    Hi all, I see those wonderful picture you post and wanted to share one of mine. In the last years I was no more interested in pictures so I just have a few left from about 3-4 years ago. The attached picture is in fact on a horse I do not own anymore. I refuse to calculate how many years have gone since then...

    Click the Go Advanced button on the bottom of the reply box next to Post Quick Reply.

    Look for the paper clip next to the smiley face at top center of the box and click on it. That will open a window where you can download the picture(s).

    Click on Choose File Then go to where the pic is. Double click on the pic you want. You'll be back at the Option window then click on Upload to the right. Do this until you have uploaded all the pics you want then just close out the window.

    Go back to the paperclip at the top of the reply box and you will find all the photo links you just uploaded. You can either click on each one separately to install them between messages or click the option at the bottom to post all at same time. Hope this helps.

    Yissy, you seem to have the perfect horse. Have you considered walking your horse on the trails you plan to ride? I do that sometimes and horses love it. Great bonding activity. But... I'm tiny and can't imagine walking a Clyde...



    I'm really lucky with Shiloh. She had some great training before I bought her. I just get to reap the benefits!

    I never thought of walking with her on the trail. I've taken her for walks before, but never by myself. Normally my daughter had her horse with her, but it would be nice to do with her.

    Sybil, wow! Great photo!!! Beautiful!! Is that the horse that went to congress? Do you still show? Did you live in the US then?

    Yissy, I love taking the horses for walks. I especially like to take them to areas I am not sure how they would react. For example, when I brought both of them home, I wanted to make sure they would be Amish buggy safe....so I stood by the road when they went by. Then I walked the road and saw how they would react as we walked past them, and other scary things. Gave me a bit of piece of mind to know how they might react to traffic while on the ground.

    Ok boys......here is your first photo......

    Thanks for the advice. I have taken her for walks, but nowhere really far. I think before I take her on the trail by myself, I'll walk it with her. I know she's done that trail before, but not with just me. It would be good to see how she is without the other horses as well. I've always ridden her with a group of three or more. Just want to wait until the corn is cut down.

    Went to see Shiloh today and all of the horses were being brought in. There is a lady at the farm that I often let ride Shiloh. She takes her on amazing trail rides and canters her and exposes her to things I'm not ready to yet. I like her to ride Shiloh a couple times a week. She's awesome. Anyway they were doing a drill with another Clydesdale, two ponies and two QH. After the drill they all raced around the sand ring and it was awesome!!

    I've seen horses race on TV, but never in person. One of the QH's Fancy, is 21 years old and she lapped all of the other horses about 4 times! I was in awe of, not only the speed of the horses, but of the riding ability. The ponies raced and kept up and they were ridden by 12 year old twins!! Shiloh and the other Clydesdale didn't have quite the room to really stretch out and race well, but it was awesome to see my horse do something that I can't do with her.

    I had an awesome time!
