"Joy" is a real joy to have around-The benevolent dictator of the farm.  She is our resident babysitter, peace-keeper, husband horse. If I have a skittish or spooky horse-I put them out with Joy and within no time they are far less reactive to new things-simply learning by her example. She is the first horse I choose if I want a quiet, uneventful ride. She's always been one of those horses you can just hop on and ride-even after extended time off. We bought her as a riding mare and also to cross with Saben when he is old enough to produce colorful Azteca foals. I was actually looking for an Andalusian mare, but I just fell in love with this big girl when I met her. And she is a dream to ride. Not much bothers her.  I can even work on my commercial size tractor within feet of her. Her biggest response is turn an eye in my direction to make sure I am watching where I am going! I can even run the lawnmower right next to her and she doesn't bat an eye. She is built like a tank, but is easy going and gentle. If you like that halter horse conformation, combined with really nice movement and a great temperament, come and check her Out.

She was trained and shown in Western Pleasure/Halter when she was younger. She has also been shown as a hunter, and although she will jump-she has such a big build I wouldn't recommend her for any serious jumping. She would be great as a equitation horse or hunter in the flat classes. I have also done some low level dressage with her. Her past couple of years have been as a pleasure/trail horse-babysitter, so her ring work is probably a little rusty. I will be tuning her up in the Spring.

Current coggins dated 12-2-2009, current on dentistry, hoofs, and vaccines. Hock x-rays from 12-2009 available. HYPP tested N/N


Her color is minimal-the left side of her face is white, and she has three stockings. She also has some light roaning across her shoulders and at the base of her tail and she carries the overo gene,
so may produce some really loud colored foals!

You can't really see what a chunk she is under that heavy blanket,
but doesn't she have an adorable face:)

"Joy" is just that, a real joy to have around.  She is built like a tank, but sweet as can be.
We bought her as a riding mare and also to cross with Saben when he is old enough to produce colorful Azteca foals.
I was actually looking for an Andalusian mare, but I just fell in love with this big girl when I met her.
And she is a dream to ride. Not much bothers her.  I can even work on my big tractor within feet of her, and her biggest
response is turn an eye in my direction to make sure I am watching where I am going!
Her color is minimal-the left side of her face is white, and she has three stockings, but she carries the LWO gene,
so may produce some really loud colored foals for us!
Anyone looking for a colorful, agile, noble, brave, beefcake  of a baroque horse, check back for Joy's next foal!
Joy has been lab tested HYPP negative.



Joy-late March, 2007-looking about as thrilled with the Spring snow-storm as I am!
