    A Little History?

    Hi. Haven't been on in a while. We acquired a new mini mare this past fall. I wondered if any of you could give me a little history and photos on a couple horses in her bloodlines? Graham's Hot Topic 305712B (Graham's Little Tramp HOF x Graham's Sooner Doll). Oh Cisco 52159A Bertrand's Doncha...

    AMHR look up/photos/information

    Trying to research some background on a mare we purchased. Interested in finding out more on her side and on another stallion that is in both sides of her bloodlines. The side is Jazz' Starlite Sparkles 217482B black/white pinto 35.75". The other stallion is Paqueno Amigo 45529A black/white...

    Mare kicks

    We bought a driving mare that drives single and clear up to 8-horse hitch and tandem. She comes to you, nickers and stalls well. But she is horrible when in heat. Squats, squirts, messy down the back legs and kicks- horses and people. She is not trustworthy when out of heat either. Still might...

    Reclast for Osteoporosis

    Just wondered if any of you out there are using Reclast to treat Osteoporosis and what you think of it? Did you have trouble with the 'flu like' symptons and how and how long? Anything else? Is it horribly expensive? I'm not a good candidate for the orals because I have IBS and a 'nervous'...

    What are you watching?

    We just get plain old local channels where we are at. No cable and not wanting to spend the extra for satelite or netflix at the moment. And this is 'nothing is on' season. We've been watching American Idol, Shark Tank and heck's Kitchen. Amazing Race and Survivor start soon-favorites of ours...

    Star Lake Harness

    My Mom has had that one for a number of years now. It's a really really nice harness. Cathy is great to work with. We have been buying things from her for a number of years. You won't regret dealing with her and you should be extremely pleased with the harness!

    Show 'stance'

    Is that Kevin? Wow! Love his look in those summer pics! Very nice. And so cute in the winter fluffies! Ours always look so so different in their fluffies from their summer looks. They just look like they are two different horses, don't they?!!!

    Show results : Share yours

    Wow! Getting asked to brag! LOL!!! We only showed about 3 times this year and basically just 3 horses. My husband's boy "Jag" had a nice year. Doing very well in driving in particular. His best win was probably his first at the County Fair in Open Mini Pleasure driving (all "types"-he's a...

    Fair Time!

    We have been showing 'equines' (Welsh at first, then on to Shetlands and now minis) at our County Fair for 30 years. In the past I used to enter the culinary division (baking and cake decorating), photography, art and sewing. But with all the work with the horses, I have stopped doing the...

    Fat Mini?

    Carly Rae: I'm just curious (not being rude or nosy)-how old are you? It sounds too like you are basically on your own with your little horses? I think finding some kind of equine mentor (adult well educated horse person who is willing to help you learn 'the ropes') would be a tremendous help...

    Jumping?

    Paula is definitely a huge fountain of knowledge for all on this! Great photos and advice. I might also mention there are several DVD's available on training a mini for hunter/jumper. I like Patty Cloke's "Training for Hunter". You can get it online at several mini sites (mine came from Star...

    Miniature Australian Shepards/MAS

    So far, not what I was looking for. And to open a can of worms: you would get a lot of backlash from breeders. The TRUE Mini is not a cross between a Sheltie and an Aussie- just reduced in size from the standards (ie. minis vs. Shetlands in ponies). Though to me- a lot of the toy size DO look...

    Miniature Australian Shepards/MAS

    Who out there has Miniature Australian Shepards or Miniature American Shepards? I'm not totally unfamilar with them; but wanted to hear about some of yours. Different energy levels, temperments, drawbacks and positives. I am just obsessed to own one, but my husband is not sure yet. He has only...

    Driving in Shows - Etiquette and Advice, please.

    We all gotta' start sometime and be 'beginners' or 'first timers'- and we all make mistakes, not just as beginners either. Enjoy! 'Don't sweat the small stuff, and it's all small stuff' in the great scheme of things.

    What are you watching ?

    Well, we only have local channels-no cable available and just not the bucks for 'dish' right now-so ....summer shows are fairly dull here. But our weekly picks are 'America's Got Talent', 'MasterChef', 'Shark Tank' and 'American Ninja Warrior'.
