||Eighteen years old|
||Dutch Warmblood Horse|
||Yorkshire, England, UK|
is my horse Ikoss. She is eighteen years old and we bought her from Holland
ten years ago. She is a Dutch Warmblood and an amazing showjumper. She loves
hacking out, although she gets spooked easily! She hates mud and loves
extra strong mints. She even lets my boyfriend sit on her and remains very
well behaved! She had a foal three years ago, Archie, which put some strain on
her physically, but she is going strong! She was already named Ikoss and we
have no idea what it means or if it even means anything in Dutch.
She is extremely friendly and will come to anyone even when she is loose in
the field. She does buck sometimes when she is excited (or when it is very
windy, no idea why!) but she is a very safe horse. In my eight years of riding
her she has never thrown me off or galloped off with me.
She does not like fishermen or ponies pulling carts, I think it confuses
her! Even though she is getting on a bit she is very energetic and
enthusiastic, she loves to jump and most importantly, she is a girl who
loves her food! I love her!
