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; there is 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, standing about 14 hands tall, with very soft, sweet eyes. I was born in 2006 under the name, Ivory’s Angel Butter. I prefer Butterscotch.
I was donated in December of 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 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 the attention I was used to. He certainly picked the right place as I get lots of attention here. Of course, I am very cute and inquisitive which helps.
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 the perfect size for ground lessons and have very good manners. I am also 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 or 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.
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 see me checking everything out as we warm up. I just want to familiarize myself with the ring activities. I am smart and learn new things every day. If you want to read more about me, check out the story in our 2019 annual report.
