    They will probably be testing those wings pretty soon. You will see them doing test flights. Wow 2 horses I would love to have horses but I live in the city and I'm pushing it here with my ducks and chickens.

    I'm showing this to Robbie. I knew there had to be an easier way of posting pics. I hope he can show me this way because I think I can handle that. Thanks so much.

    They are beautiful. The drake will soon have that green color on his head. It's been so long since we had a mallard. He was our very first duck. It seemed like overnight he changed colors. They look so happy and content. I wish our grass looked like that. [​IMG] Thanks so much for posting their pics and telling us their names.

    Thanks Patty. These are my first ducks :)
    I ride the paint, Hawk. He is 8 and very broke to ride. The buckskin, Maverick, is only 3 and I have to finish breaking him to ride. I have had him since he was a year old, he is my baby. Horses grow until they are 5 or 6. But 3 is a good age to break them to ride. Hawk I got 4 months ago. They love each other, it's wonderful.

    Wow, you have beautiful non-human family members!

    Patty, I literally laughed out loud when you said you slid off the back of the horse when you tried to ride. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] As long as the horse walks real slow and goes in a straight line I'm an excellant rider. My hubbie can ride bareback with no saddle. His grandpa had an old retired circus horse and hubbie would get him to do all of his tricks. Now that's been way back we were in our teens then. I even had a saddle when I would slide off the back of the horse.

    LOL...ohmygersh, Patty, you crack me up!! Hmm, wouldn't think you could slide off if you were on a saddle. Now I'm back to being too scared to ride a horse and here I was thinking that I'd like to try it someday. Of course, if I did ride a horse, I'd probably desperately want my own.
