    Blaze, I 've sold off most of my Arabs. I've just kept a couple of special ones and one that's old enough I won't sell her.

    My trainer finally convinced me that I should try breeding a QH or two and he will sell them for me. I hate trying to sell my horses, I'm just too attached to them to be any good at it.

    I still LOVE training babies and I'm good at it, so I wasn't really ready to totally quit, just going to do things on a MUCH smaller and not such high level competition scale. We just want to do some small local shows and have time to just play with the horses now. Hopefully the drought will stay busted and won't be back any time soon.

    That's kind of what im hoping to do as well. But im working more with performance horses. I do want to get into Reined Cowhorses but ill send my foals off to be trained but I don't want to be out of the horse training so im breeding one performance bred horse at a time and training them out then starting another. I've got my first on the way!

    I do everything to get them ready to go under saddle. I'm too old to take all that a youngster can throw at me anymore so I send them out to get started. With these that I'm breeding now, I'll send them to Tom as 2 year olds and get 90 days on them and see if they can be shown and sold. If they're not quite ready, I'll ride them all over during spring, summer, fall and then back to Tom for more training after show season is over. He's a really good trainer/horseman and he actually enjoys the sales part of it, which I totally don't, so he's a good one to have joined up with for me.

    The fillies I just bought, Goldie will go to Tom in the spring, and Wart will go in fall/winter. Goldie is already a 2 year old but a little immature yet, so I'm holding off for 6 more months on her. Wart is just a long yearling, so by next winter, she'll be a long 2 year old and should be good to go. After her, it's Bo's turn and so on, right on down the list.

    I actually just got the courage to start breaking mine myself. I've put 5 rides on a gelding I raised and handled myself and he's my dream horse. I have no idea he will be my go too guy in the future. If I ever decide to keep a stud or keep a horse depending on what my trainer thinks ill either send them off to be trained professionally or I might just try to train them myself with weekly instruction from a trainer. Im not huge on youngster antics but so far my gelding hasn't done anything untrustworthy. I've been on him bareback, saddled, and he's never done anything. He's my guy =)

    You mean Goldie and Wart? I'll try to take some pics this weekend. They weren't in good coat when I bought them and they were both a little on the skinny side. NOW......ROFL, they're little butterballs and shining.....looking a lot better. I need to take some new pics of them.

    For years I started everyone and rode all the rank ones. Now.....eh......not so much. I just can't take the tossing that a youngster can decide to do. The way I work with them to get them ready, it's actually pretty rare for one to throw a good wall eyed fit anymore but if they do and I hit the ground...I break, not bounce anymore.
