The first three pictures were taken Labor Day, 2010.
This is TWH Duke, my heart horse. He is 23 in this picture and was 16 in the avatar picture. Only 14.3H he is considered a pony in the Walking Horse world. He's my alpha-dominant horse, still wears a "No Fear" t-shirt and has never bucked, reared, kicked, bitten or otherwise made any sort of mistake in the 21 years we've been buds.
Duke is old enough that Midnight Sun is his great-grandsire; along with Wilson's Allen on his bottom.
16.1H TWH Rusty is Generator-bred and my best down and dirty trail horse. He is my most athletic of the three and thrives on dangerous cliff-hangar trails. He is not a horse for the faint of heart - if you're a timid rider, you lose. Rusty has been with me 13-1/2 yrs.
12 yr old TWH Joker is 15.2H and came to live with us in 2006. Both his parents were in their 20's when he was born, so he is only 5 or 6 generations away from Old Glory and Nell Dement. His sire is from the Chance line which had no Midnight Sun in it at one point in time.
This was Joker's first ride in 4 years but he went thru the field like we'd been riding every day.
Annnd horse #4 is my Arab who was 23 in this picture; he's now 25. Sorry, can't leave him out; I rescued him when he was seven. He is the best child-safe horse one could ask for. He is being ponied alongside Duke, who is in huff because his BFF won't trot faster.
