Cool photos :)

Whats his name ? He looks too nice to be referred to as a knob :)

What sort of showing did you do with him ?

Love his name "Jed".

Love riding down the beach - So much Fun :) ( especially when the dolphins swim up to you, though the first time I thought it was a shark and just about fell off) hahahaha

Love the beach pic! 

I've never had the opportunity to ride on the beach (ocean) since becoming an adult that can remember.  Parents say that we rode on the beach in Hawaii a few times, though, when I around 8 yrs old...

You make me wish I could deal w/ another "knob"...  for riding.

Do you still ride Paula ?

Hows Jed coming along Rocklone ? ( if its ok to ask , whats your name) ? I feel rude referring to you as your stables name.

Is the beach local to you ? I have to drive about 20 mins but its certainly worth the drive.

It's Hayley :)

He's doing amazing. He's had a bit of a sore shoulder so I've been giving him massages.

Pula why don't you go for a trail ride some day?

I haven't ridden since my go to horse passed away at 27 years old in 2010 (well, maybe once or twice since then), but I still have two green broke saddle horses that enjoy being pasture puffs.  We have the pasture, so they might as well be pasture puffs with the way the market is.
Anyway, I'll share pics of all three.
Cheddar my heart horse, palomino half-Arab gelding; he was my first horse, got him when he was three, so I had him for 24 years.  [I don't have many good pics on my computer, as he was in his twenties for the last batch of pics.]
Hayley is my APHA breeding stock mare and Rebel is my AQHA gelding; they are half-siblings out of the same AQHA mare (Hayley by a near-white APHA stallion and Rebel by an Appendix quarter horse stallion).  Hayley is the one saddled.  All pictures are probably 6-7 years old.

Haaahaahaaahaaahaa Chanda!! Cheddar looks like he has a smiling milk mustache!! How appropriate for a Cheddar--made from milk. ROFL

I like Hayley's "knob" too. If someone I knew had a schoolmaster Jeb in my area, I might risk getting back into it as well. My body remembers how, I'm positive. I have too many dreams where I can "feel" myself riding a movement at sitting trot, or that weightless moment over a jump, then the jar before cantering off upon landing. :'-(  My lupus causes me to not trust my balance---so I decided on minis to keep my horsey dreams alive.
