hello from Illinois =)
I'm Lissa.. I'm 23 (almost 24) years old.. I live in east central Illinois.. and now onto the important part.. about the ponies =)
Skeeter.. 12 year old grade flea-bitten grey appy mare.. She's my first horse and even though an injury has caused her to be unsound for riding, she has a forever home. She's had 3 babies and was a horrible mother (she pawned them off on her sister except when it came time to eat LOL that was the ONLY time she wanted anything to do with them).
Hopper.. Skeeter's full sister.. 13 year old grey few spot leopard appy mare.. Originally we bought Skeeter & brought her home just so Skeeter would have company.. a couple months later, my dad bought her. She was my barrel and pole horse until a stifle injury ended her career and left her unsound for riding most of the time.
Reana.. 2 year old mini donkey jennet.. my pet project that I got last year for my birthday.. this summer I will be starting her in harness (ground driving only)
Remy.. yearling mini/pony mule jennet.. was supposed to eventually be the 2nd half of my team but I've realized that she's going to be more pony sized than mini (too tall for a pair)
Nameless (the new addition.. she's only been here a day).. 3 year old 54" QP x BS Paint.. I said no more young'ns but after she was pointed out to me on CL, I went to look at her and couldn't leave her in the situation she's in. Supposed to be broke to ride, only saw her ridden bareback for a couple minutes due to the icy ground. So far seems to be a nice lil mare, hoping for a few more inches of growth.. easy to catch.. and will be trying her out one day this week and seeing how well she rides
Sooooo that's my crew.. looking forward to being active and making some new friends =)
