Beau was a gorgeous boy. I bet he covered some ground. My barrel mare is 16.2 so I know what it feels like. And yay for seeing another barrel racer in a helmet. I always feel like I'm the only one in my very Texas area. :) I see the roan in Red's barrel. I like the combination. :)
Beau was a looker, that's for sure! I know I will never have another horse that was as pretty as he was. He just caught your eye!
Oh yea, until his later years, he really just always looked like he was lolly-gagging through the pattern. And then we'd stop the clock. He covered serious ground!
I'm pretty much the only one wearing a helmet up here too. I honestly can NEVER remember ever seeing another adult anywhere wearing a helmet, besides me and my mom. (which I think it really sad after 20-some years of doing this). But I don't care; I'm going to protect my head!!

Thanks for the clarification. I just looked for that AQHA article I read that I thought I saved, but I must not of. I just remember reading it and thinking that Red must not be a red roan (technically).
Thanks! That is why I fell in love with his sale ad, I saw all that red and was like OH MY GOSH NO WHITE?! People think he's boring to look at but I think he looks so classy in everything because there isn't any white to distract the eyes.
