Hello, I posted about the Mustangs but wanted to introduce myself so ya'll know who you're talkin' to...

I'm Loree, and we live in Paulden ( with my hubby of 7 years and 2 daughters and one baby on the way), AZ right now, but are planning our dream of moving to Montana in April, we can't wait:O)
We have three horses right now, Choncho was our first horse. We got him from a *horse trader* as I call this guy. Choncho was a 2y/o stud colt that had been left in a stall his whole life. I had met Choncho a year earlier as dh and I would take the long way home and look at horses. Here was this beautiful chestnut Appaloosa that was SKINNY as all git out. I would make dh take me to see if he was putting on weight, and he eventually did, and I kinda forgot about him. Then a guy came to buy a car we had for sale, he wanted to trade me a truck but we already had 2, then he tells me that he's got a stud colt...SOLD!!! is what I told him, sight unseen!! We go to see our new guy and low and behold, it's that skinny App;O) The day we brought him home was bitter-sweet...he had never been loaded, the guy was in a hurry, and of course the guy had to have mares right next to where he told us to park the trailer. Well, long story short, I would have been in tears if my girls had not been there, and by the time this *guy* got him loaded, my boy was on his back with all four feet in the air thrashing around the trailer, but I'll tell ya, my boy backed out like a true champion!!!
When we had him gelded we find out why his tongue hangs out...he has NO bottom teeth in front and never will. The guy told us that Choncho had pulled ONE tooth out when he bit a fence as a youngster, well it turned out that the guy wanted a *spotted* baby sooooo bad that he put Choncho in with a couple mares and they kicked his teeth out and when I had seen this horse was when he was in pain and couldn't eat...talk about feeling guilty...But, he still got to come home:O)
Sorry to write a book on Choncho, whatta guy he is. Rebel is our little pony guy that we rescued (or talked into taking;) from a horrible home. I love the Choncho but Rebel is so neat to work with, unlike the Chonch who still pushes back;)
And our only mare (not sure if I like'em either;O) is Suzi Mae, who is a 6 y/o reservation mare. She came to us after being bought at the auction. I am having a tough time getting through to her that I will not hurt her. She's not mean as in kicking or biting, she's just VERY shy. My hubby wanted to give her away but I refuse to give up on this wonderful girl because she's not *easy* (might be a fun move to MT with this one;) We make progress, just not fast.
Anyhoo, sorry to write a book. I enjoy learning things everyday, even if it's just watching the little herd in the pasture and learning by watching. Glad to be here.

Welcome to the Board!

Sounds like Choncho is really lucky to be out of the situation he was in. Poor guy sure had a rough start. Is he able to graze?

You certainly have your hands full with all 3 of them and skinkids and one on the way! When are you due?

(wavin' back) It is great to be here and ya'll are just so nice!!! Thanks for the welcome.

Choncho did have it rough but what a wonderful young man he has turned into, we're proud of him...we just need to get back to driving him. He can graze really well actually, kinda like a cow, with his top teeth and tongue, but he is the low man and Suzi just HATES him. I'm hoping when we start working him more, his confidence level will go up, he towers over the other horses, but follows his pony guy to find out what *horses do*, poor guy has no clue:O)
I go to the doc on Thursday but will probably be due sometime in October...we hope it's a little cowboy...we got 2 cowgirls;O)

Welcome to the board, Loree. Sounds like your herd is growing from several different angles! Choncho will get it all figured out with the socialization skills before long. I'm glad he came to you as he did. Wow, Montana! One of the states I'm dying to visit someday.

Welcome Arizona!
Great story. Lucky horses to have you!
Wow, what a climate change from AZ to Montana!
We actually have rain in S Cal, started last night...probably on it's way to you!
Have never heard of your town, what area in AZ are you located?

Howdy Horsecrazygirl!! I have always wanted to go back east and see the green and trees, a lot different from here in the west. Surprisingly, Montana has major altitude changes, some as low as you:O) But yes, snow, snow, snow...I love it!!

I really don't know AZ real well, but my parents(mom & step-dad) live in Sun City. Is that anywhere near your neck of the woods?

I, too, am glad that you have Concho, poor guy. I have a passion for Appaloosas and an into foundation Appaloosas, myself. If you're interested in them, too, feel free to check out www.foundationapp.com .

