Hello all,I have been reading the forum for some time and have found great info. I am a very new horse owner, and as with all things i am learning the hard way. I have three horses, (forgive my improper descritions) 2 year old palomino (filly?), yearling paint horse (filly?), and 2 year old palomino gelding who has the HYPP trait, i have not had him tested for the nn/n? result. Just wanted to say hi and thank everyone for all i have learned so far...just beginning i am sure. My horses are not show horses/race horses/i consider them big pets, but do have a realization that they are big and can and have hurt me, but i am figuring that out too. all for now.

Welcome to the Board!

Sounds like you're going to be busy training your horses. Filly is the correct term, btw! A filly is a filly till she turns 4 then she's a mare.

We love pictures. HINT HINT!

We have had the horses for about 1 year. My 2 year old filly had a bad leg injury over the summer (that is healed now) so we have not ridden her, just do some grooming, leading, picking up feet. I bought some books but they were a little over my head, so i bought horses for dummies (ha). We do have lots of people around who will work with us (for $$). I live in Oklahama so there are lots of horse people here, found our vet two blocks from our place, still have not found a farrier i like but am still trying.

Welcome 34me,
Boy do you have your work cut out for you! We will be putting a 3yr gelding under saddle this year and I sure wish the next 3 years were over with. :-)

welcome 34me,
you will learn alot with the crowd here. Remember to use common sense when training your horses, take it in baby steps. Sometimes a well experienced horse can be your best teacher, it also makes learning about horses fun. I am also new to horses within the last couple of years, am training a coming 2 year old filly, but recently bought a been there done that horse who is very kind and forgiving of this greenie.

I have learned alot here, and am looking forward to more. I had an 8 year old mare before i got the gelding, and she was too smart for me, i could not make her do anything, i think she knew she had her bluff in on me. so i "traded" her for the gelding, and he is a sweetie, really calm, and is comfortable with his place in the crowd of the two other girls. i do worry that i am not doing something or doing something i should not. i see new things they do everyday. today they are all out in the pasture pawing the ground?? not sure what that means?

TO POST PICTURES ON THE FORUM
· Open an account at http://photobucket.com
· Click BROWSE on the add pictures screen and upload your picture from your hard drive. This make take some time depending on the size of your picture file
· When the upload is complete right click on the third line down titled “img” then COPY. With my computer I don’t have to highlight, when I right click all of the required file info is highlighted
· Now go to your post on the forum and put the curser where you want the picture.
· Right click, PASTE and you are done.
· Good idea to use preview on forum to check size of the picture. If it is too large go back to photobucket and use the edit function to reduce the size.

Good luck.

What part of OK are you in, 34me? I have a very good friend who lives in Soper, near the TX border, and is an excellent trainer. He specializes in competitive trail and endurance horses, but is an old hand at training horses in general... very knowledgeable.

Welcome! What beautiful horses! They are really good shape for just being babies! You have a fun summer ahead of you! My first really good horse was a nice Skipper W bred palomino gelding. I bought him as a green two year old and had him until he died at age 30 1/2 years! Now that was a GOOD horse! I am lucky enough to have found 2 nice horses to take his place. (See former topics on HAA!) Enjoy your babies!
