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.

Admin :)

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....
