Quarter Horse Mare for Sale in Spanaway, WA
Cute bay mare, great papers! Sweet temperment and ground manners. Great for farrier and vet, not Marish. -She would be perfect for an intermediate rider getting into reining or cows. Sug had advanced training in reining by age 5. With a reining savvy rider she knows spins, slides, stops, roll backs, automatic lead changes, Opens gates, side passes, backs. She is rusty. -She has been horse camping and trail riding, not a big enough stride for me and she does jump creeks. She has a slow easy trot and lope. She is sound, vet checks are welcomed. No lameness or needed maintenance. The bad.... I didnt fix any of the problems, I just worked around them to go trail riding because she was so cute and is actually a very sweet girl. -Sug cannot be tied to tack her up, she also likes

And you have to un-tie her before you open the trailer door or she will pull back. -Sug has sat in the pasture for the last year and is disrespectful when she doesn't want to be caught. For the first time ever she kicked my non-horsey husband and he had to go to the hospital. (He's healing good, but now he's more cautious of the back ends of horses).

About Spanaway, WA
Etymology: The Hudson's Bay Company, headquartered at Fort Nisqually, had control of this region until 1863. Company maps and journals show the company's subsidiary, the Pugets Sound Agricultural Company, raised cattle, grain, and sheep at "Spanueh Station" on the south and east shores of "Spanueh Lake." Spanueh is the Hudson Bay Company's spelling of the native Lushootseed spadue, which means "dug roots" referring to an area where camas and other edible roots can be found. Lushootseed underwent a loss of nasal consonants in the 1800s, so "Spanueh" simply transcribes an older pronunciation of what is now "Spadue". The first white settler to take a donation claim by the lake, Henry de la Bushalier, tried to rename the lake after himself. That faded away with his death one year later.
