Thanks for all the replies! I am eager to get more opinions! As for some questions asked...
Breeze is a coming 3 year old (2011) purebred quarter horse, but was not registered and I do not know who the sire was. I have given up trying to find out who he was, so Breeze will forever be grade... she is my forever horse and I am wanting to try different things with her, including barrel racing. She has speed and loves to run around, and she is also very cowy...
Promise is a coming 4 year old (2010) registered quarter horse. I have only had her for a short amount of time (Just over a month) and I am still getting to know her, but she was around cattle before I got her, although I am not sure if she is cowy or not. She runs around with the other horses, but she is a bit on the lazy side when I am working with her... I am trying to get her to be a little more active.
Both horses are not started, but they will be by the summer, so for the first year, at least, they will just be trail horses, and get a more solid foundation before I move onto teaching them, or sending them off for training in a more specific discipline.
As for showing... I am wanting to take Promise to AQHA shows around Saskatchewan in this years show season to participate in Halter classes, if she will be good at it, to get her use to the show scene... and maybe move onto showing undersaddle next year, or in a couple years time.
As for Breeze, since she is not registered, I cannot compete with her in AQHA shows, so I will be taking her to local open shows when I can to participate in Halter, and in a couple years, undersaddle. I am trying to get into the show scene myself, but I am also interested in doing something with cows, and team penning is what caught my eye the most. I have always had an interest in barrel racing.
Promise may be for resale, as was originally planned, but I have grown to like her a lot and think she may be good for me, but resale is not out of question, and if I do sell her, she will go for more money if she has some professional training on her, so I was thinking about sending her to a reputable trainer to be trained for penning, sorting, cutting or something like that.
Again, sorry the pictures are not the greatest.
