Howdy From Texas!

Hi everyone! I just randomly came across this site and thought I would join.

I used to go to horse camp when I was younger and always wanted a horse of my own, finally about 7 years ago my mom started dating a cowboy and he introduced us to the world of horse ownership when he bought my mom her first horse.

I started taking care of a couple of horses but never had one I could truly call my own until I purchased my mustang, Cheyenne, about 3 years ago. I didn't know it at the time but I was getting a two for one deal! She and another horse managed to wander out an open gate and they were missing for 3 days. I finally saw an ad in the paper stating someone had found 3 horses and almost didn't call on it because we had only lost 2. Something told me I had better and sure enough it was Cheyenne and my mom's horse, Tip....and a brand new colt!

Pretty shocking considering she never showed any signs of being bred and the guy I bought her from never mentioned that she had even been exposed to a stud. All things aside, she had a healthy colt and this coming April he will be a 2 year old. Let the training begin!

I've never started a colt but we got through halter breaking and some groundwork fairly smoothly, I'm excited to get started!

I love to trail ride and go to church arena nights and functions with my horse. I live in the city so unfortunately I don't get to keep my horses at my house with me but my parents have been more than happy to keep mine for me as they have two horses as well.

Here is my girl:

And here she is with Stetson at one day old

Stetson all grown up
