I am 19yrs old. I own a Paint Horse mare infoal (foal is FOR SALE IN UTERO!, a pony gelding who is FOR SALE!, Falabella gelding & stallion (Falabella mare coming soon!). I show my horses (and horses for other people) in English, Driving, and Halter classes. I love Falabellas and Miniature Horses. I also love Paint Horses, and have a huge interest in endangered breeds.
I have been a youth leader in the Haldimand 4H Miniature Horse Club for 5 years and have helped in promoting both Miniature Horses and 4H at the CNE for the past 2 years.
I now have a Horse Body Clipping Service for the Niaraga and Haldimand area, called New Design Horse Clipping. I have 7 years experience in clipping, 5 of those years were clipping show horses all summer. Clipping is a passion of mine; arabian style miniature show clipping is my specialty. I can also do a wide variety of traditional European style clips. I can clip all horses from Minis to Drafts! Please feel free to email me for more information, prices, and pictures: firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried to send you some pictures of all my horses. Wayne is in there too, but he's pretty dirty. Gray overo with sorrel markings. My granddaughter is riding him in 2 photos. Let me know if you get the pics.
I was delighted to get your message about Miss Faxed. Wayne (Faxaholic) is still my favourite horse, though his show days are long since over. My 2 grandkids fight over who will get to ride him. He loved Trail classes when he was showing, and now we ride him through forest trails and everything he learned as a show horse, he uses as a trail horse.
I think that mgiht work she already has a really long one but i can give it a try when i clip her.
I will wash and clip her next weekend so i will see how she looks washed and then see what i will do i will take a pic and upload it so u can see wat it looks like.
She dosent really rub she just sticks her head thru the fence and she dosent rub on anything else. She also dose it in her stable and she goes into different paddocks but i will try that. Im not allowed to braid or band her mand (miniature horse showing rules here) so not sure what to do i have thought about putting fake hair or something iin but not sure how to do it so its not obvious.
Thanks i will give that a try.
My young mare keeps sticking her head thru the fence and now she dosent have much mane left do you know of anything i can do so she dosent look stupid as i have a show in 2 weeks????
Thanks for ur help i will give it a try tonight.
you asked a question months ago on my Buckskins and Duns group, I decided to answer here cause it was so long ago
I saw the pic you posted and thats clearly a BAY DUN ,
Dun horses dont always need to have the striped legs to be duns, what matters is what gene the horse inherited from his parents. If he has one dun parent hes most likely a dun
there was once a misconception in this country that a dun without the proper amount of primitive markings was a "Buckskin" this is not true, A buckskin is a once diluted BAY (diluted by the creme gene)
a dun is a dun is a dun, even when it also carries the "buckskin"/creme gene
dun trumps creme
the Dun horse can come in BAY Chsnt. or BLACK (Dun,Red Dun, Grullo)
I saw you have a lot of experience with showing. I just started showing 3 of my minis and i find it hard to get them to stand up properly two of them have been shown quite alot already before i got them and im either not giving them the right commands or they are just to lazy to do it and i have a little filly who gets really bored of it all very quickly so i cant really do many training sessions as she then gets quite grumpy at shows any tipps???
Your horses are very pretty by the way.
