A Sad Day

Horses We Own

Big Chocolate Chip  ( Appaloosa gelding)
1980-2012

Chip’s papers were lost from previous owners so we hard-shipped him, so his official lineage was unknown. He was the best horse for kids and very comfortable to  to ride. Showing, trail riding, parades, babysitter and even Competitive trail riding, he did it all. Even did a bit part on the Movie “The Postman” ( he is at the end in the herd of horses). All with his flashy spotted coat.

He once promoted the appaloosa breed by playing a Nez Perce Indian pony for a local VBS. complete with his picture featured in the local Newspaper!

In Nov of 2007 at 27 yrs he competed in a Competitive Trail Ride and he received 1st place horse, and the nick name “Gramps”!

Today he had a brief bought of colic and passed very quickly, He will be missed!

Horses We Own

I bought this guy out of California a few months ago and just love him. His name is Gotta Impress You, aka Reno. Pretty enough to get attention, but has lots of GO to do Trail riding and Competitive Trail Rides. Don’t have a lot of pictures yet of him, going to buy one of the ones of him doing his first CTR here
and Here

He is sired by Multiple World Champion Go To Impress by Goer, and out of Race /Performance Bred mare. He is bay with a loud spotted blanket, I do call him my A.D.D child as standing still it not his best point. But that is what I was sorta going for in a CTR horse, but one of his best features is his trot. Man he can go. In fact I can see his front hooves in front when he is doing the mega trot!

A few weekends ago, we did a 12 mile ride and he was just warming up… I should have rode it twice!

Anyway is has this special Dorky Look, where he stand and turns his head strait on to look at you… not very haltery! one day I hope to get some Most Colorful At Halter Points on him!

The Dorky Look!
