Midas was born May 7th, 2011. Both his parents are APHA and I had all the paper work to send in to register him but I never did. (by the time we had the whole purchase sorted out and price agreed on it was over the time they give you to register without a fine and I just didn't bother doing it.) Midas Paint His dam was HYPP N/N, so no one panics. xD

Yearling winter:

2 year old spring:

2 year old summer:

2 year old fall:

He's been bridled, saddled, ground driven. I've laid over him bareback a few times and he's cool with having weight on him. He's at the point where I'm sure he's ready to move on but I had an awful incident with a horse I was riding a year ago that resulted in several broken bones and shattered confidence. I've ridden -once- since then and spent the most time in pain and terrified, even though the gelding was a trooper. So he's ready to go further, I however am not. I hope to gradually build up to the point I can actually -sit- on him without having a panic attack by spring (no fault of his own, he's been a complete saint about it). He's hands down one of the best minded horses I've had the pleasure of working with.

I don't know when I will have chance to get back to some undersaddle work,but somehow think my previous perfect pupil,maybe a handful next time out. I had taken her to vet last week & she was an angel there,let them do whatever to her. I have her stitches to remove coming up,should be interesting,unless she decides to put her big girl pants back on

I know how you feel - my filly can be an angel when she wants to be then will suddenly turn into a complete brat !!

This is my girl - born in June 2011. I haven't ridden her yet as she is still a bit immature in her mind, but I've saddled her and done loads of ground work. We started a bit of showing this year and I couldn't believe how well she behaved when we were out and about - why can't she be like that at home

Thank you for the warm welcome ya'll :)
Everyones youngsters are so stunning and the pics are amazing.
The farrier came today and im so proud of Cynder she stood there like a champ, she was very alert though but it was more so because she was curious. Also I tried a new farrier this time, and I must say he was awesome, very gentle and quiet with Cynder and did good job, Even with my older gelding who is normally a bit of a knothead to trim, was well behaved and took no time at all. And all for a reasonable price :)

and a couple pictures just cus I can...
head shots of Cynder, and Skipper(the sorrel giving his I hate you mom face, he just got dewormed hes not impressed), and a pic right after I turned them loose, they don't like me right now LOL

Sorry everyone who has a 2011 baby. I can't help it mine is the best ;D

Roman went on a trail ride on the road with Rosie and I today. We got barked at and nipped at by a yappy dog, saw trucks and cars go right by us, saw kids jumping and screaming on a trampoline (who got to pet both the horses), and cows. Not only was Ro in a new place but he has never been ponied before. This was his expression the entire time.

It has been cold the last week here,at night with windchill -40 temps
Needless to say haven't done much with ponies. Today felt balmy at -17 Have been wanting to do something with my girl,after about a month of not really getting handled let alone ridden. I climb up on her my insulated suit/snow boots & all,feeling rather clumsy . Well she didn't do anything,so we had a walk about the corral,she is remembering all her cues, staying light to contact. I just want her to not forget her little bit of training from the fall. Plan to send her to my trainer for march I don't know I can wait that long!! just so excited about finally getting her really riding & to the show pen

Haha know what you mean about today feeling balmy. I went outside and was like "oh wow, it sure warmed up!" Only to see that it was still -18!

Nice day out today so I thought i'd take girl for a spin. Unfortunately there is limited place to ride. Any cleared areas are too iced from the rain we had few days ago Only one strip in the donkeys pasture was good to go,so walked/trot around there & all was uneventful . I thought the nice deep virgin snow would be ok to ride in so took her off the path. Well she thought instead of ride a roll would be more appropriate to christen the snow....NOT
Brat!! Needless to say she had got told that wasn't part of the program!!

After Icemageddon in Dallas, we dealt with serious mud, so Cash has done nothing but munch hay for a few weeks. Hoping it's dry enough to do something after work tonight, because it's supposed to rain all weekend again.

*coughcough* 70 degrees in Texas xD

I've started getting Chase my poa ready for my niece to take over his training. He's been such an easy boy to start in his training. He's already loping under saddle now with just one or two taps on the side. He's gonna be a rodeo queen Pony in no time! Sorry no pics as I've been alone when I work him.
