Rosie, Rosie

We had been told that Rosie had been used for barrel racing but it was hard to imagine that seeing her so skinny.  Now that she's so much more substantial, T has been riding her about once a week (give or take).  She is so quiet and easy going on the ground but man is she a pistol under saddle.  That little pony has some go to her!!  She is completely bored and restless just riding around the ring but give her something to do and she's a different little pony.  She obviously knows the barrel pattern since she pretty much did it herself the first time T took her through it.  She must have been something to see in her prime.  The vet estimates her age at about 21 and she has surprisingly good teeth.  She brings a smile to my face whenever I see her even when she is selectively ignoring me.

She sounds a lot like my Maggie. Full of sass, challenging but loveable, and makes you curious about what her life was before she was with you. She sounds great!
