Hi from the Backwoods

Since 1982 I owned a black Arabian gelding who was five years old when I bought him. In 2011 this special horse named Alec passed away peacefully at the good old age of 29. It took me a year before I got another horse, on the complete opposite side of the spectrum. A 16.2 hand high, compare to Alec's barely 15 hands, black Percheron mare named Spice. It was a big changed going from a horse who was always all go and no stop to one who needs urging to even move sometimes. Also in my little spot in Tennessee is my German Shepherd Ajax, who is still a year old and is in the process of filling out. I do mostly pleasure trail and I'm also have started to learn how to drive a cart, which Spice came with. I have 10 brothers and sisters, me being included in that number. There are five girls,me being the eldest, and five boys. My parents raised Quarter Horses when I was little on a farm near Medicine Lake Montana, which has long been sold. Well here are pictures of the grew.

Welcome to the forum.

Your arabian was truly stunning; those are special relationship to cherish for ever.

A percheron is indeed quite a change from your arabian. But still black! Those gentle giants have such kind souls and hearts.
