Re: Your horses!

 Name: Willow

Age: Unknown

Breed: Shetland

Height: 10.2hh

Description: I've had Willow the longest of my herd, and I've bred 2 foals from her. When I bought her she was already in foal with Charlie, and she had Cherry last year (Cherry's sire is Teiko). She's worth her weight in gold and I keep wishing she was a few hands bigger. I drive her in a small pony trap.

Re: Your horses!

 Name: Charlie

Age: 4

Breed: Shetland

Height: 10.2hh

Description: Willow's foal. Charlie isn't really the brightest and she's as long as she is wide (despite being on a restricted diet of 1 small haynet a day and 2 small feeds ALL WINTER!). I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do with her yet.

Re: Your horses!

 And finally...

Name: Cherry

Age: Rising 1

Breed: Shetland

Height: n/a

Description: Willow & Teiko's foal, born summer last year. Cherry is the spitting image of her dad (with facial markings of mum) and the personality to match Teiko too. She's very cheeky. Hoping once she's old enough to break her to drive in pairs with Willow

Re: Your horses!

Name: OakTreePippiLongstockings

 

Age: Rising 3

 

Breed: Part Bred Welsh

 

Description: Unusually marked, shes almost coloured, 4 white legs and a big blaze, splash on her her belly and lots of white dots all over her. i've had her for 18months got her when she was about 15months old and she was wild, never been touched.  took me weeks to get near her in the field, she then became very attached to her sister who she was kept with and wouldnt go anywhere without her. and is now amazing :D shes my absolute pride and joy and never fails to make me smile :) she is referred to as my child and firneds would liken it to being a 'teen mum' the ammount i dote on her and my life revolvs around her! shes an absolute night mare in fields, she winds the other horses up then pretends it wasn't her, will try anything to get into another field, wether it means taking down the fencing, jumping gates or squeezing through small gaps even if the field she is in has more grass! typical youngster tries to push her boundaries at times and can throw a major wobbly, but most of the time she acts like like a 'been there done it' type and is not fazed by anything! i lookforward to many many years with her :)

Re: Your horses!

Reading through all these posts what comes through is the love for our horses including all their faults which we except it what makes them special they are not a dumb animal and the special bond that builds between you cannot be described i'm having to say this as Lara is looking over my shoulder through the living room side window, and I think she can read.

Gypsy Gold does not chink & glitter.It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.Tonka & Lara my beautiful horses RIP, Nelson,Chloe & Kitty the cats.

Re: Your horses!

name: gilly (guilded dancer) TB ex racer

height: 15'2

age: 13

my first horse, known him since he was 1 as dad had him as flat racer- always been a sweet heart, even as a fiery race horse, he would fall asleep on your sholder. inured at 7, after winning 4 races in a row. year out, 3 months with a retrainer and then i took him on! my baby boy- now teaching my dad to ride him!

name: dotty (aero) appaloosa

height: 16'1 ish

age: 7

took on nearly a year ago- just to give a bit of tlc, as abandoned by last loaner, as she couldnt handle her. in touch wit her owners now, but deffinatly something bad happened with the loaner as she was really petrified of everything, even just getting lead out the field she would rear up in frieght. back man said she had deffinatly been hit hard on left side of head. any way- now she is mine on loan, and i love her to bits. she is a handful- a typical mare at times, and occasionally she reverts back to her old terrified self, but come along way. im riding her- which my YO said may never happen she was so messed up, had chucked people off ect- but gained my trust and let me get on her. call her dotty as suits her soooo well: in both looks and personality!

Re: Your horses!

Love this post, so nice to see everyone's neddies!!!

Ok my fella is:

Name: Cadburys Coco (Coco)

Age:  9

Height: 16.3hh

Breed: ID X Warmblood

Description: Full of character, exceedingly strong willed and stubborn but also very giving and although we might not always agree the way things should be, when he gets it right and I tell him how good he is he literally bathes in the praise glory, arches his neck and high steps!!! He is a dominant character and is the top dog in his little herd of 3, but at the same time often lacks confidence and shakes when we see something scary - one of the best feelings in the world when I reassure him, give him a scratch and he then trusts me enough to tip toe past it! Loves to be scratched and fussed over and is also cheeky and playful, picking up my skip and running down the field with it, playing tig in the field with each other (he's better at it than me!) and he is very inquisative wanting to get into everything and find out what you are doing. Basically he is my world and I adore him!

Re: Your horses!

Name: Spangle ( Ellerbeck Spangle)

Age: 2, rising 3 in July

Height: 14hh and growing in every direction, lol

Breed : Gypsy vanner

Description: well, bought him as a weanling to be a breeding stallion, ended up gelding him at 18months though as he went a bit loony on box rest for his hoof infection. I show him in hand and have started lightly backing him ready for July when i can start him properly, he also is broken to drive and is very good at it, he doesnt wear blinkers and goes perfectly off voice commands, i love him, we're just trying to get his hair to grow back now after it got  trashed over the winter =(
