Where's Libby, you ask?



Libby is still her sweet, people-loving self, always ready to come and greet me when I pass by.  I've not been so anxious to work her too much since I found out that two years old is probably too young for her to be ridden.  For one thing, she's small; for another, people on the Homesteading Today equine forum urged me to give her more time, preferably waiting until she's three years old to ride her.

Once she's old enough to ride, if I find out she isn't going to get much use here, I'll sell her.  I love her dearly, but horse upkeep being what it is, we can't afford to keep her around just to be a pretty pasture ornament.  I intend to keep Blue here always, no matter what.  But he's the only one who's that special.

I took the above picture just last week.  Libby is so pretty; she always has those ears up, posing for the camera.

Ilove Libby!!  I have a 4 year old mare Cookie who is my baby. Girls and their horses, there's nothing better

She is a beauty !  Hopefully she'll be lots of riding pleasure in the near future.  Looks like you have  a lovely blue sky there, we are overcast and it's rained off and on.  'On Ya'  -ma

That is a great pic of her. She is a beautiful house thats for sure. And she just looks so sweet and girly in the face. I hope she rides good so you guys can keep her. Maybe she could be a good horse for the girls and they could kind of grow up together. I would certainly hate for you to get rid of her but i can unterstand why too.
Take care :-)

Libby has great conformation; she looks alert ... should be very responsive. I was wondering how your "Lake MO" is  now?
