Me either! Wait til you see the place, they put a bunch of new trails in this year too. I wonder if they will have a live band labor day weekend? They did last year! It was a great time!

we went to the horse auction on friday. and there was a little paso fino mare that was bred to a jack that went for 210$ that we about come home with. and there was a few other horses that went for around 100-200$'s and there was a little 5 month saddlebred filly that went for 50$ that we almost got as well. it's always SO tempting to bring more home.

I'm stealing Willow...just to let you know. I know how bad Indy needs a lesson horse or I'd steal Rain as well but since I have a lesson horse or two I guess I can let this one go =P.

P.S-You're trail riding in York? As in York, Pa or York, Indiana? Cuz if it's York, Pa I'm so there!

HAHA! You can have her for a bit Nittany as long as you bring her back without her trailer park attitude LOL! Indy's friend has started to call her Roseanne LMAO!

I rode her last night for over an hour. She will give you a TON of crap including bucks for the first 10 minutes or so but then she's great with a few exceptions. 1 - if someone gets too close. She postures and I'm certain she would kick if I didn't kick the bejesus out of her first.
2 - she is IMPATIENT. If you make her stop for more than 10 seconds, she tries to take off anyways or will paw or just otherwise be a donkey LOL
3 - When trotting at a good clip, she will intentionally go sideways because she knows with her fattiness, her body will go one way but her fat rolls (and rider included) will go the other way.
4 - She HATES to be left behind. I stopped her and made her wait for the others toward the end of the ride and the little butt tried to grab the bit and go.

Rain is just - PURE COMPLETE AWESOMENESS! I am soooo serious! Nat rode her English last night and Rain carried herself completely different than what she does in Western! I TRULY lucked out with this girl! She is worth 10x what I paid! I <3 her! I will post more pics soon!

<--So jealous of Rain!

From everything I have heard about Haffies...her testing and being 'bratty' its kind of a breed charactaristic. Our Teddy-Bear is a royal pain. When he doesnt want to turn...he wont. To all of you who are on the boat of 'make him turn' come on out! Teddy LOVES fresh meat. He is a sweet pony and will do most anything you ask of him but once he is set on NOT doing something...your up a creek. Hes totally bombproof and super adorable...just a sh*t. Mouthy, lippy, and pushy to boot. Sounds like, if Willow would be interested, she has a life-mate here!

I would love to see Rain being ridden english. I betcha she is like my first horse...if you know how to ask...she knows how to do it.

That is what Rain appears to be. EVERYTHING Indy has asked of her, including a canter last night!!, she has happily obliged. Indy's 6yr old son hopped on her and rode her by himself as well. I've also added a second "flashproof" horse to my crew! Indy's neighbor did the SAME thing that I did and hooked her shirt around the saddle horn while dismounting! Rider came down, shirt stayed up! And Rain politely turned her head as if to say "Do Do Dooo... Not paying attention to you!" LOL!!!

I have yet to find a fault with Rain. She loads well, stands well for Indy when being trimmed (for the most part), stands for being bathed, doesn't spook, trots with just a simple kissing noise, open her mouth for the bit instead of fighting it, stands quietly while mounting and tacking, etc etc etc. You get my point! I truly LOVE this horse!

Once I am back in the market for another horse...I wont stop til I find one like that. I've had a streak of 10 'project' horses that all turned out well...but in the end...I still miss my first horse. I know there is another one out there (I think there might be one on craigslist right now...im just broke! LOL) I will find that horse when I have money! What I wouldnt give to go out on a trail ride and not have to constantly worry!
