    Default Ponies are like Potato Chips

    As it would turn out, ponies are like potato chips... you can't have just one!
    So i have just made my very first 'grown up' horse purchase, adding a second GRP to my string (the first one was a college graduation gift from my very supportive mother! Best mom ever!). She's a 4 year old, recently backed GRP (registered RPSI not Wesser-EMS). She vetted clean today, and I'll be driving down to pick her up this weekend!

    I have to post here because none of my friends or family in this area 'gets' it when it comes to my ponies and the time I 'waste' just 'playing around while going in circles'

    I know COTHers love their pictures, and they will come up as soon as I get my new pony!

    Congrats! My rescue mare is a companion horse, so she doesn't count in the total But I have my horse, and have pretty much taken over riding Mom's horse because she's been less interested lately... but I'm still trying to figure out another horse for me.

    I need more saddle time, darnit!
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    SO EXCITING!!

    Though I'm pretty glad I've resisted the bite of the get-another-pony-bug thus far. I love 'em, but they're hell on my self-esteem with their little pony-says-no attacks...

    Also I expect to see you posting about doing all sorts of showing. Just sayin'.

    ...and pictures.

    Just an update: I picked up my new pony yesterday (7 hours, each way, with a trailer... I was tired by the time I got back).

    She's settled in like a champ, and seems to be a grreat addition to my string. Now off to get pictures....

    Default Thanks Guys!

    She's a Beaujolais x Chanti mare. I had my first ride on her yesterday... Let's just say that she's earned her oats.
    Chronicled here: http://poodlesnponies.blogspot.com/

    For the level of crazy that was going on, she held it together pretty well. I swear I'll try for some pictures when there is less crazy in the area.

    The good news is that she and my other GRP (Hilkens Black Delight x Irish Rose) are turned out next to one another, and are already fast friends (totally ignoring my QH gelding who is in solitary because he's proven that the power of having a herd goes straight to his head. Not a benevolent leader). The pony airs above the ground are just too fun to watch as the weather is changing (snow tomorrow ). Next time I'll try to have the camera handy!
