So catching up on this years goings on I would like to introduce my girls to you. So first up is Melody
Scorned Woman – Barn name Melody, I didn’t like the name scorned woman, far too harsh and did not suit or fit her beautiful personality.
She is a 5 year old OTTB (Off The Track Thoroughbred) and retired from racing in November 2013. And she was at the time of buying her 16hh, although I need to measure her to see if she has finished growing.
She only ran a handful of races and her old owners decided she just didn’t have the heart to be a race horse. And wanted to find her a home as a brood mare or a home where she could have a new career.
As soon as I saw her for sale I fell in love with her. I have a big soft spot for grey horses as growing up as a teenager I had a grey horse called Caspian, at the time he was my world and like any teenager who loves horses I spent every waking minute with him, riding, brushing him or just hanging out at the barn.
And now as an adult I get to do that all over again!
