What's the point?

I have always wondered why people buy animals when they don't have the patience to take proper care of them. Thousands of perfectly good horses are slaughtered and euthanized each year due to seizures of these animals. A good source for information on this problem and tips on proper care and maintenance is Horse Haven of Tennessee, http://www.horsehaven.net/

Brrrr!

It's getting cold outside. Don't forget to cover any exposed pipes or hoses leading to your watering trough so your water doesn't freeze within the pipes.

Neighbor's Horse

This beautiful paint belongs to a neighbor. Last year, he produced a lovely foal. Maybe we'll see another one this year! You never know...

Introduction

Hello, my name is Juli and this is my first post. I am presently an online student of the University of Phoenix, so I can't afford a horse of my own at this time. However, I love horses and hope to have one of my own some day. I have taken English and Western riding lessons and still have a lot to learn, so I greatly admire the hard work that many people have put in training and conditioning their horses for show and pleasure. I go to horse shows and events as often as I can, and I always take along a video/snapshot camera! I try to leave human faces out of the pictures unless I have permission to leave them in. My favorite horse breed is the Friesian stallion, and my favorite discipline is Freestyle Dressage. My dream is to some day view the famous Vienna Lippizaner stallions in action while they display the art of dressage in such fluid style and grace that emulates the beauty of ballet. However, I find all horses and riding styles absolutely fascinating. Thank you ahead of time for all your contributions in free photos and video supplied by Google. Happy riding!
