I have a good number of t.b.'s in the barn. I'll take one, any day. Let's see: Dancing After Dark, Mystic, No Decision, Errol Starr. Also, Dancing After Midnight. And that's all the t.b.'s. Everyone else, is a different breed or type.
Registered Name: Optical Isomer
Show/barn name: Spartacus, aka Spar
Colour: dark bay with a star
Age: 6 going on 13
Occupation: Besides being a spoiled rotten suck? An eventer. And he LOVES it.
I won't ever own another breed. Ever. I might be biased, but I have never ridden or seen a horse with as much heart and intelligence as mine, with the much appreciated bonus of a good mind. He never spooks, but is so alert. In his stall or crossties he's always doing ten things at once, but when we start to work he's completely focused and so enthusiastic about his work and pleasing me. He is absolutely incredible - my dream horse. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/sadsmile.gif

Rocco is a 1990 TB gelding, 16.2 1/2 hands, blood bay. His JC registered name is Strelka. His breeding is Foolish Pleasure X Springs Promise, he raced but obviously wasn't a star, or I wouldn't be lucky enough to have him now. He was a stud and is a father of 6, I think (I have to look at his record again), and was gelded when he was 9 or so. You wouldn't know it, he's really quiet and has great manners! Now he's my spoiled little baby! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

If you must choose between two evils, choose the one that you've never tried before.
I have the following: (all registered names first)
Key Evidence (aka Beast): 9y/o, bay gelding, about 16.2hh
Baileys Flurry: 5y/o bay gelding, about 15.2hh
Ktaya: 11y/o dk bay gelding, about 15.3hh
Swashbuckler (not sure of exact reg name): 6 y/o bay gelding, about 16.3+hh
Also my friend's mare, Yankee Flower: 16y/o bay mare, about 16.2hh

I have a new TB "Dan the Man" (registered as Went a Dancin'), he's a coming 3 yo (or a 3 yo according to the JC). He's 16.1+ and still growing, and the most mild mannered lazy boy I have ever been around. He puts all the WBs in the barn to shame as far as laid back attitude goes. His favorite things to do are sleep (laying down out in the sun), eat, and stand in the crossties for hours checking things out.
I thought I wanted a WB because I wanted something calm and mild mannered now that I am getting older. Nobody told Dan he was supposed to be hot and crazy.
If he stays like this I think I will be a TB convert forever.
