Cairo - My Horse

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Headshot. Her halter plate says "Ho Ling Loy" [which means pretty girl in... some language]. I got her a halter plate because apparently all the cool thoroughbreds have one. I also chopped her mane off, it's more even now, but the scissors I had were crappy. I figured it was time to cut it because she was looking old and saggy with her mane long. I know a lot of people don't care about the mane length... but I think it's kind of untidy...


Good old fashion rest and relaxation... oh yeah.


Just turning around to come see what the heck I'm doing.


When the ADD takes over she takes good pictures.


She's doing the pee-pee dance.


Just us... she's saying "Mooooom... don't take pictures of me." LOL she looks like a midget... but I swear she's tall enough for me...


Just the main barn... we have 18 stalls all together, this is a picture of the first 16. The other two are on a different side. Cairo's stall is to the left with the black rope halter on the door.

She's beautiful. I do like the mane a bit longer though, but it will grow.

Yeah, I cut it. It was longer but she was starting to look like "The old grey mare..." Some horses look great, some don't. Her mane isn't very thick so she just looked... old LOL.

I like the longer mane (and tail I think QH have their tail choped off square for show) The mane is suposed to be shorter like that for shows? or does that matter? I don't show my horse, he can be kind of ...silly he is young and green, was trained for the track, so he hasn't been under saddle for too long. What kind of riding do you do with her? Do you show at all? She looks like a nice little girl, and pretty too, I like that color, I had a white arab, I got her in the winter, but she looked more like your horse in summer by time she shedded out, lol!

Some shows it depends. Most schooling shows [low end] don't require you to braid them, higher end shows like rated shows [A, B, etc.] usually require it but it depends what you're showing. Dressage they braid, Hunters they braid [most of the time] show jumping, not so much.

I ride English primarily, but we do dabble in somes games like Barrel Racing and Pole Bending, nothing serious. I mostly do jumping, I haven't shown her yet we're building up to it, for both of us. I would love to get a little into Dressage, she's supposed to be trained 2nd level, I have yet to see that pop out LOL. I would like to take her to some small shows this summer. I'm not rich enough to do any rated ones.

Thank you I have to say I didn't like greys until I bought her, I find them more appealing now. I really wanted a Chestnut horse... but when I saw her picture online I "got a feeling". It was actually good buying her because she has a good home now as opposed to what she had, and I got in touch with 3 people who owned her... all on a horse forum! It was kind of cool!

Oooo, I love flea-bitten grays!! So cute!!!
She's got a really pretty head.
Is she a QH? She's got butt muscles like a QH.

Get a few dressage books and try it out yourself...I showed my mare at training level once and won the class, just on what we had learned around the barn watching other horses and reading. If she's trained to it, she'll pick it up quick.
Good luck showing her!! She's adorable.

Aww thank you! She's full Thoroughbred. Part of the reason I bought her was her build, she's more stout than really skinny and twiggy [which I like better].

Yeah that's what we're trying to do! It's amazing what you can learn from books!

Thanks for the compliments everyone! We actually went on our first trail ride together on Saturday, and she did great!

That's really the way to go! Owning a horse is expensive! I wish I could take lessons, but I can't afford them right now. You should post pictures of the horse(s) you ride lessons on some time!

Yes she is. Her registered name is Ho Ling Loy [Pretty Little Girl or something]. She's registered with the Jockey Club.

nice my bigger one's are just pleasure riders. But my main miniature stud is hall of fame lined. Not mention he is a silver dapple pinto. But your mare is very pretty i love how you short docked the mane like that. Good luck with her.

You should post pictures sometime!

I've always thought it would be fun to have minis! The barn nextdoor [our barn and the barn next door used to be the same farm, but was sold] the woman breeds minis.

Here's one she's selling:

Not the best picture [he's a lot more adorable in person]. Anyway, I like miniatures, I think it would be fun to do driving.

Thanks! When her mane is long she looks like "the old grey mare who ain't what she used to be" so I keep it trimmed.

Here's a couple of recent pictures:

Wow, amazing price for a colored buckeroo liner. I'll talk to troy lol i'd love to add lines like that to my breeding. Pics coming asap hehe, he's about 3mons old so just weaned and he's double registered. His father has nice halter points and good value.

Troy wants more mares because my one is getting older and her last foal will be in 07 or 08 i just bred her back to Coppers father. His registered name is MDM's Cool Copper (aka Copper).

Your mare has nice strides hope she's working out good for you.
