Dandy's sire. Click the thumbnail to view the full-sized image.

  • Green broke, with 30 days riding as a 2 year old and sporadic riding as a 4 y/o, 15 days as a 6 year old followed by periodic trail riding.  She's a "point and click" mare, and will go anywhere you point her. As of 2010, she does not neck rein (due to infrequent riding) but goes right along where she's pointed. I don't get to ride often, so haven't finished her, but she is the horse I ride when I do get to. Since I only trail ride and ride her once per year in the 4th of July parade, she isn't a finished horse. I rarely ask her to trot, and can't remember the last time I loped her! She is, therefore, only "green broke." She has always been great on the trails except for once in 2013 when she would have been happy to kick a mule that came up behind us on the trail.

  • Really well muscled, foundation and bulldoggy-built mare.

  • Branded on left hip

  • ~15 hh. 

  • Dandy can NOT be used as a broodmare.

  • Dandy had a vaginal tear with her first foal (grullo colt). We bred her again after she healed, and she had complications foaling.

  • In 2013, we finished genetic testing all of our horses. Since Dandy is not a broodmare, she was one of the last tested. We discovered that she is n/P1 for PSSM, and Negative for HERDA, GBED, MH, and HYPP. Because she is n/P1, she should NOT be used as a broodmare (in addition to her previous history with foaling complications). She should be a riding horse only!

  • In the spring of 2010, Dandy got into a large bale of pure alfalfa and had a laminitis episode. She recovered and has been sound ever since.

  • Dandy would do best if ridden consistently (several times per week) and given little or no grain because of being n/P1. A low-sugar diet would be the best plan. She stays fat on hay and pasture, and no grain. Easy keper!
