  1. hunter show pix critique?

    Well if it makes you feel any better you look WAY better than some of the other people in your class. I was looking at the other pictures in the first link, and I thought you looked way better. At least your horse didn't refuse a jump (like one of the other horses )
  2. American Shetland foal pics!

    Yes, I'm pretty proud of him, couldn't have asked for a cuter one! And I think he might have blue eyes too. But they're like a dark blue though, they look brown but if you look at them closely they're dark blue! We hope to train him to do everything, including riding and driving. His momma loves to jump free hand and I'm hoping to teach her to jump under saddle this summer. But both of his parents are VERY good halter horses. And yes, I had a nurse tell me I looked like punky brewster once, I didn't even know who she was though!

  4. American Shetland foal pics!

    Here are some pics of Captain Jack (aka Captain) He was born May 21st. These pics were taken when he was about 4 days old. Like I said, he's an American Shetland. He's just the cutest and LOVES to buck! (he'll be a joy to train to ride! haha) This is my first foal, so it'll be pretty interesting! But here are some (well actually, A LOT!) of pictures, enjoy! me and captain my boots tasted good mommy and baby! he LOVES to buck! more coming
  5. Color Predictions for my foals ?

    try this site. http://www.animalgenetics.us/CCalculator1.asp i tried it before my mare foaled, and it said the foal was most likely to be a bay tovero, and that's what i got!
  6. Video of my pony barrel racing!

    Thanks everyone! I love my little Angel! She's an American Shetland Pony and is only 11.2 hands! Luckily I'm only 5' 2" (and probably won't grow anymore) so I can still ride her. Don't worry, we definately won't push her hard, we want this foal to be safe and sound! I'd like to maybe continue her in barrel racing and pole bending, she's seems to enjoy them. We bred her to my friend's American Shetland stallion, N.J.'s Catillac Style. His sire is N.J.'s Naughty Cat (out of Georgetown's Tom Cat) and his dam is Wilk Stolleys Dolly (out of Raven of Bird Haven) I'm not quite sure of Angel's breeding, I always forget. But I know she's out of some really famous stallion, I always forget the name though. But we plan on keeping the foal and training it to be an all around and do as much as we can get it to do. Both Angel and Cat (the stallion) have perfect temperments, they have just the amount of "pep" (I know Angel looks really calm in the video, but as soon as you take her to a show, she goes HYPER!!!) But we have big plans for this foal, since it will have AMAZING lines. I just can't wait! The stallion we bred Angel to: MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
  7. Video of my pony barrel racing!

    Well, last saturday I went out and rode my pony Angel (who hasn't been riden in almost a month! ) I want to take things a little easier on her since she has a foal due in May, so I told myself no jumping and no cantering or galloping. So out comes the western saddle, we just worked on circles and bending, but then I was getting bored, so I decided to try some barrel racing (only going at a trot though) It was only Angel's second time barrel racing ever, so it was pretty interesting at first! But my friend made a video of us. It's pretty corny, we were trying to be all dramatic to make it a bit humorous, since there's no excitement in only going what? 5 mph? So go ahead and watch it, we got a laugh out of it! just click on it to watch: p.s. that wasn't our best run, we got better later on. but i know to you barrel racers it was hideous, lol!
  8. Costume Ideas

    i went to a show and entered the costume contest there. i got a 1st and 2nd place with this costume. it was a witch and broom thing. i dressed up as a witch. we then made a brown slinky for the horse and took the sweeping part of 3 brooms off and attatched them to the horse's hindquarters. i rode the horse around bareback. it was really fun and easy!

  10. riding improved after a long break?

    That happens to me all of the time! When I first started to learn how to ride I just couldn't get my posting and diagnols right. Then I didn't ride for about 3 weeks and when I came back I had my posting and diagnols down perfectly!
  11. thoroughbreds doing western?? *help me*

    I've seen tbs barrel race and do well. But if you're only beginning barrels I wouldn't get a 4 yr old. I'd get a nice seasoned finsihed barrel horse. Two beginners don't always go together well.

  13. Sooo... Aside from riding, what are your hobbies?

    I wish my life revolved around horses and being at the barn. But, being the only horselover in a family with 4 kids, horses are not the top priority to my parents. I go and ride at my friend's house about once a week. I would go over more often but she lives 25 minutes away and with gas prices these days... During the summer usually I'm bored out of my mind. I play soccer, run track (run the 800 and sometimes the 1600) chat with friends online, make graphics, and play horseland (It's a sad addiction, lol) I also love to shop but right now I have no income of money. I used to baby sit a lot but nobody's called me lately. I also love my two cats, Midnight and Patches. We're looking for a Welsh Corgi right now so if anyone knows of any near Dallas, TX, pm me please! Midnight: Patches:
  14. OK I was really bored so I thought I'd try it too. The first pic all I did was and text and enhance the pic a little to make it better quality. The second pic I did a little more. If you'd like me to add or change anything just pm me. Enjoy! And prayers for your parent's biker friend Grrr! I don't know what's going on. I have both the pictures saved as the same size but the first keeps uploading smaller. I'll see if I can fix it later, it's really late and I'm tired.
