We are now officially horse owners. Emily and I (this is the Despondent Debonair) purchased "Slide Me Soft Lee" for the large investment price of $1,500. She is a registered, 3 yr. old paint horse with only one white spot on her back leg. She is suppose to be a bay (a brown horse with a black main and tail) but her tail is actually blond. She is already "roaning" out quite a bit, thus gaining more white hairs across her body, so who knows what she'll look like when older. Right now she is about 14.3 hands tall (4 inches a hand) at the wither, which means she is short. She is fairly wild and unbroke at the current moment. Her mother and father are both money earners in the show ring cutting cattle. She should preform well.
Hopefully soon I will have a new post of me riding her and future blog updates of our progress. All registered horses have a registered name and then their common or barn name. Emily and I thought hard to come up with something that would fit her sassy attitude and appearance. We finally settled on "Suave" (not the shampoo... the cool Spanish word for Softly)!S
