Good evening everyone! Confession time, I do a lot of lurking when I am at work, but no intro thread is complete without pics, which I cant do from there, so it has waited until a quiet evening. :)

So my sister and I have a herd of 5, but she has her special boy and I have mine, so introducing Cow, who is now 8 and have owned him since 18 months old. Had a bit of a slow start, then 2 winters of complete stop due to illness, then injury, but going great guns atm. I love desssage, he thinks its boring and jumps for fun, so we do a bit of everything and have a fab time!

Now I have said hello, I can post a bit more from the office. :D




And who buys anything with white bits...he really does think he is funny!!

Welcome to NR :D

Cow looks lovely and yep, more fool you on having one with white bits ;) :p I stick to dark colours for exactly that reason :p

Hi and welcome and well done for providing pics on your first post :D Hope you're going to introduce us to the rest of your herd later.

Cow looks like he can turn his hand to anything, lovely horse. I have a grey so can sympathise, however did you get him so white in that first pic - his tail is amazing!

Thanks all! I can talk about horses all day and anywhere with like minded people is a good place to be! :D

And as to how white he gets...all of once a month ish when i do dressage, blue shampoo and wash x3!! Though i think I cheated for that pic and had clipped him the week before. :)

As to the rest of the herd, there is Moomin, who is rising 5 and was my spare horse when Cow was broken last winter!


And Pig, who was the first one I broke in, but at only 14.3hh was really a bit small. He now has a fab sharer who loves him to bits!

Lovely horses, all gorgeous and great photos of Cow (what a name!) but Pig is the one for me!

I have a grey too so I feel your pain...

Moomin is a complete superstar! Got him as an unhandled 4 year old end of august 2016, would have won his first w/t in december if i hadnt made an error or course and other than the pain of teaching him to lead properly (he is a big lad!) has basically been foot perfect!

To give you some idea this is his first jump over any ditch.


He is still growing so has had a quiet few months. My sister is going to try him eventing next year if the ground doesnt get too hard.

Then we have my sister daft TB X. He got far too big, was supposed to be 16.2, he ended up over 17.2 and he does have a screw loose SJing, which is a shame.


And finally the broken grey thing, Dim. Good job he is cute!


You did ask to see them all! :)
