Is it okay that I am in love? =]

I just love Bear so much. He makes me so happy and even when he pins his ears and gets mean, he still makes me smile. He is so silly and loveable. As I always tell people, he is just like a polar bear, super cute and cuddly, but really quite dangerous, but deep down, he has a kind heart.
In my picture, I am up on my back porch, and Bear is standing on the ground, with his head up on the rail. That is one of his favorite things to do, it is super cute! =]

So, I want to hear about your and your horse! Share pictures. Make us smile, laugh, cry, just share. Share as many pictures are you want, type a page long post about your horse and you, just let us know how much you love your horse!

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.

Very cute. If I loved as many boys as I love horses I'd be in trouble lol.

I love my mare, shes really respectful on the ground and shes just wonderful. My baby is crazy, but how could you not love a fuzzy little pony? I think my boyfriend knows it, but if it was him or the horses, i would choose the horses. I mean I love him to death, but he doesnt have a soft little muzzle and he dosent nicker when I come to feed him lol.

Yeah, me too.... ;]

I would choose my horses over boys any day! I love Bear's droopy lip, and his snarled nose when he pins his ears. I also love his velvet nose. That was the first thing I fell in love with about Bear, is his velvet nose. I remember everything about the first time I met him. Watching him hide in his stall, his cuts and scars, how angery he was, but I just had this gut feeling that I would stop riding if I didnt get him, or that I would just keep on leasing and never settle down with a horse. <3 him to death!

Share pictures people! =]

Aww! Bear is SUPER cute! I love that picture

Spirit's my baby and my first horse. We got him from a dude ranch where they loved him to death, but he was very unhappy there and wasn't getting fed enough. He's taught me so much just about life in general. Never thought I could love a horse as much as I love him, I mean, I love horses, but he just makes me smile. Everytime I ride another horse I come off with a better apreciation for him. He's an angel on the ground and so calm for being so young . . . anyways, here he is! Sorry for the pics being so big

This is my boy who I am riding now, Diesel. I rode him a lot this summer and fell in love. :) He is amazing both on the ground and under saddle, but has a few weird quirks. He almost never gets his head straight out in front of him, though he is getting better, and he hates getting close to the fence. He tends to be lazy but has amazing transitions. He isn't such a great jumper but we've got months to work on it :)
I have got no pictures of me with him.. but just got a new camera so they will be here soon. :) Here are pics of him with Kailey, who leased him last year..



This is my baby, Roger and I!! I was helping retrain him this year, for cantering and jumping. His walk trot is totally solid, but he hasn't been cantered by anyone but me in a while. Picture overload, sorry haha :)

I love to hear about everyone's horses :) Especially when they are so loved hehe

I have two amazing "men" in my life at the moment and I couldn't be any happier.

First is Fortora Farms Grey Arrow (Arrow). He is my 20 month old Registered Mini Colt. I always wanted a mini but my dad said they wouldn't stay in our fence (bad experiances with ponies getting out. They are like little houdini's lol), so I gave up asking him for one. Then one day my uncle called and asked if I wanted to buy his colt from him ( now I usually take in rescues and so that what I thought I was getting so wild crazy pony), that he couldn't be in the field with his girlfriends horses because they were to high strung and were scared of him and he thought they might hurt Arrow. He had been tied out like a goat because they were afraid what her horses might do to him so when I heard all this I said bring him to me. I had to pay $175 for him and when my uncle led him off the trailer it was love at first sight! He was so pretty and just as sweet as could be. We are now conjoined at the him-head LOL He learns so fast and is just the sweetest "horse" I have ever owned. I will train him to be a cart horse when he is older and a therapy horse. He's so special to me for other reasons as well. My mom has terminal cancer (in her brain) and if you were to talk to her now you would think she was mentally handicapped as she can't talk well some days and sometimes can't remember anything. But she was a very dedicated rider before she got cancer and loved horses. When they told her she couldn't ride anymore it broke her heart and it is so unsafe for her to even be around the horses anymore that she can't go near them. One day I had Arrow out and we have a 7 foot ramp on our front porch for her wheelchairs and things. Well I got the bright idea to lead him up the porch (because she had came out there to sit and wanted to come down to pet him and I didn't want her to fall), I took him right up to her and I have taught him to lay down so when we got up there to her I had him lay down and she was able to safetly (or more safetly anyways) pet him and give him "loves". It was the cutest thing and she was soooo happy I thought my heart would melt. So he will always hold a special place in my heart :) So this got so long I just really wanted to let you know how I feel for this little bundle of fur LOL *I started tearing up writting this if that tells you anything*









Will post about my other horse in a moment.

My next "man" I have only had for two weeks but it is going great. He was abused at some point in his life and at first didn't want anything to do with me but once he figured out he was getting treats or loved on he is now in your pocket kinda horse. hehe..

His name is Winter Wonderland and he is a 7 year old Morgan/Racking gelding. He is so gentle my 4 year old neice can lead, groom, really do anything with him. He has so much more patience then most 7 year olds I have been around and not spooky of anything. Who knew you could fall in love so fast hehe :)

No, it isn't wrong to be in love, but you do know it's a disease right? Something to do with the horsehair. There is a thread about it somewhere LOL .

I too am in love, but with way too many boys *and even a girl shhh*

Denny is my life and my joy even though I can hardly stand to ride him. He was my first real training project and he is everything I hate in horses; hot, chargy, arrogant, rough riding, and hyper-sensitive......but I couldn't love him more. He quite literally saved my life and my sanity while my parents were going through their divorce (my freshman year in high school no less. Like that's not stressful enough). I cried more than my share of tears into his mane and he would stand and listen for hours when I felt like talking, griping, or dreaming of running away. He would carry me faster than I had ever gone, wherever I wanted to go, and leave all my troubles behind. *wipes eyes, Geez you got me crying now* LOL. I screwed up a lot of things in his training but I wouldn't change one minute of it cause without him, I wouldn't know what I do now. My Dad tells me that he is too young to retire, and maybe he's right. But I think Denny has more than earned it.



Of course I love all my boys and my one girl but Denny will always be my first and my best.
