"Timber" is a 6 year old chestnut QH mare. 15.0-15.1hh, she is GUARANTEED sane and sound. She clips, ties, loads, stands to be saddled and mounted, great on trails, etc... and she LOOOOOOVES WATER! This mare is a pleasure to work with, and she will excel at most disciplines. Her mind and heart can't be beat. No buck, no rear, no bull. She rides in a simple snaffle and has EXCELLENT ground manners. She is young and chock-full of talent, so we would like to see her go to someone that is willing to continue her training and see how far she can go! She's a solid citizen. Timber sells with a trial period. Don't miss out on the mare of your life!
This is Timber's "story"... what we know of it, anyway. ~Rachel
We pulled Timber from Sugarcreek early this spring. I spoke with the dealer that brought her to the sale, and he claimed that a 13 year old boy rode her all over all last summer (when she would have been 5). I don't believe a word I'm told by dealers, but I heard him out. As I walked away, I asked him what her name was. He couldn't even tell me. He had no idea. Soooooo I'm taking all his other info with a grain of salt. However, his son was riding her around the sale barn with big spurs, and had a running martingale on her. He would spur her mercilessly... then when she sped up her would slam her in the face (yank yank yank). She was being a saint for him. I later looked at her bit and it was a thin hard twist. We outbid the killer and brought her home. We turned her out and let her relax for awhile, then put her through an evaluation. She was intimidated and tense about the bit (understandably!), but didn't step out of line once. In less than 5 short uneventful rides she was relaxed and actually lazy. We have had an advanced beginner ride her and she did great but I think she deserves to be finished (she has SO much talent!) and while an advanced beginner could ride her occasionally, she should still have someone that could continue her training. She is a DOLL and she is willing, and even a bit lazy! She went from a worried submissive animal that was obedient out of fear to a silly goofy sweet mare that tries to take off with the water hose and is the first one up to you in the pasture. I can't say enough about her. She has really rewarded us for saving her. Whoever ends up with her should consider themselves lucky!
