Getting to drive SOME !!
I have finally gotten the "meteor crater" in front of my barn FLATTENED!! Over the past 3 days I have actually driven Tootsie twice, Gavotte once, and Chance twice.

I had only ridden Chance since he came back from being sold.... The lady's animal communicator said he wanted to be MY horse, not hers, so I sold her his younger brother, who is slower and a bit quieter. She had had troubles with him that I had never had, and I had no problems with him coming out cold and fresh, just hook up and go!!

My driving area is about 35 meters wide, and 95 meters long, so we won't be having any advanced shows here,lol. It is fairly flat, but not laser level, because we had to have some drainage across it.

It is raining now, so it will be a few days before I drive again, but it was REALLY nice while it lasted!!

Green Tree I like your cart and pony. Very stylish looking. I'm redoing my meadowbrook cart. Sanding then I'll paint it. A nice deeper brown with darker blue detailing. My horse is in my avatar. I think the colors would look nice with him. I'm going to see him tomarrow. He's at the trainers, learning to pull. He's been there 5 weeks now. I really miss him.
Anyway. I like your rig.

Thanks, Nine! That cart was made by a friend of mine out of antique lumber, and all of the metal details were forged by him. They let me use it for that show.

i use to cover tricky and tammy from hoof to muzle and have there tails in a tail bag as well.
i got the idear from my frends dog as his long haired german shepard brought half the garden in lol.
so i did a bit of thinking and cogs wored and the smell of burning and a light bulb shone bright.
why not for the ponys.
so i got intouch with a company called cosy pet and thay sent a pattern and another and we had it prefected we had a horse rug to keep any pony clean.
it streached from her ears to the base of her tail it was red and had a zip along the back and also had legs.
on all four legs had zips as the hoof would be to big to pass so we redesignd it.
also i got a tail bag from shires equestrian.
i bathed them in the morning and i also have a horse hair dryer it blows hot air into the rug and drys the coat it is made by trockenmax a german company.
i also use a superdandy horse vacume as well it has a curry comb and a dandy brush attachmentsill post some pictures in stanley i also have one of my frends pony charlie.

Foxtail Ranch 04-14-2013 11:55 AM

I am very excited because we found our new home. It's 33.8 acres, flat and professionally fenced, with a huge hay barn and stock feeders. It used to be the bull field for a very large ranch.

Anyway, it's been 3 years since we drove because we didn't have the space. We move on May 13!

Bwahahah aaa! I turned the Morgan out in the arena so he wouldn't get so muddy, and he pawed the small puddle into mud, then rolled in it, and his ENTIRE side was covered! He is such a pig in the stall, so I was trying to save myself a bit of work.
