    Robin (she looks like a Robin to me)

    She is gorgeous! Is She trained? I advise you to have her proffessionally trained . . . trust me, even my bruises will tell you it is not worth it to try to train a young mare by yourself! she has a very nice head and neck, if she's tall you might consider show jumping her.
    Right now I am trying to talk my dad into buying a pure bred, Arabian colt (might geld him) who's a grey, will be atleast 16.2 hands when full grown, and I plan on show jumping with him. Congrats!!!!
    I have an entire tablet of horse names . . . if you want, I can email/send you the entire tablet if you send it back when your done . . .

    She is beautiful!


    I had a Tennessee Walker gelding who was almost 17 hands tall, he was my baby and I had him since he was a year old, but we had to sell him last year because the price of hay was just too high :tears:

    Thanks everyone! I was actually thinking about Roxy, and I have a few other names in my head.
    She has been trail ridden for 2 years and she was a harness racer for a really short time at the age of 3. I am getting her from a rescue group. I really don't want a show horse or a show jumper or anything, just a trail horse. She is like 15 hh.

    Awww, that's sad. :( I think I saw a video or something of him before. But it may have been someone elses. I heard that the Tennessee Walkers are really nice horses.

    Shes beautiful!

    Names that come to mind are; Gypsy, Crystal, Black Velvet, Etched in black, Roma, or Rhiannon. Personally Rhiannon has always been one of my favorite names, the Welsh goddess.

    Yep, I got her. She is so sweet!! She was scared of the goats at first and she didn't like her stall. But now she is OK. We will see how she is on the weekend when I try to ride her. If she is bad with that then we will have to get rid of her. But she should be fine. I will post more pics on this thread when I get the chance. :) Thanks for checking in with me! :)

    Give her a chance to get use to all the new stuff in her life. Do not get discouraged if she is not doing what you want right off the bad. She has to learn that she can trust you.

    She is really a beautiful horse. Congratulations.

    you probably know this already but a horse who trusts you will be more willing to listen to you. Just work with her on the ground first. Hanging out with her and working in barn/shelter or pen with her around will greatly aid you both in your relationship. Feed her treats and groom her. The more she hears your voice and touch the more confidence she will have in you and there will be minimal issues when you get up on her :greengrin:
