Eeeee!!!!!

I got to ride a Friesian today!
EEEEEE!!!!!
Srsly, I actually clasped my hands under my chin when my instructor said she had one available, and squeed once she left to get the saddle.  
The lady who owns the barn I ride at (which is very well maintained) has a farm where she breeds Friesians.  She's got about 40, and just isn't able to take care of them like one really should.  So Sauna (that's how it's pronounced, I'm sure that's not how it's spelled) is at the barn for several months for some TLC.  My instructor looked in her eye and got lost.  She's 21, due to foal next year (yeah, I know....), and has some mud fever on her back legs.  And she is absolutely gorgeous.  I've been in love with this breed for years, and they're just incredible in person.  And she has such a good temperament.  Light exercise is good for mares in early pregnancy, so I'm going to be walk/trotting her while she's at the barn, on my days off, for free. :D  I'm going in tomorrow to help with her legs, and to try to get a brush through her tail.
She's not "arena broke", in that she doesn't automatically stay on the rail, so worked on that in the ring.  That lovely high neck means you can just leave your hands in place.  And her trot is just incredible.  As my instructor said, I wish I could have gotten her ten years ago.
