Christmas Is Just Around the Corner.....

*****First, I want to thank all of you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments. Just know that even though I do not always have time to comment on your blogs, I still try to keep up. As much as I can, anyway!!******

Now, back to the task at hand...Christmas is just around the corner, and I thought that I would share a few of the horses that I really like...teeheehee!! And Stephanie, if you ever visit blogland anymore, I still like your Stretch too!

Surprisingly, there really aren't that many horses out there that really catch my eye right now, and if they do, they are over $20,000; which makes them a little out of my price!
Above is a local gelding that appears to be well trained and extremely versatile, and he could be mine for the small sum of $30,000. Who cares if he costs as much as my education????
Smart Millionaire is another handsome boy that I have had my eye on, and if you follow the link to the owners farm, you can see another horse that I really like named Hold the Chrome. Look under the 'sales horse' tab and then look under 'two year olds.' (I tried to copy her picture, but they all copied at once)
Now for the $10,000 and under horses.....
Above is an appendix QH gelding named Ben Has Friends and at $3000, I am really surprised that no one has snatched him up yet. He appears to be well put together, but I wonder if he has any lameness issues from years of jumping? He would definitely need to be vetted. (Well, they all would really...)The bay roan mare in the above picture is not the prettiest thing on the block, but she looks sturdy and honest, and also like she has a bit of get up and go. And for only $6000, she seems like steal after some of the above horses, right???
I really like this mare's quiet demeanor. The only thing I would be worried about is genetic stuff, because don't those Coosa horses have some weird chromosomal defect, or am I thinking of HYPP in Impressive bred horses???? Help me out Chelsi and BEC!!!!! Coosa mare

The appy gelding above reminds me of a darker version of Pony Girl's "My Boy," and I would really like to see more of him. What do you think???? He seems fairly priced at $3000, and the owner is willing to negotiate.
Then there is this bay appaloosa gelding in Nevada. He appears to be quite handsome as well, but I do not think he is as inexpensive as the last few horses, as his price is marked "private treaty."And what the heck is up with the Arab and half-Arab's right now???? There is literally NOTHING out there that really sounds (or looks!!!) good, except for this handsome boy. He is quite easy on the eyes, but a little too old for my taste. He would make an excellent horse for my kidlets though!
Oh, and he is listed at $8000, which seems a little steep for his age; although he is quite accomplished and versatile.
So...what do you guys think???? Are you able to find well-bred, well-trained, and eye appealing
horses out there right now, or am I just really picky??
Until next time......

KISS This!!!!

I hope that everyone had a safe and fun Halloween out there, and of course, I have to share pictures of the kidlets in their costumes, but first, check out our friend's costumes....How cool were they???? Below is the real KISS, just in case you don't know what the real band looks like. Being a child of the 80's and 90's, I was only aware of the infamous Jean!!!! We went out with a bunch of friends after we took the kidlets trick-or-treating, and our KISS friends ended up winning costume contests everywhere. Another great costume idea that we saw last night was a couple of guys dressed up as Dangle and Junior off of Reno 911... right down to the teeny, tiny shorts and bullet-proof vests!

So without further adieu, let me introduce you to the newest nerds of our little town.....

Here's a closer shot....And last-but-not-least is my girlie girl dressed as a cheerleader. And in a pink camo jacket no less! (It was really blustery and it rained off and on)How could you NOT love this face????? Alright, I must go now, as I have exceeded my allotted blog-time by about 15 minutes. Homework is waiting......
