FYI----working on it

I sent an email to the Dis Moderator Team: keeping fingers crossed

Hi there I had started a thread to ask fellow Dissers that own horses a question. I had done the same thing last year. Well one thing led to another and an idea seems to be brewing to take off. Is it possible to get a forum for us that own & love horses that are here on the Disboards? We all have other sites re-horses, their care, place to ask & answer questions, post pictures of our babies but our true common denominator is our love of Disney of course. I mean Walt Disney himself loved and shared his life with a few of these noble animals himself. Is it possible? There are other forums for lifestyle groups and this is our lifestyle. If the answer is no, could you at least help me. I don't know how to edit the thread to read the new intention, thanks so much,
Ruthie Luvchefmic

Don't know if you've seen this..

This has been on my refrigerator for so many years (in too many houses) that its now faded...not pushing my religious beliefs just thought I'd share as it always gives me a lump in my throat (and is my serious motivation to go out and muck when it feels like 1,000 degrees out there )


Dearest Creator in Heaven

Give me strength to guide my horse
Make my hands soft and my head clear
Let my horse understand me and I him
My heart you have blessed with a special love of these animals
Let me never lose sight of it
My soul you have gifted with a deep need for them
Let that need never lessen
Always let my breath catch as the sun gleams on an elegant head
Always may my throat tighten at the sound of a gentle nicker
Let the scent of fresh hay and a new bag of grain be sweet to me
Let the touch of a warm nose on my hand always bring a smile
The grace and splendor of a running horse
The thunder of its hooves makes my eyes burn and my heart soar
Let it always be so
Dearest Creator grant me patience, for horses are harnessed wind, and wind
can be flighty
Let me not frighten or harm them
Instead show me ways to understand them
Above all, Dear Creator, fill my life with them
When I pass from this world, send my soul to no heaven without them, for this love you have given me graes my existence and I shall cherish it and Praise you for it for all time

I'm horse crazy too. I truly believe horses are God's apology for men.

Post your horse photos!

Here's my 25 year old mare (used to be a 5 gaited show horse!)

My particular favorite horse phrase: "To make a small fortune in the horse business, start with a large one."

Sometimes I wonder about God's sense of humor. He took a 1200lb animal and stuck it on 4 spindly little tooth-pick legs! It sure is purty though ain't it?

On the plus side, I've got several students in contention for year end awards at the show series we attend. On the minus side, I promised any of them who WON a high point year end award that I would buy them a saddle! Every time we come home from a show, DH nervously asks "Did anybody win today?" Next show is mid-August...pray for less heat!

We are having record heat waves here in New Orleans, Louisiana.

So for my horses I put out the sprinklers for them to enjoy!
And they love it!!!






(These pictures were taken last year during another heat wave.
My sweet Appaloosa mare Pahsu is in them. Sadly I lost my sweet girl in April. She loved the sprinklers.)

Wow....

Been trying to catch up with reading the posts, which is a great thing! Now if the horse people that are lurking in "the Disboard Barn" (based on the number of views the thread has gotten) will come on in, sit down on a bale of hay, and join us we will definitely have something here
I'll put the coffee on !

so..
Poppinsme

I remember when you lost Pahsu so sorry the pictures are great they look like they love those sprinklers

Jennasis

26 horses! Sorry about the latest injury, hope you don't go into shock if you end up buying a bunch of winning saddles (but think of the bragging rights!)

Wildernesslodgelover

Oh for goodness sake, I thought we recently "met" and then were talking about going to Chef Mickeys together and then when I read your horses names it came to me. I remember seeing the thread when you got Bruno and we voted on the name. Love it! You need to post the pictures of them here in case anyone missed them...so cute!

MichelleVW

I love that I've seen pictures of Ivan (Maxine's long distance boyfriend we call him ) and Skippy hope you share them here too

Dax Poinciana is very close to Polk City...you won't be able to resist once I post Maxines picture too...just sayin'

Dee & Greg

Beautiful !
That's all I can remember right now....really need coffee myself

You live in Florida right? 30 minutes from Disney? Just wondering why you blanket your horse? I assume, based on the length of his hair and the status of the trees in the background that it's winter in this photo. I can't imagine it gets cold enough anywhere in Florida that would necessitate a horse being blanketed (or sheeted...it actually looks like a sheet).

This is my girl. It's not the most flattering picture. She's really very pretty. She's curvy like a girl should be. I'll have to get out and take some more of her. She's a sweetheart. I never wanted a mare, but she has changed my mind about that.
