I'm from west-central IL, and am owned by Royalty, a black/white paint mare. I owned 3 geldings while in High School, 2 Standardbreds and QH/Morgan cross. The 2 SB's were rescues, and my dad purchased the QH/Morgan from a farm in CO. We lived in NC at the time. All 3 were great horses, and I long to find one like my boys again! As a "creeping up on 40" year old mom, I'd love to find a great horse for not only me but my son.
Anyway, I'm hoping to get some good info here, and have found that my lovely Paint mare is just too much for me. 20 years makes a HUGE difference! haha Oh well, I admit my weaknesses, and hope to learn from them :)
