My name is Heather and I am new to The Horse Forum (obviously ). I have to say that it is absolutely amazing! I'm already addicted.
So a little about myself, I am 18 and born and raised in Southern Cali. I have been riding since I was 10. I have a love affair with Paint horses, though I love all breeds. I had a wonderful black and white Paint gelding, Pay Day Oreo Magic aka Domino, that I rescued from an abuse/neglect situation when he was 2, I was 12, I started him and we were winning blues within months! I showed him a lot as a 3 year old, and then after that we would show a few times a year, but mostly he was just my everything horse, I could ask him to do anything... jumping, cattle sorting, barrel racing, western pleasure, giving lessons...anything I asked him to do, he would put his whole heart into it, even if he really didn't really enjoy that particular activity. Unfortunately, I had to sell him last year due to financial reasons, but luckily his new mom texts me all the time and sends me pics and videos of him, and I'm very glad he is somewhere where he is loved and spoiled like he was with me.
Anyways, my current horse is a 10 year old mare, Zippos Love Letters aka Lovie. She is triple registered Paint, QH, and Pinto. Seal bay with overo face and four white socks. I show western pleasure on her, and she is ALWAYS in the blues. This mare is an attention-getting. I get compliments on her every where I go. She is the best thing in my life right now...
Anyways, I talked more about the horses then me, but I'm looking forward to getting to know you all! If anyone ever wants to chat, let me know, I am always up for making new friends!
