Tosca has a longer tale than is necessary to include here but the short version is that she was sold as a baby but back here with us for the last few months. Tosca is 16.3 hands at 3-1/2 years old and a lovely bright bay. Out of our unbelievably serene Isabelina and by Gitano, Tosca has the big personality we expected from the pairing of two of our favorite personalities. Tosca is named for the beautiful opera. She would prefer to be with people over other horses.
Valente started working with Tosca a bit in our round pen to sell as a riding horse and very quickly decided she was fine to start under saddle. Tosca is one of the easiest we have ever started, We are both amazed at how willing and happy Tosca is to work. Still green, but on the 6th ride, Valente took her down to our bottom hay pasture and trail rides her all around and she has never so much balked at anything. I think Tosca looks beautiful with a dressage saddle and much to my surprise, as Valente hasn't ridden a mare around here in years, he just loves Tosca and finds her gaits very comfortable. Tosca would make someone a wonderful and lovely pleasure horse some day.
However, a past buyer came along and said he wanted her but in foal to Kairo. So we bred her, she took on the first breeding cycle and the buyer vanished! Therefore, Tosca is here and now not being ridden and hanging out with all the pregnant mares. Her foal will be for sale in utero.
