Breeze in the Spring of 2000.
On March 1st, Eddie and I decided to go to an all registered horse auction in Rich Hill, MO,
about 100 miles north of us. We were looking mainly for a trail riding horse for Eddie, since
his mare was due to foal anytime. We were walking around outside looking at the horses
prior to the sale and in the very last stall was this little bay mare. I walked over to look at
her and she looked at me with the deepest warmest brown eyes. I told Eddie right then,
"I want her". We really began to look at her and realized that this mare either had a good
sized hay belly or she was in foal. She was obviously a quarter horse, bay with a small
star and two back white half pasterns. We waited through most of the sale before they finally
brought her through. A young man came in riding her bareback with just a halter. Then
they began to read her pedigree and said that she was bred to a paint stud for a May foal
and gave the stud’s background. The last thing we needed was another mare in foal, but
I had to have her. Needless to say, we bought her. *S* She’s a nice mare to work with,
but a bit skiddish. I’ve only ridden her once, and that was a short ride bareback, because
she was so far in foal that I couldn’t bring myself to saddle her. She seemed to rein pretty
well, but does a little dance when she gets nervous. She’s busy raising a foal right now, so
it will be a little longer before we get out for a nice long ride. To see her pedigree, click on the
picture at the top of the page.
Update: I started using Breeze in the summer of 2000
as my trail mare and she is just wonderful! She gets better on each ride and I am extremely
pleased with her.
On May 20th she gave us a beautiful sorrel overo colt, "Sure".
