Well..I figure I can take some pictures of the horses and post them for everyone to ogle at.(:
I'm going to Meredith Manor, and I get the stall(s) I'm assigned to changed every few weeks..I'm on my third stall now (Elvis, Mo, and now Petoo) and this mare is AMAZING.
I'll get a picture or two of the others, Elvis and Mo at some point..lol. Elvis
Elvis is a dapple grey Arabian gelding, and he's the sweetest thing ever. I caught him laying down before feed one day and sat with him for a bit until the food actually started coming and he wanted to get up, haha. I've never liked greys, nor Arabs, but he's definitely the one exception.(:
Picture coming soon! Mo
Mo is a bay mustang gelding (freeze-brand and all!) that's rather..old, lol. I'd say he's in his mid-late twenties and he's pretty stoic..He just chills in the back of his stall..so I never really liked him, haha.
Picture coming soon! Juanita
This is an absolutely beautiful (even if faulty in conformation, haha) mare. She doesn't exactly look like my mare, but they're personalities are SPOT ON! This is the first horse that I rode for my lessons/classes, and she's so push button. All her cues are instilled great and she listens the second you tell her to change gait, turn, or stop.
Picture coming soon! Panzer
Panzer use to be a mounted police horse..He's rather large and just plods along..He's not one for going fast, so I had to work on speeding him up the WHOLE time just to keep pace with the rest of the horses. Although he was slow, his trot was HUGE, and very lengthy..which, given his height, I should've known, haha.
Picture coming soon! Clyde aka the Moldy Pickle
I rode this old (and I mean OLD) guy for my evaluations.(: I was told he was a complete pain in the ass and didn't listen to rein at all, but he was definitely made out to be much worse than he was. While I thought I was going to break him in half, he's extremely adorable and I couldn't help but LOVE his giant, furry ears. I won't lie about being focused on his ears half the time instead of what we were doing, haha. This old guy is still going strong around 40 years old :p
Picture coming soon! Petoo
She's an absolutely beautiful, sorrel, QH mare. She looks similar to my mare (same colour) and she's extremely lovey. She has itchy spots ALL OVER her body and she always turns her head to "groom" you back (aka, rubbing her top lip back and forth on your hand or forearm). I took a few pictures this afternoon when I got assigned her stall..but this is my favourite.(:
So..I'll be updating with all the horses I'm assigned to, and I'll also get a few of those that I rode before I switched to just farrier too.(:
I'm really excited that my camera came back from the dead..I'll be able to get great pictures of some great (albeit insane) horses now!
