I'll be honest, I'm terrible at keeping blogs and journals up to date; mostly due to the fact that between work, the horses, and working on my own little creative writing projects. I will try my best to keep posting here, but bare with me if I don't post daily.
This will be Iris' growing up thread, and I'll probably put anything new with Chloe and Maddie here as well, but it will mostly be pictures and updates of Iris.
For anyone who hasn't seen Maddie's thread here it is: https://www.horseforum.com/stallions...thread-802169/
I guess to begin;
Iris is about 3/4 Quarter Horse with French Canadian and Percheron mixed in from her mother's side. The stallion is a Registered Quarter Horse with Doc Bar and Poco Bueno lines.
She's going to be a trail horse and maybe do a few open shows if I'm interested in that down the road (I'm not a big horse show person). I wanted something with a great mind and conformation to do trail riding that's not so laid back (Hills, rocky terrain, water/mud) and I think I got all of that with her (especially the brain). She's super smart, curious and has a slight sassy attitude. All in all, I got exactly what I wanted in looks, colour and mind.
I will have pictures to add to this hopefully tonight, but i probably won't post anything for a few days (12 hour work shifts Monday and Tuesday).
