Hey from Kansas

My name is Deb, and I live in the country in Kansas.

As a kid, my folks raised appy's, and my brother and I rode in fun shows, little britches rodeos and the like. My area of showing was in western pleasure, barrels, pole bending, and bareback broncs. It was a fun time in my life and I hope, in the future, to get back into the fun shows.

My husband recently purchased a 4 yr old appendix bay mare for me, for my 50th birthday. This was after 18 yrs of telling me he would never buy me a horse, so it was a big surprise.

My mare's name is Tee Jay Hired Money (Sandy's Honest Money x Handy Bee Jay), but we just call her TJ. She is a bit of a handful right now, only green broke, but we are working a little bit everyday to increase her knowledge. She is taking right to it, very smart/quick learner.

Hi Deb,

Welcome to The Horse Forum! I look forward to learning more about your experience with horses and TJ. Do you have any pictures of her you can post?

Thank you and once again, welcome.

This is TJ. The bright white spot above her right eye is medicine, not a marking. She got a booboo in the trailer, bringing her home.

She is 16 hands and right about 1000 lbs. She was underweight when we got her and we have her on a feeding schedule, recommended by a local equine nutritionist, to up her weight some.

Thanks for the welcome.......

TJ is beautiful! I hope her boo boo heals soon and that the diet proves effective.

thank you, I think she is beautiful also!!

The booboo is completely gone now. Can't even tell it was ever there.

Since we purchased her, almost a month ago, she has added about 66 lbs. So I think she is coming along nicely in the weight department.

I will be posting in the training list for a little assistance with her....

Lovely horse! Glad to hear her little bump healed
