    This is Icarus. He is a QHx Belgian, and in my opinion is the most beautiful horse ever. I have a very limited history for him but I know he was a trail horse for a while and it is easy to tell he had no previous formal training. He is super, super sweet and would never endanger anyone out of his own will but he is a huge wimp and can be scared by everything and anything. I don't have any real plans for him, I am just trying to work on his basic training and balance right now.
    Wow lovely, he looks like a big haflinger.

    Here are two of mine, Woody the grey pony and Hattie my haflinger

    And the gang with my TB

    Just one for me, this is Isabel, a 19-year old Morgan mare.

    She came from a nice breeding farm but didn't make the cut to stick around for their show or breeding string. From there, she lived most of her life with a family who had 8 kids and a couple of mini donks. Eventually the kids lost interest, so she was donated to a therapeutic riding program.

    She still likes kids, but hated the monotony of lead line lessons- she still had too much spunk for that and was too quick for unbalanced riders. Once it was clear she wasn't going to make it as a therapy horse, I started leasing her from the program- they decided they didn't want to keep her if she wasn't going to be useful to the program, so I bought her about a year and a half ago.

    Now we just putter around. She's my first horse and has been great in that role.

    Time to add some color to this thread!

    Stryder (Rolling River Blue) my loud, but gangly yearling gelding. He thinks he's hot stuff in the pasture, and might be spending a few days with a couple bossy mares to calm him down in the near future.


    Sammy (Shockability) my 3 year old (recently gelded) fewspot.

    The brown above is Pickle-pony, the lead in that herd (And Stryder's protector.)

    My two, Annie the mostly red mare. She's my diva and my queen. She knows what I need when I need it, and though she has her mare days, she's the best partner I've ever had. Jumps, cows, trails, hunting, she's braver than a pissed off hog and smarter than a tack.

    And toby, the mostly white gelding. He's a recent rescue, I've only had him about three months. When I first started working with him nearly a year ago, he reared, bucked, bit, hated people. Between myself and a young teen, dispite his previous owner, he began to trust again. She decided to sell him, and I scooped him up no questions asked. He's a willing, if not confident partner, and enjoys being around people. Always the first to meet you in the pasture, hasnt reared in five months and is always in a good mood.

    Thank you. I owe it to my grandpa for buying the last son of Poco Dell long before I came into the picture. They've bred true that's for sure. Love my old school bulldogs
