    All the 'beautiful' talk got me thinking....if you had to "define" you horse(s)in one or two words...what would it be? Anyone in?

    I'll start with my Skye...she is definitely a PRIMA DONA. She hates the cold, the mud, wind, snow, rain......yet she tortures herself and stands right under the gutter....ugh! Not real smart! She would much rather spend her days indoors and be pampered. She loves to be brushed. She'll stand there forever with her eyes closed as you brush away.

    Now, Rainn, I would call her a CHOW HOUND! She LOVES to eat!!!!😍😍😍😍 she digs through her hay for the best pieces, tosses it in the air, and buries her head in it. When she comes up for breath....her whole head is covered in hay springs.😂😛😳. Too funny!


    Ok your turn....define your horses!
    Hunter does that with his hay too but his favorite is making Hay soup. He will drag his hay to where ever his water is and make his hay soup. At least I know he is getting lots of water

    61 here. Am I too old and crabby to join in at times?

    Two words to describe Sereno?

    Challenging buddy.

    (had to run back to check that I used two b's instead of p's.)

    I am glad everyone is able to appreciate "true beauty" when you see it in a horse. LOL

    Welcome to PB and Sereno! You will find this thread to be the most entertaining, helpful, compassionate, and welcoming thread on the forum.

    Now, for two words that describe my girl. Most of the time I am asking her why she has to be such a witch. (Only I use a different word). She is mean to every other horse and pins her ears at every little thing and person, except me. I believe most of her attitude comes from the fact that she was a polo pony for her whole life and was passed from person to person and farm to farm. I truly believe I am the first person she has let her guard down with. She has never kicked, bitten, bicked or reared but you can tell she WANTS to at times but is too well trained to ever actually do it. She is wonderful for the farrier and vet but I know she is cursing them out inside her mind.So, I am really having trouble coming up with two words.

    I will go with RESERVED and HEADSTRONG.

    Hubby's horse is easier. Scuffy can be summed up in two words: SENSITIVE and GOOFY!

    Too old at 61, hell I was only just getting going at that age. Now I spend a considerable amount of time slowing down so the youngsters can catch up.

    And I'll take this oppertunity to ask. Why is it I'm the only one who has described there horse for what she really is. A Tart. I could say she has a mystery about her. Her long flowing main which has a golden colour in contrast to the rest of her, the forlock covers her eyes in a manner when she looks through it with ears forward it melts ones resolve. Her tail almost touches the ground. She can be left for months and when taken out for a ride settles within minutes, and on ocasion comes when she is called. When out riding she will respond to some voice commands. She is herd bound and will boss other horses if she can get away with it. Then when it is all done she will turn her back to me. And my resolve returns. Now you know why I am having so much trouble selling her, the Tart. No offense intended to those who like me think a lot of their horses.

    Sereno you have just been hijacked.

If any of you have ever watched "Bill Cosby Himself" comedy then she would be the kid who gets caught with a cookie and when asked what she's doing she would say she's bringing you a cookie. When you say you didn't want a cookie she says "Well can I have it?" lol

    I did , I did do that...lol


    I know you have politicians and toddlers over there in kiwiland...haha

    I think "Little devil" is very fitting for Hunter. Or I could call him "The Plotter" as we all figure he sits in his stall at night plotting evil revenge

    See his horns?

    Kiwi?

    Hey Stan!

    Kiwi?? I once had a leg of lamb from New Zealand that a guy from your way prepped and roasted for us. His nick-name was Kiwi. Never had lamb that good since. In fact, we had dinner last night with another well traveled couple and got to talking about food. That leg of lamb was mentioned. LOL.

    My talk to my buddy about someday flying to New Zealand and riding around what looks like a very interesting Country on many levels.

    My buddy is a little large so the airlines want to charge A LOT more and we can not find his birth certificate for a Passport.

    Dang you Sereno! You ARE a Challenging buddy!

    Perhaps it's time for me to take a long walk in my back yard. Sereno HATES the ocean.

    WOW!! Just found this thread and thought great, people my age (I am 45) and then saw that the thread consisted of 817 pages oh! My goodness what a lot of reading to do. So I thought I would start at the end and get involved with 2 words that describe my horse.

    My horse would definitely be described as LOYAL and SENSITIVE...

    Hi all!

    Had two lessons this week, went well except that Kes is in heat and was stubborn. We've got our Training Level Tests 1 and 2 down, and am feeling pretty good about them. Got to memorize test 3 tonight, as we have a lesson again tomorrow. Can't believe we leave for the show in 11 days! Have my show bridles all cleaned and ready to move bits over to them, need to clean my saddles and boots soon too. Brought my dressage show coat and my hunt coats in for tailoring today...am finally almost ready!

    Also got confirmation from the hubs and trainer that we are going to Regionals in June!! Can hardly contain my excitement!
