Marrietta Roby's Mare Sadie from Beatys Butte, Oregon
5.5 by 8.5 inches Graphite on #110 Paper
Marietta decided to take the pretty sorrel mare and find a suitable new home for her. Marietta was concerned about the mare because she was due to be sold as a wholesale lot because of her age and her untrainable status. Marietta said that she and the mare bonded quickly and deeply, "She is the most awesome horse!"
These days Marietta uses the mare on the ranch to help work with young untrained mustangs. Sadie is also a demonstration horse who works with Marietta in bridleless flag presentations. The mare that was untrainable and dangerous works bridleless, is a very useful working mustang, and has a become a wonderful working partner and companion with Mariette.
