That photo is stunning, countryryder! And how I wish I had access to trails - I only have paddocks to ride in, they're good for jumping but I don't jump and I really want to go for a good gallop on Star before she's sold. I swear she'd be a great endurance horse - she's got so much go and will be still keen to gallop after hours of work (and it's not like we've even done proper conditioning work). Asking Brock to gallop would be a bit futile

I'm riding Brock later today and my friend will be taking lots of photos and a video or two so I will share them when I get back!

Took some ponies to the big indoor arena today. Thought I'd share some pics (seems like you guys like pics? Haha)
I LOVE my (err.... my husband's) truck, such a beast

That baby is Ransom, and the older pally behind him is Ryder (full brothers)
Chexx (Mama to both Ransom and Ryder)

Velvet (Miss Velveta)

None of these guys are mine, I don't have any horses right now, but the owner lets me use them to teach basic horsemanship lessons (she makes half the lesson fee) and lets me ride as much as I want. I know, I'm super lucky!! Yeeee

I love Chexx's colour, that red chestnut with copper tones in sunlight. My first horse was like that, they'll always have a special place in my heart even if none of my horses since have been that colour!

Seems like I say that I love just about every colour, lol! Is there any colour you guys can't stand? I used to dislike paints, because it seemed like that's what everyone wanted and I think I just wanted to be different, but they've grown on me. Still not a big fan of cremello (sorry Cowgirl, I know your girl's foal was a cremello) just because of those eyes and I'd always be worried about sunburn.

Ugh, half the mares were in season and Brock was a pain in the butt, had to work so hard to keep his focus on me. So the ride was pretty short and I didn't manage to get any photos or video taken of us because my friend was still riding Star.

BUT, we got some awesome photos of Star - she did her first straight 40cm jump today and went over like a pro. She was totally nuts when we got her down from the paddock though, pawing and rearing and spinning around, but we put her back in and had her gallop out the crazies before saddling her up. All the horses were nuts really - the colts were all rearing and racing each other, the mares were peeing everywhere...

Here are the Star photos - note, she's a teeny tiny 6yo TB who was never trained to race, and she only just started her proper jump training about 3 months ago (she also knows reinback too now, and walks on a loose rein finally):

Nope, no jig-jog, no pulling, just meandering along quietly like a good girl:


Showing her true TB nature at the canter:


Happily flying over 40cm:


Relaxing after a hard afternoon's work:


Isn't she just adorable?

Brocky on the other hand was the evil horse of doom through and through today. Argh!

A crazy girl with a crazy horse

Yeah! I love her color too. She gets biotin and it has really made her shiny!!

So,I am trying to decide if I am crazy to even be thinking this,but it keeps rolling around in my head.. Purchasing another weanling. It first popped into my head when I was thinking about what or who to use for a companion for Missy when she comes home as I would prefer to keep boarding the two mares at the neighbors for a few more months,for various reasons.Then,I started thinking about how much I love working with the babies and how I have missed it since quitting work at the breeding place. Which got me looking on different sites and all the really nice,registered weanlings needing new homes..And out the window at the extra hay a friend gave me when he moved..And at my horsey fund which has recovered pretty good after the disaster with Quoya.. So yea..lol

How do you all like this little filly?

SS.LV Lopkop

I fell in love with her when I saw her. I can't afford a second horse right now, but, if I could, I'd really consider her.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

She looks lovely! Has a mischievous look about her.

She is just 10 months old and the asking price is just about $500. I'm not a big fan of mares, but this little girl seems a match for me in a way. Well, I hope she gets a good owner. :)
