Appaloosa mare

Burn 'N With Class

This week we'd like to welcome "Burn 'N With Class", an 11 "years young" Appaloosa mare. Baylee, as she is known to her friends, is owned by Sandi Birkland of Orillia, Ontario and boards at a private stable with Sandi's other horse, Cool Eye Jack. This striking 16.2 hh mare has completed Level 1 Parelli, does basic dressage, and is a great trail horse. In fact Baylee has the distinction of being only one of two "Horses of the Week" that this photographer has actually ridden. I can tell you that she is indeed a wonderful trail horse, keeping this out-of-practice rider safe and sound! She is also special to me for helping me win my first equestrian photography contest with this endearing photo of Baylee and her owner's young daughter.

Her owner describes Bailey's appearance as brown, black and white with spots and a big, big butt!! This pretty appy likes her buddy Jack, carrots, trail riding, the comforts of a barn, or at least her run-in shed and Sandi's back pocket when something spooks her!! Her dislikes include being left alone, short ponies, not being played with, and being last on a trail ride (this I found out first hand!).

Sandi says Baylee is a chicken at heart but is getting braver as she progresses through her Parelli - she has come such a long way. She is also very gentle when around her daughter Breanna.

A big pat on the neck to Baylee for being our August 7th, 2006 Horse of the Week!
