Reluctantly offered for sale is this gorgeous mare with SO much potential.
Whether for breeding or riding, Butterfly has everything anyone could want. She is super-sweet, easy to handle, loves babies... although she's never had one yet... and is just a really nice horse all the way across the board.
Butterfly is easy to work with and very willing. As of 10/21/2012, I have started her under-saddle training, and she is doing marvelously. She had no issues with wearing her bareback pad, tightening the cinch, and then having me on her back doing basic guiding excersizes. It was a great "first ride," and I am looking forward to the next one with her. It won't be long at all before she's looking smart with all her English "attire" on! With one-on-one attention, Butterfly will quickly move along to being a wonderful horse to ride as well as a wonderful mother to her future offspring!
Her dam was a stunning Fine Harness mare in her younger days, and her sire was shown in the 5-gaited Missouri circuits. She would make an absolutely super trail or dressage prospect. With Western Dressage gaining in popularity by leaps and bounds, Butterfly would be the perfect candidate. She is ready to finish YOUR way! Her movement is just astounding. We have both of Butterfly's parents here on the farm, so you can easily see where she gets her "good looks" and great movement from.
We currently have 14 horses, and the reality that I just do not have the time to spend with each of them is very sad for me to admit. It is sad for me to have to make the decision to sell Butterfly because I dearly love her. She was born on this farm... I have spend every day with her... and I had hoped that she would always be here. If you are interested in giving Butterfly a good forever home, I would love to talk with you.
We will consider a lower offer to an exceptional home... HOWEVER... we are very particular to whom our horses go to. For that reason, we will ask you personal questions regarding finances, commitment level, experience, and anything else that we feel is important on behalf of Butterfly. If you do not feel comfortable answering these sorts of questions, please do not contact us.
Buyer is responsible for shipping, although we might be able to deliver Butterfly within a reasonable distance. If long distance, we will be happy to help coordinate with some very trusted shippers that we know personally. Just let us know.
