This next one is going WAY back and this is Misty Dawn a filly we raised from a foal. She was our surprise baby. We didn't know her mother had been bred when we bought her. I think I was about 12 years old then, she was about 2. The next picture is her mother Flicka a little grade mare that we bought from a local horse dealer. I remember the day vividly as Dad and I went out to look at the horses and came home with her on the back of the pick up truck. Didn't have a horse trailer back then! It was the most exciting day of my young life to drive into the drive way with her!! Little did we know that in a few months we'd have Misty Dawn. We had her until she was 17 and she died with a twisted intestine. I was devastated, I'd had her so long, she was such a big part of my life from such a young age but these things happen.
This next one is Comanche a paint that we had for a while. He was a nice horse and we used him for parades and trail riding, didn't show back then.
This last picture is of Son when he was about three years old. He had ridden his pony in leadline and won his first ribbon. I probably still have it tucked away some where. Sniff..sniff..
