This mare is good with my kids (ages 3,5 and 7). They can walk up to her and pet her whenever they want to. Dolly is only halter broke. She is 9 years old and due to have a foal in June. The stud was a smaller black mini. Dolly's had 3 foals for us, and she has had no trouble foaling on her own. Her coat turns a bit red in winter and back to a dark brown in summer. Dolly is very loved here, but my girls want a horse they can ride.
