Theatrical Affair, our horses are closely related on the dam's side. Roberto a few generations back, is most likely responsible for your horse's nice jump. I didn't even know my could jump well until he recently leaped over a 5' gate from a near stand still a few weeks ago. I'm only schooling 2'7", so I guess now I need to get my butt into gear. Enjoy him. He looks like he will make a fantastic jumper.

Do appendixes count ???

This is Drifter! He is a 16.2 Appendix, but honestly has more TB than QH in him. His QH side is made up of Appendix stallions who won enough points to be a "quarter horse" and breed to a TB for another appendix. The cycle continues.. Great Grandson of Seattle Slew on his dam's side. His grandfather is Turkey shoot.

Whiskey (Cadoc Cheval) is a 4 1/2 year old Appendix as well. Got him from some less than ideal conditions so we are working on that. His sire is Giant's Causeway, so he is a Storm Cat grandbaby! I can't wait until he blossoms into his own. I think he should be fairly pretty once he figures himself out.

Here's my baby girl, Buea Oak, aka Alahna! She had 25 starts with 5 wins and multiple places/shows. I believe she was retired because of a blown out knee, but she's perfectly sound now and will continue to a gaming and cow pony career :p

A before and after, plus one from her second ride undersaddle after I decided to restart her and her first show!

I love the posts with past race pictures!

Does it count if they are thoroughbred crosses? This is Mojo and he is not the color of a traditional thoroughbred (that's where the cross comes in) but he is built like one, he behaves like one, and he runs like he just came off the track. He sounds like a freight train, and he handles like one when at a full run. We actually tilled a makeshift race track along the inside of our 20 acre field so I have a place to let him stretch his legs. I actually prefer playing with dressage moves on him. He handles well when collected. Once I turn him loose, it's go time and it's hard to bring him back. My ultimate goal is to start jumping him. At 16.2, he's at least got the legs and the height.

Iseul, he's gorgeous! You've done an incredible job with him. Love the shot of him tied to the trailer. And of course as you see by my guy posted right after you, I'm very partial to buzz cuts. :) He looks great!

Thanks! She's come such a long ways, I'd never have imagined she'd end up as she is now! She handled her first show sooo well, I was very proud. Everyone there LOVED her!

I usually like a long mane, but hers was ruined when I got her (rubbed off to the point of a bloody scab halfway down her neck D: ) and I thought the mohawk looked perfect on her :p it looks great on your guy too!

Oops. I called her a him. :) Sorry about that. Great race shot too! It's too bad someone let her become so neglected after giving them her all. Glad she's in good hands now. :)

Thanks (: and no problem..the farrier still calls her a him xD
The thing is, apparently she was suppose to be this guys new barrel horse for the big shows he goes to, but he only rode her once and "didn't have time"..He only rode her once because he was absolutely ridiculous and confused the ever living..anything out of her, haha. And then the ad said that she's "unpredictable"..The only thing I haven't been able to predict is her undersaddle freak moments. And those really aren't that bad, she'll dance in place or bolt..and all you have to do is holler hey or turn her and she goes back to normal, lol. Apparently the guy's wife was terrified of her and wanted a pleasure horse, so she was being sold..Oh well, I got the best of that problem :p She has soo much heart. She's very into her own ways, but with a bit of persuasion/incentive, she gives everything she has to do as asked. That's what I love about thoroughbreds. Plus, she has cow sense somehow! How sweet is that!? Lol

This is my TB, Andy! Racing name is De Anza. He had eight starts but I'm pretty sure he didn't place in any of them, so he flunked out of his racing career. He likes people, food, and shoulder scratches.



Looking after my non-horsey mother
