This is my old man, Chance.... He was put down in October 2011... I got Chance in 2004 from a rescue centre, he was surrendered to the rescue as his owner was not able to afford him anymore. When I got him in '04 he was 26 years old, skinny, feet had not been done in who knows how long, face all sun burnt and peeled, his ears were raw with bug bites
We rehabilitated Chancey, his previous owner contacted us (threatening to sue us for not telling her we had him???) anyways, we found out he is reg'd (don't know his reg'd name though?), he was a Calgary Stampede Clown Horse and a Rocky Mountains Pack Horse, lived a pretty crazy life! When I got him, I rode him english, jumped him, western, barrel racing, pole bending, all of it!! He was amazing. I took him to his first horse shows at the age of 27!! He won 4th and 5th place in Barrels & Pole Bending, then another show and won Champion!!! He was amazing for his age, you would never tell he was that old.... my parents divorced and we had to give him away, to the best home, my best friend!! She had him until he got put down, he was her first horse, and taught her how to care for a horse and how to ride. He was quite a "ham"... had the Appy attitude!!
Rest In Peace Chancey, I love you forever & always and think about you every day
Believe it or not... his tail was even WORSE, this was the best I could grow it!! TGF MTG!
Him & Turly, paddock buddies, best friends!!!
Looking all fancy chancey pants!
Jumping... he LOVED jumping!!
