1) How many horses would you have? Between me and my husband we already have 4. In addition to the ones I currently have, I would get my dream hafling of dark chocolate with flaxen mane, about 14.2-14.3 hands. I would also get a black canadian or percheron for my husband with no white markings since that is his dream horse. I would also adopt 2 BLM mustangs a year to gentle/train and place them in forever homes after the BLMs required year is over with. So in all it would be 6 full time horses and 2 rescues. Oh yes, and can't forget my donkey. :) So I guess that makes 9 at any given point.

2) What breed/color/size/ect? Well see above! It would be our 4 current ones - a 7 year old haflinger gelding (just under 14 hands), a 5 year old bay mustang(13.3 h), a bay BS paint(14.3 h), and a grey tobiano draft cross (15 h), a 7 year old red dappled donkey (13h) <- which are our current horses. Then a 14.2-14.3 chocolate haflinger mare or gelding, a 15.2 hand all-black canadian or percheron, and then the 2 BLM mustangs of whatever size/color.

3) What would you do with them (dressage, trail riding, breed, teach...)? Trail Riding and Competitive Trail Riding. Maybe some driving with the haflingers - I would love to learn how to do that. Gentling and basic saddle training with the mustangs.

4) Where would you keep them? (board or at home? If at home, in what sort of set-up?) At home. My dream property is a barn with an indoor arena, an outdoor arena, and many large rolling pastures with some wooded areas for trail riding. I would love 100 acres. 10 acres for the facility set-up and arenas, 50 acres of pasture/hay fields, and 40 acres for trail riding through woods. Part of the wooded area would be a nice fruit orchard (apples, peach, and cherry) and have atleast one spring and creek running through the property.


5) Anything else? *sigh* a girl can dream... More realistically I would be happy with another 5-10 acres as a small hay/winter pasture area.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

1) How many horses would you have?
2-10ish. I don't think I could handle more than ten. At least two would be mine, maybe a couple boarders, and the rest would be in training for resale.

2) What breed/color/size/ect? Nothing huge, or with a lot of pink skin(way too easy to get burned here). Other than that, I'm pretty open. They must have a cuteness factor. XD

3) What would you do with them?
Do resale projects and train them for all around english riding. Mainly dressage and trail riding along with low jumping, then take them to shows to gain experiance. Then I might have a couple boarders. And my personal horses would be at least one retired oldie and then my all around pony. ;)

4) Where would you keep them?
On my own property. Buy at least 10 acres put a house and barn there, fence the rest and voila! Now I just need to make a name for my dream home.

5) Anything else?
I'd like a nice horse trailer, too. ;) And some barn cats. Then I'd let maybe like "troubled" kids come out to get fresh air and teach them to work with horses/animals.
