Rain from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron received an honorary registration certificate from the American Paint Horse Association (APHA), which has registered more than 670,000 American Paint Horses to date. She is the first animated horse to be registered by this organization.
Missed the big goob, today Barney was looking sounder than he has in a long time, and it gave me a hint of hope that he way return to being riding sound one day, even if just for light trail rides. It was a great thing to see
Remember when I had Lakota in college? I got him when he was 3 years old out of a field. He didn’t have a mane and was anemic. I brought him home and took care of him, a month later he was a wild man because he had never felt good and finally did. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get him to the point where I could take him off the property and show him, and when we did he was amazing! What a great little jumping bean. His new owners (new HA… they have had him for 4 years now!) said that he continues to excel in the jumping arena which is so gratifying seeing as I spent such long hours with him as a baby desensitizing him to absolutely everything.
I keep this picture on my desk to remind me of him and how hard work really paid off. One day I will have another horse(s), but for now I have to mooch off of friends who have them. Oh memories… you make me weepy..
Let’s just gush about my man Maximus for a minute here :) (his registered name is Sonny Deebar Delight… But Max suits him better :)
First photo is his current Certificate of Registration (I’m just filling out the papers now to get my name on that paper!!). Next is a close up of the picture on his registration (him as a baby!! How dead cute is he?!?!). Third we have a most recent photo of him (last weekend!) And a couple photos of us together, riding and hanging out :)
