Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Meet Love

This is Love (aka Love Bug, Lovely, Lulu).
She is a 2008 APHA filly out of Shes My Pick by Rock Four. I was at an auction in October and she was the last horse in the ring. Since she was the last horse (there were about 5 minutes between her and the horse before her since her owners weren't paying attention) there were pretty much no bidders left. I was only sitting there because we figured we would let the lobby clear a bit before we made our way out. A known kill buyer in the area was there and maybe 10 or 12 others. They started the bidding at $800, then dropped to $600, then to $400, then to $100. The KB bid at $100. I really was just at the auction to help some clients but I couldn't let her go to kill. So I bid. He bid against me for a bit but I ended up getting her for $300.
She has a killer little jog, is slow legged and driven at the lope.
I am pretty excited to see what our spring and summer bring. Depending on how she does I may end up finding a new home for her or keeping her for myself. She does have a slight diviation in her right front that will prevent her from ever being an over fences horse but I don't think that is what she wants to do anyway. If nothing else she will be a fun trail horse.
