Maybe, Baby


Practicing selfies.  An important skill for any horse that is my partner.


Rocking the english outfit for me and the Western get up for the mystery pony.

I don't want to jinx anything, but this boy has the perfect resume, a handsome face, passed his vet check and is arriving tomorrow for a 'make sure' trial.  Also, I adore his current owner and we both want the same things for the pony.  Lessons scheduled, stall procured and shockingly, I have managed to restrain myself from buying everything in sight since he's a new color AND a new size.

I'd love to hear (or better yet see pictures) from redheaded pony owners about what colors they like best so I can start window shopping.  Keep your fingers crossed that our love affair is real and that the next few days are magical.  Also curious on folks thoughts about x-ray vs. not x-ray.  Vet didn't see any reason to x-ray and he's 10 and has not been pushed hard, gamed or jumped.  Thanks for your thoughts!

  2. Super cute!!!! I would make sure in your make sure trial, that you ride him on the kind of contact desired for dressage if that is your goal. I see the western tack and some western horses don't have the kind of contact you would want in dressage and it can be a long and frustrating road. Also, do things like taking him solo trail riding, give him a bath, cross water, go over a fence, and load onto different trailers. Good luck!

  3. Great advice from Stanthehorse! For my PPE for my new Cob mare, I went with the vets advice - he didn't see anything that indicated taking x-rays unless I really wanted them done.
    Since Fergie is my first chestnut, I find she looks great in blues and greens.
