I would love to see pics of my fellow horse lover's horsey buddies! I know there's a few on here, so come on cowgirls/cowboys, post some pics!

These are my babies, Jake and Saltry. Jake is the dapple gray appaloosa, he is turning 19 on April Fools day (tomorrow!), he was diagnosed with arthritis 2 years ago and has since been retired, but I used to do everything with him, from dressage and hunter/jumper to rodeo, we won numerous championships together, and he helped me win Rodeo Queen at the Kodiak Rodeo and State Fair in 2005. Saltry is the palomino, he is no longer with us, he was 28 years old when we lost him to colic a little more than 2 years ago. RIP Saltry, he was a fabulous horse, sweet, gentle, kind, and versatile. He will always hold a place in my heart, as he was our first horse. Here's some of my favorite pictures of them, and I really want to see pictures of the other horsey members around here!

Jake running through the pasture, he looks pretty scruffy cause he has his winter coat


Saltry running through the pasture. It always gets muddy here after the snow thaws in the spring...


Me riding Jake, my sister on Saltry, getting ready to go for a summer trail ride


My sister and I at the rodeo. 2006, I think?


Jake and I took a purple ribbon (basically the same as first place) in the English Bareback Equitation class for the 4-H horse show, I think this was 2005?


Jake and I taking a fence in 4-H classes, this was probably about 6-7 years ago, I think I was in intermediate classes at the time, so the fence was pretty easy... lol

Jake and I, when I won Rodeo Queen in 2005. :)


Thanks for looking, share some of your pictures too please! :)

Yay! Keep 'em coming! Hurry up, GTR, I'm bored at work and need some more eye candy in the equine form! lol

Shes Got Heart-- It's so hard when we lose a best friend, someone who held so much of our hearts... I still miss my Saltry to this day, but our loved ones are now in greener pastures... :) And hey, we have the same name! Except mine is Meaghan... lol

This was my big guy Claudio. Jockey Club Reg Thoroughbred, 16 hands high. He had a neurological disease and had to be put to sleep. :(

YouTube - In memory of Claudio
:( :( :( Thats so sad... For such bold, beautiful, spirited creatures... life is still so fragile.

Alright, I'll load up some pics!

Thank you all for your kind words on my Claudio. I had him just shy of 1 year. It was very sad to let him go. But I do remember all of the good times we had together. And I cherish those very much. He was a really great horse. He was very spirited for his age! He could keep up with all of the young horses! lol He also loved putting his riders to the test! The girl I bought him from said she'd never seen him take to anyone like he took to me besides herself. That made me feel really great to hear. I could see it in him too when I let friends ride him. Me and him had a special bond. He was everything I ever dreamed of having in my first horse. I hope to have another off the track TB some day. They make the best horses!

NO worries, she definitely has the Appendix look with those legs. :)

Oh I love the drafts!! <3

I am loving all these pics! I especially love Taff's action shot!

Jake looks AWESOME in that hunt bridle too. I bet he was an impressive dressage mount. ^^

He definitely was! I had only started dressage with him, but he's such an animated mover that it made for some beautiful moves. We believe he has some Arabian in him, he always holds his tail and head high and prances... lol. And Lady Kate is quite the looker! Beautiful girl! I want to see the appy spots on Thunder though... Loooove me some appy's! :)

All of these horses are simply beautiful! I had a horse, many moons ago, but don't have his/our pix uploaded onto photobucket :( I also have a pix of my mom and her b/f at the time, when she was 8 mos pregnant with me, riding barefoot and bareback, lol. I'll have to hook up my scanner (haven't even opened the box yet) and upload all those pix so I can share in this one too. I miss my boy Tanto.
