Here are our "biggies":

This is Sheba, she is a registered paint, but breeding stock only since she is solid (both her babies were black & white overos). She is 10 years old and about 15.1hh. She is the horse my 13 year old rides regularly.



This is Lacey, she is a registered paint and is 5 years old and also about 15-15.1hh. We bought her to show, but shortly thereafter she injured her shoulder so her future is uncertain at this time, but we are hopeful. She is on 90 days pasture rest for healing right now. (yes, my daughter realizes that her heels are not down in the picuture, but they were once she entered the arena and she won 1st!)



Here is one of Sheba and our mini, Image with my 13 year old and 9 year old.



I'd love to see pictures of you big horses!

Well I had 5 biggies but sold one for sure and have a second sale pending she passes her vet check. Here are my biggies:

This is my 10 year old arabian mare, SPH Phancyphire, ridden by 13 year old Antonina.



This is my 9 year old arabian mare, Contessa Angelina. Ridden by 20 year old Adam.



This is my husbands 5 year old arabian mare, SPH Sameera Sunnphire ridden in all 3 pictures by 20 year old Adam.







This is a group photo of all 3 arabians above plus the arabian mare, SPH Phancy Melody, who is sale pending. She is the chestnut arabian mare.

Here is one of my fathers Tennessee Walking Horse mares, the big horses are more dads things. She has put on a ton of weight since we bought her, still a work in process but she was so underweight when she came here in the spring. He recently sold her full brother, he was a really nice boy, i liked him allot.

Here's our biggies:

My first horse, pintaloosa mare Sugar (not sure why I named her Sugar as she's FAR from sweet, typical moody mare! lol
) (She's on the left)



The other guy in the above picture and below is my big hunk
AQHA Zippos Rowdy Rodder, sired by IMA Flashy Hotrod (full brother to Radical Rodder), making my guy a grandson of Hotrodder's Jet Set.. His dam is a grand daughter of the great Zippo Pine Bar
My guy is huge, not sure how tall he is now, need to measure him, but while he's huge he is the biggest baby/love bug ever.. He loves to give hugs, wrap your arms around his neck and he'll set his head/neck down over your shoulder
He was green broke to ride but with me being away at college I was bad and let his training slip
but now that I'm working and making decent money I plan to have it picked back up hopefully this spring




Gotta love the big QH booty







This is my sister's old man Paco, recently aged 20+ and still going strong except for a little arthritis in a front leg, but still rideable.. I tease my sister we should have called him Tank as he's a big boy, you can tell he's a heavy muscled boy and I bet back in his glory days he looked like a body builder




All three:

This is Callie, his girlfriend and Skippy.

This is Billy and our very first Quarter Horse. She was the very first horse owned and was our "been there, done that" horse that taught us what showing was all about.

I only have a biggy, but I have always been interested in minis because my friend (New Mini Owner) has two. So here is my APHA 9 year old paint gelding (former herd stallion who was only gelded 4 months ago!) He is my first horse. I have ridden english my whole life and Comanche is a western horse. I hope in the spring to have him trained in english. So here he is my "biggy" Comanche...







And this is our first time jumping
(I know my position is really bad and I am in a dressage saddle, but we are both learning)

Here are a few pictures of our biggies. We breed and show Percherons also.

The first one is of our National Champion Gelding at a show.



This one is at a plow days having fun.



This one is one of our momma's and her 3 days old filly.



This is of one of our foals right after he stood, it is at 3 in the morning so I look a little tired.



And this was in a cart class.

This is my big mule (16hh) Cleo. She's only green broke but so far is willing to do anything I ask of her.



This is Stardust, a registered paint mare, 15.3hh. She's the sweetest bombproof girl.



Cheval is an Pintabian but she isn't registered. Non-horsey hubby fell in love with her and the feeling seemed to be mutual so we bought her.

You all have beautiful horses...we used to raise paint horses but are down to only five left.

Otis was our APHA and PtHA stallion but he was gelded for my sister to show and has done very well. (hopefully she never will see that I posted this picture she is trying to get me to take it off the website
, but I like it cuz its cute!)



This is my APHA mare Ruby, she was born in 1999 and her dad is Otis. She was being broke to ride really well and I broke her myself and then my parents sent her to a trainer to be finished and I dont know what they did to her but when she got back she was a freak and didnt trust anyone. She is getting better but it is taking a while.



My mare that I can actually ride now is Sophie and she is APHA and PtHA and I have only shown her at one show so far and she got 2nd place out of 9 horses in her english class.



We also have a broodmare Scribbles and her 2004 gelding but I dont have pictures of them yet.

My joke is that my "big" horse is about 14.3 - but a perfect size for me. He is Target, a 23 year old Pinto gelding who the farm is named after. He has had 2 colic surgeries in 1998 and 2001 that removed a total of 30 feet (that's half!) of his small intestines and left him with a pretty poor prognosis. But he went back to the show ring after the surgeries and completed his Amateur Pinto Championship in 2003, the same year we moved him home. He is turned out 24/7 which I think contributes to his longevity. This was taken after his second surgery. He was shown Western, English, and dressage and is pretty much retired now. He loves all the minis from his side of the fence.

Our QH mare Surprise.... used to show her years ago. She hasn't been ridden in almost 10 years. Living the good life now at 20 years old.



And our 4 year old QH gelding The Last Captive son, Last Detail grandson on sires side and Mr. Moxie Man on the dams side. He's about 16.2 now(his sire is 16.3). Moxie is an unbelievable mover. I have wanted a Last Captive baby for a long time. Found Moxie on Dream horse and bought him when he was a yearling. He hasn't been trained under saddle yet, but it's a dream of mine.

Awwww, thanks. I wasn't in the market for a horse when I first saw her. She was probably about a year old and a friend of mine had brought her back from a Wisconsin auction to resell. I definitely wasn't looking for a young horse, but I just had to have her when I saw her. She has turned out great. Here is one of my favorite photos of her. Her first time in blinders.
