I have a Mare for sale i dont no much about her i was told she is only six but when i looked at her teeth she looks to be about 12. when i got her she did not ride. i have only rode her twice and she is still a little stubborn but will ride fine. Her name is Dixie she is very sweet once she gets to know you. i hate to sell her but i just do not have time to finish her out… i no she will make an excelent trail horse. she has great temper on her. i ride her in spurs and she has never one tried to kick buck or stand up with me… she is a little lazy and impatient but i no with a little time in the saddle she will turn out great…
And, last but not least, this one, from Amy W. Bless their heart, it’s kind of sweet:
This might be a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone would be able to let me use their farm for the mustang makeover challenge. I am 17, and would be getting a yearling mustang for the challenge. I know a lot about the basics of training, but you could help. I am mostly looking for facility. They are mustangs, so they won’t need much in the way of feed or hay, and the challenge is in the spring/summer so all we really need is some pasture. We also would need a round-pen and a stock type trailer to pick up the horse. I am willing to take full care of the horse, and help you around the farm. E-mail or text if you might be able to help. Thanks.
