Summer Pony

If you're friends with me on Facebook, this horse has been popping up in posts since the summer. She often has the same expression on her face--the chestnut mare side eye.
A lot of times I don't mention the horses I'm riding because circumstances can change as quickly as publishing a blog post.
Anyways, the owners decided she will be a permanent member of their barn, which means she gets a full post!
Her name is Nova and she's a registered 8 year old Paint horse. She's at least 14.3 hands, but it's more fun to call her a pony.
She has an elaborate registered name that calls back to her pedigree, however I can not remember what it is.
Being a green horse, the world is full of monsters and mayhem. A saddle stand? More like wooden Kraken monster. A water hose that sprays?! Brain melting.
For the summer we've gone on trail rides around the property. She's gotten more comfortable going alone and in a group. A turkey even decided to take flight under her nose and her spook was minimal!
Nova has been a lot of fun to ride, and I can't wait to have fun in all of the seasons with her.
