Is that leaving the horse at their barn or bringing to your house?

He knows when you are happy. He knows when you are proud. He also knows when you have a carrot.

OK, guess I have to play catch up or never sleep!

Susan: what kind of gaited horse do you ride? I just got into gaited this year. It's a lot harder than I thought and nobody down here knows anything about them. I had to take him to somebody over the summer just to learn to ride!

Outnabout: Thank you for the compliment. It's not the best picture of me, but these days we take more of our kids.

Hunter: We have a mini donkey we eats as much as any horse. Who said smaller means less food! (and less poop! HA)

CW: Good luck with leasing. I thought about leasing but would find it too hard to give the horse back when the time came. Standardbreds are supposed to be really good with kids.

It was almost 80 here yesterday. We are breaking all sorts of long standing records. I'll take it, but still worries me what July and August will bring. I hope we get some rain, I reseeded the pasture yesterday!

Hoping my horse friends will keep their fingers crossed for me today. In an hour I leave to go pony-shopping about 3 hours away. He is everything I need, just hope that there is the chemistry that I want. He's a little bay quarter-pony, 12 hands, 16 years old, goes western and english, and has already raised 2 families of kids. Sound, sane, and healthy. No vices except that he plays games to be caught sometimes. He needs a new job. We've been looking for a pony for our great-nieces and -nephews to ride when they come visiting, since we have had to recently retire our 31 year old baby-sitter horse due to arthritis (she's earned her rest, don't you think?) Grandkids on the way in about 3-5 years...time to get the pony problem solved! My husband was up at 6 this morning to do his projects so that he could go with me. We're skipping church to be able to get there and back and still have a little daylight left to 'bond' with the little guy before dark. I'm trying not to get too excited but I think the fact that we're hauling the trailer is a clue.

Ladytrails: good luck! It took me over a year to find my Jesse and I wish I would have taken a little longer. I have heard it can take years to get that special horse/pony. I hope that it works out for you! WOW 31?! I think she's due to retire. 16 is a great age for a kid's pony.

My other old horse is 33..... I have Miss Ellie's son, Dallas, who's about 6 now. I figure when the new pony is ready to retire and the grandkids are a little bigger, Dallas will be the new grandkid pony. He's about 14-2 and really a people horse, so size wise and attitude wise, he has what it takes. He is on the 10-year plan to be a kid pony when he's 16. But he is not quite there yet, and our gaited horses are too much engine. For little kids.

My gaited horse too has too much get up and go, although he's the biggest teddy bear when they are around, so gentle. They can run up to him arms flappig and screaming, he doesn't bat an eye. If anybody else did that....... I think when they get older, they are 2 and 4, I will get a good ol' quarter horse.
