peppys wanda bee may
Lovingly known as 'Bea', and registered as Peppy's Wanda Bee May. Bea is a 2016 striking sorrel mare with a light/flaxen mane and tail. She is a stout mare, standing right between 15 and 15.1 hands. She is beautiful to look at and is very kind to be around.
This quality mare is sired by Peppy Uh Huh ($86, 524 NCHA LTE), who is an own son of Freckles Playboy, who needs no introduction, and is out of a Peppy San Badger daughter. On the bottom side of her papers, Bea is out of a foundation and older cow bred mare, so she is bred to be a versatile athlete. She has plenty of watch and cow in her, but has the size and the brains of the foundation side.
Bea was started as a 3yo, and had about 60 days on her at that time, and then has been ridden off and on until the end of her 4yo year, when she was ridden more consistently. She has low miles, but a really good foundation to her education. She is extremely soft and supple in her mouth, face, body, and sides, can be ridden with or without spurs, and wants to find the answer and do the right thing. She has a big enough stride that she could cover ground as a ranch horse, or speed prospect, but has the disposition to be a quiet pleasure ride with more time in the saddle. She has been lightly started in the bridle, has been started on the flag and on cattle, has ridden out, etc. She is ready to go in the direction of your choice, be it cowhorse, ranch riding, versatility, roping, or other western disciplines.
Bea is easy to clip, bathe, vacuum, blow dry, tie, trailer, and is good for the farrier. She is in the middle of the pecking order, and can live on pasture, in a run, in a stall, alone, or in a herd.
She is sound, and has always been barefoot with the exception of one set of cowhorse sliders on her back feet. She does have one scar on her front leg and one scar on her back leg that happened when she was young and haven't affected her in any way.
Although she wants to be a quiet ride, Bea is sensitive and occasionally looks to her rider for fair leadership, so I would not recommend her for a beginner rider unless actively working with a trainer.
