    Awsome animals! I really like the Cochin cross, but all of them are fantastic. I thought this thread wasn't going to go anywhere, but the first two people to come on here showed me that good things do come with patience.

    This is My dad's horse Jim widow maker...
    So Jim is a recovering alcoholic... Lol no really a guy my husband works with was giving away a "quarter horse" that was said to be very well broke and ridden everywhere.
    But we went there not expecting my because we nevr believe what people say till we see it ourselves.
    So we should up and Jim was high spirited high stepping and nervous. So dad saddled him up and off they went. Spunk, spunk, spunk, get up and go is all dad said. Dad said he loved this guy and wanted him. I tried to talk dad out of it. My dad is 60 year's old and I didn't want him to get hurt, but dad said he felt a strong bond right away. So we agreed to take him.
    It took up 3 days to get Jim to load a trailer but finally got him on it and took him home. Oh Sorry left this part out. Jim'd then name was red neck. And the guy gave red neck a beer every night... Witch is why I said Jim is a recovering alcoholic.lol. anyway we change all our animals ,Ames when we get t him so dad named him Jim after a favorite childhood horse he had and widow maker because of his spunk. Anyway after about 3 or 4 months of trail ridding and building a relation ship and trust dad and Jim had built an unbreakable bond. We Derek and Jim is quarter horse/tennesee walker... Great smooth gait. And now you can do anyrhingvyou want with Jim. We even have babies ride him now. He turned out to be a great boy!!
    Here he is...

    You are not boring me at all, I mean I made this thread so people can share stories and you are doing exactly what your supposed to, and might I add doing it good. It's weird that someone would give a horse(or any animal) a beer, let alone every night! Did Jim act drunk?;) I smiled when I read about your horses, I have 2 right now, Diego (gelding) is 18 years old and Lakota isn't too far behind. I lost a mare about five years ago that was 29-30, her name was Windy. Diego is Windy's offspring, so part of Windy is still here. Diego's dad was actually a race horse or something like that, but I wasn't around when Diego was born ( I was -1 years old). I look forward to seeing more of your animals. :)

    I love animals as you can tell :) they are amazing. Oh so many stories I can tell... Lol
    No Jim didn't act drunk to much body mass I guess lol. But if we are trail riding and we stop to talk to people if Jim smells a beer He will steal it lol!:) he a ham... Your paint is gourjous! Yes when we lost dolly myb55 year old the vet said her heart was still good and her mind. Her hind legs just finally gave out. It was So hard to make the call to have put down.
    But she was a one in a million pony. I also rescued a 27 year old quarter horse from a horse auction that was to bad of shape to even be run thru the auction. They were going to load him on a dog food truck the next day. I paid 40 dollars and brought him home. (In guarentine for 1 month) he was a walking skeleton, my vet had no idea how he was still alive. We slowly nursed him back to health and he lived for 6 months before he had a massive heart attack do to years of neglect. But his last 6 months he had full belly love, love love love pets and talc!!! He actually laid his head in my lap when he took his last breath! So I was with him to the very end :( I have to stop I'm start I,g to cry just thinking about my boy Cherokee. Anyway he and dolly the 55 year old we best friends :) dollar a hard time going up and down hills and this is no lie. We would watch Cherokee put his head on dollys rump and push her up hills and going down hills he would get beside her and put his weight against her and ease her down the hills. It was amazing to watch. I'll post pics of them later !!!!

    Sweet story! I'm glad you rescued him and made his last months enjoyable. I'll take some pics of my other horse tomorrow, unless I find a picture today, it's dark where I'm at so taking a new one today is out of the question.
