I ride two horses so one for each.

I swear one of them can read my mood like nothing else on this world. She can always tell the days I just want to go and not think about anything and the days where I'm in the mood to just relax and ride along...

The other one always challenges me, but in a good way. She definitely keeps me on my toes and I love it.

My horse can tell my moods to but i think the best thing about her is that she always has a new challenging aspect about her whenever i work with her!

I have two.

Kenzie - Honestly I find just about everything about her to be awesome, but I'm biased. What amazes me the most though is her ability to forgive and trust. With all she's been through she could hate humans with a passion and not be at fault, but instead she's constantly seeking someone to trust, and constantly hoping that whoever's hands she is in, they're going to do the best by her. I don't think I've ever met a sweeter, easier to please filly.

Sour - her work ethic is amazing! She's always game for learning something new, even if she's not particularly happy with me personally. She's also very intelligent and picks things up quickly. I've never had a horse as young as her (5) who I could just let sit for a few weeks at a time, hook her up to the cart, and expect the same horse no matter what until I met her. She's great!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

My mare - she was sent from the heavens above and is perfect in every way. She is loyal and knows I am, too. I treat her like a queen, she returns the treatment in kind 110%. She would be welcome to come inside my house if the rest of the family wouldn't object.

My filly - She learns quickly.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Lucky- Even though she can be antisocial and people-shy, there is a very sweet little girl underneath. Even her nicker is so high-pitched and girly!

Star-She's tough, and has been my best friend. It may sound weird, but she always seems to know when I need emotional support- she's more loyal than most of my human friends.

JC-my best bud. I've had him for 26 of his 28 years and have lived with him longer than any human being. He knows all my secrets and has never told a soul. LOL

Gamble is smart, although sometimes it gets him in trouble.

Este is an excellent mom. Back when we were still breeding all the other mares would be off grazing while Este watched over their foals as well as her own.

Freckles, my go to girl for kids or beginners to ride.

Thunder was the sweetest, best behaved stallion I've ever known. Also passed that disposition on to his foals. Wasn't willing to sell him when we quit breeding so now he's a sweet, well behaved gelding.

Cloud is huge, beautiful and always ready for a hug or three.

TJ, there's only one thing not to like about him and that is he hates being in the trailer. Great to ride though and I can go weeks without riding him then go climb on him with nothing but a halter and lead rope and he'll do anything you ask.

Flash is the brave one. When everyone else in the herd is freaking out about some different in their pasture (downed tree, a piece of trash that has blown into the pasture, etc...), he's the one that goes and checks it out which makes everyone else calm down when they see it's not eating him. LOL

Cutter is my shadow. When I brought him home he was a 2 year old bag of bones that was covered in burrs & lice and full of worms. 3 years later he's still grateful that he has a good home.

The 3 minis are just too cute and so fun to watch.

Jayne wants to please. More than anything, he wants to please, so if it means learning a new skill, motoring down the trail, or learning carrot stretches, he will do it. If you can explain/ask for anything in any way that MIGHT make sense to a horse, he will work to figure out what you're after.
