  1. Horse trailer question

    6' just doesn't seem tall enough for a horse that's 15.2. You have to remember that a horse that is 15.2 is about 62 inches tall, while 6' is 68 inches. That doesn't give your horse too much space in the trailer. I know they sell trailers 7' and up. Not saying you have to go that big, but that I think it would be wiser then a trailer that is only 6' tall.

  3. Horse Names!!!

    I knew a horse named Justice, thought it was a pretty cool name. He was a total trouble maker too, it was pretty ironic. Cowgirls Fancy Man Playgirls Got Blues [my mare who had blue eyes, thought it was a cute play on her, so props to whoever thought of it]

  5. what colour is she?

    For some reason I can't get the links to post here, but I've browsed multiple sites on Equine color and most come to the same conclusion, that sorrel and chestnut are essentially the same thing. The redish brown coat that makes up these colors come in varying shades which produce the debate on the name of the color. Oddly enough, it also seems to ba a culture thing. In England and many parts of the East Coast people use the term chestnut while on the West Coast uses sorrel. The same pattern can be seen through riding discipline, where most English event type breeds say chestnut while Western says sorrel. Seems far fetched, I know, but when I think about it, I have noticed it. When I began riding, at a barn full of mostly english horses all the redish horses were called chestnuts. When I moved to the reining barn I trained at [all western of course] just about every redish horse was known as sorrel. JMHO

  9. critique?

    Sorry, I'm not much of a Morgan person either so I know very little but I was wondering about the hollowed back too? Reins look tight to me, but I ride Reining/WP so there's very little contact on the face. As far as equitation critique, in the Western [and even the bareback] one your hand should definately be down and more relaxed. It's hard to see your leg through the copyright on the picture, but to me it looks like you could relax your leg a bit, Western isn't a stiff discipline, if that makes sense?

  11. what colour is she?

    Makes some sense. My mares foal was born sorrel a bit redish like mom, baby fuz grew in deep liver chestnut and she's sheding out to be a very light sorrel. Babies change A LOT, you gotta give them some time. Sorrel and Chestnut, really don't have much difference honestly. Especially not determined by mane color. I agree with Ride the Hide, that sounds more bay. Your girl looks like a definate sorrel too me.

    She's definately a sorrel, really no question unless I'm missing something...? I don't want to sound rude, but what made you question it?

  15. I got my letterman's jacket today! -pictures-

    Lucky! My school doesn't really do Lettermen's jackets, not even the boys. I mean I could buy one...start a trend and all but it's not the same. Some of the tradtions my school comes up short with are lame...
