Such excitement!!! DH has many pipe dreams...he wants to rope(header), do mounted shooting, ranch rodeos and the list goes on. After all that he wants to sell his best horse because she's only 14.2 and the other is right at 15hh but knows nothing! He says because of her size but then again, what do I know??

kctop rmind your husband that some of the best roping horses in the NFR are under 15 hands and those are some big boys that ride them.
IMO for cattle work, playdays, or reining a QH over 15 hands is at a disadvantage with its agility. Shalom

The shorter Henny is, the better IMO. I like the midgets. Both his parents are under 15 hands, so I'd like Henny to stay in that area as well! Closer they are to the ground, the cattier they are. As it is, Henny does sliding stops and roll backs in the pasture just for fun. He's obviously a natural at it, just gotta polish it up when it comes time for training ;)

kayella this is a QH mare and pretty certain she is purebred. her filly is amazing and was a well planned breeding.
i have always wondered if someone stole her and that is how she ended up at the auction. that or the drought forced her sale.
In a few months anyone interested in a nice sorrle Qh mare that is well broke?
She may well be free to a good home. After she gains wieght Im going to ride her to see if she is trained for anything special. she looks like she mihgt be a good barrel horse. Shalom

And all this time I thought she was an Arabian Maybe if someone actually used their brand new camera and took pictures, I would have known! Bahaha, she sounds like a good horse. A lot of great horses end up at auction these days due to the economy. It's a shame, but it's a necessary evil sometimes. Hopefully she finds a great home after you get her back into shape. Too bad they undid all your hard work when they stole her back. What are you feeding her currently? Does this mean the filly is officially weaned? Sorry I'm overloading you with a million questions LOL

This is getting serious. TG, with her beguiling and infectious personality almost had me wanting to partake in the Harlequin assault! Mmmm... rabbit stew! Must be my French heritage. I will not succumb, TG!

Whew, catching up again, have a few minutes before getting back to work.

DBarabians, thank goodness you got your mare back! People can be really crazy. Did the thief get a jail sentence, or anything?

Hey, TBJ, are you heading to LA this weekend for the grey jumper? Oh, and I can't resist this... time to get back on task! What class are you in now haha. You know I'm a teacher, don't ya? I personally am on my conference period now. My students can play on their Ipads all they want after they finish the work for the day, which is practically never LOL

Had a wonderful, sweaty ride last night with my mare. Seriously, it was so hot out there!

My colt got a hefty dose of penicillin Wednesday. Was acting dopey and had a temp of 103. Vet came out and left more penicillin and we put him in a stall through today. My horses are vaccinated, but we think that the strangles outbreak that hit our barn got to him, since he is a yearling, just a mild case. My vet says that the outbreak has been bad, even hit the Stock Show. It has pretty much run its course at our place. Good thing, since we have a new foal about to arrive any day now. Yes, I will post pics. Not my horse, though.

Going to go pick up that truck tomorrow that I looked at last week. Still somewhat hesitant going deisel as opposed to gas, just because of the cost of repairs on diesel engines. Most likely won't have any, being a Dodge!

Back to work...
