Hey all *waves* don't know if I've ever posted here, so I figured I'd say "Hi". My name is Leenie and I'm from Northern California, I'm a senior in college and I'll be graduating in a month. I've been riding for eight years and had my own horse, a black QH named Gambit, for two of them. Unfortunately he passed away in February. I'm not ready for another horse yet, but I fully plan to get another one in the future. I've been taking eventing lessons for the past few weeks and am loving it! So that's it, hope all is well with you guys!

Haven't posted here for a long time! Whoops!

Hello Leenie! Welcome to this thread! Sorry to here about your gelding. Hugs!

I went home over Easter weekend. My Ruby arrived while I was home. That worked out beautifully! She is pretty trusting right off the bat. Followed me out of the trailer (she walked off, instead of jumping off), down through the yard, out through the horse pasture (with 4 horses running around), and then into the smaller pen. All of this at 1:00 am, and she's not ever really be 'halter broke' yet. Just had a halter on her while in the corrals at the rescue, and a little bit of rubbing down from the people there. She loves people so much! I am really happy about that!
The only thing is that she is tiny! Like 14 hands tiny and really narrow as well. That possibility of her being half Morgan might be true after all. Not sure what I will do with her. She is too small to make me a riding horse. I'll break her and get her trained, but we'll see after that.
I am trying to get my family to get an appointment set up in Kelvington to take her to the vet get her preg checked and an overall checkup (coggins, health, teeth, etc). Hopefully that'll work out soon.

Here are some pictures of her, though they aren't all the best because I let my 8 year old sister do the picture taking.

The only body shot I have. She needs more weight, for sure. It's being worked on.

Cilla and Ruby

And a couple pictures of my gelding, Coyote. He was quite the sweetheart for me!

Lovely. :) Welcome, Ruby! She looks like a golden character.

I just posted some pictures of how Snickers is doing at the new barn - starting at the bottom of page 13, and continuing in page 14: Moving to a new home

Awe Ruby looks like a sweet heart! Good luck with her!

Thanks ya'll! It'll be a while before I actually work with her, but so far so good!

I saw the pictures of your Snickers, Saranda! He looks pretty happy! I always love looking at pictures of him! He's so pretty!

So I have a lesson today, and my trainer said we'd be starting jumping either this week or next. I'm really excited about that! I'll try to get you guys some pictures.

Welcome back Draft girl and Honeysuga!
Traum is cutest looking guy! I've always had a soft spot for Gypsys and Gypsy crosses!
No pictures of my lesson cause it got too dark and my camera and my camera couldn't handle it. I did get some picture of Radar when we were tacking up, I'll upload them later!
