Ellie (Ms Elliott)
2018 palomino Quarter Horse mare; 14.2h
April 16, 2021: We regret to announce that Ms Elliott (Ellie) is scratched from the Buckeye Bonanza Horse Sale this spring. Her student trainer noticed that she was slightly off on her right front leg at the trot at the start of class on Wednesday afternoon. Ellie was evaluated by our veterinarian on Thursday who found no swelling in her leg and noted that her condition was not aggravated by hoof testers or flexion tests. She was evaluated by our veterinarian again this morning and although she has already shown slight improvement from what is thought to be a soft tissue injury, the decision was made to scratch her from the sale. We are hopeful and confident that she will make a full recovery and continue her training this summer and fall. If so, she will be offered at our next Buckeye Bonanza! Thank you to our prospective buyers who had already submitted bid on Ellie – we appreciate your interest and support of our program!
Ms Elliott (aka Ellie) is by CL Tuff Buck, an ABRA World Champion and AQHA halter and performance point earner. Her maternal granddam, Flowers Ms Ivy, earned more than 200 AQHA points in Western Pleasure, Showmanship, Trail, and Halter classes. Ellie was born and raised at The Ohio State University Equine Facility and has been handled extensively since birth. She was started under saddle this semester in the Advanced Equine Behavior and Training class and is progressing nicely with her student trainer. She is an excellent all-around prospect and with continued training and experience, she should do well in a variety of disciplines.
