This is Dandy's Little Jewel, a.k.a Dandy. I posted some pics of her in the "Horse Pictures Sec." I just purchased her in February. Dandy is a 7yr. old, 16.2H, Appendix QH mare. Dandy has had extensive training in the Western classes. So this year we will be doing Western and next year (really this fall) we will begin English and Jumping.
Here's a little funny story about her. When I go into feed in the mornings. I give everyone there breakfast and grain. I then go back and clean their corrals and take off their blankets and put on their fly sheets. After removing their blankets, I usually take a moment to give them a scratch in their favorite spot. Dandy loves to be scratched just behind her withers along her back bone. She will follow me around and stand where ever I am trying to scoop up poop until I scratch her. Well I didn't have time the other morning, so I kept ignoring her and asking her to move so I could scoop poop. When I went to put her fly sheet on and was bent over at the waist standing infront of her buckling the front straps, she gave me a scratch on the back with her lip and then nipped me. I guess she was telling me this is what I want you to do and she reinforced her suggestion with a little nip.
Not sure. I don't see Impressive Dandy in her pedigree, she's out of Tee J Dandy Jack and Stan's Colleen. I know when I have searched for stallions with the Jackie Bee breeding, that most of them are located in Texas.
I love my quarter horse! ... and I never thought I would ever say that!
My first (and only other) horse was a National Show Horse (1/2 arab 1/2 saddlebred) and he looked like a tall, sleek arabian. I've always been an English rider and had friends that did cutting/reigning on their quarter horses and would mock-tease them.
Now, as fate would have it, I have a wonderful palomino quarter horse who is as muscular and big-boned as they come (at least thats what everyone around the barn tells me) and I just love him to death!
Woo, I love QH's. I can't say they're my #1 favourite because I have too many, but they are definitely in my top 10. Here's Ricky aka Maverick aka Rickster aka Hairy Butt Fur Pony. His registered name is Deposition, he's by Statement out of Delightfully Noble. He's strongly halter bred, but is the ugliest horse you'll ever buy. He's got horrible knees, and will never be a halter horse, but he'd make a **** good pleasure/PC horse. I love him all the same, but he is up for sale.
That photo shows his horrible knees and his crazy owner
That would've been a good photo if he didn't decide to stand up and do a pee.
this is my club. i'd take a QH over anything else. true, mine now is an appy, however he was my first and he's about like a QH. and one of the horses i'm riding for this gal ain't hers, but i may try to buy him because, well, he's pure cow pony. except he's got way too much energy like my wife's TB... don't quite make sense of that one!
