My little quarterhorse Jane, shaking off flies last summer..

Dubbed “Plain Jane” as a 3yo, as she was indeed a scrawny, under-developed hairy “pony” she has since overcome her title to become a lovely, fat, goey little cow pony, with a definate pretty streak! she has also really come out of her shell and has quite a sense of humour as far as mares go! she has a very shy candid nature…

She now has a cruisy career as a brood mare, although she still enjoys a baraback fang up the backroads from time to time.. fingers crossed she will be having her first foal this year!

Jane also appears in:

Adventures of a creative, curious country chick, with a few horses, lazy dog and insane cat in tow! Living the dream in rural Australia, my photos focus on the outback, horses, and the rural way of life… oh and a few pretty flowers along the way!

    Awwh Penny, Jane is gorgeous! :) I love the shot! :) My QH mare is Julie! :) Is there something about QH mares being very good doo-ers! LOL!

    Gabe :)

  • cheers, thanks! I think there must be something about them! every spring Jane is always on the verge of having to be locked up for fear of founder, and this winter she went unrugged despite it being the worst in a long time and she’s out there fat and shiny! she may be having a foal soon too – she’s in foal, but the stallion has produced a lot of failed pregnancy’s this year so I’ve got my fingers crossed! =)

    Oh Penny, I love it. I used to raise QH’s. I have two left, Micki is 30 and Dandy is 25. They are my beautiful spoiled-rotten kids. Barb

  • That’s great to hear! glad you like it, wow, sounds like your QH’s are having a pretty good run! I’ll be pretty happy if Jane lasts that long =)

  • Cheers thanks so much chyanne! fingers crossed hey, she never used to have an ounce of personality at all, but of the years she’s come out of her shell.. the little one should have plenty of attitude, the stallion was a great guy too lol =)
