Star - Mare
Arabian X Andalusion Cross
DOB May 5th 2003 (8 Years Old)
I purchased Star in 2006 as my first Adult horse. She was an untrained 3 year old. In the last 5 years I have had her she has learned so much and has done so much and has grown in knowledge and in substance.
Unfortunately Star's time with me is over. It's not because I don't love her, I do. It's not because I don't want her, I do. It's because I have simply outgrown her. It breaks my heart to offer her for sale but I know of no other thing to do.
Star has had 60 days of saddle training 3 years ago and has since then excelled in anything I ask her to do. The day I picked her up from training we took a 3 day camping trip in the Jemez. Here is a small example of everything she can do.
She stands.. heck she even holds up her feet for the farrier.
She stands for bathes and loves a good scrub down.
She stands tied patiently and calmly and never offers to pull or move around.
She stands for grooming and tacking.. you don't even need to tie her
She stands quietly whether you have asked her for a halt or are simply standing about and talking.
She stands for mounting, she stands until you're ready to go.
She loads herself in the trailer.. Just open the door and in she goes. She unloads herself from the trailer.
She walks, she trots, she canters and gallops, but she's content to walk along the trail with whoever she is with.
She crosses rivers, puddles, streams, railroad tracks, roads, arroyos. She climbs up hills, down hills, she will climb a sheer cliff if you pointed her at it.
This mare is worth twice her weight in gold. Put any one on her and she will take care of them. My Husband rides her, my kids ride her, my neighbors ride her. Anyone can ride this mare she is trained to the hilt and she can go forever.
She knows how to stand on a highline, how to stand on a picket line. She has been camping, has been around ATVS and never even flicked an ear. Cars, trucks, dogs, kids, fireworks, thunderstorms, guns.. nothing phases this mare. She prefers to be alone or with one other horse, but she also does ok with large herds.
She has no vices, she has never bitten, she has never kicked, never flattened her ears, she has never even been in a bad mood. She doesn't crib, chew, pace or any other vice known to man.
So far you are thinking she is too good to be true, what flaws does this mare have!
A couple of her flaws:
She does not respect Wire/Electric or otherwise non solid fencing. A wood fence, steel fence, a woven fence are all good for her, otherwise she will go right through it no questions asked.
She does not like dogs. She has never hurt a dog, but she does not like them and she will chase them out of her pasture. A sidenote.. when being ridden and there is a dog present, she will ignore it.
She is a hard keeper....and is prone to worry and ulcers.. which are super easy to keep under control if you continue to feed her exactly what I give her, otherwise she will be skin and bones.
She does ok in a herd situation, however she is so non assertive she will stand in the back and wait for everyone to be done with their food until she eats, for this reason she needs to be fed separate or have her own pen for feeding.
She is hard to fit a saddle too! I ride in an English or Australian saddle as I have not yet found a western saddle that will fit her compact body.
She is not registered! Her Dam's papers were lost by the owner many many moms ago. The Sire is unknown.
There is so much more I can say about this mare.. I could go on and on for days and days at a time! I will cry the day her new family takes her.
If you got this far and am interested in this once in a lifetime mare please Email me at
email@example.com â€“ Her Asking price is all the money in the world... but I'd accept $1500 from the right home.
I will deliver this mare to CO, AZ, Western Half of Texas and clear up to Tulsa OK for ONLY cost of gas.
