^^ awww tough luck! Yeah, I just discovered that site myself and I am always checking it out to see exactly what kind of horse I'd want in the future. But, I can't even start riding until after I get back from a semester of studying abroad in Japan next fall. So until then, I can only read, research, and dream... ::sigh::

What are you going to use it for? Do you have a trainer who can help you find a horse? I personally think that personality and ability to do what you want are far more important then getting a specific breed, unless you plan on showing in certain shows. You get wonderful individuals and horrible ones in every breed.

^^ Oh, well, since I am still quite a novice rider as of now, my first goal actually is to find a good instructor and begin taking lessons. After I have ridden a while and feel ready for the responsibility, then I can think about getting a horse. Ah, but priorities first: College, job, career..... when I do eventually get a horse, I want to make sure that I am well balanced in all of these areas so that I can give the best to my horse as I hope he will do for me.

it's great that you want to get your self set out well first! so many people don't worry about that kind of stuff, buy a horse with no experince and then get screwed! it's really nice to see that. you better stay around the horseforum...i like ya!

hahah, I really like it here so I plan to stay here a nice and long while.

Ohhh, yeahhh, I showed the horse to my boyfriend *I think all this sudden talk about me liking horses is starting to pull him in* and he fell in love with the picture above! I agree... I absolutely LOVE coloring like this but my all time favorite (and please correct me if I am wrong since i am just learning all these terms), but I believe it's called a Buttermilk Buckskin coloration

^^^ that horse is for sell too.... I think she is a qh.... beautiful

^^ ahh yeah, I looked up some stuff about Icelandic horses the other day.... they look so cool! Hmm, but I am wondering if it'd be happy where I am, because it is a horse that is used to cold harsh weather and I live in the deep South of the US.... I have only seen snow about 3 times in my entire life! haha XD

You are on the right path in the horse world lessons first We purchased a horse then my husband took lessons on her. It can go either way but lessons have to be in there somewhere I have a Rocky Mountain filly with that same coloring. I don't have any really great photos of her. Here is one of her snowy nosed self. I love the rocky breed, one you might look into. Buckskins have alway been one of my favorite colors too.

^^ haha what an adorable picture! And yes, I will definitely look into it! :

And yes, I do plan on taking lessons, after I get through other things in life. (aka: studying abroad in Japan for a semester ) So, as soon as that is done, I am going to most likely seriously start taking lessons. I am so excited even thinking about it though!
