Well, a friend and I fell 'victim' to auction fever
last weekend, attending a "Dressage For The Cure"
fundraiser. We knew a Thoroughbred and a Paint were
donated, but had no interest...until we saw *her*. A
lovely 15+ hand bay Arab mare...
She's getting along quite nicely with 2 of the gang
(only because they promptly acknowledged her as Lead
Mare, I'm afraid!), but Darby is having fits (as would
be expected for the head honcho). AFAIK, she's never
been ridden, and coming out of an abusive situation 2
years ago, we are proceeeding with delicacy. Still,
I've already bitted her (with the mildest of snaffles)
and introduced the surcingle (sort of a strap around
the body, precursor for a saddle), and am
walking/leading her out on the trail several
Our only disagreement so far is what to call her: her
registered name is Sharzanna (eeuww!), my friend likes
Zanna, but I prefer Cezanne ('cause she's pretty as a
picture!) -- I suspect she'll learn to respond to
Gleaming In The Sun, Bannered In The Wind Maru :D
