Howdy from Alabama

Howdy everyone. I'm sure some of you will recognize me from another forum but if not, my feelings won't be hurt

I have 3 horses right now.

Storm an 8yo appaloosa gelding. He is an awesome horse, just has some issues from his past. He came to me from a very good friend, whom is registered here as PaintedCity. My hubby is hoping he will become his riding horse. I plan to put him behind a few cows and see if he can make a cowpony as well as maybe turn some cans,. He's very smart and eager to please just weary at first.

Pedey a 7yo APHA gelding. He's an awesome horses as well and if all things work out right, my future barrel horse. He came to me from another friend with a few issues that we have mostly worked out. He just wants to please and with the direction to do so, excels.

Dixie is a 5yo mare hubby got me this year for our anniversary. She was supposedly trained to drive and ridden just a little. After working with her, I don't think she was trained to drive and she is very green. Very sweet and quiet though. Amazing mind once she realizes that work time is work time and she can't just do whatever she wants LOL.

I have 2 small children, both boys whom show great interest in riding and horses in general.

My hubby is an OTR trucker and new to horses but I think he's hooked. He got tossed not long ago and is eager to get back in the saddle. He couldn't at the time of the wreck because he got knocked out and messed his back up pretty good.

Besides working with 3 green horses, I am also a full time student and stay at home mom. I stay pretty busy and sure wish there were more hours in a day, or I at least had a lighted arena for riding at night when I can't sleep!

Hope to get to know yall better here.

Oh neat! I don't often meet to many others from Bama on forums. I'm just north of Gadsden. Thanks for the welcome.
