Can you post some pictures? Would love to see her & Bella too
The first 2 are of Bella. She is a purebred Arabian. Her daddy is ZT Ali baba. She is my seasoned endurance horse. She was a race horse in her younger years and when she retired from that I put her to work in Endurance. She loves it. In December she got 1st place in her first 75 mile ride. And the last 3 are Rossi. My half Arabian half Saddlebred mare. I just bought her so she will be doing her 1st ride ever in Febuary. It seems now that the Arab/Saddlebred cross is being seen more and more. It is such a great cross. You should definitely keep your eyes open for one! We have 2 and I love them riding them as much as my purebreds!

My Arab/Saddlebred cross is only 4 and she is already 15.1 H. So if you are looking for some leg, this cross will get you some. Our other Arab/Saddlebred mare is 7 and close to 16 H. And she is actually related to Rossi. We did not even realize it till I got Rossi. I will have to post pictures of Dakari so you can see if you see any similarities between them!

Ok so this is Dakari. Rossi's daddy is Dakari's grandfather.

Becca's boyfriend & dad came over...He tried to pull me out with his truck and nearly got stuck too! Then he changed to a hand winch hooked to the big maple and I am unstuck!! Yipee!

I am once again glad I have a Brenderup, cause the first thing we did was unhook it from the truck and push it by hand under the carport. You can't do that with most trailers!

I am not driving back there again until I have some concrete down or the ground dries up. We are getting all that rain Denise had for the next few days.

ASAP I am getting a winch on the from of that truck, I have learnt my lesson!

WOW Leyna those are some beautiful horses you have! I love the looks of Rossi especially, she is just perfect in every way! I do not really see the similarities between Rossi & Dakari, except maybe the head? Rossi looks more compact built, Dakari more lean...both stunningly gorgeous!

It has been so nasty and wet here in Kentucky, I haven't had a chance to ride at all. It was nice out today for most of the day, though it was cold, but I had to stay inside and make candles all day. I wish I could have at least went out for an hour! By the time I am finally able to ride, all three horses are going to be so fresh, I wont be able to handle them. That Arabian of mine -shew, forget about it. I might have to lounge him for a couple hours to burn out some of that energy before even thinking about getting up on him.

Sorry you got the truck stuck. OMG that bites. Brenderups are nice for moving around easy and I am going to look into a small tack box for the tongue area. Just something to put my brushes/etc in. They all fit right now but OMG it is is a stuffed sausage in there.

Lenya - your horses are gorgeous!!! Love them!

AnitaAnne- I'm glad you got out. I normally go out on my own because there aren't many people who can handle the greener horses and their behavior on the trails. Not all of them are marked so it's quite easy for me to get lost. I'm also glad you got your trailer out. Mine's stuck in the mud till the next ground freeze when I can get it out and lay down something underneath it. Yay mud!

2 horses lost shoes today when we were changing paddocks to keep them out of the more suck-y mud. We duck taped them up till the farrier comes out in a few days. There was a trail day planned for the kids at the barn so I was left alone doing chores while they went out. There was tons of work to do and it was so much easier without children and horses strewn about the barn.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Yea, I really don't see any similarities in them either. But the way they act is almost the same! Lol. And thank you! I really like Rossi. Back in December 2011, my mare Leyna broke her leg in the pasture and I found her when she did not come up with the other horses for breakfast. It devestated me. I kind of lost my passion for horses. Of course I still rode, but I did not have the passion about it after Leyna broke her leg and had to be put down. Leyna and me had an awesome bond and I have not found that kind of bond with any other horse, but I feel like I could have that kind of bond with Rossi.
