Fax is an inspiration to all AQHA lovers. This 23 Year Young girl was lightly trained as a 2YO then turned out to pasture to live her days as a broodmare. Then she was bought, in foal, by my friends to continue her broodmare life at their Paint and QH farm. I fell in love with her and after her filly was weaned I asked to ride her (as my horse was only a yearling at the time). They warned me that she hadn't been ridden in over 10 years - but I decided to take my chances.... (read more) She was perfect in everyway! Instantly wanted to be lead horse, trusting, brave and smart. We did everything together, we learned barrel racing and pole bending together, she was my mounted police horse for a short period as well. She excelled so much in barrel racing and pole bending, we became state record holders in poles with a 19+ second run! We placed in the Nationals in Virginia at the NBHA show in 2001 - she loved to race. I would have to hold her back from dashing into the chute when we were waiting our turn. She has a heart of gold. We had even been team penning together! She was sadly sold to another family, as I couldn't afford to buy her at that time. A few years later she came back to the farm - the other family couldn't race her anymore as she had developed navicular and arthritis so they gave her back to the farm where we met. After having one more foal for them, they gave her to me. I was so happy to finally have her back - I didn't care that she was chronically lame and probably wouldn't be ridden again. She loves to be brushed - will stand for ever, untied if someone would just brush her and tell her how gorgeous she is (because she is), she bathes, clips, ties, loads like a dream, is great for the farrier - but is very stiff - so needs an understanding person while doing her feet. She's good for the vet, but does not like shots - she will let me give them to her, so if done with finesse - she is fine. She is UTD on all vaccines and deworming. Again, she is chronically lame - I'm not sure if she can be ridden again or not - she is currently barefoot as her feet were a mess when I first got her back and it's taken years to build the hoof wall back but they are wonderful now. She is very tender on rocky ground and stumbles a lot - but with proper shoeing may be sound enough for light riding. It breaks my heart to sell my Faxie girl, but with my 2 year old son, I don't have the time to devote to her like I used to, and money is very tight. Fax is to go to an approved Retirement Home - with the possibilty of light riding ONLY. She would make a wonderful 'babysitter' for weanlings or a good pasture mate for a lone horse - please help me find a good home for this exceptional horse.
