I happen to own one appaloosa and one pintaloosa =)
This is Bo, he is going on 4 (3 1/2 in this pic):
(Boyfriend in the background)
He is very sweet, and very comical. I believe he has ADD lol. I got him from a an appy breeder. They had a awesome leopard stallion that was very well trained (I say had becuase he passed away just this previous spring.)
Your mare is very gorgoues, and her sweet personality doesn't surprise me. =)
She is lucky to have kind and caring owners like you.
I'm assuming your husband rode in the saddle last? lol Your stirrups are a bit long ;) Has anyone ever mentioned a saddle pad? Normally they are put under the saddle to help it fit better and less likely to cause saddle sores. I would recommend to always put one on under the saddle, I always ride with one on. =)
I know nothing about Saddlebreds, lol.
