    Thanks, guys. She's not terribly uncoordinated and doesn't act silly, so it sounds like we won't need to do anything. I'm all for not adding any more equipment than I have to! Just wanted to make...
  5. Bell boots behind too now that we're going to stud?

    McKinna? We got her at the Woodburn auction. No test ride, no vet check, just 30 seconds or so of watching her in the 30x30 ring under western tack :D

    Naturally, I highly discourage buying horses...
