We traded a mare (See Royal to the Bone
aka Diana on the HORSES SOLD page
) for Tootsie and her foal, and when Tootsie arrived, she was extremely standoffish. Wouldn't let us touch her.
Now she is far more friendly, though still isn't all the pleased when she sees ropes. She is from Oregon, and not only
is beautiful, but brings new bloodlines to Utah. Tootise is easy to get along with, not a remarkably dominant mare,
but neither is she a wimp who gets beaten up by our lead mare. We are glad to have Tootsie in our herd and look forward
to seeing the foal she'll produce with Hank in 2005.
We love her colt, Mr. Dude
and are sure the foal she throws with Hank
will be as smart, docile and good looking.
