CW, there are a lot of appaloosas here in the Midwest. I think you'll enjoy them. They are around 15 hands, give or take, on average. As one of the other ladies said, they have their distinct personalities just like any breed, but generally are calm, peoWe use appys a LOT at our therapeutic riding center because they are so sensible....
Foxhunter, we had a cold windy Sunday; I sympathize with you and the rainy cold day! Glad to hear that your mum had a good visit and enjoyed herself. Sounds like she ran out of cupboards to organize?
I didn't post over the weekend but sounds like your youngsters are coming along very, very nicely!
With Grace, it's sooo cool that Foxhunter was able to give you a tip to save $ on your new bridle! Does anybody besides me think it is too awesome that someone across the ocean knew just what to recommend for an equestrian discipline that is the same on both continents??? Wow! High five!
Northernstar, thanks for the kind words about my Windy. I do enjoy her. She was slow to bond with me, as she'd been with her breeder/trainer/owner for all her 11 years before coming to me, but I'm sure she trusts me (at least most of the time) now and she has so much try. She is so fun to ride!
Hunter65 and texasgal, you crack me up! As for me, I need one of those t-shirts that says, "one horse away from being the crazy horse lady!"
My creaky credentials for this thread -- Age 55, children grown at 30 and 27, no grandkids yet (but we have the pony on the 5-year grandkid plan now). Married 35 years to DH in November. Not quite as old as dirt, but definitely getting there. I graduated from college in 1977, before PCs were invented in 1979. For all the young lurkers, they now know what "old" is!
