"Streak of Gold" -- now known as "Hollywood" and integrated into this handsome family! Congratulations to Joanie on the perfect match. She writes:
I absolutely love Hollywood! We went to a Desentization Clinic in Decatur, TX (LBJ Grasslands National Park, WONDERFUL marked equestrian trails on 22,000 acres!!! Well worth the trip! Can stay at Grasslands Bed & Barn with horses) Greg, a Houston Mounted Patrol Police Officer holds the clinic for 12 clients and their horses. It was a terrific learning experience for us both. I greatly benefitted from it. -- Joanie 11/8/04
Gerry and Dawn in Oklahoma purchased this 2-yr-old golden palomino stallion "Sunrise" (from our yearling page) in June, 2004, right after Bud started him under saddle. They have really bloomed him out and brought along his training. This is one of the most beautiful horses (and GOLD, at that!) that I've ever met!
Laura, Thought you'd like to see a current picture of "Sonny". He's absolutely marvelous!
Sunny at a recent Texas Walking Horse show.
They also purchased "Sadie", a beautiful black roan lit-up Tennessee Walking Horse mare which they have already camped and trailridden.
Here is a picture of Sadie and I at the parade at the Old Settler's Picnic here in our hometown, Velma, OK. Also, wanted to tell you that Sadie is a real dream horse, because she adjusts her gait according to who is riding her. If an inexperienced rider is on her, she goes along in a smooth and flowing gate, but if an experienced rider is on her, she'll really stretch out and go, go, go. No horse we have can keep up with her.
Here is a picture of Shanghi who we renamed Wilson. He
is everything you said. We are very happy with him.
"The Arsonist" -- I used to own and show this beautiful red Tennessee Walking Horse gelding about 10 years ago, winning lots of blue ribbons and even retiring a challenge trophy (winning 3 consecutive years) with him. He is now owned by the Gerring family, and is shown here winning the costume class in October, 2004 competing as a "Harley Davidson motorcycle". The picture is deceiving, but had lots of people laughing when they found out the trickery behind this costume. Mr. Gerring actually has fake hands (stuffed gloves and arms) in the leather biker jacket, which are tied to the PVC handlebars. He is handling the reins by slipping his hands out underneath the jacket, in his lap. Mr. Gerring is wearing biker attire, complete with "doo-rag", sunglasses and Mrs. Gerring stuck bumper stickers on the horse's hindquarters stating "Follow me to Sturgis". This had to be a great costume, because it beat out a very attractive belly dancer!
Laura, Cimarron is doing great. He's everything you said he was, perfect on the trails. People thought I was crazy for buying a horse on the Internet sight unseen, but I had such a good feeling about you. Amy is great, as well. Pam just loves her. We can't wait for the baby to arrive.
Thank you and Merry Christmas

Hi Laura, I just wanted to let you know that Sundrop and ChaChi are working out just great. They are now Sunny and Romeo! I hope they don’t care. We are enjoying them so much, and I believe they love our pasture and their new barn. Thanks again for the great horses. We have recommended you to several people. Thanks, Judy White 4/12/05
Windberg has turned out to be a wonderful horse. He’s everything you said he was and more. I am really glad that we got him. He’s a once in a lifetime horse….the kind you keep forever……
Thanks for your help and for representing him accurately to match what we were looking for…
Marcy -- Willis, Texas
Here’s a pic of my husband Alex on Windberg and a neighbor out for a leisurely ride.
This was taken this evening with my friend on Daisy. This lady is 70 years old and the main reason I bought Daisy. I needed something reliable and safe. Daisy is working out nicely.
