    I'm sorry to hear about Baby's fetlocks. What a shame! I have a horse who's going to turn 30 at the end of the month and I think it will be his last birthday. He's already missing 4 molars and once that starts, it's like dominoes unfortunately...

    You have really nice horses - just went through your photo album. Was the Percheron / Arab cross named "Baby" because of your humorous streak? ...and because "Mini" was taken? ...I hope the mum was the Percheron, otherwise OUCH!

    Your Chivas looks a bit like Chip in build - and has the same nice head carriage in a snaffle!

    He is very docile, just needs to know that he has a leader. But, like any horse, he does have a point where he can lose it and go out of control. People are the same way.

    Just want you to know that I have enjoyed sharing also. Glad you came to the Over 40 thread

    I am on blood thinners because of chronic blood clots. I have two artificial knees and osteoporosis. So, the deck is stacking against me as I age. Red is out of prides generator a wgc twh. He big 17hh is powerful and loves to gait on down the road. I rode him for a long time until I had a total hysterectomy. That did something to me emotionally and when I went to get on Red one day after the doc had cleared me, I had a full blown anxiety attack. Red sensed right off and got upset too. I made the mistake of

    getting off when he started jumping around and he caught on quickly. Smart horse! He lost his confidence in me. I lost my position as herd leader. He seems to be able to differentiate between genders of his riders. My soon to be neighbor (a female) was nervous riding him and he sensed it. When the guy that has him now came to evaluate him, Red did better than I have ever seen him do. He is a good boy, it's me. I don't know if I can regain his confidence in me. Without that, I cannot be his herd leader. That's a must for a good horse and rider relationship.

    I couldn't post the whole piece, the forum said I have too many characters. Had to split my reply up.:)

    Giving up Red was terrible. But, I felt it was the best thing for him, because he is in his prime and needs to do more than just stand all day long and eat hay. The farm that is marketing him will have a better chance for him to find a forever home where he can be appreciated. I went this route because of the fear he might be sent to the slaughter house in Mexico. If someone would pay the amount they have for him on the site, it would be unlikely he would be in that danger. As for me, as long as he is here, the temptation to ride him is overwhelming. If he is not sold by these people, I may have him back and I may throw caution to the wind. I don't know, I have been grieving for him, but, at the same time, trying to keep in mind it is the best thing for him.

    I really enjoy this thread, but I return to work tomorrow, so I will have a harder time keeping up. G'night.

    AnitaAnne Don't worry about keeping up. Just join us when you can. I really understand your enjoying the over 40 thread so much. I am the same way. So just chime when you get a chance even if you are not able to read all posts. Have a great day and God bless

    That thing about "a mule can't be bred, so why compete?" is a bit ironic considering how heavily dressage is populated with geldings, hee hee haw haw.

    You sure about the TB? What about something exotic and usually not done, like crossing with an Andalusian? Although I suppose a well-conformed TB broodmare is more economical to come by...

    Ohren is OK, but not quite long and pretentious enough for extra humour. Maybe "Ohrenprinz" or "Madame Wunderohr" - that's not quite right yet either. I'll have to put my thinking cap on... this has so much potential...

    The image of a highly trained dressage mule and all its potential has been with my overactive imagination today. You so need to do this! And imagine - beating someone snooty with an expensive Warmblood at piaffe with a mule, ha ha ha! (Or should that be hee-haw!) ...and no reason at all it shouldn't be possible. You just have to find the right animal. It's a brilliant idea. You'd probably even be allowed to compete on one. It's still an equine!
