Val, you just made my day! Thank you so much!

Dancer's color and personality are just about all she has going for her, to be honest. That, and her willingness to carry my fat backside as far as she can. Her conformation leaves much to be desired. Good thing I can honestly say I bought her sight unseen!

My favorite color for a horse is actually a nice bay...like our Rain turned out to be!

Colors (as anything) is always a matter of taste. It's funny when sometime we own what we don't really care about making other people jealous about it. Lol!

For all the talk of papers and perfect conformation I believe that for 90% of people they would actually be happier with a good personality and a willingness to haul a fat backside around, color IS a bonus, but doesn't trump just being nice to live with.

Yeah, I agree. Two years ago when I first got Dancer, she terrified daughter and her hubby - they were afraid to go near her - and NONE of us wanted the grandkids around her. Daughter is still afraid to ride her...Now she is the best minded horse we have out there. Even my little 7 year old granddaughter leads her around with no issues. (NEVER unsupervised...as far as I know!)

I have been wondering if I'm too big to ride. I'm right at 245, am 5' 8" and am riding a well balanced horse of about 15.3. She is about 8 years old. We don't jump or trail ride, just play around on the farm. She usually rides for my tinny little 39 pound 5 yr old.

I think it really depends on how the horse is built. Conformation is important. The better put together the horse is the better it will be able to carry a heavy person.
