Bought Dora as a 4mt old foal ,at a sale ,straight off her dam who was an irish draft bay cob approx 15.2 hh with no white markings . I was told her sire her sire was TB but this doesn't explain her colour ! She was unhandled except when she was micro chipped in a cattle race . She had been running on Bodmin Moor which explains her tolerant attitude to traffic .She didn't trust anyone but became friendly helped by the influence of food and of my old cob Bessie.Handled her regularly and began her breaking
