This young mare has really shown us what she is made of considering her first week of work was in an indoor arena during the 50 mph winds of last week’s hurricane. All of the rattling of the building didn’t even faze her as she quietly went to work as if nothing was unusual about the day. She worked all four days in the windy conditions with two different riders and was extremely consistent in every ride. That is a testament to her quiet, confident nature, but she does have a little bit of sassiness to her that keeps her from being a total deadhead. Of course she is still very green, but she has a good foundation, grasps concepts quickly, and will make a nice prospect for someone who has experience training young horses.
French is just as quiet and respectful to handle on the ground, stands well for the farrier and didn’t even mind the clippers being used to trim her face. In turn out she is best friends with her pasture buddies seeming to like a quieter group to go out with.
Her dam, Rodin, is also in our barn (soon available for adoption) and French definitely inherited a lot of her personality from her dam. High Cotton, her sire, was a triple stakes winner at three and was first or second in six stakes races on two different surfaces, making him a competitive, talented sire which she seems to have inherited from him. French has no apparent injuries, should be suitable for any discipline, and has no vices.
