Chickie cost me a tidy sum. She was born healthy but obviously had a rough time because she has scraped a lot of hair off in various places. Then her mom colic'ed and would not stand up to nurse. Well the vet came out and took care of momma and then she gave the baby a well baby check. Her ICG number was low so she got seromune with no problem and was ever so grateful to get the 1st load of milk on board. After that she was a motoring fool. At least for a couple days! Then one of the scrapes exploded into a full blown infection and off we went back to the vet. After 5 days at Tennessee Equine (they are the best!) she returned home and was doctored regularly for quite some time. That didn't bother her a bit by then she had been handled by everybody! I held up the halter and she stuck her nose in. Loads in the trail "OK I can do this by myself!" This girl is soooo friendly she follows you around like a dog. She also stocky like her dam; Yankee's Betsy Ross. She is equally as well gaited as both her dam and her sire. She's also got a nice, no back movement, to her canter. Return to the true running walk! Chickie's got it down pat. I think she will make someone a superb trail horse as well as a possible show horse. Beautiful head, great angles, nice short back guarantees you a smooth ride. She will be tested to see if she is homozygous black or possibly has the roan gene; Betsy is a blue roan. They don't come much better than this girl. She has it all together and it all clicks in exactly the way it should. She will be ready to go in November.
