    Chickens and horses go hand in hand.. Let's see your other farm animals! My specialty is American Saddlebred horses and National Show Horses (the cross between a saddlebred and arabian). I also have a little novelty.. a minny hinny who is the hybrid product of a miniature donkey jennet, and a miniature horse stud. I ride english, specifically competing in local dressage and eventing shows. Here's my herd:

    Shake Rattle N Role (Roley) a Nat'l Show Horse gelding:

    CH Dozen Roses (Rosie) my retired champion saddlebred mare:

    Miss Rose Marie (Honey) my future dressage and eventing showhorse. She's also a saddlebred, actually the daughter of my mare Rosie.

    And the farm favorite, Applesauce Anonymous (Apple) a mini-hinny gelding:

    Let's see your equines!

    I AM SO JEALOUS IT ISNT EVEN FUNNY! I am boarding 3 horses...none of my own. I call this one the Barbie Dream horse. His name is Doc Holiday and he rides like a Cadillac. Your animals are the ones I pine for. My next door neighbor has one but he is lame. Wow Dozen Roses takes my breath away.

    love all of yours... never get tired of "pony" pics.

    Here is me and my gelding "Stretch" Exclusive Grand Titan 16.3 Paint. A true 16.3.... over 50 huntseat points, 10 showmanship points and over 50 halter points.... raised him and will probably be the only horse I never sell

    Silkiebawkbawk I love your horses. I've always adored bay skewbalds. The first thing I noticed about Rosie is the blue eye, which I'm also a fan of, having several sheep, a dog and a gelding with them.

    Here are two of my Shetlands.

    This is my gorgeous new filly and future brood mare, Musselbrough Illona. She'll be 2 in May. I am going to train her to be a pack/cart/riding pony. I was lucky really, having just decided I wanted a bright bay she came up for sale. There aren't many Shetlands of this colour here.

    My lovely gelding Toffee. My aunt had him when she lived in Foula. My cousins and I used to ride Toffee when we were young. She gave him to another islander when she left. This owner didn't trim his hooves and had him on too rich grazing so his hooves ended up in a terrible state. I spoke to the guy and I got to take Toffee and have been trimming his hooves monthly. There is so much improvement already. I can't wait until they've healed so I can get riding him again.
