Circumstances change.  I know mine did.  Never think you are immune to life events that change your plans.  It  is with a heavy heart that – for a very short time – Mary offered Chelsea for sale with five months of professional handling and ground training at Faith Training Center in Lakeville, IN.  I am happy to say this story has a happy ending and Chelsea is staying with Mary!

(Just to clarify since I’m being asked a lot – Chelsea is not being worked hard.  She has not been saddled or ridden.  She has learned about all she can until she is older.   She is mostly just handled daily to reinforce what she already knows, along with some light longing.  She is very sound and Mary is very careful to keep her that way.)

Chelsea is a sweet, in your pocket yearling, recently measured at 14.3H!  Expect her to grow to at least 15.3H.  Chelsea is registered with the ApHC and ICAA.  Five panel clean by default, she will produce foals eligible for ApHC, ICAA, Colorado Ranger, and Sportaloosa registries, to name a few.  She will produce FAHR eligible foals if crossed with a stallion rated by FAHR at 86.25% or higher.

SOLD in June 2016 – Congratulations, Mary Lilliel!

Chelsea is a joy to handle, leads, ties, stands for farrier, and halters with ease.
