    Hi there, I'm pretty new to this forum and have noticed that there are always a few people viewing the horse topics but hardly any posting so i thought i'd just try and find out any many of you keep horses/ponies, what do you have and what do you do with them???
    I'll start - I'm Adele i have a black 17yr old Fell mare called Misty who despite her age is totally bonkers i just hack, jump and have fun but my friends daughter takes her to shows and always brings back a rosette! I also have a grey 21yr old Arab x Welsh called Kaylee who is my daughters pony she just hacks, also we have Little Meg our aged bay Dartmoor x Shetland (we think), we have had her for nearly 9yrs!.

    I used to have a 7 year old Morgan mare called Allie on loan but then we moved and the owner wouldn't let us take her. Yours are lovely.

    I have Kane a 15.3hh Irish cob. He's around 9 years old and the love of my life. He's not a 'safe cob' or a novice ride but he's everything I ever wanted in a horse and I'm grateful for everyday of having him. I had to wait until I was 35 before getting my own horse which is why I think 5 years on I still can't get over the fact I finally have one!!:D

    I have a 12yr piebald mare called Magpie. I have taken her to a couple of shows and we mainly did showing but i'm now getting my own trailer and i'm getting really in to dressage now so i'll be doing a lot of dressage nxt Spring. I don't own her but i pay to look after her at the wkend and a monday and tuesday- kinda like on shared loan! I love her so much and when i first started lookin after her (bout 18months ago) she couldn't jump at all (well she could do trotting poles) and now 18 months on shes clearing 2ft 3"! Also she didn't no how to canter (she had been a racing trotter) and once again 18 months l8er shes bursting in to canters with just the slightest touch of the reins and legs!! I love her sssoooo much and she is my world! Ur horses look lovely and so do every1 elses! I luv u so much Mags :001_wub: ! U r a star!! Xx
