    Ahhh so jealous, Saranda, I've always wanted one of those! I'm still wearing my daggy Dublin Onyx (and it doesn't really fit properly either, about half a size too big!). But no point in buying a new one til I'm back riding again in any case.

    GallopingGuitarist, you're new horse Ruby is a complete cutie! Glad she found a wonderful home with you

    Ohh wooww EOD your at Melbourne already!! that's awesome :)

    We're looking for a new housemate ATM to live in the farm with me and jay, and I think I've finally found the perfect tenant!! She is our age and has a beautiful SB mare that she wants to bring over and I think it's a great idea cos ill have a riding buddy!

    But jay reckons that because we have stuff in common that we will clash :/ seriously don't know why he has to put such a damper on everything.

    Ahh so annoying! :/

    Thank you EvilHorseofDoom!

    Here is a picture of since she was brought to the rescue


    She got a bit banged up on her back legs in the trailer (there were around 20 horses in the trailer) on the way to the rescue. The gal at the rescue said that she put something on it. So far she says that my girl is very sweet and trusting. She will be dewormed at the time of her coggins and preg check (Jan 25). She looks pretty small, but she'll have time to fill out before I do any saddle work with her. The earliest I would be doing breaking is next year.
    I have to buy a halter and lead for her. Any ideas on color?

    Purple!! Or perhaps a wine-red that doesn't clash with her coat?

    Hmm, not a huge fan of purple, unless it's really dark.. I'll have to look around. Deep royal purple.. okay maybe I like the thought of that!
    Thanks!

    She is gorgeous; what a sweet face she has =] And I have to say that I agree with the purple =P I just love that purple on that coloring.

    Aww,Ruby's such a cutie!

    Spent a fair amount of time with the new kid today.It took lots of patience,but she finally allowed me to rub on her and even put a halter on. :) Still trying to settle on a name for her;I really like Daisy,but it just didn't seem to fit when I was calling her that today,I think because Daisy seems more dainty and feminine,while she is a big chunk,lol.She's younger by a couple months then the other two,but she is quite a bit taller and stockier than either of them.I think she's going to be one big framed girl,like her poppa,Drifter Paddy (pictured).




    Juno is also continuing to improve,hurray!

    I'm so happy Juno is improving for you, Countryryder! It's stressful enough owning a new horse and getting used to their personality and quirks and hoping they like you, haha.

    Thanks,me too!
    I really was wondering there for a bit what I was going to do with this crazy aggressive horse,lol,but whatever I'm doing must be working,because she's really started coming around the last few days. :)

    Thank you all for the kind words about Ruby. I tend to choose the 'plain' non color horses because those are the ones that don't get picked right away. That was the case with Ruby. But she is sounding to have an attitude to match her sweet face!

    Countryryder, I am glad that you are working things out with your new horse.
    If you are taking suggestions for your other horse 'Daisy'... What about Juniper?
