No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle. ~Winston Churchill

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears. ~Arabian Proverb

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon

To ride a horse is to ride the sky. ~Author Unknown

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. ~Author Unknown

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it. ~Author Unknown

Again the early-morning sun was generous with its warmth. All the sounds dear to a horseman were around me - the snort of the horses as they cleared their throats, the gentle swish of their tails, the tinkle of irons as we flung the saddles over their backs - little sounds of no importance, but they stay in the unconscious library of memory. ~Wynford Vaughan-Thomas

She is a beauty and a sweetheart to boot! She is a 3rd generation, and we are looking to getting her bred this winter....she is a percheron which is a draft horse, she's big, over 1800 pounds, but even bigger in heart! I just love her!

Isn't she gorgeous!!!! I just have to see your place now. I'm hooked. What height is she Rae? Looks around at least 16 hands on the wither. Percherons are such neat horses and they're great to ride too. Hey thanks for your comment on the wildlife.com blog. I'm still setting it up got to add in all our blogs onto it as well.

The flower photos are just gorgeous. Clever you!!!

Yeah she is 16 hands or more...dont know for sure. I know she is fat and doesnt like to get her feet trimmed or anything like that! LOL Her feet were in bad shape so she has been getting some work done on them, and her favorite thing to do is try to lay down on our farrier! LOL she is a brat and a big baby, so gentle, but she is a biggie!
