2/13/1998 Black Tobiano Pinto Mare
Krissy (we changed her barn name, she is just too sweet of a mare to be called a Prissy),
is a very big, tested double homozygous black tobiano pinto mare.
When we bought her several years ago, she was measured by her previous owners at 15.3H.
She has an incredible disposition with lots of substance and muscle. She loves people and attention. She always comes running in the pasture when called to people that have treated her kindy and carry treats. She was very trusting with her newborn foals with people which allowed for easy imprint training of the foals. Her foals are some of the best athletes with such wonderful attitudes, movement and markings that I kept one of the foals for my personal riding horses for my retirement years.
She is an incredibly patient and tolerant mare with
ponying the young colts and has even had them jump on her neck
while she was doing so without reacting. Krissy will ride in a western or english saddle. She would probably ride bareback as she is not a picky mare about most things except when it comes to things that cause her pain.
She wears a snaffle bit and is used to a direct rein. BUT She would probably be a lot happier wearing a bitless bridle or hackamore.
When ridden in the past, her trot is very smooth and one person mentioned that it was like riding a big sofa. Definately a "ride a buck" contender. We have yet to see her spook at anything, including trains going by the road when she is being ridden. She can have short powerful bursts of speed, but will tire easily as she is out of shape from having a foal every year for the past 6 years or more. In the past, when ridden by guests on the trail, she remained calm and steady if the other lead horses galloped off , feeling no need to bolt afer them. She tends to settle into a nice slow jog or walk when ridden for an extended time. She is not light in the mouth, so is more tolerant of inaccurate cues by her rider. BUT her mouth is very soft because she has not been wearing a bit so she is going to hate being in pain from having a bit too tight or having her mouth constantly pulled on. She will tug at the reins and shake her head when her mouth is being hurt. . She also hates to be girthed up tightly suddenly. She is ok, if you take it gradually, but she will practically fall over or lay down if you yank it up in one big pull.
She is a very wide backed large mare that could easily carry a 250lb 6ft person. She is rideable and we usually put our beginner guest riders on her as not much excites her, but we consider her value is in being a broodmare. She has been our best producer of high dollar selling foals. She has been very easy to get in foal and is a great mother. She is built to have foals easily and she could have many more years of producing top selling foals.
We have kept her barefoot (never had shoes on) for years and with roaming around the acreage she keeps her feet shaped nicely and they are big and tough. Easy keeper. Does not require special feed or suppliments, just a nice low maintenance type of mare. Gets along and tends to make friends with everyone in the pasture, from the loner to the boss mare or gelding. We have used her for our AI collections, but have decided to get a breeding dummy as she is too good of a mare to stand around here.
We have found her foals to be beautifully marked, very tall, easy to work with and are extremely people friendly.
One foal was sold to a 911 NYC Police officer that raised and trainer her filly and rode her as the youngest horse in the NYC St. Patricks Day Parade.
Most of Krissy's foals seem to come out looking a lot like the sire.
We think her cross with our Black Arabian
stallion, Black Legacy, is producing some wonderful halter and sport horses.
Her 2007 B/W Pinto Arabian filly, Black Chaytan CTA, was shown at the PtHA World Show at 4 months old and became a
Res. World Champion Tobiano Color Mare (All Ages) - Pleasure and Saddletypes
Res. World Champion Pleasure Type Mare (All Ages) - Amateur Owner
TT World Champion Pleasure Type Mares 2 and under - Open
Pretty nice for a 4 month old baby competing in her first show against much older show experienced horses!
Vaccinated for Flu/Rhino/VEWT, West Nile and Rabies in May 2015. Easy to vaccinate and worm.
She has not been trailered since she was brought to our property many years ago when we bought her. So I don't know how well she travels or loads, but she seems to take new things with a "no big deal" attitude that I have seen and has always been good at tying and standing.
