Hello from Virginia!

Hi everyone! My name is Katie. I'm new here and I joined to refresh myself on taking care of horses. I've had horses and ridden since I was 9, but I've always boarded them, so I may have some questions here and there since they will be at my house soon. I own one horse and my mom owns a horse and they will be together at my house. We have the barn and are still working on the fencing. My horse's name is Jamaican Tan "Tanner", he's a Thoroughbred, and was used for lessons while I was away at college. He's about 21 or so. My mom's horse is named Sure, Tuff, and Flashy "Flashy", and he's the same age. He is a Quarter Horse. I haven't ridden in quite awhile due to life being crazy busy, but I plan to change that. :) I've always ridden English and enjoy jumping. I was never big on showing because I always ended up having something happen to me. (Falling off, injuring myself, embarrassing myself, etc.) I plan to have them as pleasure horses and it'll be great to have them around. Anyway, take it easy on me since I might have some stupid questions here and there! I look forward to learning even more.

Thanks in advance! :) :)

Welcome to the HF!! Any chance you're a hokie fan? :) I studied Animal Science at Virginia Tech a few years ago! LOVED IT! Absolutely love Virginia (my favorite state and oh so sad I no longer live there!). I haven't found a city that is quite as beautiful as BBurg.

Hope you enjoy it here!

Welcome Katie... I actually think I know your horses... In fact... I think I used to ride Flashy for lessons... I could be way off, but how many people have horses named Flashy and Tanner? Tanner would be a bay and Flashy would be a chestnut... Right?

Thanks everyone!

Farmpony84, did you ride at LaGrange Farm in King George? If so, then yes, you do know them. :) And yes, Tanner is a dark bay with no white and Flashy is a chestnut with four white socks and a star, strip, and snip. You might have met me, but I'm not around and wasn't around much for awhile because of college, work, and just life. That and its awkward going over there when no one really knows who I am anymore. I guess I just feel like an outsider now. *shrug*

Yep! I kept Pistol there in field board. Flashy was my favorite horse to ride... Him and Superstar. I think I did meet you and your mom once. WAY back before Bob was w/ his current wife! LOL....small world.....

Very cool! The horses are currently in the pasture, since I can't afford to have them in the barns anymore, now that Bob isn't using them for lessons anymore. We will be moving them to my property once we finish putting up the fence and stuff. We have a small barn up now and have the fence posts up and one rail of fence up. It's coming along, slowly but surely. I can't wait until they are at home with me though.

that will be nice. I love having mine at home with me. YOU MEAN THEY ARENT IN THE HIGH CLASS BARN ANYMORE???????

I moved pistol from pasture to paddock becuase I couldnt catch him... and then he coliced so I moved him to the low class barn... well, middle class I think, I forget, I remember each barn had different prices.... LOL.....

I thought for a long time he was getting ready to retire but they are back into heavy showing again.....

YOU WILL LOVE HAVING YOUR BABIES AT HOME!
