Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Kid broke - short and barely broke, great horse for those that are small and bounce easily.

Parelli level __- Not broke to saddle but willing to run around a round pen till you think you have accomplished something (no offense to parelli folks intended)

great conformation - Its pretty but may kill you...

Halter bred - unable to perform the job it was originally created to perform due to selective breeding for breed improvement.

Jumping prospect - Not enough work has been put into flatwork, but horse can be steered around a course with variable success, depending on how willing to risk with their lives the rider is. Has been seen jumping over pasture fences and running away at a hysterical speed.

Dressage prospect - After a short-lived career of being steered around a course with variable success, horse has managed to become lame on all fours and thus condemned to running around an arena at a hysterical speed.

Kids/Lesson prospect - After careers of being steered around a course or an arena with variable success, horse is now lame on all fours and the tail, refuses to move faster than at a walk and has devoted his life to debating with his rider whether he is going to let himself being ridden that day or not. At times, he will remember his youthful dreams and pursuit them at a hysterical speed, with the rider flapping in the wind somewhere by the cantle.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

This is great.

Great Kid Prospect!- nice enough, but incredibly stupid. May have his identity confused with a Labrador puppy. Chewing, bouncing, licking, and attention span included.

(I got one of those now... Sigh... Such a nice fella, really. Just nothing going on upstairs)

Edit... No, he's not owned by a child.

Well balanced = Ugly all over.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Loads of spunk- will run to his food bowl
mature-horse over 20 years of age
beautifully marked-has some sort of stripe, spot, or snip

Or the famous one that I had a friend of a friend call me on late last joke...The guy calls me and say "Are you interested in a pony?" I say "sure, how old?" He says "I don't know, but it wandered up into my field where I put out my deer corn and it keeps chasing away the deer" I ask "can you send me a picture?" He does...of a rogue donkey!!! Needless to say, my husband and I went out there on two different weekends to try and catch the "pony" cause they guy said he was going to have to shot it for scaring off the deer. First weekend, we never found it, Second weekend, we found it, but it took off when we were 50 yards from it and jumped over the fence into the cattle farm that was for sale and we lost it. We walked through the property of the cattle farm during hunting season only to find out that they had about 6 deer stand over the field, all manned...the overseer of the property came out and told us that the donkey had been there for over 4 years and no one has ever been able to catch it, no one knows where it came from, and that it just showed up one day. We gave up after that, and I never did ask what happened to the donkey, cause I don't want to know.

So, I guess I could add
Pony-resembles something horse like but smaller.

Nice pleasure horse- horrid confo, no training, and to ugly for the show pen...but can plod all day on the trail.

Mouthy- teeth of a shark. Has already bit numerous people taking hefty chunks out of their body.

A little hot- completely insane, (if a stud he only thinks with his OTHER BRAIN) takes four people to walk to from pasture.
