New to the board

Hello!

My name is Troy and I own a 6 1/2 TB (Beamer) and a 5 year-old Paint (Stormy). Both are pretty new to the family, but fitting in well. I have had Stormy for two months and I got Beamer Saturday. Stormy really belongs to my little girls Breana, but ultimately I know she is my responsibility. Both horses are on my mom’s property until I close on my new place which is going to offer 16 acres of pasture. I plan to add three more horses to the family once we have our new place, but need to work them in slow.

I am looking for local people that I can hang with or organized groups. If anyone knows of some around Houston, TX please let me know.

I had horses my entire childhood, but have not had one for a good 15 years. I know I am showing my age. So, I am really discovering I do not know as much as I need to, so I am in learning mode.

Anyway, glad to be here.

Hi Troy, and Welcome!

I can't help with suggesting any local groups etc, because I live in the UK. But I'm sure there's pleanty of guys/gals on here who could help.

I think everyone is still learning about horses, no one could truthfully say they know everything they need to know. Well maybe some could.
Your property sounds lovely, lucky you! Do you have any pics of Beamer and Stormy. We all love pics on here!

I'm not saying my age either, but I had a 7 yr break from horses, and its amazing how much I'd previously learnt etc all came back to me.

I have some pictures, but they are not great. I am going to take some more today as long as the weather holds.

Here is one to give you an idea. Beamer is a big boy.

They are gorgous, I have a couple friends with gorgous Paint horses, and that stable I used to ride at had quite a few Thoroughbreds. :<) :~>

They are both pleasure horses. We ride them around the trails in our area. I just got Beamer, so he has not been out of the pasture yet. I did ride him in the pasture to make sure he was going to be a good boy. This weekend I will see how he does outside. I have to watch him, he is scary fast and loves to run. :P

Here is a better picture of Stormy. I had to get this one from my work computer.

What beautiful colouring! I'm jealous!

I mainly ride for pleasure, although I do go to local shows for jumping and dressage.

They're really lovely, must be so pleased with them both.

Thing I love most is they are both young horses, but mind so well. They still need a little work, but for 5 and 6 they rock!

Of course, when Beamer loves on me I have to say it can hurt. :P I was putting some stuff in his ears the other day and he was not real happy about that, but who would be.

We are very happy, now we need to get three to four more. Having four kids is rough!

Are all your children into riding then?

I have two kids, it doesnt interest my son, occasionally he'll come and ride if he thinks some of the younger girls will be around! :roll:
My daughter rides all the time though, so she has her own pony.

Must be great to have so much land and be able to have them home. I have to keep mine at a livery yard, although we should be moving ourselves soon, but I'll only have 3.5 acres.
