Both my State Champions. Ghost & King
Having fun at the cabin on Lake Frances
Ghost paaaaaaark! Oh were the front legs supposed to be vertical? Oops. Horse shopping for my first "show" horse, I couldn't decide between Ghost and a handsome morgan owned by Kurt Fretham. When I went to look at Ghost a second time & told Milt Strand that the other horse I was looking at could park, he said, "This horse can park!" and asked Ghost to park. It may have been his frist time doing it right there, but he did it, and I said, "SOLD!" He was just that kind of horse who would do anything for me...RIP
