    very pretty! I used to have an American Quarter Pony gelding & a 1/2 Arabian/Grade mare but I sold them 2 years ago to focus on the goats.

    Your horses are GORGEOUS! I love Rascal! He's so hunky :love:

    I have two horses, a Spotted Saddle mare and a mini :)

    This is my Sugar. She is my baby.

    She does almost everything I ask her too without a fuss :)

    Jumping. lol........I look awful.....this was a little while ago....

    I bought Sugar in November of 2009. She had an abcess then and terrible feet. It took forever to get it healed. It was almost to her coffin bone. Shes actually Insulin Resistant and founders on grass easily in the spring. :GAAH: But I love her to pieces anyways!

    I don't really have any pics of the mini at the moment :p Hehe

    I love Blue's markings. And Sugar is adorable, she looks like she'd be a blast to ride.

    Beautiful horses!

    Here are mine.

    Jetta, an 11hand Pony made of pure cute and pure EVIL. LOL. No one but me can ride her so far. She's dumped everyone else on the ground. I need to find someone who knows what they're doing to spank her butt like I did. She's a TOUGH little bugger though, and can truck me around all day. I generally ride her bareback because I can't find a saddle that fits here LOL.

    And this is my new mare! She's a registered Missouri Fox Trotter. 13hands (I think, haven't sticked her) She was a broodmare, but is turning out to be a right fine little riding horse. Has an AMAZING foxtrot. She rides really good with other horses (or Jetta) but is nervous when on her own. We're working on it. I don't have any really good pictures of her just yet, as I have had her less than a month and we've had NASTY weather.

    Beautiful horses guys!!

    Epona...I had a little black pony (well...miniature) that was very fiesty too. She was adorable...but only sweet when she wanted to be. Hehehe. Congrats on your new mare...she's looks really nice!

    Kylee, yay for new photos! I ADORE your horses. And that Gypsy is also a stunner.

    I have three right now, and my mare is due to foal in May.

    Romeo - Appendix Quarter Horse Gelding

    [​IMG]

    He is only two in these photos and is still a bit gangly. You can really see the Thoroughbred in him when he goes through growth spurts.

    Calypso - Quarter Horse Mare

    Here is the stud she is bred to, Paintncash Reward by Wanted Reward. He is a homozygous tobiano, so I am guarunteed some spots on baby. And he is a red dun, so I am hoping I either get a dun or a roan like mom.

    [​IMG]

    (Sorry if the picture is huge.)

    I also have a giant grey Quarter Horse gelding named Chief. I just got him in November and don't have any photos currently, but he is super broke and has done it all from packing elk to roping so I am way excited about him.

    Epona, beautiful pony! What kind of bridle do you have on her? I have one like that buts a rope type halter/bridle. Its supposed to be good but I found it kind of 'suffocated' Sugar. :?

    All these horse are BEAUTIFUL everyone!

    It's a nylon bridle with a soft hackamore attached. I got it off of ebay hehe. She HATES HATES HATES a bit in her mouth. I don't know if she's had kids yanking on her face before or what, but she will not tolerate even a soft snaffle. (Yes her teeth were checked and floated)

    She does really good in the hack and has become very responsive.

    We sure have a beautiful group of horses here!!

    My beloved "baby" girl ... purchased her at about 2 or 3 days old, while I was out test riding a two year old to buy. Needless to say, the two year old didn't come home with me that day! :greengrin: She came home instead a few months later.
    She's a gorgeous cutting/reining bred APHA Paint horse. She's now blind in one eye, after bumping her eye hard on a bucket one summer trying to scratch her forehead. Vets determined that she hit it "just right" and apparently killed the eye itself. Luckily she has crystal blue eyes so you cant really tell. And it doesn't bother her any.
    She's been everywhere with me over the past 17 years... As a baby she used to stand in the kitchen with me while I washed dishes (I was in college & living in a tiny 2nd home on a farm). hee hee... the good ol days.

    She's one of those "Too smart for their own good" kinda girls. She loves to play dumb, till I call her bluff...then she gets this frustrated expression...like "FINE!" and then does what was asked of her. Her best talent is playing dumb... like "Oh my gosh, I've never seen a horse trailer before! SCARY!" (except for the other 100 times I've been in one of course!!)... silly girl!
    Thought a lot about breeding her over the years...but just never did. She's just gorgeous in conformation. These pics are terrible... She's got great ol' school super straight legs, just dead on perfect. Good solid bone, just like an old school wanna be halter horse that can actually get down and get it done... (like they used to do...but that's another story!)

    Sorry I don't have better pics... she's a gorgeous TANK of a mare, VERY flashy...but rainy pics from Oregon is all I've got right now.
