My girly is APHA registered as "Powdered Patches." Her previous owner called her Patches, but I thought that was WAY too stereotypical (A Paint named Patches? REALLY?), so I changed her barn name to Calypso (because she has 2 blue eyes). I usually call her Caly.
I don't show, tried it a few times and it's really not my bag lol.
I got four, I'll start youngest to oldest...
Pixie (MJJZ Pixie Dust), stbd bred for pacing but jerkface boarder of ours left her at our stable when he moved all his horses out. Due to a small hernia he deemed her worthless. She's 3 now, just starting her under saddle lightly.
Diesel, my lil soul mate equss. Six yr old qh I had since birth. He's the most uncomfortable horse I think I ever rode but he's still the one I ride the most lol.
Bella, our PMU/bronc rehab girl we got in November 06. She's 15 now (geez already!)... Breed unknown, but assuming Clyde mix. A big comfy couch to ride, bareback is a breeze in all gaits. She's the husband's horse so I don't get to ride her as often as I want to, because the other's are too bouncy for him. (men, sheesh).
Last but not least, my Dancer... aka Dancer DOO. She's about 16 now. I traded a young arab gelding I didn't get along with for her, about five years ago. Her ex owner wanted an endurance prospect and I wanted something of sound mind, so it was perfect lol. Appies hold a special place in my heart, I rode them growing up and swear I will always have a spotted arse in my turnout.
I'm seriously considering buying this cute little Arabian filly, due to her pedigree, her color (I LOVE bay over any other color), her age and her price. She has atleast another year of serious growing to do, yet some people have told me that Arabians don't stop growing until their 7. Her registered name is Cambria Jamaal, the seller calls her Cami. I think I will call her Bria or Jammin (I'm a big Bob Marley fan!)
