Weekend Pics

I went with my friends family up to Sylacauga over the weekend to visit some friends... and I managed to snag a few pictures of their horses!

They own a huge Percheron stallion named Ike who’s over 17 hands tall and is only four years old. I was told that he’ll be gelded next year. He’s a big baby...


Their mares are Bella and Rose. Bella is the grey... she’s in foal to Ike. I’m not sure what breed she is, but she’s about 15 hands tall. Not sure of her age either. Rose is the Gypsy Vanner/x/Tennessee Walker cross. I’m not sure of her age either, but she’s not that tall. I think she’s supposed to be bred to Ike... but I’m not sure.



They also have two other geldings... Monster (don’t have any pics, sorry) is a little older, a Thoroughbred... I think they said fifteen or twenty years... he was given to them, and he’s kinda thin and has arthritis really bad. He’s a really dark bay. Jordan is the red dun. He was just brought home yesterday from Arkansas. He’s about sixteen hands and is a Halter horse (Quarterhorse). I’m not sure of his age, though.



We also went to a rodeo type event and my friend Brandi and I took turns riding (walking, trotting, and cantering) her Thoroughbred gelding Moses up and down the dirt road that ran alongside where the rodeo was being held. (Brandi’s the one wearing the blue long-sleeved shirt with the blonde hair... I’m the one wearing the jean jacket and black baseball cap... sorry that the pics are very blurry... they were taken from a video...) Moses is about 16.1 hands... Brandi is about 5”8, I’m about 5”7... Also, just so ya know... Moses is not black. He’s a dark bay... in the Autumn/Winter he looks black.





Hope you like the pics!

Thanks... the pics aren't the best considering the horses were messy and it was pretty overcast, but I like them.

I like the dappled mare :)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Lol... Yeah, she's really pretty... but right now she's very mean to the other horses... her owner said that she's a devil when pregnant...

She got after one of the other horses when we were there and ran him the whole length of their pasture and pinned him in a corner... the poor gelding had to jump a huge water trough just to get away from her and she still was after him....

Oooo! You see that innocent look in their eyes and think they can never do wrong, but you always get proved wrong :roll:
