    Hi from Eastern Kansas...

    I found this site just a couple days ago, so I haven't read much (and there is a lot of reading to do). It looks like a nice community, with ideas from all over the world.

    (Sorry, this got a lot longer than I intended... but when I talk horses I can't help it.)

    I am what I would call "semi retired" farrier, horse trainer and licensed nurse. I was born & raised in Minnesota, we relocated to Eastern Kansas almost a year ago because the winters were getting too severe for us in Minnesota. I love the Kansas winters!

    I have 3 horses of my own, all Registered Arabians. My gray gelding "Star" is 22 this year. He is my go anywhere, do anything, high spirited, extremely smart, stereotypical Arabian. He is a blast to ride.

    Then there is my black mare "Cricket", who is 7 this year. She was given to me as payment for training a different horse. She has a laid back attitude but is not what I would look for as far as conformation. I researched for years looking for the right stud to improve the conformation faults yet accentuate the disposition of my mare and I think I found the perfect mate. The breeding was done by AI, and the result was a beautiful filly.
    "Pearl" is 8 months old and (in my eyes) nearly perfect in conformation, her attitude is sweet and curious and she is very people oriented. There is nothing I do to her that she doesn't accept willingly.

    I have, temporarily, my son's 9 yr old Quarter Horse and 8 month old National Show Horse. They will be gone as soon as the grass grows in the spring in MN.

    Welcome to the forum. We all tend to get long-winded when it comes to horses. LOL. Have fun posting.

    Thanks for the welcome. You can see pictures of my babies in my 'barn'. It took me a while to figure out that option, I think I did it right.

    Your photos all made it to the barn. Does Pearl have a little white snip on his nose? They are all beautiful.

    Yes, Pearl has a tiny little snip on her nose, and 2 diagonal white socks. That's where her name came from.
    Thank you, I think they are beautiful too.
