    heyy all!
    how many horses have you owned in your lifetime?

    I've owned two...

    Sandy a Percheron/Belgian mare going on 7 this year. got her last year.
    she is my baby.

    and two days after Christmas '08 I got Princess a 20 year old Belgian mare who has the bigest eyes I've ever seen.

    before Sandy I leased this amazing 9 year old Paint gelding for the summer. he was deaf but could still place in the ribons! he was amazing!

    And I'm looking into getting another mare.
    a 5 year old Pinto from the same owners of Princess.

    So how many horses have you owned?

    I'm have a brood mare brand on shares with my brothers in Idaho, and I would have to say it is pretty easy to have horses but the trick is getting rid of them. My brothers are pretty good at getting horses finished and sold, but for me, I find it pretty hard to turn loose.
    I'm no trader but I did try it out for a few years and only one year I kept records and I think I had around 150 that year. But i grew out of that scheming and now I just dream. I have a bridle horse I finished and a jumper kwpn mare out of Sondro Boy, but it only sounds nice to say the fancy name but really I care more about her than only that. For me growing up in a ranching community it was pretty easy to have ten new horses a year but I seemed to be attatched to everyone of them.

    My first horse was a TB mare off the track, she ended up being really sour (would rear and go over backwards) so I ended up selling her. Now I have a two (coming on three) year old 3/4 Morgan X 1/4 Appy. He is wonderful, I got him when he was 6wks old (we bought him and his mother). I broke him this year and he is doing wonderful (we can ride by ourselves whenever we want to) I just recently got a TBx mare from a rescue place, she is 17 or 18 blind in one eye and was VERY underweight when I got her. She has since put on about 150lbs and is a dream to ride, very safe for all of the people who don't know how to ride. She still has some bad habits that we are working out but is coming along nicely.

    My parents also have my two year old's full brother who is a year coming up on two. He will be broke this spring sometime. They have a 5 year old QHx mare (getting broke but not there yet), the QH's baby coming up on a year, and a 15yr old full Arabian who does it all (including birthday parties).

    So between the family we have six horses right now. :P

    I am on horse number eight, my first gaited horse. I bought a Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse 2 months ago and LOVE his little rack! I still giggle when he racks, it feels so cool! One of the cute things "Charlie" does is he falls asleep when groomed and loves the clippers so much, he leans into it. I was told he is an ex show horse, so he doesn't care what you do to him, but he obviously spent lots of time outside the ring, as he is wonderful on trails, along the street, dogs barking at his heels, etc. I often lead on group rides, because his lack of fear, comforts other, more nervous horses. Thank you, Lord, Charlie is just the kind of horse I needed, just getting back into riding at age 50, with all my aches and pains! Gaited horses are AWESOME!!!!!
