Nuisance i love watching the halter classes at the arabian show but for the life of me cannot see how that shows off anything more than their spirit.
Cassuis will be trained for in hand sporthorse and maybe a little halter but not much.
Those yearlings are pretty though. Shalom

A lot of different colors also. Looked like a palamino, and maybe even a smokey palamino, darker mane and tail, but no darkness on legs. but the pale tan color. maybe it was greying out, and just didn't come thru the camera well. Or maybe they come in palamino, just haven't seen one.

They actually have that one on the screen now, or in that class, infront of the camera occasionally

ETA: it got 5th place, but seeing it again, think it was just greying out.

Arabians do not carry dilute genes so no palominos buckskins or smoky blacks. No tobiano, frame, silver or any of those fun colours and markings.
Officailly they only can be registered as grey, black, bay or chestnut.
On paper my breed of choice looks rather boring. Until you see them in action. Shalom

Lol I know! I just laughed and said they'll be fine. They've got THICK winter coats, especially my pony. He'd a Welsh pony so he's breed to live in the freezing mountains. Henny surprisingly had a boat almost as thick as Bubba's, so I'm not worried about either of them.

If it were raining it would be a different story. Cold and raining I'd something I wouldn't make them stand in. I'm sure they would be fine, but it'd be for my peace of mind. I'd be warm and comfortable in my bed while they wwould be outside soaked and shivering.

Y'all should also keep in mind to watch for signs of colic. With the weather changing so drastically day by day, they're more likely to get an upset tummy.

DBA, why does the judge put the clipboard infront of the horses nose? To see if it spooks from it? Most every one will touch it's nose to it. And, I noticed the handlers will hold up a fist, and the horse touch it's nose to the fist. Just wondering why the clipboard?

I believe it is to keep the horse focused on its handler. I have seen this time and time again. The only other reason I have been given is to get the horse to stretch its neck out.
Thats one of the questions I am going to get an answer from the trainer when Cassius goes for training. Shalom

Linda, I second what mammaK wrote almost exactly. I have some extensive experience keeping older horses without teeth. I don't know where your lady stands as far as dental health, but you can't go wrong starting out with a diet that mammaK spelled out and that will work well with or without teeth - just soak it first if in doubt and you should be fine. If you know for a fact her teeth are fine, give her an endless supply of this years cut hay. In fact, the only thing I did differently was I fed Triple Crown senior soaked instead of SafeChoice - only b/c I could get my hands on it easier.

I don't know anything about the feed you mentioned - haven't heard of it but that doesn't mean it isn't any good.

Horses are high maintenance and expensive when they get older and skinny - I think that is just how it is. It is one helluva commitment in so many ways to try to bring one back to condition - kudos to you for taking an interest in this mare and giving your heart and soul to give her a home!

Clippityclop is finally getting to spend some time in the saddle!

We do feed Safe Choice, I'll have to check out the senior one. Not sure if they sell it at TSC, but I'll check. We do have some $10 off coupons for any Nutrena product.

I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome. I'm really enjoying being here. No snooty people here that get their noses in a snit over the littlest of things.
