Coco Chanel (Coco Loco, Chanel)
14.3 hh, 10 yrs old, going on 3. Noticing a pattern yet?
Coco is a Fresian/QH with lots of ideas. A LOT of ideas. Mostly all bad. The poor misunderstood pony of my lifetime. She is a coward, and scared of mostly everything, so she acts like she’s big and tough to cover her tracks. She tries to bully the other horses but is still at the bottom of the pecking order. She tries to bully the humans, and sometimes succeeds. She’s really well trained, and not yet broke. Want some leg yield and shoulder-in to the 4′ oxer? No problem. Want her to walk calmy on a loose rein? Not a chance. Go on a trail ride without bolting or flailing her legs at butterflies? Also not a chance. Stand tied quietly? Nice try.
She’s the newest kid, so I will have to update you when I know more about her. Fingers crossed she wants to do a 1* with me. Until then, we learn to walk…and trot without piaffing. It’s going to be a long road, but I’m up for the challenge. Thanks to Ingrid for this furry beast as well. 🙂
