Like poodles there anti-alergic.. some thing like that. People with alergies can be around them. Plus..trivia knowlege.the first picture of a curly horse was setting bull in late 1800.. I figured if people buy poodles..then why wouldnt they buy a poodle horse??? On my way to independently poorer then I already am..lol..ride safe everyone.

    Very nice picture love the curly horses

    Prairie. There is nothing like feeling the power..the sheer strength of some horses. And thank you. Only my little lady is missing from the picture. She is a good looking quarter horse too. After 30 years of twh. I decided to go back to quarter horses in the last few years. I always had a few around training them for some clients but if you have one gaited horse you need all gaited horses.
    I always wanted to hike around nyc to corgi. Decided I would get mugged. By a bridge and get lost. Once I drove my pickumup truck from montana to where I could see nyc with the intent to drive through it. But chickened out. Looked huge.figured if I drove in there I would be a little old man before I found my way back out. Wildernesses are so much easier to get around in. Hope everyone had a great weekend and going to have a great week.. I think my horses like me only feeding them..lol.. the tend to not like it when I start grabbing saddles and bridles. Oh yeah and yes they do shed off to pretty straight hair prairie. They actually have haired up alot more. They have this look of a ball of yarn right now.ill try to get a pic. There a pain to curry out the only way I found is wax on wax off . What a pain. I wasnt that big a fan of the movie yet for me to do wax on wax off daily...lol. Ride safe everyone..happy trails.

    Hi all!

    Mondays seem to be the day I am most horse sick...since I ride on Wed and Thurs each week, by Monday I am missing my horse so much it's all I can think about. Along with all this rain and gloomy weather, I'm going stir crazy.

    Fahntasia - love the Sassy stories. Sounds like we are quite similar, my trainer keeps telling me to get tough on Kes, that she knows I'm easy on her so she tries to be bossy. She does, and I know it, I let her get away with things for too long, and now I have to show her I mean what I ask. Would love to see Sassy doing her Piaffe!!

    Stan - interested to hear how things went with Bugs at the ocean. And we need some pics of him!

    CW- Cheating on us with a dog forum, eh? What kind of dog are you getting, so excited for you!

    Mont - LOVE the Curlies!! What are you planning to do with them?

    So far grace all I seem to do is brush brush brush...lol..but I wanted to try out the alergic free horses. Figure there has to be many young people that don't ride cause of alergies. Had a good summer on them. One trivia thingabout curlies is they have super strong hard hoofs. Its natural for them. I took that with a grain of salt.and thought not in my country..where I ride.. with my nose a little high ..and guess what..there hoofs are super tough..and hard. Did all the miles of training this summer barefooted. Into the mountains..i used them as pack horses for my fall hunting trip..rocks.. mountains.. tough going.and they were fine..by the end of hunting season one of them got a little foot sore in the hind end. I went through three settings on the rest of my horses and with the price of shoes and nails.. I was impressed..saving my back ..priceless..lol. Check them out on the web..its very interesting.. might help on those long days whenyou can't ride and havent seen your horse... hope you have a great holiday season grace. And hope everyone on the forum does too.. ride safe..happy trails

    Oh mont, I've lived in NYC for 35 years. I'm sure you could get around just fine if you really wanted to. Me, I'd choose wilderness now (but I'd need help). There are hardly any horses here and absolutely no wide open spaces.

    CW, I love dogs and I think rescue dogs are the best of all. Every one that has come through my door has turned out to be a good companion and grateful buddy. Our current dog was a big challenge at first but he's paid us back 1,000 times over.

    I've got a cold/virus thing today so I didn't work and I cancelled my riding lesson. Lessons have been going well so that's a shame. Last weekend my instructor commented about my canter - "that's a good 1st or 2nd level canter" and made me very proud. I haven't even competed training level yet.

    I've gotten over a hump. It's a mix of confidence, skill, balance and just letting things fall into place. I do it by stepping back when I'm feeling bad, doing things that I feel confident with and just sort of approaching from a different angle. And never ever giving up, just regrouping. Being over that hump is tremendous.

    I just pulled a border collie out of the shelter. A high kill shelter. She is almost perfect. I am fostering her till she finds her perfect home.
