Ruby is broke, can back, will pony other horses, and
can be hobbled. She picks up all her feet, has her feet trimmed regularly, is UTD on shots and dewormer, and is excellent
at lungeing. Very easy to catch and is very friendly. She'll be low to the ground and WIDE, built for tight corners
at high speed. I originally thought she would
make 15 hands, but I've changed my mind - now I'm thinking more like 14.2 or 14.3, something like that. Although,
her string test says she'll be 15H, don't know if having a baby so early in life will effect her final height much.
She was slightly under 14.0H on 5/2/09, on 11/27/09 she measured 14.0 1/2" H, and on 6/13/10 she was about 14.1H.
We got a round to measuring her in April 2014 and she finished off at a little better than 14.2H.
Ruby was taken on a Montana backcountry
unit elk hunt in September, 2011. She was used as a riding and pack horse. She did excellent! Too bad we
were snowed out and had to leave before getting an elk. We went back to hunt the later season, but did not bring horses
Ruby also got some experience with cows fall, 2011. She was used to help gather and chase cows
around a half dozen times. She did really well. She likes to get out and move, rides around with her ears up,
and can be used to push cows from the back of the pack or will happily be the lone, lead horse in front of the group.
Sure-footed, and extremely smooth to ride, whether it be at the walk, trot, or lope. She was used to pony a horse that
she was unfamiliar with and was excellent. Doesn't get worried or fidgety if she and her rider are left alone somewhere.
Sept.2016 Update: Ruby had a horrible injury from barbwire last fall(lots of exposed bone), but has healed remarkably well
from it. She managed to keep in foal through it all though and had a Famous Black Ty bay filly this Spring! What a trooper!
