    My Horses

    Here is Jazz, my 17yo Arabian gelding. He's a polish arab, which gives him a bit more athletic and powerful build, and is a little larger than a typical Arab. I tend to prefer his look to the classic Arab.







    Mattie, the 1/2 Arab 1/2 Saddlebred mare. She was top 10 in halter at both US and Canadian nationals as a young horse. I just lost her two weeks ago to an accident in which she became entangled in a fence. She's actually the reason I joined this great community, though. I wanted to get more info on whether or not the fencing was safe. She was 22.

    He's about 15 3" - 16

    He's a pretty big guy, unusually so for an Arab. I like the more athletic kind of build though. Only seen a couple of other Arabs his size. I love my boy! The only thing is that he's a little steeper climb than most Arabs - now that I'm "old" (22) and out of shape, getting on him can be a bit of a shock! Came much easier at 12 when I was riding several times a day and my bones were more flexible!

    I'm sad about Mattie the black mare. These things just happen when keeping horses, though. The worst part right now is that though I was close to her, she was my sister's horse. My sister has been in Russia for the past three weeks and we want to tell her in person, so she doesn't know yet. She gets home tomorrow night. :(

    If you're looking for a taller arab focus on the polish arabs. I know a breeder of polish arabs if you're looking for a baby. Not where I got Jazz, but I've known a lot of her horses and they're nice. PM me if you want details on where to get a good arab. I might be able to point you in the right direction.

    I'm sorry about your puppy dog. We lost my golden a few summers ago, and now have another one that is getting older. Sadly, she also belongs to my sister. :(

    Thoroughbreds are a handful for sure!

    That is so true. Thouroughbreds are a handful. The one I ride and take care of(hes really more of my horse than the owner/my trainer), he is really high spirited, if you read my story about him it says how firey he was/is when I want him to:) I feel kindof sad for my baby Red, because flies target him so much more than the quarter horses at the barn, horses just LOVE to bite him, and he's kindof a pansy when im not riding him. But I love him anyways. :) I love thoroughbreds!!! More pictures?

    Try Endure flyspray, it's great stuff. Works like a charm. It's not cheap, but it will work for a week straight, seriously. Apply liberally and brush in.

    I think I might give Jazz a bath tomorrow and have the boyfriend take some pictures of us! On second thought, bath time usually means that I get very dirty and Jazz gets clean(er), so maye I'll have him take the pictures on Saturday!