I really feel for Concho. When my Appaloosa gelding W.T. was a two year old, he was in the process of losing his middle incisors... baby teeth. As most of us know, this is normal at this age. Well, I noticed a day or two earlier he had just lost one of the upper ones when I had him on the cross ties in the middle of the aisleway where I was boarding at the time. I know better, now, but I hadn't had much experience with cross ties at the time. So, when I was ready to bridle W.T., I dropped the halter off his nose and placed in around his neck while both cross ties were still snapped to it. I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but W.T. lost his footing on the concrete flooring of the aisleway, went down on his knees, and bopped his nose straight down on the floor! Scared me to death! That's when I noticed blood dripping out of his mouth and a tooth laying on the floor. I checked his mouth, and sure enough, he'd knocked out the other middle upper incisor! I felt so sorry for him for the next few days at feeding time. He'd look at his grain, give off this big, heavy sigh, and turn to his hay. Oh, he'd eat his grain, since I always found the grain box empty, but I know it had to be difficult.

Hope you enjoy my little story, and a big welcome to.

Hello Budman!! Tucson is down south of us, we are about in the middle of the state, maybe 50 miles southwest of Flagstaff, in the *desert mountains* (oxymoron??)
Thanks for the welcome!!!

You will have to visit some day, Appygirl, tis a most beautiful place!! Do you have Apps (dumb question, huh;)? I forgot to add that the pic of the snowcap App mare is a girl we rescued but didn't have her long. She ended up with a distended bowel and we had to put her down. The short time we had that girl, I really fell in love with her (she had been bred to the point of worn out, poor girl)
I added a few pics to my album too, a better one of Choncho, he used to have a tail to the ground before Rebel got it;O)
Any pics of your horse/horses?

Thank you, Fracturedbones (dare I ask;) I like playing in the snow better then playing with tumble weeds;O) We were supposed to get the rain ya'll are getting, but it seems to have fizzled out crossing the border, dern it!!
We live in the central mountains of AZ, about 150 miles north of Phoenix.

Welcome!! from Wisconsin.
You will like this board. Great people here. Great place to get good advice. Your horses sound great. You sound like a great person to give them the special attention they need. There are so many horses that don't get that. I to am a sucker for the needy. Just today I was on one of my little driving arends for work when I seen a man standing on the corner holding a sign (WILL WORK FOR FOOD) it was about 7:15 am, cold out and not a very nice day to stand outside. I had no work for him and not a penny in my pocket. Wished I could have done something.
But any way. Welcome

I whisper but my horse don't listen.

Hello,
I have posted a few messages but haven't formally introduced myself. My name is Cheyanne, I live in South Alabama and breed and raise Registered Paints and Quarter horses. I have one stallion standing and a 2 mares, I am looking for another stallion, prefferably a grulla tobiano or a Dun overo. So far I've enjoyed the site and like the posts, seems like there is a lot going on around here lol. I do have a question though..how can I get a pic to post on my profile page when I want to post a message. I've seen a lot of members with pics in their message posts and I'd like to put on of my Tobiano stallion up but can't seem to get it to work. I'm pretty good with computers, but this has me stumped! Can someone help me? THANKS!

· 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 cursor 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.

Thank you for the invitation, Arizona. I'm hoping to visit Montana and other westerly states sometime before I depart this planet for the netherworld.

I own one app, Hi-Grey; he's a few spot lepoard. Since I board him out, I only have him. He is the best trail horse I've ever ridden.

Thank you Hook, I appreciate the help. I'll see if I can get it to work today, I hope everyone didn't think I was rude with the no intro...I just got so into the forum posts I didn't think about anyone not knowing a darn thing about me lol. Just to give you a little more info about me other than my horses, I have a miniature Shnauzer named Bailey (Due to have pups soon) and a Yorkie named Dixie and 2 cats, Trouble and C.C. Married to a great guy works out of state in construction so it feels more like a long distance relationship sometimes lol, but we manage. We live in South Alabama, but hope to move out of the area by the end of the year, economy here has really taken a down hill spiral. I want Texas but he doesn't...Montana is gorgeous Appygirl, but darn the winters. Southern blood would freeze up in 5 minutes lol. We've talked about Florida since we're not far from the state line. But where ever we go it has to be where the horses and others can go, I'm not parting with my 4 legged children! Thanks again Hook for the help on the photos. Have a great week everyone!
