    We are giving Daisy to a loving new owner. We purchased Daisy for 1.00 in July of 2007, (please see the thread "Daisy for $1.00). She had a body score of 1,5. We have dewormed her 2 times and fed and watered her. She is doing very well. We would like to find Daisy a good home with some sort fo a friend to live with. She is living with my sheep and is a great protector. Daisy does well with other horses as well. She has been a great trail horse in the past, as well as a good all around english show horse. Very dependable.
    I have skinny pics and I will take new ones as well if your interested.

    Hi! I'm located in MI, not too far away from you, looking for a horse that anyone can ride, including my hubby. He loves pally's and he needs something calm and experienced.

    How old is this mare, what special feed does she take, breed, etc. Please and thank you.

    This is an answer to an email I recieved. Please ask any questions.

    Lots of info, sorry so long.
    Daisy is 20 years old and 16 hands tall. Not sure she could take a heavy rider yet. When we owned her Daisy was my choice of trail horses because she was so dependable. She will move out if you ask her, she has a great ground covering trot, very nice collected trot and very smooth tight canter. Good english headset, not a peanut pusher. Before we owned her she was a working cow horse in Texas. We have never done the cow thing with her, but I see no problem, and she could live with cattle, she has no aggresion, or issues like kicking or biting. She would be fine in a lean-too with the cattle, she has a great coat coming in and I don't think she'll need a blanket. 5 of her teeth got knocked out in an incident with the previous owner, I'll let you know the story if you come to see her, it is not a nice one. They were just plain cruell, for no reason, Daisy was doing nothing wrong when they knocked her teeth out. She is a very well trained horse and is on the road to recovery. This horse does not require shoes including when she is being jumped. My daughter had a serious accident, back injury, so I purchased Daisy to give her back her riding confidence. My daughter showed her in all 4-H and equestrian team classes, except Jumping. We sold Daisy to a friend of my daughters, she had never riden a horse and within 3 months was jumping Daisy 3'6" on the equestrian team and 4-H, this horse babysat her all the way over the jumps, and never refused a jump. She is strong and well built. Very out of shape right now. She is the type of horse that tries hard, she does what you ask, she will litteraly run into a round bale if you ask, Ive seen it done.

    Please feel free to ask any questions.

    We would like to find the right home for Daisy and as I said if your not happy we will be gald to take her back. Daisy would make a great rescue, project horse.
    This is a pic of Daisy when we picked her up . The owner was riding her double down the road 3 days before the pic was taken. When we got there to pic her up, she had no food water, and there was no sign of any being fed at any time. The tank was bone dry and no mudd around it. She was so weak and dehydrated when we picked her up, she collapsed in the trailer, we only drove 5 miles form where she was to our farm. as far as living with the cows, I assume they get round bales, Daisy would do well on round bales, especially good cattle hay. But she does required grain morning and night, and she eats rather slow. All we want is for Daisy to go to someone that will love her and feed her and ride her, she is a willing horse that likes to work.
    We have not pulled a coggins, we are waiting for December, so the coggins will be good for 2008.

    Daisy is and has been sound. She has never required shoes, even when jumped. She has big strong legs and very nice hooves.
