Yes ma'am! There are a few there that pop out at me. Aladdinn, Galeon, Gammar and Congo for sure. I *think* Gaamara also, although I seem to want to spell that different so I might be remembering her wrong. Other than her most of the mare's I don't recognize. I'm guessing because back then it was all about the stallion and forgetting that there was another side to the equation involved in all this!

That's what I was thinking. When I had 6 horses, I didn't have time to relax! All that grooming, stall cleaning, vet appointments, farrier appointments, and tack cleaning! Yikes

I know you meant the movie- but occasional bad weather days, I do something different.
But-- I guess when you believe in something badly enough, you find the time. I am fortunate in that I set my own schedule as to when to see my patients or when I attend to my Supervisory duties. I work as much or a little as I like depending on requirements with my horses. That helps quite a bit. I make sure I spend all my spare time with my herd. It's the most satisfying, relaxing thing in the world.

Congo is thought to be one of the most influential Spanish stallions in Spain. His prepotency influenced a large percentage of Arabians bred.

Congo was foaled in 1941 at La Cascajara, the ranch of Don Jose Maria Ybarra, one of Spain’s preeminent breeders. (Senior Ybarra gave us Gandhy and Tabal, also.) Congo’s sire was Illustre, son of Seanderich, a proud Saklawi imported into Spain in 1908 who founded one of the two principal lines pervasive in Spanish breeding today. It has been said to the point of cliché that Seanderich offspring produce true to type even after six generations. Today, Seanderich offspring predominate in numbers. Perhaps as important as his prepotency are the desert attributes preserved through his Spanish Arabian descendants – speed, stamina, intelligence and courage.

Congo:



He has the distinction of being undefeated as a race horse in Spain, against all breeds.

What do you use on Dream's coat to give him that shine? I could groom my horse for hours and she wouldn't shine like that.

It's all internal. He gets minimal grooming as he just rarely seems to need much and I don't believe in bathing with soap very often- strips the oils. His mane and tail are crazy-thick and stays relatively un-matted.
He has a naturally fine, shiny coat, but I use a non-corn based feed (Tribute) a 14/8- that has balanced Omega 3 and 6. He also gets freshly ground flax 3-4 times a week, and 1/2 bucket soaked alfalfa/oat cubes since he's in a growthy stage. And hay, of course. I incorporate fresh fruit 3-4 times a week too.

I do believe that feed gives all my horses a nice shine.

Ellie is on a lower protein-Tribute- 12/6 and this is her winter coat-
