Bailey is a reject reiner, a bit of a grump, and we missed him so much after we sold him that we bought him back six years later. He is a Novice packer, a champion junior hunter, and Mom’s master foxhunter. He paddles like a rowboat and prefers that you don’t tell him what to do.

Gamble was a terrible racehorse, a weird event horse, an unbalanced dressage horse, and a jiggy trail horse. He had colic surgery to secure his colon and he has one club foot. He’s Ma’s soul mate. And so it goes. USEA registered: Baccarat, Jockey Club registered: Big Firecracker
