    Default Fudge-name and Video

    Here is a very short video of Fudeg....Brag time....it was 42degrees and very windy and he hadn't been ridden all the past week due to me being sick and trainer away. He also hadn't jumped all month as we are working on straight and flat work so that his changes will be 100%.
    This is as "fresh" as he gets...I love this new baby!!
    PS....my trainer is very very tall and makes every horse look small....Fudge is 16.2 lolol

    I think his show name will be Oh Fudge....Minister of Magic is taken by someone right here in NJ so...

    Thanks....I sure did!! And when he isn't fresh you can even loop the reins after the jump....I am really lucky. I have owned him 2.5 months and have never seen him "grumpy" unlike my mare I owned for 6 yrs. lol

    Thanks Love....he is uncomplicated which is a terrific change for me. I keep pinching myself .

    He also has a huge stride which is great! And he makes us all laugh so Oh Fudge really fits!

    He's beautiful and uncomplicated, I want one!

    his breeding:
    Shamrock-sire...now gelded for a junior
    arabella - TB

    His full brother is Spellbound-stallion the breeder is promoting. He is being shown by Arron Vale. Did the first years last yr.

    Line goes back to cor de la byere.

    I don't know much about warmblood breeding, now ask me about appendix quarter horses and I know a ton :-)
    I had no idea I would end up with a warmblood, or holsteiner/TB lol

    Thanks on the congrats!

    I have been riding with Brandon Clinton for as long as he has been in NJ....1.5 years. No intentions on changing, lol

    Who was your trainer that I rode with?
    Your horse is soooo cute too!!

    Yes Lo belongs to my niece! Jessi P, Diana and I stay in touch via Facebook. He is doing very very well. WHen he walked off the trailer he knew he was retired from the track I swear. He only had about 2 months down time and went right to work, slowly. Diana took her time with him! He is such a funny boy...makes a really nasty face at me until I give him a pepermint, then his ears come up lol

    Ahh maybe it was your friends horse or something? Didn't you know Jason and Heidi at Rhythm and Blues?

    And thankya My bay gelding had to be retired so he's just a pasture puff now that I board at a small private place near my house. Liam is my other guy that I got a year and a half ago, he's a greenie and pretty darn complicated but kind with a good brain. Been to a couple of shows, and making some progress, but I'm certainly in for the long haul with him... doesn't matter because I love him to pieces and he's not going anywhere

    Best of luck with Fudge, he looks awesome, and the type of horse you could look forward to riding every day. Keep us posted with his progress

    Small World!.....Yes I boarded with them several years. But it is more dressage oriented and I have always been a sucker for a good hunter....although Fudge gets basic dressage flat work also. We don't ride them any other way.....its the basis of all our flat work. I was there with Alli, but she hated dressage and lived to jump.I moved her to Brandon and he did her in a few derbies and she sold. Now I have the best of both worlds...a hunter who will also know low level dressage :-)

    I am still friends with all the crew at R&B and my friend still boards there and trailers out for event jumping training and does her dressage with Heidi.

    How far away are you?

    He has never shown in an indoor, the big crapper was in Ocala last winter.....grrrrr......I wasn't, lol.

    Not sure when we are going to start showing, do something at 2'6" probably first for him to get show miles. He is ready to do 3' but needs some show miles first....he has only shown 7 times...at HITS Ocala and HIT saugerties.....did not place in FLA....60+ entries in division and he was not 100% on changes....placed at HITS Saugerties last 2 times shown.

    Trying to head for the derbies at 3' with 3'3" options with my trainer riding. I am "old" and do fossils over fences divisions, no longer do the 3'

    I see you are in Bridgewater. I used to board in Whitehouse Station years ago when I lived in Scotch Plains....I Miss it!!

    You are more than welcomed to come to where Fudge is in Cream Ridge and meet us. My trainer has a client whose horse is named AliCat!

    I ride at Briarwood, and have a wonderful time doing that wimpy Low Adult (2'6) division at the shows there on my faithful schoolie. I'd love to see you guys there some time.
