A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I'm the mom of three adult children, happily married to a great guy. I love to travel and horse around. I am a bit passionate about horses. I'm excited about getting out on some of the many horse trails to explore. I love progressing with natural horse techniques on the ground and in saddle.
I think of my horse as a fun partner. I started riding at 53 years old when Cash was 3. We'ver kinda grown up together and still have lots of goals to reach.
Horses definitely bring out the best in me.
Do you have any pets?
"CASH" 8 yr old QH and share "Quilombo" son's pitbull

Shirley,  Thanks for the welcome to Barnmice.  I too am in the "Over 60" group.  60 is the new 40, right?  My oldest horse will be 32 in the spring.   I bought him when he was 10, so we've been together a long time.  He's a TB and is one in a million.  I had a birthday party for him when he turned 25, and 30. The vets came, as did the farrier and friends. I ride mostly dressage and for pleasure.  Thanks again for the welcome!

Hi Shirley!

I just noticed that you left a comment on one of my photos from 2011!!  Sorry I didn't reply sooner! (or maybe I did, but can't remember).  My mare, Fanny, is half Canadian Horse and half Newfoundland Pony  :o)

That video is amazing! You have to have lots of time to train them this well. I sometimes think If we could spend 8 to 10 hours a day working and playing with our horses that we could have our guys almost this good LOL I often wonder how they do it, get to work and play with horses every day, being able to make a living at it and pay all their bills, own a big property, drive big trucks and have big horse trailers. What a life...((sigh)) (yes hard work that they enjoy)

I love your attitude towards riding, and I think your horse is pretty awesome.  The first horse I owned was a 1/4 horse, and he was an amazing partner for me, he took me where angles dare to tread!  The courage of a lion, and the willingness to win of a million dollar horse, all for 500 dollars purchase price.

I'm glad you liked little Steal's photo.  He is a really cute 14.3-15 hand stb gelding we bought for cheap to get my husbands' licence (back) with.  He is a stb, so he is a horse, and with his long trotting feet he is about 15 hands, but he is really just a large pony!!! Tough chew for us as we like big horses, I though that my 15.3 1/2 hand stb Tattoo was small enough at 750 or so lbs!!! now this little guy is no bigger than a minutes-- that's what you get when you buy them over the phone sight unseen (not as bad as it sounds as you do have race lines with stbs lol)-- anyway, I thought that this was a cute photo of him, he will make someone a great family pony when he is done racing as he is a gentleman, and really sweet with people and horses.  I haven't broken him to ride yet, but if I get that far with him, I know he will make a great little english jumper (or a very good trail horse for someone).  deb

Hi Shirley! The cold has really been bothering me so far this year. Very unusual for me but I can't bundle up either because then I overheat. I have been sick all week and will probably stay in all weekend. Cooper is in a good spot, I don't have to worry about him. And a little ground work before riding gets his mind right.

I don't remember if I got notice, I think I did, but this week has been fuzzy.

Al's truck is broke down and is in the garage right now. It's too old to spend lots of money, 1996 Ford Explorer, or Exploder as they call them. Nothing works in it, he's got a lot of the fuses and bulbs out of it, but it at least it was running until yesterday.

He is still working on a tack locker for the new place too, so right now my car is stuffed with horse things.

Soon time to go home, I was off work 1 day this week and came in late 2 other mornings. I feel guilty being at home even though I am really sick.

Love that video, Cash is so full of it LOL I like when Cooper gets like that, but of course on the ground only!! Cooper often bucks when I ask for the first canter/lope on the ground.

Hi Shirley! Thanks for joining my group. I posted links to more information on the breed. Feel free to ask any questions and if I cannot answer them, the folks that run the .org site can.  Did you view the pic of the foal?
