Hello! I'm 48 now and I've owned horses most of my life - save a short time during my 1st marriage when we couldn't afford them. I will never be without horses in my life again because I can't afford to live without them!! My 4 horses are listed below, my personal horse is my paint mare Belladonna. I love her to death even though my back's so bad I've only ridden her a few times the entire time I've owned her. Ironically I found her the day my back was hurt! She and I had an instant bond and I went back for her a couple of months later once I had the $$ to purchase.
As for the rest of me: I'm happily married to the love of my life and life time crush...he supports me in my horselife. We have 3 grown kids, and 3 grandkids. We are raising our 5 year old granddaughter Josie. We also have 4 dogs, a cute boy kittie,& chickens. We lost 3 of our elderly pets (6 if you include the fish) during the end of 2009 and it's been tough. Especially knowing I still have a couple more that are aged and could go at anytime...
I did compete in some open shows as a kid but I learned fast I have no desire to compete at anything LOL!! Just not competitive. So my horses are just my babies. :-) When I'm able I love to ride-trail ride, ride around our place & neighborhood and love to night ride! My sis & I grew up sneaking outside at night to ride by the moonlight and we still do it if we get the chance!
I'm not so good at these 'About Me's' so that's about it for now!
