I bought this for my birthday (not really a spinoff at all)

Like Tree21Likes

So I didn't discuss *why* I was staying at a B&B in Alford, Florida. This is why:



It was the closest accomodations to a place called Emerald Acres, a small horse breeder who breeds horses who are exactly the type I like.

For two years I have been following the growth and progress of one of the babies on the farm because she tended to have everything I would want in my future young dressage prospect to bring up behind Tucson. And this weekend I went out and bought her! Because I love the personality and less bulky build of Thoroughbreds but the innate ability in the type of horses called warmbloods, the trick was finding a breeder who uses a lot of thoroughbred blood in breeding dressage horses. She fits what I want more than any other horse I know of, and I think I'm lucky to have her!

Her name's Emerald Ice, and nickname is Ellie. She'll be on a truck across the country in October because there's no need to make her roast on a truck just because I'm impatient to have her here. After a microburst tore apart the barn yesterday, it also means we have time to fix things up before she gets here, too...

I'm super excited.

She's a very pretty girl! For some reason she intimidates me more than Tucson who just seems like a big old goof.

She is stunning. I would not want to wait.

Too bad I can't see the picture. Congratulations and a belated happy b-day!

Edit: Oooooh, I see her now. What a beauty!

Very nice!!!! Almost as nice as the one I tried to sell you

Are the horses going to be ok till the barn goes back togeather?
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I think Tucson will be thrilled to have another member to his harem!


And Springcurl - I can see it! Tucson is a big old goof, and she's a two year old who needs to learn a lot. I'm guessing by 5 she'll be the horse I put beginners on...
