Spooks Painted Lena Finds new Home in Oregon!


****UPDATE****Mocha has found her new home! Thank you all for your interest in her!
Some of you might remember Spooks Painted Lena aka Mocha's story. If you don't, I am going to tell it again.

A dear friend of ours passed away a few years ago and his sister inherited the farm and many head of horses. She did her best feeding them all and keeping them as healthy as possible till the estate was settled and she could start selling them. There were many of them to sell and she really had a chore of sorting out who was who and what papers belonged to what horses there were so many. She is a brave woman!

To make a long story short, there was this little bay that nobody really noticed much because she always hung to the back and the other horses kicked her to the back if she didn't go there herself. The same went for food. Every horse on the place was happy and healthy except for little Mocha as they had lovingly nicknamed her. She was kicked out of the food by the other horses and she was so wild you couldn't catch her to seperate her out to feed her alone.

So time went on, someone turned them in for animal abuse because this one horse was skinny among the many fat horses. So we stepped in and offered to buy the filly and give her a good home and get her away from accusing eyes. They managed to get her and another filly in a round pen and so we began our work of halter breaking them and gentling her so she could be handled to load in a trailer to come home with us.

Well, since that day she has learned to trust people, loves attention, can be trimmed(with patience), actually loves wormer(no Joke, she wants more when you give her a full tube!), she has been saddled, bridled, was ground drove and round penned lightly to teach her basic voice commands. She loads in a trailer rather nicely compared to what I was expecting and she is quite curious and sweet! She loves children and is gentle with them and around them(we have 6 kids from age 14-3 yrs).

Mocha was stunted and you can tell she did not get as tall as she would have. She is around 14 hands and her sister that I sold last year was 15+ hands! She might be great for a lead line pony as she loves kids. She just needs someone to love her and give her a chance. She is easy to catch and lead and will follow you like a puppy around the pen.

You can see for yourself in the pictures. She really is a sweet mare and deserves a good home! If you can be that good home for her, please contact us and we can arrange for you to meet this young lady. This has been a difficult choice for us and we really want the best for this filly.

A Good Day!

Ok now that the important stuff is out of the way, I wanted to share a wonderful horsey moment I had yesterday!

I have this young gelding that we have always played around with him and he went to Ride the West with us last year but not much else. Well I decided to see how he would except a hackamore since we mainly trail ride so bits are not all that inportant to us. So he was just fine and even started neck reining a bit. So next came the western saddle and he really could have cared less! So I had one of my kids hop on and led him around like he was already trained to do so, so I got a bigger child on his back! That was all fine and dandy so I wanted to ride him!

Mind you, after having 6 kids....well my figure "ain't what she used to be" to coin a fraze. So I mounted my little stead and he just stood there! Checked out my foot in the stirrup, decided it was no big deal and wanted to go. So we started turns and stops and it was like he had been greenbroke before I got to him. I know he has never been rode because we raised him!

Anyway, my oldest daughter got out the old grey mare who really "ain't what she used to be" also(she makes me feel better about myself) and we went for a ride! Really, we actually went for a ride! First time on his back and he only did a few little scurries, not enough to unseat my larger self!

So I had my daughter grab the camera and snap some pics of cute little Tucker under saddle and mounted for the first time! I was reminded of why I started breeding Arabian cross ponies when I rode him! They are so naturally loving and gentle and easy to train, they make you feel like one heck of a good rider/trainer! Now for the other gelding, I wonder if he will be as easy?

Enjoy the pics and I will allow a snicker or two at my rotundness but no more than that OK!
Happy Trails!
