Gorgeous horses ya'll. Here are a few of the sorrels and chestnuts around my house.
This dark chestnut boy belongs to one of my customers.
And this little chestnut mare is their's as well. She's the most fantastic little horse and just the type of horse I would have for myself (though she's a bit tall for my taste) LOL.
This is my 2 year old Belgian x QH. His momma came to us pregnant when we got her for free from a friend.
And this is his momma, Bessie. She is the most sweetest horse with an amazing temperament that I'm hoping Rafe keeps when it comes time to start him under saddle.
And here she was a little while back on the wagon, with Rafe keeping up alongside.
This is my brother's horse, Zippo. He's been a ranch horse for about 4 or 5 years and is officially my Nephew Braden's horse.
And, last but not least, is our old guy Flash that we just lost earlier this summer
. He was given to us when he was 5 because he had been diagnosed with Navicular and his owner was going to put him down. After some much needed proper hoof care, he ended up sound and stayed that way until he was 23 when the combination of arthritis/navicular required that he stopped being ridden. This first picture was taken the last summer he was used.
This guy was a real liver chestnut. His name was Scotch Judge, a stud owned by my Dad. Unfortunately we lost him to colic when I was still very young and this is the only picture I have of him. He was impossible to distinguish from a black horse unless you had him out in the sun where you could see the reddish tint to his coat.
