WB stallion-- Oldenburg, I believe?) and she is a super nice filly too.

    Thanks for all the nice words, everyone... I'm just so enamoured of this girl
