Exclamation Newbie

Hi all,

My name is Robin and I adopted my first horse, Dallas. He is a 14 year old 15.3hh QH... with navicular. I knew his limitations when I adopted him. It's been a lifelong dream to have a horse, not for the ring, just to enjoy as a pet, trails and light riding. He is a sweetheart. We are from Long Island.

I have 4 ex retired racing greyhounds and have been a greyhound owner for 12 years. I recently lost 2- bringing my pack down to 4.

Hope to learn a lot from the forum as I did when I first adopted my greyhounds years ago from the greyhound forums!

Nice to "meet" you.

Robin

Welcome to the forum. There is so much information here and knowledgeable people willing to give advice to any questions you have and just talk about horses.
It would be awesome to see pics of your boy.

There will be only one of you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.

Thanks!

Thank you for the welcome. It would be awesome for me to figure out how to post pics! Do I need a photobucket account or something similar?

Ah yes, the infamous photobucket icon.

You can hit Go Advanced on your replies, and scroll down to manage attachments, and upload here to HorseForums. Alternatively, you can upload them to your album in your home, copy the URL it provides you, complete with bb coding for image tags, and paste it right into your post.

And pictures are almost a requirement here. ;) Everyone wants to see!

No, we do not see any pictures from photobucket anymore...that is unless you pay them that ridiculous fee to unlock your pictures.

Try the suggested from AtokaGhosthorse to post....

So, Hi Robin...WELCOME to the forum.
Glad to have you with us.

I use to live on Long Island...
So knowing the island...where are you? North shore, south shore, east end, Nassau County...???

I see now South Huntington....
Not far away...Patchogue.

So, do you have your horse home or do you board?
If boarding what farm?
So many places today are gone...now homes.
Huntington, Northport and that whole area used to be so many horse farms, show places and parks with trails...

I can't wait to see pictures...
I miss the "look" of the island...

He's a gorgeous boy! Welcome to the forum

For those who can't get it to work (I kinda have a trick to see them without paying, but don't know if it would work on every computer)

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.
