Buddy's He's Impressed

April 28, 1988 - November 17, 2009

Thank you, Buddy, for showing us how to be true horsemen. Not by testing us, but by teaching us. It was an honor to own you, to ride you, and to love you.

"Breeders, do not pamper, spoil or corrupt him. Keep him virile, tough and speedy. Improve if you can, his fine disposition, crowd his staying capacity, enlarge his field of activity, so his stamina and versatility will continue unequaled and unchallenged throughout the world."----Robert Peckinpah

HEART …… by Monte Baker

I talked to a friend just the other day
who’s got lots of opinions and plenty to say.
We discussed what we both like to see in a horse
his requirements and mine were different of course?
He likes a clean throatlatch and a long skinny neck,
and prefers that their hocks are set close to the deck.
Short backs and hard feet and clean slopin’ shoulder,
and a gaskin that looks like it swallered a boulder.
He likes a short face and a big ol’soft eye,
and says these are the horses he’s likely to buy.
And when he’d completed his lengthy discourse,
on all of the attributes of the quality horse,
he asked my opinion, and where do I start?
And I said that I…just want horses with heart.
I said I want heart above all the other.
I don’t care if he’s Smart Little Lena’s full brother.
Or just how much money that his grandmother won,
or whether he’s roan, palomino or dun.
But give me a horse with some grit and some try,
and some heart and some guts and that’s one that I’ll buy.
And I’ve found it’s the same with a woman or man…
the good ones won’t quit you when the shit hits the fan…
