I guess I've actually had 3 first "horses". LOL

My very first mount was a 34" tall mini-burro named Olen. He and I were both 3 years old when we started riding together. He's now 28 and still happily living in my pasture. This summer, he will be going to live with my brother for a while and he's going to be my youngest niece's first mount too. She's also about to turn 3. I jokingly told my brother when he asked about taking Olen "Only a **** donkey could survive raising 2 generations of Robertson kids" LOL.


Then, my first actual horse was my Dad's 16hh, 1500 pound outlaw roping horse named Buck. I was riding him sporadically at 4 and by the time I was 5, I was riding him all the time because my brother had gotten a new horse (who can be seen in the background there). Unfortunately, both of them are buried in our pasture now. Buck we lost in '01 and Sis (the sorrel) we lost in '09.


But, my first horse that was technically, 100% all mine and nobody else's was Denny. I trained him when I was 14 and we went a lot of miles together.


He's 18 years old now and retired out in my pasture. Just for grins and giggles the other day, I jumped on him with nothing more than an old hay string around his neck. Hadn't been on him in over a year and he still rode the same as he ever did; hot and chargey and obnoxious...but completely obedient LOL.

Here's my first ever horse! 15.2hh thoroughbred gelding named Dennis. I don't think we could have found a less beginner suitable horse if we had tried! I spent more time on my ass in the dirt then actually on his back I think, but I loved him nonetheless.

Yearling
I put two pictures, one of my first horse, Mooney the picture was taken a few months before she got sick, one of the only pictures I have of her. I have her less than two years, but she is a retrained standardbred and my prefect horse. She is the roan

The second is on my mare now in a suppose to be quarter horse, we're both strong headed and tend to clash in personality, but we work it out some how. She is the chestnut.

I love seeing all the first horses!!!

When my Taffy was PTS he was already down. It was cold and wet and when we called the rendering service, they said the truck would not get off the driveway to get the horse. So my 3 brothers and my brother in law came over to move Taffy about 75 yards closer to the driveway to be picked up.

They still refer to this event as "The Great Taffy Pull"
They are so mean!!

Need to get to my parents and grab some ole photos, those are terrible! An 80's nightmare, LOL! I don't have pictures of my first Arabian mare scanned, only had her for a year because she was accidentally bred by a neighboring TWH stud and we lost them both, it was terrible!
Then they got me Grey Sky when I was 11. She was only 18/20 months and already "green broke" , yeah great mom, so I had to train her myself.
$505 of the best money I ever spent on a horse, Quarab and indestructible! Rode THOUSANDS of miles on this horse! Here she is just after her first and only foal, miss her so badly. I lost her to a tornado when she was 18.

Foal
Here's my first horse that was actually mine I got not too long ago. No more leasing or sharing :) After hours of research for my non-horsey parents and convincing they finally decided to let me buy Arabella and as corny as it sounds be the happiest daughter in the world! I will never forget the feeling of handing over all of my hard earned 100 dollar bills and officially buying her. It has been completely worth it though!

This was my first horse, had to sell here, could not afford to have here. I should have sold my kidney so I could have kept her.

Not sure if you'd consider Dakota my first horse or not. My friend said his owners gave him to her because they couldn't handle him, then she gave him to me because she had too many horses on her feed bill and we had such a good connection. However, his owners took him back last Christmas (2010) without so much as a how do you do, so I guess he wasn't really mine. I consider him my horse, though.





My first horse that I bought and am still paying for lol, is Buenos Aires, my heart horse.





I took that last pic of me and Aires with my cell phone today. I sent it to a few friends and one of the texted back "Dear Lord! His head is HUGE!"

Oh boy! This is going to be fun! This has to be my favorite topic of all time! Lol.
This is Chance, my first horse, I got him when he was 25, now almost 29! I gave him away last summer two days after my 15th birthday! He needed a semi retirement home. I miss him so much sometimes I wish I had never given him away, but I know it was the right thing.


^^Very last picture take of us, ten minutes before he left.:(


^His new owners, though the girl just rides him.
