    When I get back from my trips, after the middle of next month, I'll be doing the horse search hot & heavy-my ideal horse is small but well-proportioned, would be nice if it was gaited, I really like mares, & while I like odd-colored horses, bays can be beautiful, as can any other solid colored horse. I want the temperament, the beauty in my eyes will build as we become a team. I want to be able to ride out alone w/no backtalk, but good w/a group, also. I've had Arabs & part-arabs, love Morabs, & lots of others (LOL) & would like a horse between 600 & 900 pounds. I'm little & don't feel the need to feed a larger horse than what I need for a short daily ride. The ability to be barefoot is a must. If push comes to shove I would rather have a second horse than have to shoe one. Youngest age I would consider-5-,oldest-maybe 20. I would like to be able to go pick-up the horse myself so within 400 miles of Kingman, AZ would be ideal. Further away-would really have to be exceptional. Anybody know my perfect horse (pony)? Papers are not necessary.

    It's nice to read all your posts but it takes some time. English is not my first language. Since I stopped travel for business, I speak it regularly only to my mares (two full sisters coming from Oklahoma) and they never try to correct me. This morning I had a wonderful ride, no words needed beside a woah when done.
    It's a pity that nobody is on fb, I refused to use it for years but now I'm there sometimes.
    Cacowgirl, I wish you to find your dream horse.
    Have a nice week-end.

    'OLD' IS WHEN...
    'Getting lucky' means you find your car in the parking lot..

    Well it looks like I got forgiven before the event so that lemon is going to be consumed with a couple of dozen bluff oysters, a rare steak, side salad and cheese cake. We all know what oysters are good for and only one is required, the rest are just in case.

    Time is short at the moment long hours so I can go to a two day cattle drive on thursday and friday this week plus covering for other staff over the weekend.

    I will catch up with all. Stella is sold but still at our place She has developed dry skin in the creases of her front legs in the chest area. Probably dermatitis. Oh well, if the buyer gets upset when she comes to pick her up i'll give her her money back. But I'm going to try free and lovely shampoo see if that works. Bugs is still healing well from the ticks and has energy to burn.

    Cheers all and safe riding

    Cacowgirl- many of us here probably have or know of horses for sale. This is one I have for sale right now. I don't think he's probably your "perfect" horse but here's a link to a video of him moving around in our outdoor arena.

    Paso Fino
    Started but could use more saddle time
    Easy going, quick learner
    Can be a little tricky to catch, prefers to be haltered from the side.
    Has never been shod

    I'm in Missouri. If your at all interested just PM me and I'll give you more details.

    Hello all. I am 42 and I have had horses for 11 years now. Whem I was little, I would watch westerns with my grandmother. Oh how she loved John Wayne. Lol I would cry when the horses got hurt and laugh when the cowboys did. My imaginary friend was Trigger. Lol My uncle had draft horses and his kids had a couple ponies. I rode the palomino pony only a couple times. Friends of the family had horses and I would ride their pony. I would walk it down the hill with binder twine as reins, jump on bare back and it would haul butt back to the barn. Lol it was barn sour. In my mid twenties I was driving down a back rode and saw a black and white paint. I almost wrecked the car trying to stop to get a better look for I had never seen one before. I was in total awe. I swore that one day I would have one. In my early 30's I worked with a woman that had a black and white paint foal. I went to look at her and fell in love right away. Her name is Apache and she is 12 years old now and still with me. Her and I have trail ridden, run barrels, pole bended, done parades...etc. she is wonderful! I have had a couple other horses and now I have two nurse mare foals. They are beautiful yearlings. One is a chestnut walker and the other spotted saddlebred. I love all three of them dearly. Thank you for reading.

    Hi paint & welcome to the thread. I've had 1 paint mare in my life-pretty but could be stubborn.

    FC-nice little gelding-I really like his conformation, but he looks young, & maybe a bit feisty, & MS is quite a ways. Looked at that mare, also, but knowing the terrain around here, I don't think that would work. I had a Paso Fino mare here for awhile, and since I ride w/a QH , she nearly lost her gait after a few months. Don't know if it was the QH, or the terrain, or what, but she started just stopping on the way home-she was in her 20's,so I didn't push her, looking for a bit younger horse now, but it needs to be well-broke. I do have about 3 picked out , but I need to get these trips out of the way first. And I will be getting my favorite riding boots re-soled & re-heeled & the saddle I just bought re-fleeced while on the trip to CA, so I will be able to hit the ground running when I get back. I don't think it will take long to get my corral filled-LOL! As much as I like gaited horses, especially Peruvians & Paso Finos, the terrain I have to ride in would not be the best for them.

    QH's & Mustangs do great here & Arabs & Morgans & those crosses. And I want a pony sized horse. No barrels, no showing, no cow work~ but can't be afraid of cows-open range here & easy-loading, saddling, mounting. All the normal stuff tht we all hope for-haha. My sister is already wishing my visit was longer, and we have booked a lot to do on the CA trip also-hope we can get it all done.

    The party last night was a blast-the cheesecake didn't last very long-it has been requested again.

    What's the game with the carrots? I could not find any info about the rules and purposes of "having" carrots. :( Is there an explaining post I could read?

    The game is simple just catch as many as you can, then some crim riding a horse will steal them from you. You, from time to time are given the oppertunity to steal from other forum members. I would never do that to my friend. I always tell the truth though some may think I am stretching the truth.
