Lady: thank you! Linden Bay is her registered name, Lindy is her barn name.

CW: thank you!

She is VERY curious, learns VERY quickly, still acts like a baby with alot of things like picking up her feet lol. I have had her at my barn for only 2 days, so we are still getting to know each other. I am horrible at picking out names, and can't seem to find one that does her justice....I've come up with:

Caprice
Aurora
Saphira
Nyx

They just don't hit the mark with her....she doesn't act flighty, she's got all 4 hooves on the ground, she spooked once and it was "OHMAHGAWD..yum grass" lmao! She' will be super elegant when she grows into herself and I get a topline and more bum muscles on her. One of the prettiest mares I have seen, (nope not being biased lmao!) I get this reaction from people: "OH WOW she's VERY pretty, what a pretty horse!"

I'll post some pics tomorrow, maybe that will help.

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

Stan - doesnt everyone catch their horse that way?? I know anytime Kes isn't interested in being caught, all I have to do it lay in waiting in the tall grass, as she gets close I climb to the top rail of the fence and launch myself off it and towards her. Works every time and I think she's starting to respect me more. ;)

Hunter - so sorry about your car! So good that CW was there to help! When doing the Dukes of Hazzard move, be sure to slide all away across the top of the hood first, way easier than walking around to the door, especially when the law is after you.

Glad to hear those in the heat are getting some of our rain, and we are getting your sun. I finally got to break out my new prescription sunglasses to drive in, and WOW why did I not get some sooner, those road signs do actually say something!
Launching your self off the fence, Has she ever side stepped (splat)

The horse won't mind what colour the halter is. Stella has Black, Blue, Red. If she accepts the halter on her then that's her colour. Now remember what I wrote about men and horses. Roslyn had the interest and a loan horse, I, not been on a horse for 50 years, turned up with Savannah tb cross clydesdale. Huge. Marc may be secretly, slowely being hooked.

Fahntasia: That is awesome about your new horse, congratulations! I want pictures..

CW....I bet Marc will end up riding too, Bill does.

With Grace: sounds like you and Kes are going to be a force come showtime..

Hunter: OUCH! Sorry about your car.

I don't have much to add....getting ready to ride in the Air show parade tonight, in the 100 degree weather. Fun Fun...LOL

Re-intro

Time for a re-introduction (and please add me to the list)

I'm 36 (37 in October) and just got back into riding this year (after a trail ride in Aruba in March). I had about a year of English lessons when I was 13, but got bored of riding around the ring and stopped. Now I'm riding western and doing trails. I just leased a horse, a 16.2h quarter horse who used to be a police horse. I ride up in Putnam Valley, NY, but live in Manhattan.

In addition to riding, I fly planes and hang gliders for fun (hence the avatar).

I work in tech and am a bit of a gadget nut, and I've been playing with riding with my gopro, and GPS trail mapping app.

I just got back from a 4-day riding vacation in upstate New York. Here's a quick video from that trip:

That looks like fun. OK so you are almost old enough to be in this group. I guess you can stay.
