About Shyloh

Shyloh facts:
  • Haflinger
  • Mare
  • 13.3 hh
  • 8ish
  • Chestnut
  • Working on riding, starting back with line driving. Trail in hand champs!
  • Shyloh has gone through so many changes and milestones since I brought her home. She went from a shy scared horse to a wonderful, funny, hard working horse. I encourage anyone to read the blog to see her progress.
  • She is still shy with people she does not know, but she opens up a bit more quickly. Especially if you have treats.
  • I try to stay away from processed treats and sugary treats as much as I can. Shy works well for almonds, sunflower seeds, and timothy pellets.
  • Shy is also a big fan of any berry, carrots, apples, bananas (including peel), sugar free peppermints, applesauce, dandelions, sugar free LifeSavers, sugar free Jolly Ranchers,  and dried spit peas.
  • Shy does not like pumpkin, squash, green beans, whipped cream, chocolate, ice cream, or ravioli.
  • Other foods Shy has tried (in tiny moderations): Funfetti cupcakes, broccoli, cauliflower, Cheese Its, Cheddar and Sour Cream chips, pretzels, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
  • Shy prefers living and working/riding outside to inside. She currently lives outside on a 15 acre pasture with 4 other horses.
  • Shy will attempt anything I try with her: barrel racing (not very fast though), jumping, driving, dressage, tricks. She is a good girl.
  • We show in a driving circuit, even though Shy does not drive anymore. 
  • Shy also shows lead line with Lily, next year we hope to be moving up to walk/trot!
  • Shy can be sassy. But that is part of the fun!
  • She is very independent. She has no problem with other horses and does enjoy the herd, but she will go off on her own when she wants to without a problem.
