Update Summer 2015: Butters has become extremely friendly this summer. She has gotten her feet trimmed with light sedation with GSH's normal farrier instead of the vet. We are hoping to start her under saddle this summer!
Butters is slightly aloof, but she is getting more friendly every day. She's tough to catch in a large pasture, but not bad in a small space. Once caught she has good manners, will tie nicely and has started to learn how to lunge. She's had her front feet trimmed and we're working on the backs. With someone willing to give her consistent time and training she will likely come around pretty quick. She's a lovely mover and a very typey Saddlebred mare.
