I truly appreciate everyone's feedback. Personally, I think DH is crazy for even thinking about it but it's his decision. I know the market stinks but a friend of ours thinks he's got someone that's may be interested in her.

There's a girl in our barn that has riden her and is going to use her in some of her 4H events. As for the registry, it will cost me around 150 to register her APHA as both her parents are black and white paints (go figure). Her sire's DNA is on file but her dam is not. The parentage verification will cost me 120, one for her and one for her dam (if she's still alive) but APHA said they may waive it if I can't locate her or she is deceased.

the only thing I care about a horse is what sits right between its ears. If it has a good mind and conformation that won't lead to major bone and joint issues later then they are alright by me.

It doesn't matter what kind of training a horse has had if their mind is screwy. We have to have horses we can trust on a daily basis not to just freak with the kids that we teach so they have to be rock solid and sharp enough to know what they need to do.

One of the horses I broke and trained as a jumper I sold cheap because he was only paint breeding stock and wasn't registered...my goal wasn't to make $$, but to find him a real job (I didn't want to keep him - we didn't 'click')- He had a talent for jumping early on - found it totally by accident. I kept him for two years and put a little hunter training on him and a teeny bit of dressage and then put an ad out. I had some really looney people inquire but I held out and found him a superb home (even tho I wanted to shoot him because he fractured my hip - oh the joys of breaking and training 17hh 4yr olds who think they are king of the world).

Every now and then I spy on him thru a photographer's website to see how he's doing (shhhhh!! LOL!) and he seems to be doing fine with the people I sold him to....I blacked out faces since I'm totally being naughty and posting without permission...LOL...so this was a good, happy ending type scenario for an average unregistered gelding.

Good to hear TBJ! Keep us updated. Especially with pics!

Yes, silly horses that go tearing around when they are out of shape ;)

Can y'all believe it's going up to the 80's? In January? I guess I still haven't acclimated...

Mmmm I like everything about her except her front legs. They just seem so fine boned, I would be worried about them withstanding the high impact jumping. She is a very cute girl, though!

Anyone else's horses beginning to shed? Henny's starting to she out a little.

that's what my trainer said, we were thinking just some high impact jumping boots and special shoes would help take a load off of her front legs and help with the shock of higher jumping (once she's developed) or she may just grow them out on her own (since she's so young).

And Romeo was full body clipped 2 months ago so he's still nice and short :) hahaha :P beat the weather!
