    JMS: Yes, Saturday was the perfect riding day, wasn't it? I'll be whispering in Santa Claus' ear soon to bring you a trailer for Christmas so TPB can come play with TES.
    Please, please, please do. I would LOVE a trailer. My husband just got a truck that is a suitable tow vehicle, so we would be good to go. As I said before, my barn is almost done. My fencing will be going in by the end of the month. So, I have made huge progress in my life (as my husband calls it " the realization of a dream"). A trailer to come visit you would be the cherry on top.

    JMS: Check out: http://www.fairplayhorse.com/Trailer...for%20Sale.htm

    They have some real nice ones as well as some bargains. I'd kill for that Chaparral!

    They also usually have a good turnover in trailers, so keep your eyes peeled.

    Told you I'm a stinka

    Ohhh, I love my little girl, Fairy the 2 years old 16 hh Clydesdale filly! She is so awesome and fun to be with!

    Last Friday, I rode on my neurotic Arab mare, Abby to condition her for long rides. However, she has proven to need lots of bomb proofing clinic! Abby and I went on the driveway and just when we were right next to a chunk of plywood with a big rock on top of it - debris from tornadoes, Abby spooked in a BIG way that she jumped sideways two or three times that I fell off. I got pissed for I do not want to go to ER! Grrr!

    The next day, I was more determined than ever to "despook" Fairy. After I groomed her, I took her out for a walk on my farm - located several "ghosts" as identified by Abby and had Fairy walk by so I could gauge her reactions. Fairy walked by like nothing happened. I just had to be sure that I picked those up and shook them. Fairy looked at those objects to say, "What is this? What are you doing?" before she looked away nonchalently. During walks, she'd rest her head on my shoulders. Ahhhh, I LOVE her! She does not spook like the Arab mare. I am so willing to work at her pace!
    Will get a dream horse!

    CM-
    I have Hamps down the road from me and he seems to always have something interesting parked out front. Just a two horse stock would be great. I am afraid to even tell you that I am thinking about getting TPB a friend. (I know how helpful you are. ) We are seriously kicking around getting a haflinger that drives. Perfect for the other two semi-riders in my family. Plus, not too bad of a keeper if I end up doing everything myself.

    Talking My boys are great.

    Nice to see sooo many draft fans checking in.
    yesterday my buddy and I took or cross breds to a little local show.
    We got the pants be off of us in the halter classes. I got beat out by a Gypsy Vanner and my friends poor filly tried to kick the judge in her class.
    So, I am a middle-aged women with young draft crossbreds that I love dearly. I dont care how bad we get beaten at shows. My guy Mike is the apple of my eye. I am also in love with my Percheron who is by far the best packer ever. You can see their pix on my link.

    Luckydonkey-what a CUTE Belgian filly!!!!!!

    Spooks I occasionally browse through that rescue site; I hope she gets adopted soon.

    Tarheelmd07 I love Quincey and I must have seen him on PNN before? Those are great shots and love to see the drafties out and about!

    I have a full Percheron and we do some light dressage work (really just for cross training) and hunter pacing; he is a super horse. He is not the typical full draft cold blooded mentality and is quite athletic despite his monstrous size. Finding a dressage saddle was a challenge but he is worth it....

    I should smile more
    Are we done yet?

    Someone asked if Imax is out of a light mare? No, he is not. His mother is Percheron/Paint. Daddy is a stakes winning TB.

    Grandma (Percheron) was 18 hands, so I guess that is where he gets his height.

    His mother was an accidental breeding between a well bred Percheron yearling filly and a well bred Paint stallion. The original mare owner teased us that we probably have one of the best bred "mutts" around!

    I asked I was wondering because he was a lighter type and often apparently those come from having the lighter horse on the bottom. He's gorgeous either way!

    Default Choco! Stop!!

    I'm just about to leave for a trip for two weeks, and when I get back, I need to start looking for a nice school-horse type for my college equestrian club. Don't find new homes for all the good ones just yet, save one for me!!

    (the problem with putting Monstr back to work is that every time I try, he makes another of what my vet is beginning to describe as suicide attempts. It's really just bad karma. One friend suggested that the best way to keep him sound is to get another horse that I need to work, so I won't have time to want to put him back to work. It's really ridiculous!)

    Hey all! I love all of your beautiful drafties!! I'm 33, and I have a yearling draft cross (paint/percheron/smidge of belgian) named Jameson. He was largely unhandled and majorly distrustful when I got him as a weanling, but he's now quite a lover.

    Here's my boy.

    Well, I certainly know who I'm going to contact when I do start looking!

    That Belgian-STB cross is lovely, and I bet that's a good cross, too. Sounds like he's had a good career so far. (alas, a bit spendy for what I need at this point).

    ChocoMare, don't tempt me! I am already suffering because I want that little rescue filly Ellie in the worst way. Sigh. Unfortunately, the current beastie is being boarded and DH is in perpetual shock at the ongoing cost of maintaining said beast. I probably won't be able to get a second horse until we can keep them on our own property (we have the property, but have not built on it yet).

    There used to be the coolest draft X (Clyde/TB I think) in the stall next to my TB. He does the hunt, and is such a goofball. He also has the cutest face I have ever seen on a horse...lightning stripe down a dished face, loooooong eyelashes, total cartoon horse mug.

We are finally getting our canter down better, but I suspect some of our problems had more to do with me than him. I had a bad fall years ago during a canter on my TB mare, and those old memories always come flooding back.

    Imax has just been a wonderful horse for me. He has brought back the "fun" in riding. We won't make it to the Olympics in the dressage world, but I do take dressage lessons and we have fun trying. I love big horses.........it makes those little ones so much easier to ride!!

    Here is the link to his web page. I think he is a pretty special guy.

    Wow he's gorgeous!

    Two weekends ago I had my big girls out to a draft hors club field day. We're learning how to plow. Here's the picture http://www.igs.net/~vkirkwoodhp/pictures/LOMBARDS.JPG
