    Aetna was a rescue & Remmy is my riding horse... but as you can tell from his weight... he hasn't been ridden in quite some time.... [​IMG]

    What a healthy couple of sweeties. I am so thrilled to see them as my friend has a colt that is 3 months old, 500 lbs and is 1/2 Percheron and Appaloosa. Beautiful filly.
    The Appaloosa is her riding horse and her feet and legs were just to small and always splitting even with having shoes and the whole 9 yards. Needless to say, this filly stands to nurse, but she has to drop to one knee!!!! Unreal.
    So I really appreciate you sharing your horses!

    Yes, they are great! And they cross beautifully with TBs, I must say! [​IMG]

    I have an affinity for Drafts. I'm hoping to some day own a Clydesdale or a Shire... maybe both in a perfect world! [​IMG]
