Congratulations to her new owner!!
Read below for more information.
Keira is a very sweet horse with a calm temperament. She is happiest when being loved on and will follow you around all day long. Keira is a people-pleaser and wants to make you happy. She has had 30 days training, is well started to saddle, and ready to go in any discipline you choose. She is a bit shy of new things but is fine with a confident leader. Responds very well to training, as you can see in the video above.
She is an attention-getter, and we have even had visitors from out of town stop by just to meet Keira and her beautiful mom, Chroicoragh. We are downsizing our herd due to the fact that I have gone back to college full time with the goal of becoming a middle school art teacher :) Keira will be so happy to be in a home where she will receive all of the time & attention she deserves! We have enjoyed her so much.
Keira has found her forever home :)
I’m so happy to announce that Keira has found her new owner! Keira will be going back to see her buddy Dave for more training before she goes to her new home in Oklahoma. I’m so happy and excited that Keira will be going to a forever home where she will be ridden, loved, and spoiled rotten!
Congratulations to Bheki, Mike, and Diesel, on your newest family member!
Read more about Keira.
Keira is heterozygous for the grey gene, which means she has a 50% chance of passing it along to her young. For more on gray factor, read this blog post.
I have a hard time getting a good picture of Keira, since she’s always underfoot.
She has the sweetest personality of any horse I’ve met, and loves to be petted, brushed, and loved on, so anytime you go out she’s right there in your face. I never really understood what horse folks meant when they used the term “pocket horse” – now, I know. Actually, I think Keira would be more of a “Lap horse,” if she could!
With her graceful legs, rare coloring and dance-like trot, she’ll be a beautiful riding horse.
Here is a picture of Keira’s world famous sire, Lenny:
