Get to Know Shy
This sweet Tennessee Walking Horse mare’s registered name is Pushes Spotted Prodigy, but she’s fondly known as Shy. This beautiful mare had a lot of fun adventures out on the trails up until a few years ago. She appears sound and may still enjoy going out on the trails. She was said to be a lot of fun to ride. Shy would also make a very nice companion for a mare or gelding, and she has lived with both in the past. She is easy to handle, stands well for vet and farrier, doesn’t mind having a stall with daily turnout, and is just as happy living outside 24/7. She gets excited when she sees an open trailer and marches right in.
