That is an awesome M. D. Present! We want to hear more about this lovely horse! Size, age, training-was it a surprise? Is it a horse you had talked about? Would like to see more pictures, too, if possible.

Well, I am struggling with Patsy and even worse with Dixie...who has a hormone problem.

Bill had said he wanted me to go to a reputable breeder and find a nice horse who we know has had proper care and training. I can still rescue and rehome, but I will have a better animal for drill team.

So I have always wanted a foundation quarter horse. I love a small and muscular horse. I saw an ad for a six year old cremello foundation mare that had just had a few rides on her but was quiet.

I went up to look by myself while Bill was working. I rode her and it was a done deal. She is soft and relaxed, balanced and lovely. I paid a deposit and Bill and I went back up last night and picked her up...

Her name is Baleigh's Chic Spirit and her reg number is...2952848. She comes in at 95% foundation blood. I am over the moon. She is quiet and curious all at once. Loads and trailers like a dream. She was so calm last night I RODE her 30 minutes after getting her home. She is my dream horse. I cannot believe it still.

I have never cared for cremello that much, but have noticed in 12 years of riding drill that audiences love them! I am also thinking of the buckskin and palomino babies I can have later.

So that is the story of my new girl, she came with a name I don't care for, but she knows here she is.. Sophie...

How tall is she? Are both eyes blue? I couldn't tell. She is very different color. I don't think I have ever seen anything quite like her before. She is pretty but not sure I would like that color as a personal preference. Lol...I know who asked me, right?

Very nice.

She is 14.2 hands tall, both eyes are blue. Technically she is a perlino, a Double Dilute on a buckskin coat.

Hi guys! Haven't been on in a couple of days. Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day, I know I did.

My girls surprised me with a BBQ rib dinner - older daughter and her hubby just showed up Saturday night with the ribs and all the fixins. I didn't have to cook at all!

Also got a beautiful blown glass whirligig for my front porch - it has a solar powered light in it, so it glows in the dark. I have it hung up in my living room window. I can't wait to hang it up outside and see the glow after the sun charges the battery.

My biggest surprise was a new saddle! It actually fits Dancer - she proved that when we were trying it on her and the step grandson decided it would be funny to run up and throw a rock at her. She jumped sideways, but the saddle stayed put! (Step grandson couldn't sit down for a while afterward.) The seat is actually big enough for my fat backside, so I am really excited to start riding.

Daughters took pix of it, but they haven't sent them to me, yet. I'll post them once I get them.
