My Horse Forum
Post your crosses and unknown origin horses here!
I'll start. This is my horse that as best I can tell is mainly QH/Arabian with a possible dash of Appy. You can't see it here but she does have some random pick patches of skin and striped hooves like an App.
She adores rolling. This picture is from a year or two ago. She is approx. 21 now. I was never sure of her age. The idiots I got her from couldn't be relied on for accurate information. She could have been anywhere from 3-7. She was malnourished and majorly mishandled. It's taken a long time to work out her issues.
Well I wanted to jump on this foaling band wagon!!! My mare Cash N Chexx aka Bea is a maiden mare and is at 317 days today. She is bred to a little dun reigning stallion named Dun Walla Walla. DNA test show that the only color combination possible from this cross is a Bay or a Dun. I am personally hoping for a dun colt with some white if the stars align. Mare does have a star and a coronet band, stud only has a crooked little snip. In the past few days there have been some HUGE changes in Bea. First off the baby finally dropped and is hanging low instead of high and tight like it has for the whole pregnancy. Her udder has ballooned and all the right places are loose and ready. Her vulva has also doubled in size seemingly over night. Now enough of my talking and here are the pictures!
Why is it important to ask the horse to engage his/her core and lift their back ? Why is important to ride in a particular way, to ask the horse to carry themselves in a particular way, and to examine your own position and core strength? Why create space between the vertebrae and flexibility both longitudinally and latitudinally ?
Me and my boyfriend left Friday around noon for our trip from San Antonio, Texas to Phoenix, Arizona to get my new horse. It was a 1007 mile drive one way. We made it there Saturday just before 1 pm.
I tried out the horse..... And loved her! She's so sweet. No buck, kick, bite, rear, nothing.
Her only bad habits that I could find are that she doesn't stand still when held or tied. She doesn't pull back, but she paces. And she sticks her tongue out constantly plays with the bit no matter what.
Both things can easily be fixed though, so no worries about that.
She was bred as a 3 yo to the biggest stud the people could find at the time and the baby was so big it had to be cut out of her. She's nearly 7 now and is perfectly healthy. She just needs a couple stitches so she doesn't make noise when she runs. And if we ever choose to breed her, some other stitches need to be removed first.
I'm not into the breeding thing, so she will most likely never be bred. But my boyfriend knows about...
