I bought a pony! Meet Lola

… and it’s another palomino Morgan mare. She’s 8 years old, nicely trained, and very calm and sweet (but has an impish side – she IS a pony after all, at 14 hands if she stretches.)

We are headed to a barn where we can get some help with training, getting used to each other, etc. There are wonderful trails – and yes, she trail rides. Feronia is at a different barn, but I might move Lola at some point.

She’s sturdy and up to my weight, but I am going to try to lose a bit for her sake.

Video from when I tried her

She comes from a breeder I really respect. Anne Wyland breeds very fancy trail Morgans that are rich in the show lines of past decades, and definitely can hold their own in the show ring. A lot of them come in pretty colors!

They come in all levels of spice, and while some are quite tall, others are little. Lola is on the low end of spicy (but not a deadhead), and one of the littler ones.

Here’s her baby pictures.

I am just so happy!

Congratulations!!! Upwey Ben Don is one of my favorite Morgans of all time (and I have Lippitts - go figure. LOL)

Upwey Ben Don was super handsome and typey, regardless of what the purists think. My older mare has 2 fairly close crosses to him via Kingston.

And… I live in the area where Orcland Farm and Waseeka Farm were - about halfway in between.

My older mare has been seen by 2 vets who are Orcutts - Dr. Bob Jr, and Helen (Orcutt) Noble. And the farrier for the Morgan filly I had years ago was also an Orcutt.

How nice to meet a new horse that is pleasantly pudgy instead of a hatrack 2. :smiley:

I don’t have the experience for the hat-racks, and I board, so as we’ve seen with some of them, things get complicated if the horse needs extra feed.
