I'm usually just a lurker and reader. I enjoy looking at everyones photos and reading the threads in Horse Breeds, the Photos, and the Riding. So, I thought I'd share my new horse. I've been trying to get my friend to take some photos, she's got this high powered digital camera, but we have just been unable to meet. So I finally took some myself with my old poor quality really slow digital camera and by myself on top of it. It's quite hard to take the photo and shake the grain can at the same time.
Here's a little about Dandy. I purchased Dandy, (Dandy's Lil Jewel Dandys Lil Jewel Quarter Horse ) in February. She had previously been shown in the Western classes and had some beginnings of reining training. Dandy is a just turned 7yr. Old appendix quarterhorse, 16.2Hs. She's a real sweety, loves to be loved on. Starting in the fall/early winter of this year, I'm going to start working on her doing English and Hunter/Jumper. I'm not ready to get in the English saddle on her, yet. She has a particular avoidance technic that can be a little disturbing. When she gets mad or frustrated she likes to rear straight up in the air (no curve in her back bone) about 3 times in a row and if that doesn't get her point across, she goes for crow hopping. That's why she was reasonably priced.
