    I'm very nosey :baby04: So I thought it would be fun to look at other people's horses. Because if every one just post a picture here and there no one can just go and look at them. So I'll go first. This is Berry Wonderful my 4yr old Haflinger gelding.

    Here's my newest family member, Annie. She's a 15-year old Shetland/mini cross. Not a very good pic, looks like she has an awesomely large roman nose which she really does not, but:

    And Quetzel my 10 year old donkey, Ted the welsh/hackney yearling, and JoJo my 18-year old quarter horse:

    And last but not least, my barn hand, who was 3 in the pic, is 6 now;):

    Bergere, your Fjord mare is awesome! :)

    I would looooove to own a Fjord; sadly, in my area, they are $$$$$$$$$! Even unbroke ones go for $2000. Getting a road-safe one would probably cost me more than my car did! ;)

    Oh well, maybe someday.......

    Love all the pics! I hope everyone posts their horses, I would love to see them too.

    We have several different "types" ... now all more or less under the general label of "sportpony" ... but everything from purebred Welsh and Connemara to "smallish" warmblood crosses.

    Thanks DD,, my fjord mare really is a sweet heart.
    Keep an eye out, sometimes there are very nice fjord for sale for good prices.
    Your ponies and donkey all look really nice. Well taken care of. Love your donkey's ears!
    Your barn hand is quite adorable.

    SFM.. your ponies are out standing as always. Have a very good sport pony progam going there. :dance:

    Lisa, those are some very pretty Quarter horses.

    Kate, HP looks great!
    Here is my goofy Paint, Mingus. He looks small in the picture, but he is 16.1H.
    That's his oft abused fly mask in the background. He loses everything!

    His cleanness is an illusion. You woudn't want Mingus. He is the original Dennis The Menace horse. He can take automatic waterers apart in seconds flat for the sheer pleasure of flooding barns, he steals things and buries them, he's always up to no good. But I've raised him since he was born and he's my bad boy. He's fun to ride too. He snorts, prances, arches his neck and gives the impression that he's always about to explode, but it's an act. I think he does it to make me look like a really great rider. He is really a Momma's boy. :p

    It is so neat to see everyone's equine, I love the donkeys, esp. the darker colored ones for some reason.
    LisaInN.Idaho, I sent you a PM.

    Lisa, I can't believe that you, too, have a horse named Mingus! Here is our Mingus, part of our "jazz trio" of minis...

    Woodwinds' Mingus (named for the late jazz bassist, Charles Mingus) is a 6-year-old maxi-mini gelding, just under 38 inches, a rescue who blossomed into quite the show horse and a total character. Mingus knows he's beautiful, and loves to strike a pose for anyone who will admire him. I'm ground-driving him in preparation for driving training (driver's ed?)

    Here he is doing his warmblood imitation...but he really is a mini...

    Thelonius (named after the late great jazz pianist,Thelonius Monk) came from the Oregon State Veterinary Surgery program, and endured a tracheotomy, a liver biopsy, and an abdominal scope before a friend of ours adopted him. Her other minis would not accept him, so he came to be Mingus' best friend. After a parade, while surrounded by a sea of children, Thelonius pulled me over to a quadraplegic woman in a wheelchair and lay his head in her lap.

    Our 2-year-old colt, Pastorius (named for Weather Report bassist Jaco Pastorius), also known as the Horse Whimperer, as he actually whimpers waiting for his grain. He is very mommy-bound, and he tells me he wants to compete in halter-obstacle so that his buddies don't laugh when he sticks by my side.
