    Vida's good-
    Willing
    Brave
    Nice smooth ride
    Has get up and go
    Patient
    Stands for anything (mounting bath etc.)
    I love her

    Vida's cons-
    Is a one person horse, not the one we'd put a green rider on as she is very quick. Her nickname is mosquito because she likes to buzz along.
    Hates mud, wants to pick up speed when going through it (I hate it to).
    She could be a bit taller maybe 15.1 she is 14.3

    Danny is perfect. Maybe not in your eyes, but he is the perfect horse for me!

    He's a hot little colt, but calm. He has a lot of go forward, but is not spooky. He'll look, but he's not afraid. He'll snort, but he is analyzing. He is responsive. He is gentle. He is not dead to the world. He doesn't freak out when I ask wrong or make a mistake. He has a masculine handsomeness(dare I say, 'rugged good looks with a dash of typical Saddlebred Arrogance' *sigh* why can't I find that in a guy?). He is a good mover. He likes me. And most importantly, he is mine.

    Cons: He is just 17 months old(fixable, just wait. It won't seem long but I will "soon" be complaining that he's 17 years old). He is still a stallion(fixable, just wait. Get paid, call the vet.). He is not going to be my "top show horse" but he'll be a top something. His mother's next foal will be so much better than he is. Um, he can have an attitude(fixable, just wait and do a little work).

    Like I said... Perfect...

    Good- He's mine , alwasy nickers when he sees me, friendly, a real sweet if he likes you, suprisingly good w/ kids, curious, brave even when he's kinda scared (he usually moves towards the "scary thing" unless it jumps at him), pretty face, beautiful colors/markings, fast, he's quick on his feet, very responsive to seat/leg cues, soft mouth, really comfortable gaits, and he's pretty green for his age so I get to work with him

    Bad - explosive if he feels trapped & gets scared, really nasty biter w/ other horses, gets herd bound easily, bird bones, little hooves, a little head shy, loves to get muddy, and he's pretty green for his age which can be hard

    Flame
    Good - I've had her forever & she taught me a lot about riding & put up with my stupid teenager antics, she's a fuzzy little bear in the winter, pretty bay color w/ high black stockings, pretty markings, she's very sweet if she likes you, great with the little ones (at least on a lead rope), very bombproof overall, and she's still got enough spice to be fun for a good walking trail ride (see below)

    Bad - Standoffish when you come to catch her, difficult with back feet (I think its arthitis tho), lazy w/ inexperienced riders, and she trips very badly esp if you are not moving her forward, has actually fallen on top of me about 15 times. This has improved since I started trimming her hooves using NH methods (mustang roll, etc). I wish I would've known this when she was younger...

    Overall they are my darlings and I love them way too much

    Boo:
    Good ; one clever little monkey, his cute little face, how he surprises me by being a brave boy when I expect him not to be , easy keep, his sturdyness.

    Bad point; doesnt mind throughing in a buck when he's excited, sometimes he's to clever for his own good , gets fat pretty easy. Wish he was just that little bit bigger, he's only 14.2hh.


    Foxy:
    Good; his cute little droopy lip, his colour ( he's grey ...well sometimes ), his hooves are a good size and strong, loves cuddles and brushes. Love his size at 15.2hh. Pretty face.

    Bad point; he's a right sook when on his own, gets silly and bucks plenty when excited ( even tho he's 24yrs old ) , hard keeper in winter, flys seem to live off his blood , his little pink nose which he hates having sunscreen put on to for protecting it, lol. His malenoma lumps .

    He's turning into a great trail horse
    He loves riding
    He loves hanging out with people
    He's extremely people-oriented
    His spooks are easily managed
    He doesn't like my cousin and tries to throw him (haha!)

    :islikes::
    He's a dork and is still young and 'green' (I think he's more 'blue-green' now, though)
    He doesn't quite get the 'stand still when I mount up' thing...
    He has kicking issues when undersaddle around strange horses (he's getting better, though)

    His temper. Tho he is a coming 2 year old, he has never really acted like a baby. Not much seems to really phase him and he is just so huggable. He will spend his day hugging you if he can.
