    Well the plan is to go riding when my hubby gets home. Hoping that works out. Have to take advantage of the sun today and tomorrow because we will be back to clouds and rain after that. Ahhhhhhhhhh spring in Oregon, .

    Pardon the dirty window, we have a large standard poodle that stands as tall as a pony. Much taller than I am when he stands up. He loves to slobber the window. I wonder how many hh he is, lol.

    After I opened the door, she just stood there like well move, I am coming in, lol.

    Years back I had an Appy X that would stand on the front porch & look in like that.

    Thanks ladytrails and Alex, you're both right, we've come so far in a short amount of time...this time last year she wouldn't go in a snaffle! I am super proud of her, and her accomplishments, especially in the hunter pleasure ring. And she's such a joy. I'm a perfectionist...I'm always looking to improve instead of enjoying where we've been. Need to stop sometimes and just reflect on what we've done in just a year

    Hi Dave. LOTS of good people here and we don't need to talk HORSE ALL THE TIME.

    I've tried to post several times and have been called away .... everytime that I have tried so this is real short.

    LOTS of good sharing and photos. GRACE? You and horse look so good! Do you trail ride? LOL. Lot's of wishing you well on upcoming events.

    Had lots of rain now dry as a bone. We have one day supply of hay and no one has any.

    All the horses have been NUTS this last week. NOT just Sereno, that IS now undercontrol but Chican and mare Chira too.

    TELL ME please. Chira has not come into season for just about 5 weeks since she and Sereno did the .... you know. So we hope that she is PG.

    IF she is PG I can understand some changes in her. But in the Chican, gelding and Sereno, stallion? I would have thought that they would become calmer?

    Back later.

    Welcome, Dave.

    Sereno, I think animals can tell that there are hormone changes and anytime the ladies are hormonal the gentleman horses react, one way or another. I think things will settle down when everyone gets used to the "new normal." This might be a sign that your 3 will soon be 4!

    Thanks Lt. Kinda what I thought but this is my first time breeding horses.

    Sereno dragged me last week. Did our manners lessons and not problem.
    Cira, in a pasture across street, PUSHED open the unlatched gate, wife was getting her, and RAN down and into the open gate, I was getting Sereno, and CHARGES IN and right up to me and Sereno! Much the the surprise of both me, Sereno AND poor old donkey.... again. I had Sereno firm..... waiting to try again with horse dirt skiing.... but waved Cira off and she is racing around poor old donkeys pasture just like Sereno had done. I think that Sereno was so stunned that he had NO idea how to act.

    Cary runs in and has to protect Donkey (and me thank you very much) as I'm trying to get Sereno out and close the gate. (where have I HEARD this before?)

    OK. Under control? Chican has to go thru Cira's pasture to get home. HE goes nuts and is running... DANG WE DO HAVE SOME GOOD LOOKING HORSES .... when they are awake. He will NOT come up to us. Running, stopping, sniffing, snorting, tail up, lips curled, more running, rolling. All this from a Gelding? 3 nights in a row.

    Difficult to get his halter on so a couple of time I just said.... sc*w it, opened the gated and he was out like a shot running for home.

    Is this normal? I'm guessing yes. LOL

    Sereno I'd so love to trail ride...when we retire from showing, maybe when she's 20 or so, she'll become my trail horse. For now my trail rides consist of vacations and convincing the trail guides that I can ride so that they let me canter along the trails.

    Cannot wait to hear if your mare is PG! We'll have our very own foal watch right here in the 40's thread!
