I can't wait!! Anyone know where I can pick up a decent english saddle for cheap? I don't want to spend a butt load until I am positive he will stay sound.

Still

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

Yay! I bet you are just thrilled!

Try Craigs List or ebay - measure an English saddle that fits first though then ask the sellers for those measurements. I purchased my Collegiate A/P on ebay in February, its fabulous and fits perfectly (also fits a wide range of horses) I love saddle shopping!!

Seems like all is rising rosey! Wonderful pictures of horses and children and grand children - and great grand son!

We were meant to have heavy rain showers off and on all day but it has been wonderfully sunny and warm - until I went out to feed the field ones when, you guessed it - the skies opened up!

Worked the horses and turned them out, so they are caked in mud. I swear they have trowels hidden in the fields to layer it on each other.

When we went to get the mares in found that a ewe had lambed. I had them down for starting next week. As every forecast is for bad weather tonight and tomorrow, we brought them in so they are in half of the loose shed eating racehorse hay!

There are only nine to lamb which is tedious. I use to lamb 4 - 5 hundred.

As far as Appaloosas go I use to event one a full leopard spot. He was not a pretty horse but he was one of the gamest and bravest horses I have ever ridden. I don't think he ever refused - we often lacked brakes, if he locked onto a fence, that was it, we were going over it whether I wanted to or not!
He had been a circus horse and really took me by surprise when I was lungeing him one day, I had halted him and turned him in to face me I raised the whip and he went straight up! Not a nasty bone in his body and he never reared when ridden.

I have had a few Appy X and all were bold, kind and willing to please.
