Introduction of ... well, me!

So how horrible is this, I can't even remember signing up for this forum let alone introducing myself! An email about a reminder of new things here and I thought, "I joined there?!?!" - obviously I did... so let me introduce myself, or, if I have in the past, re-introduce myself again...

I'm Sam. I'm in Australia, I have too many horses (always the way and it would never change LOL) including a handful of retired horses, the oldest being a spitely 28 year old who I've had since he was 17 - he retired from offical competition back in 2003 when he was 22, he retired sound, but his heart just wasn't there anymore. And when he started pulling up at fences and not showing me the spark that was normally there, I knew it was time and he was asking to take a back seat in life and not be at the fore-front anymore. I also have a mix of Warmbloods and Thoroughbreds - most of the TB's being your racehorse rejects and rescues that I've saved from heading to the "meat train" as we call it here (ie: the slaughter house) and two of them are now my top C Grade Showjumpers. Unfortunatly I haven't competed for near on 2-3 years because of injury and then I was involved in a near fatal car accident JUST when I was coming back and had to take another year off. I'll get back soon though! LOL

My other love is Model Horse Art (I'll post photo's in the Horse Art section soon) and I do occassionally take on comissions but because of time restraints I try to keep them at a minimum (as impossible as that is).

I'm unoffically engaged to a cowboy and mother to two step-son's (we're yet to do the offical announcement but we've being calling ourselves married for months now) an American boy actually who is currently on the move to Australia to live here permenatly with me - And it didn't take him moving across the world for me to know excatly what I mean to him

Ok I've babbled enough.... looking forward to wondering around here every so often.

Welcome and enjoy the ride.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
