Love the new pics! Do you have any head shots and front views of Khassie? I'd like to see her a face a little better.

Being horseless is the pits!!

I am guilty too of taking advantage in the market to buy good quality brood stock.
Hopefully when the market rebounds. The two of us will be sitting pretty.
That is a nice mare and great addition to your herd. Good luck. Shalom
Well-- this one I did not plan on getting. Sad series of events brought her to me. My trainer's lifelong friend- also a trainer and breeder has been fighting cancer for 2 years- and is now terminal, and instead of selling them to unknowns- wanted her placed with good people who would use her and treat her well. My trainer took a few horses as well. I send her updates and pics and she is ecstatic that she'll be bred to Dream.
But in every other case-- it has been somewhat serendipitous; these opportunities just seemed to have fallen in my lap, mostly as a result of friendships with other breeders. For instance-- just bought down another lovely mare from up North.. I have though, known that collecting my stock in these times will benefit me later as the market will rebound as it always does, and I can wait..
I wish I could keep the prices high single-handedly..lol

Yes-- we think much alike. Thanks for the compliment about Khassie!

I bought a couple of mares a greatly discounted prices due to the drought and the former owner knowing that I take good care of my horses,
Another mare was practically given to me when I deleivered some hay to a rancher that had nothing to feed his cattle and horses due to the drought.
Gave him the hay and talked about the nice mare standing in his pasture. He insisted on delivering her that same day. Shalom

I have had people try to give me horses, but not nice horses.

I've had that end of it too.. but I have to invest in what I can use, though I do take in rescues from time to time..

I'll see what I can find..haven't had a chance to get many pics of her and been letting her get a bit more presentable before taking them.

Here's a few of her starting back to saddle. Now I'm sure there'll be someone that says her form sucks, but she's been off 2 years due to her prior owner's cancer battle and is very out of shape and rusty with the more difficult techniques. She is, however, willing and has heart.





BTW-- this is not me riding her, but a friend who's using her to show. I am not good enough to show ride-- know squat about it..LOL

She is a very nice mare, Dru. If you decide you don't want her, you can send her up my way.

Thanks Celeste.. You're a good friend wanting to take her for me.. LOL
I guess the best compliment about a horse is when other people would like to have them.
