High AF is, as of 4/1/19, a gelding. Judith Huchton and I, who are partners on him, are excited to meet him in person, but for now, as a two year old, he is still enjoying the wide open spaces with Heather McLevin at Thunderstruck Ranch in Alberta, Canada. Thunderstuck Ranch was the high point breeder of the 2018 World Appaloosa Show. We have high (hahaha) hopes for him. I plan to go get him from Montana in mid-July.
In the video: This was his first day out after being gelded. He is the one with the big white Appaloosa blanket!
Atti, who belongs to Judith, sprained her front leg almost two weeks ago, and is slated for a few more weeks of rest. It was a relatively minor injury that she got while out playing in the big lot. It is putting a crimp in our show plans, however, and we will miss the May show in Colorado. Also, she had started working cattle like a bit of a cow horse, she can pony the new horses, is great on the trail, and I was even going to let her give a lesson (and she is only four) so, quadruple bummer. We expect a full recovery and hope to to be back in the show ring in June!
