"Horses and cats are good!!!" I don't know about the pacheco pass..Must be a commute??
I'll have to friend you on here to keep in touch..My hubby stays gone during the wk while working he just stay's there and comes home on the weekends..Horses are my passion in life I have to have one...I had two different types of arabs before my appy I have now..I hated my H for it but had to get rid of them..He was upset because I went off one and broke my arm..Crazzzy! Things like that happen sometimes.

Thanks for the compliment
They're not only good looking, they're also very good kids. They chose us, btw. Patino made crystal clear he wanted to come with us, and we just couldn't leave his buddy Snipper behind( bad situation). Beau started licking my hand, eyes closed, off in Lala land....done deal also.....that's how I pick my horses

That could have happened with any horse....so I take it he's not into horses?

Yea at that time I don't know what he was thinking, I am still sore about it and it was over 4yrs ago this happened...I am sore because I raised the Polish Arab from the time he was 1yr...His mother died giving birth so his odd werent good but he made it..And had a personality!!! Then I later got a mare she was Spanish Arab 2 when I got her and had her four yrs..But the gelding I had for over 15yrs...Now I am doing it all over again with a five yr old appy...So this time hopefully it wont get taken away from me.. This appy was "trained" at two yrs of age I don't know much history just that kids rode him and a lady had to get rid of him because she was preggers/she gave him to some ppl w/a dairy farm and he was put out to pasture w/dairy cows!!! For a whole year!!! Eating nothing but their kind of food....He got real skinny
They realized they couldnt take care of him so found my niece to give him too for a couple hundred bucks..She got him at three yrs of age and did nothing w/him just focused on putting on weight...Once she realized he was to much horse for her I opened my mouth w/the idea "I can train him I did two horses before" ha ha ha!!! I got him for free, but board him down on her property..Its the same property I am on - she is just down our road..So he gets to stay w/2other horses..
This is the first big horse I have ever had. I had a quarter horse once w/my arab gelding but sold him then later got that mare I was talking about, but this guy is 16.3hh and just turned 5!
I didnt know if he had been ridden or what when I got him I just knew he was PUSHY! He would try to intimidate you when you walked in his stall by walking into you!! After a wk of me ground working him he don't do that anymore..Ive only taken him out to ride on the property twice so still don't know him well enough yet I just have to trust in my ground work I've done w/him...(He spooked a lot when I took him out those 2 times) but he gives to pressure and you can refocus his mind easily..So its all fun for me again!
Annnndddd Yea that can happen on any horse
That was totally my fault I have never fell off a horse before in my life but I shouldn't have been riding because I just came out of a cast for surgery on a tendon on my left ankle...I was loping w/my feet out of the stirrups/ and a jump did me in....Was not the horses fault it was mine..

Did you rescue them? That's great they are good kids.
You pick your horses out if they lick your hand?? Hey if it works!
I've never gotten to pick mine just came across my (3free) in my life and that quarter horse I bought, he was a good boy just had a choppy gait that hurt my back so I sold him to a neighbor.
Each horse has its own personality don't it?!
If I had to pick one I think I would go by its mannerism, I want CALM now ha ha ha!!! And look I don't think I have a calm horse..Yet

So your husband should've given YOU away....not the horses....

So, where did they end up, do you know? Just wondering. People around here don't seem to care or know much about Arabians unless it can do barrels......

I sort of rescued Snipper and Patino. Owner in jail, his brother who took care of the horses ran out of money, they were in a flake of straw each a day. He was ready to take them to auction.
Beau was just for sale, owner had a bad back, couldn't ride anymore and we were looking for a quiet, tall horse for hubby(6'6").
I pick them if we click. Horse has to be interested in being with me. Nor for food or treats, just for company. No matter hoe well trained, if it doesn't click, horse is not coming.
We live with our horses, they're 10 feet from my house. I don't want a piece of equipment only, if you know what I mean

Showing
Try some petroleum jelly (vaseline) on his knees and down the cannon bone. Bugs don't like it. My horses do this when the bot flies are out. They generally bite from the knees down and leave tiny yellow eggs.

Ha ha yea but its the other way around "I'm the horse lover" lol!!!
You would think after ten grand in doc bills I would of gotten the boot~ ha ha!!!!
My gelding I had for so lonnng I don't know??? :( that's what hurts. He took them both to this persons house that does auctions...And she said they were both to good looking to go to an auction so she gave the mare to a person I know. "So I know she is okay" But the gelding I just heard that he was w/a family that had kids and he is a companion to another horse...Thats all I know. Annnnndddd its a waste for both of them because I PUT alot of time in the both of them to get them where they were..The accident was totally my fault the poor mare was shaking and scared to death when I went off and she tried not to step on me..Yea your right though arabs do get a bad rap in this area where we live. Everyone is into quarters, and paints..Some thoroughbreds...I have two Thoroughbred ranches I live next too for racing...

Good thing you got those horses! Straw has no nutrients for them..
Six six is tall, my son is 6'4 and my horse is a good size for him..

Same here mine is not a tool he's for pleasure, my soul..
Married into 1800acres we live on here..."Recently sold to cattleman" But 40 is secure we are living on and another 40 down there where I have mine staying at is secure and separate from the 1800.. So yea same property just different area of living quarters..I go down and feed mornings she does it at night..So I am kinda earning my keep for boarding there..And they love my horse so enjoy getting to see him daily there..All I need is a fence and I could have him here but not sure if we are going to stay anymore? We would love to buy somewhere in Nevada area...I don't like California anymore "laws and prices of crap"
