Rockin' dobbin


I was the owner of ROCKIN' DOBBIN. He was the International Grand Champion of the Rocky Mountain Horse Association in 2002. He was the horse whose mane hung to his ankles and tail dragged the ground by about 1 foot. He did the commerical for Mane 'n Tail Products. He had appeared on many television networks, magazines, and newspapers. He was listed in the American Cowboy Magazines as one of the top celebrities who promote breeds. His picture was with Elvis Presley, Johnny Depp, John Wayne, and others. He was the only horse listed. There is now a children's book released from the publisher called Dobbin and the Stardust Trial. It can be seen on www.dobbinsdreamstories. ROCKIN' DOBBIN passed away on June 5, 2009. He is sadly missed by his family. We will always remember him running in his favorite pasture. This book will honor his memory.

The picture you have put up is about 5 years old. His mane grew to his ankles and his tail dragged the ground about 9inches. You might enjoy his book. You can order it at this site.

It is still hard to go to the barn or walk on the farm without him being here. My heart will never get over his passing.
