Butterscotch

Hi everyone! I would like to take a few minutes of your time to tell you a bit about myself. My name is Butterscotch, hence my cool champagne color; not another like me here in the barn! I am a registered Kentucky Mountain Horse which means I am gaited. I am quite the ‘cutie patootie’. I am fine-boned, about 14 hands tall, and with very soft, sweet- almost feminine eyes. I was born in 2006 under the name, Ivory’s Angel Butter. I prefer Butterscotch. I was donated in December 2017 by Dennis Smolinski in memory of his wife. I was her horse. We went on a few trail rides and did some lessons together. Most of all, I was there for her to brighten her day. She loved me very much and gave me lots of attention. Dennis wanted a special place for me where he knew I would be loved and given attention. I get lots of attention. I am very cute and inquisitive which helps. I am also very unique and there’s not another Kentucky Mountain horse in the barn.

There are so many things for me to do here. I love all the games and activities in the ring. I especially love to be groomed. You may notice I like to play with the reins or lead line, please do not encourage this behavior. I am anxious to be a part of all these great programs. I am the perfect size for ground lessons and have very good manners. I am quite comfy to ride, you will notice my riders do not bounce when trotting on me.  I do have a forward, active walk. Please do not pull and hang on my head, especially at the trot. I need my head to carry myself in my gait. I guess it is more like a shuffle. It really isn’t that fast, which makes me perfect for the timid riders. I still provide input but not too much.

I will meet you all very soon! Looking forward to learning about all the different things we get to do here. You will notice how I light up when I see you coming to my stall. I really like to work. I am very perceptive so you will notice me checking out everything as we warm up. I just want to familiarize myself with the ring activities. I am smart and learn new things every day. See you soon folks!
