A Belated Turkey Day Video
Thanksgiving was a blast. In the morning I rode Willow (where I sprained my ankle), then we tailgated at the blessing of the hounds. After the blessing, we drove around the countryside to follow the hunt.
Lilly is a '04 Bay Overo Paint/Percheron PMU mare, who I have had since she was 1.5 years old. When I got her, she was barely halter broke, and now we compete in local horse shows. She is very good natured and smart, but sometimes stubborn.
Willow is a 07 Dark Bay Shire/Dutch Harness filly that I just got 3/2009. Already at 2, she is 16.2 hands tall. She was raised on an Amish farm, thus, we have had to deal with a lot of trust issues. We have come a long way already. She is a very laid back filly, who now loves all the attention she can get! In the future, I would like to use her for fox hunting and cross country.
Bright n Stormy (Stella)
Stella is a 'o6 OTTB filly I just got in November from Laural Park racetrack. She was a turf horse, but turf season is over. She has a big personality, and I will be training her to be a show horse.
