Hello All! I've been reading and trying to get to know a little about everyone here and this seems like a wonderful forum for information, stories, and more. My name is Lynda and I own an 8 yr old qh named Rocket. I have had him since he was 3 and the previous owner could no longer handle him because they were not horse knowledgeable and he figured that out :lol::lol: He and I have an unbreakable bond and I would give my life for him if you know what I mean. He lives at my friends house with 8 other horses and is fat and happy. We mostly trail ride, but have been looking into the cross country circuit as well as investigating the mounted search and rescue. I have been involved with horses since I was 5 and they are my passion. I've owned several and began with a standardbred which was rescued from the meat truck. It has been my journey to take the stb's in and retrain them for riding then find them good homes. I have been successful with 3 so far and am on the lookout for another at this time. My husband is my guinea pig and he loves the stb's and their great temperments. We just found a home for our 10 year old appendix qh gelding that we rescued. He was approx 500 pounds under weight when we found him. Now he lives with a man who dotes on him hand and hoof lol. Long story that I will get into more later. Looking forward to meeting all of you and hopefully I can bring some knowledge and be able to help someone with a question here and there!
