Same lousy weather today, cold, snow and wind so nothing achieved in the photo department and on top of it I had to go and fetch a load of hay. YUK. So here is another old shot and the story that goes with it.
This photo was my first stock sale. It was bought by a Veterinarian Association for their one newsletter/information brochure. The picture is of the first baby that was actually born here after I married my husband. When I arrived there were already 4 babies but they were already a month to 3 months old. So this baby was born two years later and was my first newborn. I called him Sonnys Anticipation because his momma is Sonnys Copper Gal and we werent sure when he was conceived because the stallion ran with the mares in the pasture that year so we anticipated his arrival for weeks. He was bought along with another filly of ours born that year by a chap (Stan) who has now become a friend, for trail riding. He has been riding them now for 2 years on the trails and I have actually ridden him twice. He is a star. When it came time to break him to ride he never bucked or put a foot wrong. By the time Stan had ridden him 4 times he had given him to his 13 year old daughter to ride because he was so well behaved and they fell in love with each other and Stan has never been able to ride him again because she is always on him! I feel honored that she let me ride him twice.
So that is my story for the day. I hope you all had a good one.
