To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse."

Great thread! Diamond is gorgeous Smrobs...but I'm guessing he has a red head personality? ;)

This is my little red head, complete with the attitude xD Her name is Sour; she's a 34" tall, 5 year old miniature horse. Used to be a demon, but now she's actually a very nicely rounded little cart pony. I actually just hooked her up to the cart again for the first time in three months because our cart broke, and she didn't take a single step wrong. Not bad considering she only has about a year under cart, with only about the first 4 months of that being consistent!





And this is Corona; a ~8 year old (I'm always forgetting if she's 8 or 9) TWH (or so we think) mare. I don't own her but I did most of her retraining. She tries real hard but tends to be very impulsive. I sure do love her coloring though! I was actually told she's sabino because of the white markings that have shown up on her in the past few years. Pretty cool.

(not me riding her so the rider is blurred out)

LOL, well, it's not any fault of his. Some seriously bad training experiences have caused him to be a habitual bucker. That's why he was given to me. He wants to be a good horse, but that bucking just seems to be hard-wired in his brain.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sort of a Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde horse, huh? LOL, well I'm glad he fell into your hands. He's lucky; most habitual buckers end up as dinner even though most of the time it isn't their fault.

I suppose that Tiny qualifies as a chestnut. He's a 27 year old Belgian mule
He wasn't too keen on having his picture taken LOL


And this is back in his prime
Rafe, of course :), is so handsome. Tiny, though, I just love him! He is so adorable in that first picture of him.

I'm in love with Rafe. Such a pretty big boy. How tall is he? He looks super smooth and huge with you on him smrobs or are you just short?! ;) And who doesn't love a Belgian? I have always wanted to own a Belgian or a Percheron. I'm a sucker for tall horses. Rascal is my shortest at 16.1. My other two are both 16.2. At 5'11" I need some horse under me. LOL! My shorty is 15h and he belongs to my 9 year old. Keep 'em coming y'all. I love seeing other people's red horses!

LOL, thank you . He's currently standing 16.2 and probably weighs 1400 now that he's trimmed down from being in work. He's not really all that smooth, but his strides are so long that he's really easy to ride. His movement isn't jarring, but it is big.

I'm relatively short as well, only 5'5 .
