Best; she is super loving and clever
Worst; she has no spots! (appaloosa) and is a squirt and very stubbron
Best; he was soo much fun and steady but perked up nicely and super duper fun and easy to take out
Worst; impossible to clip or inject, and he would sometimes totally show you up
7th September 2009, 02:24 PM
His whole, wanting to please attitude, and his VERY high intelligence level.
Its very hard to say, but i suppose i would like it if he was more managable by more people, or was a little bit more settled around them
His old wise ways and his funny little quirks
Him stressing out in the stables
The way he tilts his head and curls his lip any time he wants something
The fact he's so old and has cushings :(
His cheeky little face and the way he springs around the field
Him springing around the field and kicking himself!

Favorite: He can be really loving and cuddly.
Least favorite: The huge scar on his back leg that seems to be getting bigger even though it's been there for over 3 years. Looks like it's got lots of dry proud flesh on it so obviously someone didn't treat it or get it seen to when it first happened :(

7th September 2009, 07:38 PM
Favourite - He's so eager to please and loves to work and learn new things.
Least favourite - His size, whilst it's cute most of the time, there's times when it makes things awkward.
7th September 2009, 08:04 PM
Favourite - The way she really tries when she's being taught something new. Her nose.
Least Favourite - Her inability to come in from the field like a normal horse at certain times.
7th September 2009, 08:28 PM
Favorite - His attitude to life, he is his own horse and if he wants/doesn't want to do something then he will/wont. Everything is a challenge and it feels great when you can pursuade him to do something/not to do something!!!!
Least Fav - I wish he was taller
7th September 2009, 08:40 PM
Best; she is super loving and clever
Worst; she has no spots! (appaloosa) and is a squirt and very stubbron
Hmmm, must be something to do with the name Kizzie as I'd have thought you were talking about my Kiz (except the appaloosa part!)
Best: Fabby children's pony, very pretty, scrubs up well (lol), sweet nature, very kind and gentle, loving, quick to learn/clever
Worst: Her sweetitch (grrrr), her persistant cough that we can't get to the bottom of (double grrrrr, bless her), can be stubborn, sometimes a bit over-sensitive
Best: Very handsome, lovely nature, quiet/laid back, easy to train/school, takes everything in his stride
Worst: hmmm, I wish he were nearer 12hh
Best: He is the man!!!! The best little pony EVER, tolerates small unruly children (hahaha, bless him), very cheeky, picks his feet up in order for them to be picked out (and will hold them up even if not being held - how cute?!)

7th September 2009, 10:28 PM

7th September 2009, 10:58 PM

7th September 2009, 10:59 PM
best- she's a fab hack and was one of the nicest horses i've ridden on the flat.
worst- all her health problems which means she's pretty much retired :(
best- she's so affectionate and very intelligent which can sometimes double up into her worst quality as she can be too clever for her own good! lol
8th September 2009, 12:39 AM
favourite- her character and general affectionate nature- never met a horse like it!
Least- her sweetitch!
favourite- her gentle nature! She is very sweet to handle, and feel 100% Safe around her and on her at all times, even if she is a speed demon!
Least- her inability to listen for the first 10 mins of any ride!!
8th September 2009, 07:26 AM

