When we purchased Carmello in July of 2007 she was a six month old filly. She was Marbles foal and was still nursing so she was included with the purchase of Marble...Marble is no longer part of our herd.We don't use Carmello much. She is just a hay burner right now until she gets some training. Steven has gotten a saddle on her, but she has not been ridden much. She would be a great size for kids, if only we would break her. We need to find and invest the time in to training her. She is nine just like Adam.  Maybe sometime in the future Stephanie can help Adam train Carmello to be his horse.
