Apache is only worth $5000 apparently even with is gorgeous looks etc lol.

I must have gotten Sammy as a bargain cause I only paid $2000 for him but apprently is worth $22000, I have to pay more attention.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P
