I thought since I am new to the forum I would drop a couple pictures of my horse. His name is Gringo. He is out of Dash for Cash lines. I have only had him four months, so we are still adjusting to each other. Thought I would also drop a picture of our first trip to the beach. We went on a poker ride last Sunday. 10 miles of beach riding. He did good.

I wanna beach ride too!

Gringo is a nice looking guy. Of course, I'm just a little partial to red/white tobys. LOL!

Is the other horse a Clyde? It looks like he's got snow boots on.

Splash - No, he's not wet in the first picture. When it's dry out and he's not dirty, he cleans up fairly well. I haven't had a white horse before, I think he's dirty all the time!

PaintGal - The other horse is my dad's horse, he's a Shire. He is a great mellow horse. I almost hate riding with him because everybody wants to stop and talk about him or pet him or take his picture... I guess I take it for granted we have a beautiful big guy out in the field!

Welcome GG from me and my gelding Killian in Alaska! What part of Oregon are you in...right on the coast? There are a few DE members out your way...puddleplasher is in WA...maybe close?

Your ride is a handsome boy...it looks like a fun place to have a poker ride too! Thanks for posting your pictures!

No, I'm not right on the coast. We are along the western edge of the Willamette Valley. About an hour from the coast.

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Being on dial-up, it takes awhile for the pics to come in. So I usually read all the posts before seeing the pics. I should've known PG's referal to "toby" was Paint talk for "tobiano", but I'm a Foundation Appaloosa admirer and immediately thought "Toby" as in Foundation Appaloosa bloodlines <wiping egg off face> .

I like the pic of you and your dad on the beach. Hey PG! If I can ever get you to ride with me to Lake Monroe again, you can ride on a beach. Not a very big one, but it IS a beach .

Oh, hey, I didn't realize you were in the Willamette. A friend went riding at Newhalem Park (?) recently, was that where you and your dad went?

We were in Newport of the south jetty. I think it was just called the South Beach State Park. It is one of the designated areas for horses to ride. The Lincoln County Sheriff's Posse was hosting a poker ride.

I've been there...minus a horse. Beautiful area, and it would be FUN taking the horses there I'm sure!

Welcome to DE. I don't know how I missed a new post with PICTURES! Beach riding looks fun, I think the sight of all that water would give Joe a heart attack.

Cool looking boy!

I have a special soft spot for that line. A good friend had a son of Dash for Cash (named "Cash" oddly enough) about 8 years ago. He had been on the track, didn't quite make it and ended up in Kit and Sandy's barn. He was about 17 hands as a 3 yr old, but so gentle, and a smooth ride... then Kit taught him to cut cows - what a sight! He would drop like a rock in the front and worked so quick that Kit was the only one who could stay solid on him. I rode him a bunch, but only a little on cows; he would SURELY have dumped me before long. It felt like I was a rag doll getting flung around on him.

Cash is in Florida now, and as of last report (about a year ago) had won obscene amounts of money as a barrel racer. Still miss that boy. Hope your Gringo is as memorable.
