Share your Quarter Horses!
I see there are a lot of them out why not create a thread for them?

Be sure to include their name, birthday, age, colour, what they're used for & always always pictures :)

Meet Snazzy. Registered QH, 17 yrs old. Show name is Hittin' the Sauce. I'm purchasing her within the next few weeks.

Snazzy thinks she is the Queen of the barn. It took a lot of time to earn her trust and respect, but it was well worth it. She's an amazing horse, shown in Western Pleasure and Trail. She's 15.2 and is the definition of a mare!

Here she is in her new dress sheet!

Here's a few of mine.

Hondo, the old man, 30 yo stallion. Multiple AQHA All-Around Champ, did a bit of everything. He's now semi retired, does a few lessons with my intermediate students but mostly gets spoiled these days.

Jana, 25 yo mare, was my youth reining horse but did a bit of everything including jumping and speed events. She is my resident babysitter that shows my youngest riders the ropes, extremely tolerant of little ones but still has a whole lotta go for any competent adult that asks.

Lacey, 10 yo mare, was a heeling horse prior to me owning her. She is my hubby's trail horse and my broodmare.
Attachment 93347

Woodstock, 5 yo gelding. My personal project. What he does best? EAT and beg for more to eat. I had gotten him started when he sustained a tendon injury so was off for a good amount of time. Had him back under saddle for about 6 weeks or so. Plan is for him to eventually be an all arounder for my daughter (many miles and wet saddle pads down the road)
Attachment 93348

Merit, my youngest, 10 mo colt. Lacey's maiden foal. Haven't really decided yet what my plans are for him, just in the watch him grow up and see stage.

HONDO!! Drool!

Here is my hussy. 15.2 hh, 14 years old, Dashin Kings Quincy, AKA: Dash. Best trail horse EVER, best beginner horse, never been lame a day in her life. Love, Love, Love this mare!
Here is her "guilty" look, lady I didn't do it!
Notice she hardly EVER puts on a winter coat, so nice right now!

Lol! I need to get some pics scanned of him in his younger days. He's half the man he used to be with his fat old man neck, sway back and the ugly calcification on his right hind (dumb injury about 15 years ago but hasn't bothered him a bit)

This one is from about 5 years ago, still an old man though :wink:

Beautiful. I love, love, love foundation Quarter Horses.

MHFoundation Quarters 04-02-2012 09:48 AM

Thanks Susan :) Me too, my grandpa did good passing that love on to me, though he has taken to calling me a traitor lately since I bought myself a Hanoverian. :lol:

Okay everyone, let's see some more QHs! :)

He's just picture perfect, no matter what the age!
I agree Susan, just love me some QH butt and those nice thick chests!

I need to get some better pictures of Dash, those are really terrible.
She's SUCH a fatty, I think I'd guesstamate a 7+!
I was spraying her down yesterday, her back has fat rolls, and her butt is a little too large for her own good!
She actually put ON the lbs. this winter. Little does the fatty know we've got plenty of rides planned that will help take off a few...
Here she is at 6, not quite such a lard! My dear old man Rooster with her.

Don't feel bad Fly, mine put on a few lbs through winter too. Woodstock looked in foal ;) I may have hurt his feelings tacking him up lately as I sang "fat horse, little saddle."
