Topics I've Started

Barn, Yes!

24 October 2014 - 11:46 AM

Finalizing with a lawyer next week. Payment will be put down on it on Nov 15th! What a HUGE major step guys! 


Now, we have been looking at options for stalls..the back of the barn is dirt floor. We are going with 4 box stalls...and

the rest tie stalls. 


What are your choices for stalls, and flooring.


Pictures please! 

So What Do You Think..

I have taken an interest in genetics etc etc.


I've sent in Gunners Hair samples, to find out if he carries the LWO gene and checking for the Agouti gene.

Molly my mare threw a buckskin baby, who was homozygous for the Agouti gene.  


Because my foals all had fairly white socks..someone mentioned that he may be carrying a gene that would be overo.

His dam was a minimal white overo, He's a solid Red Dun with white socks.


Also thinking about Color Paneling Molly...I thought she was a smokey black..but something is saying buckskin to me.



Have any of you tested your horses..to just "know" ? 

Fall & Winter Exchange

03 September 2014 - 08:07 AM

I was thinking about this the other day.


Would anyone be interested in doing a Single Item Tack Exchange For this Fall?

 You wouldn't have to buy anything, but take one item of your own tack,

to swap with someone, with a card and a simple treat?


For the Christmas Exchange.


1 Christmas Card and 1 Item only. It wouldn't have to be

a Tack item..but it could be a nice little Decoration, a funny saying. Or a recipe book.

I would say on the Christmas one..no less than 5$ but no more than 15$ 

unless your money tree is generously producing and you want to do more?



If anyone is interested in doing something so simple!

Let me know!

Hi! :-)

I just wanted to pop in..and say..My first major show coming up in a few days! Leaving here on the 29th, with horse trailer, two horses,husband,kids! 

That is an experience in itself! 


Dabbling my toes in the showing a bit! I am so nervous! Is there any tips I can get from you experts out there!


Mostly this year I am going to go have fun! If I utterly fail at placing! I will chalk it up to gaining experience! 


I am going to be doing, Halter classes, Color classes and a green Walk/Trot with a 4 yo! Doing an in hand trail class

with Rogue! 



I will be sending the Camera with hubby! SO hopefully he can take at least 1 or two pictures! 


I am overall having a great year! With the addition of the trailer, the barn! Starting in Oct/Nov on 

stalls in that! So that is extremely exciting..it has been a "long" 7 years in getting to this point!


My kids are growing and doing well! We purchased a Mini Pony for the kids, boy has that been

an interesting thing! haha. She is also harness broke as well.


Just a few highlights!
