They might just be a match

It is an odd experience selling a horse that has been your living, breathing, excuse for living project every day for three years. Rose was a very good girl during her trial this afternoon. I couldn't have asked for her to be more well behaved. In fact she was an outright ham at times and adorably cute. Not that she isn't like that in general, but she seemed to really like the gal (TR) that tried her out. They were completely adorable together. It made me get a little choked up toward the end, but in a good way, because I'm just so proud of the horse Rose has become. TR even stayed with me to help untack Rose and put all my tack away and turn her out. This was great, because I think those are some of the important things to do with a horse that people often overlook during the purchase process. After seeing her not only ride Rose but interact with her afterward, I know that if she does purchase Rose that she'll be going to a very good home. Now I wait to hear more from TR, but she is definitely interested.

In the mean time, I am off to a local schooling show with Rose tomorrow. EB is coming with me and will ride her in a couple classes as well. We are doing english pleasure and english equitation. I'm guessing the judge will favor the local pleasure quarter horse crowd over the big fancy warmblood. But what the heck, it's just for a bit of fun and to get Rose out of the barn for the day. Since it's all in the name of fun, I decided to throw caution to the wind and enter Rose in the mare halter class too. I'm sure I'll be the only fool there in hunt clothes and a bridle, but hey, that's how I roll. Look out SW Montana, we are bringing a little velvet head love to your halter classes! Now, I guess I should youtube some halter classes to see what we have to do, as I haven't a clue...
Happy trails and swooshing tails!
