Just some pix of the gigantic herd.

LOL. Just wanted to share some newer pix of my herd.

Olen:
Aw. LOL


Watching over Tiny while he takes a nap


Tiny: What a regal old fellow.


Old retired guys: Flash (sorrel) and Flipper (bay)












Nester with his tubby self:


Yep, Flash is ribby. He has zero muscle mass from being out of work for years and it is harder for him to move around when he's fat. So we keep him just a bit on the ribby side to make him more comfortable.

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/

Denny (bay) and Jesse (buckskin):








And the 3 wise men (left to right; Flipper, Flash, Denny), they are the 3 oldest horses in the pasture:


Dobe (of course):




Reminding Pokey and Koda that he's the big boss and gets to drink the cool, fresh water first :






And he and Koda relaxing in the heat of the day:

I think Rosie and John could make some beautiful music together!

I still love nester...just love his guts. Something about him says 'smart' to me.

How the heck do you keep your horses so clean!

And I just love how Dobe is the boss but they arent SOOO afraid of him. Like 'yeah yeah yeah kid, we get it...your the big man...can we just get a drink?" lol

And of course, last but not least, is Rafe:




He and Jesse have made friends.


Going to grow into a big, pretty boy.


Just a pic of his wonky leg markings. I never guessed that his breeding would produce such jagged edges.










Of course, he follows me around when I'm taking pix and he knows LOL.




He and his best friend, John:






Whew, anyway, I think that's it for my herd LOL.

Cori, I am just blessed with neat horses. The most grooming I have done in weeks on horses I'm not riding is scratching on them with my hands LOL. It's just been really dry so no mud to roll in.

As for Nester: Smart? Questionable sometimes. Mellow and trustworthy? You betcha.

I'm sure you will. Ours didn't start out this big. We used to only have 3 or 4 horses that were actually ours and then just continued to accumulate and not sell anything for years. This collection was started in about 1988 LOL.

That's the year I was born!
I've been on a little property hunt, mostly just drool worthy and wishful thinking but someday!
