Fantastic!

Are you coming down for worlds? Let me know if you need any help, or just want someone to cheer you on! I'm not bringing a horse but I'll be around. :)

We are coming down for Worlds - and would love to meet you in person :) ... I'll be there on the 7th, going home the 16th - looking very forward to it. In Hand trail is a hard go for him, because he really likes to look around and isn't careful with his feet - we are working on it though... he's 15.2 at the hip now so is still growing into his legs ;)

Mine's the same way, especially since the trail courses seem to be all poles. Personally, I can barely get over a whole course of raised poles myself xD. We did IHT at the Reichert and no more, hehe. I wanted to take Lily for the longeline, but she's just too growthy right now. It wouldn't sit well with me.

But I will come find you! Let me know what classes you are thinking about.
And what's the breeding on this one? You always seem to pick up neat little horses.

He is by The Masked Asset - a 16.1 homozygous tobiano and out of a R Big Time Fancy mare ... he's my project baby - I will be showing him in the Silver Breeders Futurity Yearling Geldings and In Hand Trail as well as the Open and Amt in hand trail and tobiano color classes. I wanted to do longeline with him, but he is head in the air and full speed ahead - just wasn't his thing... He is eventually going to be my husbands horse so I am just playing at this with him - He has picked up 4 Amt gelding halter points and 2 in open, taking a Grand and Reserve at our first show - very happy with that :)

I love your babies as well, Oh Vair Oh - you have a very nice barn :)

Daisy finished the year very well also, we earned over 40 points in 4 shows, and got her ROM in trail and just a few points shy of her ROMs in NA Western Pleasure and Hunter Under Saddle, and got points in Open and Amt Mares, horsemanship, hunt seat eq, junior trail, and even Barrel Racing ... we were High Plains Paint Horse Club High Point Novice Amt Overall and in every individual NA class except Showmanship, and took the Open and Amt Year End High Points as well in Halter Mares. I'm going to breed her next year for my next futurity prospect... can't wait.

Come find me at the show!!

Very nice!! What a handsome horse. You've done a great job.

Is that flat land or what?
