This is gonna be complicated... ^^; I'll try to condense it tho...

My horse's show/reg name is: Brennan's Magic and Tanner Hutch
But I call her: Magic, Magic Melody, Lover, Magi-carp, Mag-lite and Tanner, Tan-Tan
She is this old: 11 years and 15 years
Her favorite thing to do is: Eat and pick on 2-Pak while he's tied up; Run like a racehorse, whatever I *don't* want her to do.
She looks great in: a plastic, dirt-free bubble, the color red. (both)
Her favorite snack is: Peppermint-flavored horse cookies (both)
I show on her: Western Pleasure-type classes, gymkana; Nothing, yet.
She is this color: Fleabitten Grey... or white. Depends how technical you want to get.
And has this marking(s): Star, and a sock; Star/stripe/snip, two socks (Don't quote me on that. )
She is this tall: Around 15 hands... Magic is slightly taller.
She is good on the trails: For the most part...
She is best friends with: Eachother. Cut the umbilical cord already, you two!
She likes it best when I: Scratch her ears, under her chin, and massage her spine; Feed her out of her own private bucket, outside of the pasture, and sneak in a sugar cube or two.
She will do this all day, if I let her: Eat, eat, and eat some more!
She is most comfortable around these people: Most anyone; mostly just me.
She does not like: Other mares in heat, knocking over a barrel, 2-Pak (as long as he can't fight back); going slow, not being allowed to go around the barrels, the paint on our horse trailer
She wears this style of tack: Western/Barrel racing saddles. Magic's is a Circle Y, Tanner's is American Saddlery.
She would be good with large quantities of other horses: Just so long as her other half is there, they could care less.
On a scale of 1-10, my horse is friendly with strangers at this number: 9, 6
She will spook at: People that walk out of the space between the truck and trailer, the bleachers at the local arena if the sun glints off them, soda pop machines (her newest fear); Most everything you find on a trail and not in the arena or pasture.
She would not do well in this type of show: Halter. She doesn't seem to understand why she's in an arena without someone on her back. ; Right now? Most anything. In the future, anything that requires her to go slow.
She is my best friend: True, on both counts!

------------------------------------------------------------------

My horse's show name is: Thievery and Prince Dante
But I call him: Bandit and Dante
He is this old: 3 years and 2 years
His favorite thing to do is: Show off; Be sneaky, untie things, open gates, lock his older brother in the horse trailer
He looks great in: Navy Blue or Green (both)
His favorite snack is: Ice Cream; anything that fits in his mouth
I show on him: Halter classes (both)
He is this color: Sorrel, and Dante has a hint of a flaxen mane/tail.
And has this marking(s): quarter-moon-shaped star, a sock; half-moon-shaped star, 2 socks
He is this tall: 12-13hh
He is good on the trails: When he's being ponied, yes; not sure
He is best friends with: Eachother, 2-Pak
He likes it best when I: Give him something interesting and new to play with or do (both)
He will do this all day, if I let him: Play! (both)
He is most comfortable around these people: Me! (They won't let many other people handle them.)
He does not like: Having nothing to do, doing the same thing every day.
He wears this style of tack: A $50 harness I got at some farm auction; nothing besides his halter and lead.
He would be good with large quantities of other horses: As long as they play with them!
On a scale of 1-10, my horse is friendly with strangers at this number: 10, until that stranger tries to catch or lead them. Then it's more like 3.
He will spook at: Nothing I've found yet; cattle guards
He would not do well in this type of show: Dressage; Dressage and Trail (he'd have to chew on all of the obstacles! XD)
He is my best friend: Yup~!

--------------------------------------------

My horse's show name is: Double Trouble and Rubaiyate
But I call him/her: 2-Pak, Dio (Italian for 'God'), Doubles, Dude, Meevers; Ruby, Pretty, Lover

He/she looks great in: Blues and greens; almost any color except brown
His/her favorite snack is: Jolly Ranchers! ; Sugar Cubes, honey and peanut butter
I show on him/her: Nothing, though I wish I could show him in halter. ; The girl who is showing her shows her in Western Pleasure-type classes, halter, and the occasional plug or flag race
He/she is this color: Blood bay; Sorrel
And has this marking(s): Star; two socks, star/stripe/snip
He/she is this tall: 16hh; 14hh
He/she is good on the trails: Both of them are awesome on trails!
He/she is best friends with: Bandit and Dante; Dante and Magic
He/she likes it best when I: Feed him and brush him with *his* rubber curry; Brush her out.
He/she will do this all day, if I let him/her: Eat, sleep and be lazy! (both)
He/she is most comfortable around these people: Me; Anyone who doesn't get too pushy, likes kids.
He/she does not like: Other people riding him, being alone in the trailer, working harder than he absolutely has to; Hard work, people that are heavy-handed, being pregnant, apples and carrots
He/she wears this style of tack: Western trail saddles -- both American Saddlery.
He/she would be good with large quantities of other horses: Yes; Maybe
On a scale of 1-10, my horse is friendly with strangers at this number: 10 (both)
He/she will spook at: too many things to list; dead raccoons, flatbed trailers, pheasents
He/she would not do well in this type of show: Anything requiring grace; barrels and poles (she doesn't understand why she has to go *around* them when she can just push them out of her way!)
He/she is my best friend: Yup! (both)


Phew! Hope you followed that mess!
