    If you like everything else about the horse I wouldn't let height stop you. Although I have never ridden a horse that is too big for me.....I'm 6' with long legs. It would have to be some 19h...

    I love the Moonie stories!

    I'm another Food Lady. Actually, I'm fairly sure the cowpony used to refer to me as Devil Woman. Then we made an agreement that I stay out of his way when working...

    I have problems with breeches falling down when they're too short in the thigh. I'm long-waisted with big long thighs and hips. I'm waiting to find ANY pair of pants that fits me without scrunching...

    My TB gets Bobster, Bobert, the Robert, any other version of Bobby that you can think of. When I'm mildly annoyed with him it's usually Junior or Skippy. When I'm really annoyed with him what I...

    I'd just like everyone to know that, inspired by this thread, I yelled "bad boy! No guacamole for you, pony!" at my uncle's cowpony when he bucked tonight.

    Does he just have a really faded tattoo? My horse's tattoo has been fairly illegible for a few years now and he's only 12. You kind of have to know it's there to even see it. My boy definitely...

    OP, is your bro-mare a special snowflake of a gray TB who has a stalker? And is your son going to train it once he recovers from his pilondial cyst?

    My TB isn't really a firecracker but maybe 2-3x a year he needs a good blast under saddle. It's not for fitness, it's mental. I pick a nice big hill and grab mane. Endless trot sets and schooling...

    My horse came with a photo coggins when I got him in 2009. That was the first (and only) time I'd ever seen a photo one. I prefer photo but don't mind old school because my horse is easy to draw. ...
