Playing in the paddock
And learning to lunge now
Next up is Cinder, she's an 18 year old heinz 57! I was told she was a TB/Appy but I'm convinced there is arab somewhere in her bloodlines...she's a very high spirited mare with some soundness issues. Well, not soundness, she's never been lame...but her hip is partially fused to her spine so my western saddle just wasn't comfortable. Under directions from my vet I've started her on a small dose of bute to see if there's any change. I've also upgraded to an all purpose english saddle that doesn't sit on her "tickle spot" so I'm working on my velcrow butt since THIS is her most famous move...
Since starting the bute she's come a LONG way though! Still has her fire, but not so irritated as she always was.
Last for this post is Justus. She's a 4 year old Appy/Mustang X Welsh Pony mare that I gifted to a kid that was coming out to ride for the last year. She's an awesome kid, loves horses, and I'm just too tall for Justus. She's 14.2hh and I'm 5'9 so my leg cues were being mistaken for bugs on her belly...

I'll post in this thread again to do the rest of the horses since you can only add so many pics...I'm a bit of a picture freak! LOL!
