Ace was the boss of our ranch! Though he whipped other horses to let them know he was boss he was also gentle and lovable.I only rode him three times and that was bareback.Each time was when we used Ace to retrieve or return a neighbor's stray horse.Sometimes stray horses won't go back where they belong by themselves.I so enjoyed riding him! He was my baby! I talked to him and called him my, "Baby boy!"He loved it! Loved me to touch and rub him.I photographed him a lot!!!... continue reading
I am pleased to announce this milestone and also take this opportunity to wish everyone a blessed and prosperous holiday season!I normally custom design our Christmas cards and this year used images taken of two new members of our family, Charlie and Toto.

I recently reached 50 uploads and I participate to the assignment for the first time last month.
