These are trully adorable horses...the mane alone just makes ya want to own one!. Love everyone's pictures! But, I fell for "adorable" once, "broke w tradition" and got a haffie - and once is enough for me...the haffie is a little busy body!!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I learned a lot about horses using a fjord. The first horse I ever worked with was a 4-6 month old fjord weanling. His name was gunner and he taught me everything, I found that they bond to the person who works with them most. Gunner would not let anybody but me do anything with him, and he wasn't even my horse. Sadly gunner died because he was a runty little thing (half the size of what he should have been) but he taught me many things.

Coffeemama, one of those rescued foals-in-the-making is niw my boy, Maximus. He's truly my heart-horse, the greatest equine buddy I've ever had and I'm so grateful Goldenhorse rescued his mom and that I stumbled across him!

Wonderful photos!

Riding October of 2010. We were both quite... stout. He has since slimmed down. I, however, have not. Figures.

Wow, what a beautiful story.
I can't believe someone would put a pregnant mare through a scratch sale.

Yikes. He looks SO much better in 2012, lol!
I'm going to my laptop right now to redeem him, lol!

He's really turned into a phenomenal partner.

Let's see, his 2012 resume includes, umteen trail rides, some of which my son's 2 year old pony was dallied to us (fun to 'ride' two bickering child-brained beasts at once), chasing and holding up buses (friend has a company hired to do these things), a handful of little backyard shows in English and WP, and most recently, frocklicking (with me aboard) in belly-deep ditch snow. I'm throwing everything I can at him and he's embracing it all... with exception to the speakers at the shows... whenever we're under them and a gait change is called, he pulls AIRS. I wish my ringside friend had the camera that day, cause of course no one else saw it, but I was chewing on forelock every time we came around. Pffft. Unathletic, my arse... Lazy is clearly more toward the truth.

Thanks Miss May! Now I'll stop gushing, cause I know everyone's going to be sorry anyone asked.