Favorite Thing: The fact that he is mine, simple as ;)
Least Fav Thing: More general........Summer: Flies & Hair ~ Winter: Mud & Rain.
9th September 2009, 12:54 AM
Kissie: My favourite thing is the way she looks when she canters around the field with the wind in her mane...
My least favourite thing is when she spooks at silly things sometimes!
9th September 2009, 01:41 PM
Favorite: Tries so hard and has such an unbeatable personality.
Least Favorite: His weight/the laminitis.
10th September 2009, 10:18 AM
Favourite: Her character, that she is so chille and easy to do in every way. There's no problems with anything and she rarely shows me up but she still has loads of spirit and looks pretty! I love that she comes charging over when I call her (cos it means I don't have to trudge through the muddy field)!
Least: She can be a pain in the bum to get on, but this is partly my problem lol and also her obscure and ongoing skin problems! She rubs out her mane and her tail and the hair on her bum and she gets really swollen fly bites in the summer; she gets mud fever and is prone to feather mites in the winter. She gets dandruff for the rest of the year and last year she lost all the hair on her face because she was stressed!
Kat loves her Millie
10th September 2009, 11:51 AM
Best: Her lady like personalty and that she can gallop like a 3 year old :)
Worst: The fact that flys love to eat her :(
10th September 2009, 12:51 PM
Favourite: The fact that he is so honest, trusts me 100% and will do anything and try his hardest to please.
Least: His sweetitch (which isn't his fault) and his arthritis which limits what he is able to do even though he tries (mind willing, body not able)
beks the artist
10th September 2009, 06:21 PM
Favourite: His jump! So willing and happy!
Least Favourite: His age (he is 15, wish he was 6 or 7!) and sometimes he can be naughty to catch!
Favourite: He is a fun and good hack!
Least: That he won't box!:lol:
10th September 2009, 08:29 PM
Favourite: his manners (except when eating) and his versatility - that horse can do ANYTHING if he's given the chance :)
Least: his appalling table manners (he throws his food all over the place, paws it into the ground, takes huge mouthfuls which he then drops all over the place because he can't fit it all in his mouth, he chucks his head in the air to throw food down his neck so he doesn't have to swallow...) and his spookiness
11th September 2009, 12:31 AM
eeek, you have just described Chip's eating habits!!!!
Chip: favourite - almost everything :)
least favourite - napping and dragging me to a patch of grass!
Baby: favourite - almost everything
least favourite - she drags you to grass and can be a bit hormonal
11th September 2009, 08:55 PM
Best: His incredibly sweet and affectionate personality combined with his utter goofiness makes him the biggest character I've ever met. Oh, and the fact that he will jump absolutely anything despite the fact I ride like an idiot.
Worst: Aside from being 6000 miles away? The fact that I never know what he will be like to ride one day to the next. Sometimes he will be an angel, the next unrideable. I've decided just to deal with it.
11th September 2009, 11:16 PM
Justin : Favourite thing
(apart from everything cause he really is my most prized possession and favourite thing in the world lol and his canter is to die for lol) after careful thought is his cheeky jealousness of other horses if I pay them too much attention he reminds them that I am all his with a gentle nibble whereever he is close enough to reaching and he wrinkles his nostrils at me in disgust lol. He is slightly less toreable if Sash is getting more attention. I love that he loves me
Least Favourite thing: That he sweats up so easily out hacking no matter how fit he is he has to put 200% in to everything.
Fav- That she always comes to call, whinnying as she comes and brings Justin with her and gives you a greeting like you have never seen in a million years.
Least Favourite: That she can't leave me alone for a minute,(to the point if she gets a fright she comes looking for me to save her or jumps into me like a child trying to hold on to her mummy coat tails lol-what she doesn't realise is that she is 15.2 nearly and a big girl nt a ****** dog!!! oh and can't forget sweet itch,
The little dude on our yard who I might be loaning:
Fav: his cute little ears and his noseyness
Least fav: not catching.... ( a week with Sash might solve that one lol)
6th January 2013, 06:21 AM
What I love best about Vegas
His enthusiasm for life and the way he bounces everywhere I don't think he knows how to walk. He puts his heart and soul into everything he does.
What I dislike
The occasional bout of gassy colic, I have to limit his grazing when the grass is rich.
6th January 2013, 08:09 AM
Favourite - very easy going for an Arab stallion, I can do anything with him and he is so loving.
Not so favourite - he doesn't lunge very well, he likes to come and say hello teaching him to lunge correctly is proving a bit of a challenge as I am alone 99% of the time.
Favourite - another easy going boy, he loves everybody and is soooo easy to love
Not so favourite - he is filthy in his stable and is a mud monster, he doesnt seem to like being grey lol
Favourite - clean in his stable, we have a lot of fun in the trap, he is easy to drive.
Not so favourite - trying to keep him in his paddock can be a challenge lol
6th January 2013, 09:18 AM
This post is 3 and a half years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For good measure, I'll add Jaz and Toffee!
Favourite.... Her bullet proofness
Least fav.... She kicks other horses :(
Favourite..... Everything about her!
Least fav... Sarcoids :(
6th January 2013, 09:51 AM
I'll join in too :p
Shadow's worst trait is the fact he needs to be sedated for clipping. I wish he was good to clip since he's pretty fluffy and can easily turn into a hairy beast without regular trimming! I think with regular desensitisation you'd probably be able to clip him without sedation but I just haven't had the time (or access to clippers!) to work on it.
However, what I adore about him is his personality. He really has one and a super one at that! He's also impeccably behaved at shows, I never have to worry about him possibly going to explode or do anything stupid. If anything he knows he's at a 'party' and really struts hiss stuff :D
6th January 2013, 10:53 AM
I'd better add Hasty and Kilo!
Favourite: the fact that he's a nice safe horse with plenty more wins left in him. Exactly what I needed.
Least favourite: the fact that he's so laid back.
If he was like Vinny to train, but like Hasty in every other way, that would be the perfect horse.
Favourite: he will pull anything and go anywhere for his dad.
Least favourite: I am not his dad and he views me as a minor inconvenience, not to take too much notice of! We have a slightly love-hate relationship, as I seem to have with all of FF's cobs.
6th January 2013, 11:37 AM
Wow, a lot of people we dont hear from much any more :(
6th January 2013, 12:31 PM
Star, fav shes very clever
Least fav she bullys ceska all the time and only has half a tail thanks to her previous field
Ceska, fav. Shes starting to respect me and knows im boss most of time
Least fav, she still tries to kick us... Hopeing she'll grow out of it as we slowly gain her trust
6th January 2013, 02:12 PM
Best: the fact she is Sensitive so is easy to teach lateral work to.
Worst: her stressy ness the way she screams her head off if I ride one of the others.
Best- how he makes me laugh
Worst- his laziness
Best: her big paces and good attitude.
Worst- her hind legs
