Smile Newbie from Alberta, Canada

Good Morning Everyone,

I found this forum by accident and found it just wonderful, so decided I better join. I live near Thorsby, Alberta & raise, show & ride Paints, Arabians & Colored Partbred (Sport Horse type). Have had horses all my life and love raising them as well as trail riding. Have a few show horses, but I generally leave that to the professionals (in the ring). We presently have three stallions, a APHA/PtHA 16.2 hh B&W Sport horse & 2 homozygous Black Arabians. One is presently in Sask. Getting ready for the 2011 show season with our trainer. I love raising the foals, this time of year gets me pretty excited seeing everyones foal pics... I also must admit I love trail riding & just getting out and enjoying the out doors & enjoying time with my horses/family! I hope to meet some new horse friends and find out what everyone is up to.

Cheers Sonja

Welcome fellow Albertan!
Is that your stud at the bottom? I've seen so many ads for him, he's beautiful!

Welcome! Love your avatar! I am a sucker for a black and white paint, no matter what the breed, but then again, I am a bit bias.

Hi Lilruffian, yes that is our boy Flashy, he was originally from BC as well as the two mares Lances Flash Back (his dam) & Quarter Paige in my pictures. Here is a picture of Flash & I. I just LOVE him, he is s sweet heart, acts more like a gelding, he is 12 years old in 2011. Where do you live in Alberta?

Hey,

I've also noticed his ad around. He's sure beautiful. I am also from Alberta though I don't own any paints or arabians like you. My mom wants to breed to an Arabian though if we end up buying the mare I'm training.

I live near Edson, actually ;) I LOVE b&w paints (especially true blacks).
