Merry Legs

1998 Chestnut Miniature Horse Mare

Merry Legs was given her name the minute she walked off our trailer in January 2009, along with her traveling buddy Black Beauty.  Ellie named them both, and as you can tell there was a movie she was hooked on.

The kids enjoy riding her so much.

Here is Merry Legs standing on her walking trail.  We had to plow out her pen because when she arrived we had 3 1/2 feet of snow and she wouldn’t have been able to move.

She is a sweetheart and we look forward to our kids growing up riding her and learning from her.  For her small size, she sure can move, she walks faster than some of the full grown horses!
