The day finally got here, I was able to get my filly today!!

My dad and I had a veeeerryyy long drive (12+ hours) but it was worth it. First we had to drop off one of my big horses I had just sold about 5ish hours away. From there we had to drive back down to where my filly was at and that took us around 3 hours to get there. Once we picked her up, we had to drive the long drive back home.

I couldn’t be happier though! She’s a super sweet smart filly who's pretty much a blank slate. I’ve been working with other’s minis for a while now and I’m glad to finally have my own baby again! She’s not completely halter broke yet but she handled her first trailer ride like a champ. She’s a bay (pretty sure she’s a seal bay) Tobiano filly that’s around 4 months old. She may also have the Overo gene since her dad has it, and she has some blue spots in her eyes. She’s currently registered with AMHA and AMHR, and I plan to register her in pinto as well soon! Melody is going to make one heck of a horse when she grows up <3

I will most likely be updating here with more information on her as I start to work with her more and get to know her. I can’t wait until she’s old enough to start showing in more serious events. <3 Eventually she will be my main overall show horse!

Aw, she’s incredibly cute! I love her markings! Congratulations!

We’re waiting on our own colts who will get in October. I just love working with babies...someone remind me I said that in March when the mud is everywhere and the wind is blowing, lol!

Look at that round rump! She 's nicely put together for a young one. You'll never tire of looking at her eyes. Peanut has blues spots in one eye and they are mesmerizing. I swear they change depending on the day.
And she has a perfect stripe :)

Decided to update on my Filly! She has been doing great!! I have started working with her with haltering and general handling, and she has picked up on that super quickly. She’s one smart cookie :)

she used to be very shy, but she definitely has come out of her shell. She’s the most cuddly and people loving horse I own!

Aww, she looks like a sweetie. Did you clip around her eyes or is she shedding out? What's her name?
