    She is certainly beautiful and looks to have a big personality.

    I understand about the wind, that is a pretty common thing here.

    She looks like she is enjoying her run! More details? Breed, age, training level etc? Come on man don't leave us hanging!

    Ty looks so cold! Poor cold boy!

    Thanks everyone!
    Candi is 4 1/2 at this time. She is a regisered TB and unraced. Bred by my family. She did have some training to run, but has not had much handleing in the last year and 1/2.
    So she is a greeny! At this time she is being worked by a trainer at my barn. She is worked on a lounge line 3 x a week. She goes to pasteure (weather permitting) 5 days a week. I think she is 17 hh. We tried to measure when she first arrived and she was fussing a lot.

    The plan for Candi is to get her started under saddle in the next few months. I would like for her to have a good foundation of Dressage before I consider having someone train her in jumping. I know she is athletic enough for it, but...one thing at a time. Lets get that dressage foundation going first.

    She has her moments that is for sure. SHe is a love tho...She absolutely loves her face and ears scratched. She will just melt into your hands and put her head in your chest while you scratch her face.

    At this time she and Tiny are experiencing their first winter where there is snow. Now Tiny has a great fuzzy coat, but Candi is a bit behind and later if the trainer wants to clip her I'll let her take care of it.
    Both my horses are spoiled to death! Treats carrots love and good care. I try to keep the treats to a minimum so I don't have greedy horses...lol, but Ty can be a bit greedy sometimes but not aggressive.

    I am hoping to have the saddle fitter out on Monday the 30th. If it does work out, the saddle will most likely be ready at the right time!

    This is all so exciting for me.
    Five years ago I had so many injuries I wondered if I would ever be able to ride horses and have them in my life again. So when Tiny came here this year at the end of May, althogh I was just recovering fom a March knee surgery (1 of many surgeries in the last 5-6 yrs on various injuries)...I was excited and very dedicated.
    I spent much time trying to get Ty into better shape to ride. Unfortunately his issues are too great for him to be able to do anything too athletic.
    I didn't really know I wanted to show again until the barn I am at had some shows there. That is when I decided to look for another horse. After much consideration and looking around, I decided to ask my Dad about Candi. And....now she is mine. I am the proud owner of two TB's. Both were in training, but unraced!
    I am so excited I can't stand it. When I think of how far I have come and the blessing of having Ty and Candi, well I get tears in my eys and feel very blessed.
    So while Candi is in training, and Ty is haveing some things done to help his issues, I take lessons on a horse at my barn and try to improve my own riding....
    So that is the skinny!
    Thanks for asking about Candi and Ty.
    Oh---I was surprised Tiny came out into the snow that day when I called him to the fence. My horses have 4 different blankets each so I should hope he wasn't cold...lol Ty is so fuzzy. I am going to try and make some Christmas cards using Tiny in the photo. I think after school today I will try and find a natural wreath and a santa hat. Hang the Wreath from Tiny's door and take his picture...We will see if he will tolerate the hat...lol

    I had no idea that your folks bred TB's! They are both stunning horses!

    I love Ty, there is something aboout that guy that just melts my heart...lol! Will you be keeping him even though you are unable to really ride him? Is he a homebred boy as well? Any relation? They look pretty similiar!

    Candi is just a wonderful looking horse. I can't wait to see her undersaddle! She is going to be something else! But man oh man that's a big honking horse to ride! I think anything over 15hh is pretty tall...lol! And then jump her?! I'd probably have a heart attack...way to high in the air for me! How come she didn't race? Are you going to put the basic dressage training on her?

    I'm sorry to hear about your rough patch in life but I'm super happy to hear that you have your two wonderful ponies to help you thru tough times and then you are in good spirits regardless of all the hardships!

    Hey Feh,
    Yes my Dad has been doing it since I was little. I remember he had one horse in training and then kinda spread out from there. He still has many broodmares and other horses in various age groups. He is actually down sizing at this time

    IMHO-- I really do not agree with running and training such young horses.

    For Tiny I am considering doing some therapy called Electro-Acuscope and Myoscope Therapy.
    I made a post about it in the health section, but I do not think anyone has responded.
    Surely I can post more info about it. Have you ever heard of this therapy? It is similar to a "Tens unit"??? A Tens unit is a small unit that delivers a mild electric stimulation to an injured area such as your shoulder or back. Auscope is similar.

    Your so right when you say there is something about Tiny. When I was injured it was so difficult sometimes! I was sad a lot and had a hard time connecting with other people. So when I would drive to visit my parents I would really look forward to seeing Tiny. I would go out and brush him and take him to eat grass. Sometimes all I could manage to do was turn over his big feeder and sit on it. Tiny could tell I was sad! He would come and rest his head on my shoulder and sometimes I would have myself a good ol' cry. He is a very special horse and I could never sell him.
    Candi and Tiny are not related but they both do have the same muzzle coloring.
    They may have some similar horses in their pedigree's way down the line. .

    I have always wanted a horse bigger than 16.2! I have also always wanted a warmblood. I got to looking around and I saw many I liked but I couldn't justify spending all the money at this time in my life. So I decided to chat with my Dad about Candi.
    I too cannot wait to see her under saddle. I am really hoping and praying the saddle fitter will be able to make it before her foot surgery. If not I will have to wait until February to get her fitted and then of course another 6-8 weeks for the saddle. So I hope it all works out.
    As for her buck....well it is a big one! I have tried to get a pic of it but have been unsuccesful as of yet!
    The trainer and I have discussed the option of sending Candi to a man that gets on them and works with them for a while so that they are a bit more safe. I am not opposed to it but nervous! One gal has her Irish Sport horse out with this guy at the moment so I will see how her girl is upon return.

    Well...since I am now out of school for the next 5 days...I am excited to spend more time with my ponies!!!
