(you asked for it...picture over load!) :)
We purchased a Thoroughbred about a month ago for my daughter to do hunter/jumper events with eventually. He wasn't in riding condition but has now packed on the pounds (he has eaten us out of the house and home, lol)and is heading to her instructors house next weekend so hopefully in the next month she'll be on him. :)

Approx. 4 weeks ago




Taken last week




My daughter on one of the lesson horses that she currently rides

Wow Tammy no doubt he is eating you out of house and home.....what a BIG difference 4 weeks made - he looks really good now. The smile on your young lady's face says it all....she's a very lucky girl! Has she given him a "call" name yet or did he come with one?

Ack! *insanely jealous* Hubby says we can't get horses until I finish vet school. :cry: At least by then, I can find someone to take care of them in exchange for free vet care. :D

Here are my two. Both are rescues. Molly was purchased at auction by a friend and Cisco was found roaming the Kentucky countryside. Both of our horses still live with a friend and will be coming to live with us as soon as our barn/pasture project is finished (hopefully this summer).

Molly (Belgian-Haflinger X mare) - trained for trail riding and pulling anything.


Here she is pulling a cart:


Cisco (3-year old Quarterhorse gelding) - to be trained soon for trail riding. Note the huge gash in Cisco's leg. This pic was taken when I first met him and the gash was from a barbed-wire fence. Its almost totally healed now.

I have a friend who has a Missouri Fox Trotter. I love him. Great trail riding horses, very docile, a real pleasure. When I was a kid I had high drive horses, but sure don't have the patience or energy for them anymore!

I think that's what we may get when I am in the market for a horse or three. :D I always wanted a Belgian draft as a trail horse though...and it's hard to beat a nice paint and/or quarter horse.

Come on Maren, We all know the American Quarter Horse is the Malinois of the horse world. If we have beat the belgians on animals, it is DEFINATELY in the horse world. Quarter Horses = most versatile, hardest working, multi-tasked horse on the market, A N D it's MADE IN THE U. S. A.;) :smile: :smile:

Can't argue there, Chris. I first learned to ride on a little Appy appropriated named Spot. :roll: But then I moved on to a nice quarter horse named Chiquita. Unfortunately, I only had just a few short years of riding lessons back in late elementary and early middle school as it got too expensive . But my old riding instructor was an old Army sarge who used to be George Patton's quarter master. :cool: If I had any free time whatsoever (and money!), I'd start riding lessons again.

Steve, a friend of a friend of mine had a really really nice grey Arabian that we used in our wedding photos. He was a really nice horse, but then again, he was 25 years old. Here is two of my favorites done at the university (we got married on the on campus chapel a few blocks away).

--->raises hands waving violently<---- Okay, we will take care of your future horse(s) in exchange for free vet care! We'll just have to work out the logistics some how, LOL.
Your wedding pictures are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! :)

Kadi, very nice looking mare!
