Oh, I hope Joshua can forgive me for laughing, because I'm really laughing WITH him, not AT him!! I remember well this hard-learned lesson when I was playing around with dismounting. NEVER do anything flat-footed! :)
Daisy rides through a 'scary obstacle' with Becky on the trails at the local park on 1/30/09.
Dee rides Daisy down the fence line in her head-shaking barefoot Tennessee Walk.
She doesn't mind water at all, and in fact, LOVES it!
We always take the dogs with us, everywhere we go.

On the point overlooking Lake Sam Rayburn on 12/30/08 -- from left to right:
Barbara on Daisy; Jake on Chisel; Darlene on Peyton; Huey on Fury; and Tracy on Patron. As you can tell, nobody is having any fun!!
I opened the door, reached inside to grab my gloves off the bar, and just then heard a big CLOPPITY-CLUNK, and when I turned back around, I was eye to eye with You-Know-Who!
I bet she'd have been happy to park on the sofa with a bag of popcorn, a coke and watch Flicka or Mr. Ed, or even Oprah!
Barbara rides Daisy by the Beaver Dam.
Daisy calmly steps over hurricane debris and doesn't mind riding in the back of the ride.
Jan astride Daisy on 12/27/08 in front of a baby long leaf pine tree -- we don't see many of the long leaf pines anymore, and this one is beautiful in the Angelina Forest in Texas.
Daisy and Jan follow Tex down the hill to the beach. Notice in the right picture that she is barefoot, and also notice her calm demeanor.
This is a blurry picture (it was raining) but it sure shows her wild chrome splashes!
Daisy makes her way to the lake with Bailey in the lead, and you can actually see a norther in the distance about to blow in. We did wind up getting totally drenched in the rain, thunder and cold wind. The temperature went from 72 degrees to about 60 in the period of three minutes.
Daisy never showed fear and really didn't hesitate to go in -- in fact, she loved the water!
Can a mare have any privacy at all without having to share the lake with the dogs?
LEFT: I love the beautiful neck and round shoulder on this mare; RIGHT: Check out her refined neck.
Jan is having a blast on this sweet, calm Tennessee Walking Horse mare.
Click on arrow ABOVE to see one of Daisy's very first rides after being turned out to pasture for over a year. Stay tuned to see more videos of her as she develops a beautiful headset.
Turning off leg pressure as well as the rein.
Solid 4-beat true Tennessee Walk. BAREFOOT!
Patiently waiting for someone to ride her on 12/23/08.
The ultimate in chrome! She's much more flashy than even these pictures show. Here she is at camp at the Angelina Forest on Christmas Day, 2008.
Big, beautiful blaze, splotches everywhere, four long white stockings, mixed blonde mane and tail.
"Daisy" -- Big boned, stocky (with wide chest) 8-yr-old Tennessee Walking Horse mare probably gentle for anyone in the nation to ride. A real confidence builder, as well as an excellent mother to her foals.
She is Personal Power, Sun's Delight D and Go Boy's Shadow on her sire's side, and her dame is Pride of Midnight and Ebony Masterpiece -- a beautiful package with excellent credentials, wouldn't you say?
The best part: Daisy, the Sweetheart, is BAREFOOT (hard, healthy perfect hooves) and performing a beautiful head-shaking true Tennessee Walk. As of 12/24/08, she is camping in the Angelina Forest and we'll be posting more pictures and video soon. No worries about issues with this mare -- she is not hormonal and doesn't misbehave when she is in season, she's mellow and moves slowly, but will speed up if you ask her, and beginners find themselves feeling safe on her. $4500
