    Just wanted to know if anyone here has some horses! I am a BIG horse and chicken lover. Horses are most of my life tho. I have been training horses since i was a little girl. Here is a pic of my 3 year old registered quarter horse buckskin mare. I trained her from the ground up! Tell me about your special animals share some pics too!

    She is very pretty.

    We only have 2 horses, chickens and dogs.

    I have just the one horse of my own. Harry a 20 year old thoroughbred who has owned me for nearly 14 years now :D
    We are happy hackers who don't do anything fancy as he enjoys the quiet life and always has done since he finished racing. He does like getting muddy though!

    Harry is beautiful!

    So cute to see his colorful wardrobe...Our weather is way too hot year round for the need for the blankets/jackets.

    He is a doy...what boy doesn't love the mud???[​IMG]

    I don't have any horses but I take lessons and ride an amazing Morab gelding, Mack. We love nice long trail rides and he has an amazing, smooth gaits. We mostly enjoy long rides through the countryside occasionally jumping a log or two and sometimes a small stream if we find a nice one.

    Thank you Kiki :D Yep he has a better wardrobe than me! :lol: He gets the odd day in summer out naked but the flies and midges are a nightmare so he generally has a fly rug on when it's warm. With being a thoroughbred his skin does not take much setting off. That's boy's for you!
    Sounds fantastic and he sure is lovely :highfive:

    That's a good looking horse. I love to go bare back riding with Lexi, it takes some leg muscles tho!
