I'll do an introduction later, but for now I'll just write some stuff to see what the blog looks like.
I put Janan Abinoam up here as a reminder. He didn't take no guff from no one. Bouncy, funny, smart, and a totally kick-ass guy. Was once the gorilla of the barn, roaring down the aisle showing off and screaming. If he could he would have beat his chest.
But then a few moments later he'd put on his "cute puddin" face if he saw a willing audience. Sneaky bastard.
My aunt found him -- he was an Arabian bred in all lines back to desert-bred horses imported to America by Homer Davenport in 1906. He was the first horse I ever cued into a canter from a dead halt. Wow. Now there's a rush.
He was a cool dude. It was a privelege to know him. And now his "puddin face" can remind me to get going.
OK, that wasn't soooo bad!
