    Aww thank you so much!! I wish I could explain how great minded she is. She loves working cows, but she also loves showing. She never puts her ears back and I can literally feel her trying for me any time I ask. She might not be the best mover or the best conformation, but being really good minded has sure helped us at shows...eg. at Worlds 2017, we were getting ready to go do trail, and one of the other competitors (in a different class) and I got to talking. We were watching the live feed of the arena, and many horses were looky or a little spooky. She mentioned that most horses usually freak out a little their first time in the big arena by themselves, so I started to get a little nervous for our turn. When we finally went in for our trail pattern, she put her head down and just tromped through the pattern better than I ever could have asked...you would have thought she was a 20 year old show horse that had seen anything, instead of a 3 year old at her first world show.
