Hello from Michigan

I guess I should introduce myself. I am 31 and have 1 child, an 8 year old daughter. I have been riding horses since I was 6. I spent my youth riding in 4-H and local arabian shows. I care for over 20 Friesians for a living. I own 3 horses, Chardonnay, a saddlebred park horse, retired. Siouxie, a 3 year old arab mare I just started. Kaytie, a 13 year old arabian, she is all scared up from a fence fight from long before I got her. My plans are to breed Chardonnay to an arabian stallion next year, trail ride Kaytie, and show siouxie on local and arab circuts. My daughter doesnt ride ours, just yet. She rides a QH gelding named Jessie, he is her baby.

Here are the girls....

Siouxie, yes, she is on a diet!

Pretty horses, I'm completely jealous over the Friesian thing. Lucky!

Welcome from another Michigander! :) I like Siouxie. I have a fat little arab, too.

Welcome! I'm a newbie too. Your horses are very pretty--and wow, what a great job you have; taking care of Friesians sounds awesome o_o

Hi! My name is Katie :) Your horses are all very pretty!

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Thanks everyone. It is a privilidge to work where I do, good bosses and some of the us's best of the breed. The horses there are just what one imagines they are. Big, Black, Bold and FRIENDLY! Although, If they were mine Id shave the feathers. The scratches are terrible.
My girls are all outcasts. I got 1 for free, 1 for $100 and one for $500. The one that is all scarred up and doesnt have papers was the $500 one!
I got Chardonnay because her owner brought her home from the trainers and couldnt handle her. She deemed her dangerous and was only selling her to somone who was willing to prove they could handle her. She isnt bad, just, bold, and she thought, until I got her, she was in charge. My fiance called her a saddledragon and it has stuck. She bit and was just kind of a pain, but she bit me 1 time, hasnt been a problem since. My 3 yo was owned by a nice lady that had to move to a place that only allowed 4 horses, she had 5. So she was mine. Kaytie was owned by a breeder, traded to the amish for training, then sold at auction to a lady that thought she would make a lesson horse, she must have been drugged, she is a very nervous horse. Thats how I got her, too much for a lesson horse, too scared up to be shown. I just have been lucky.

And yes, mares are my favorite. I have 2 female dogs and a female cat too. No male animals unless I find my dream stud.
