I Think it's Almost Time for Her to Come Home!

I think the time is coming near for my beautiful 3 yr old filly Mya to come home!! She was sent to a friend of ours some months ago to be broke. The arrangement my Hubby had with the Cowboy was a trade deal, he gave him something he needed for his horse trailer and in return he would break this filly for me. But as luck would have it Cowboy was very busy all summer with rodeo for his kids and then football season, so now it has come down to she is going on to the Cowboy's uncles to be finished. Which is all fine by me, I'm just ready to have her back and get her muscled back up!! The working she has done and then not having a turn out onto pasture over the summer she has really lost her muscle mass, I went over Saturday and took some pictures of her..

She wasn't real thrilled with the camera :)



She has the prettiest eyes!!



So WOW, she looks yellow?!?! She really is white LOL!!



Something caught her attention!



And away she went LOL!! Here is where I noticed some loss in the thickness of her neck!



She is a paint, but with her winter coat you can hardly tell! She actually just has black markings on her skin that show through her summer coat really well!!



This is her summer of '08, you can see her "paint" markings! Interesting information for you, the new filly that we just got and had the naming contest for...They share the same sire!

  1. Maybe as the years go by, those markings will darken up. Hope she will be a good ride for you.

  3. It is nice to have everybody home under one roof -- kinda goes with kids too! It does look like she needs a little tlc and some good treats from you! I'm sure she'll be back on track in no time.

  4. Very pretty girl! I need to find someone to break my colt. I just don't have the time or knowledge (um...or patience???) to mess with it. It's either that or sell him, because he's an ornery mess.
