    I have a 27 year old appaloosa mare that had a severe episode of laminitis 15 years ago. The horse was given to me for fear it would be lame and end up going to slaughter. She doesn't do well barefoot, but with shoes (I'm sure boots would be ok too) she is completely sound. She is lazy, but then again, she is ancient. She makes a good horse for new riders and I am glad that I have her.

    Nancy, I hope your horse does well too.

    I thought y'all'd (yes, that is a southern word!) get a kick out of this picture. I was about 6 months old. My mom said I wasn't the least bit afraid. My brother is 16 months older and he was scrunched up with a worried look on his face. Me...I was ready to hit the trails.

    Any of y'all have a pony pic to share?

    I don't know why I can no longer see photos in the threads....I see avatar pictures.

    I wish I could post the one I have of me at Hermann Park, in a merry-go-round kind of thing, on the horse, of course. My mother is wearing a hat, and a dress, and heels, and gloves. At the park. I am a slacker. I never wore heels and gloves to the park.

    I have to go get Debbie Belle today from my friends, before I end up with a huge board bill. I know I have said this, but I HATE having horses on the market!
    The lovely people that we rushed over there to meet last Sunday said they would talk it over and call in a couple of days....DH called them on Wednesday, and had to leave a message, with no call back. Well, good luck to them finding another horse that their 4 screaming kids won't TERRIFY.

    I REALLLY need to get out and ride, don't I ????

    I walked to the mailbox yesterday, and ALL the horses (yes, including my "so LAME, I can't stand up" filly RAN after me, all the way to the road, and BACK...whatever WAS wrong with her, it ain't wrong now....DRAMA QUEEN.

    Y'all'd....I LOVE it, Denise! I actually stooped so low as to watch Sugar Bear and June's commitment ceremony on Honey Boo-Boo last night!! No wonder I can't sleep!!

    Have a Good Friday, everyone!!

    Just a heads up, I refreshed the page and the picture showed up.

    I don't have any pony pics, but do have the pic of little Jessa in about the same pose as Denise.

    Hahahahaha Nancy was your mom from Boston? My bff as a kid had a mom that was from Boston. She said automobile because we would die laughing when she said caaahhhhhh. She always had on little heels and pearls. Loved her so!!! Dig out that picture chickie and post it. We all need to see where we started from. I wish my mom had taken pictures of us on our little Shetland ponies when I was 5. We had 3, a pinto named Molly (mine) a little smokey black named Penny and a white one Snowball. I barely remember them now but I thought they were the bomb.

    Nancy, glad to hear your filly was just being a drama queen that is too funny. Tell her she better watch that crap...someone is going to believe her and send her over the rainbow bridge if she cries wolf again

    Y'all'd yep, that is a good word. Y'all'd better post some pictures!

    Roady, that picture is precious!! She looks like a happy camper! I couldn't see my own picture last night but it finally showed up this morning. I often have to refresh or restart my computer to see pictures.

    Dawn, could you have been any cuter? You are ready to take those reins and go right then!!! Love the one with you and the foal!! Precious!

    I sadly didn't get to grow up with or even really around horses. I made due with the annual June fair at my elementary school. Every year they brought out some ponies and one full size horse for rides. I remember I insisted that I had to ride the horse and refused to get on any pony. My Dad would wait patiently in line with me until the horse came up and then off I'd go. Over and over and over again.... I don't think I ever went on any of the other rides or games we had at the fair, all I saw were the horses.

    Fast forward to 2009, and my boyfriend got me 4 riding lessons for my birthday at a local farm. Five years later and I now own 2 horses and my lesson instructor is now one of my best friends and I keep my horses at her farm. If my boyfriend ever complains about my horsey habits I just get to tell him it's all his fault for getting me those lessons.

    Hoping to get some good trail rides in this weekend!

    I think a good ride would do you a lot of good.....I'm so happy the Drama Queen is just that...that's great news......what a miraculous recovery.....literally one step away from the needle and now she's fine.....

    Hope you have a great weekend too....it's going to be cold again this weekend in Dixie...

    The horses got new shoes today. We will ride tomorrow if we don't wimp out from the cold.
