He is pure air and fire; and the dull elements of earth and water never appear in him, but only in patient stillness while his rider mounts him. He is indeed a horse, and all other jades you may call beasts.

Hi. I've been a member for a few weeks now, but never bothered to post, although I've been reading most entries. :D

I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada, and I have two horses, who are boarded in a friend's barn about 5 minutes away, with their four horses.

My horses are Daybreak 'Breaker', a 3.5 year old Morgan/Appaloosa cross gelding. He's a palomino with polka dots, that have started to creep over his withers and up his neck.

The new (to me) horse is an APHA mare, Jagadoll. She's 25 years young, in decent overall health, other than having some teeth issues. At one point in her life, she sold for $30,000.00 US.

I just got her three days ago, someone had her for their teenage daughter but she stopped caring about having a horse. So basically she was being ignored, out back. We go to visit, to meet her, and were appalled. She was kept in nothing more than a shack, has no access to water while inside the barn, was getting no hay (supposedly because of her teeth) and the only food she was receiving was less than 2 cups of mashed alfalfa cubes and water. For the whole day. She's underweight, and dehydrated, but otherwise okay. We've gotten her on a senior pellet and beet pulp, along with very soft dampened hay, and she's doing GREAT on it. Eating like it's going to go out of style. Poor old girl.

Anyway, enough yapping. Here's some pics!

  • welcome! I'm the constatly unavalible and hard to find mod. :)

    The face shot of Breaker is so cute. And Jagadoll is really a pretty mare. Its a shame she was not taken care of! >.< people like that make me angry. I'm glad she has a good home now! :)
