Our Horses (and Stuff about Horses)

Horses have always been the love of my life (after my husband)! I grew up with them doing everything from trail riding to halter, pleasure, jumping and performance competitions. Then I joined the Army, later found a good job in the suburbs, and settled down to do the domestic thing. I never forgot or lost interest and 20 years later here we are, back in the country. I had to have a horse again. One turned into two and two made three, then four, and who knows how many more may grace our pastures...

Our gelding Junior
Jr Docs Dbl Three, 3/15/1999, Sorrel QH Gelding
AQHA #3845268

Junior was our first Foundation Quarter Horse bought after moving here. After all you can't put horses on a 1/4 acre in the suburbs! I fell in love with Junior when I saw him. He was a stallion with a wonderful nature, but we have since gelded him. He loves Howard best, as Howard is always sneaking him treats, but never riding him!

Carmels Lil Gale, 4/21/1998, Sorrel QH Mare

Horses are like Lays potatoe chips, you can't have just one! I had a stud and needed a mare. I looked for a foundation mare, but came across Carmel first. This is one gorgeous alpha mare with lots of personality and terrific on trails. We have built a strong, trusting relationship. You can see more of her here Carmel's Page

Horse Worming

I keep a chart on my desk provided from Safe-Guard for easy reference for what to use and when. My "Mr Vet" is in agreement with this. However, I have seen articles in horse magazines and on the Internet that recommend NOT worming so often as this may build up a resistance. Here is an excellent link for more info on worms and wormer active ingredients: HorseTalk
