I went to double check and on my page here in Pro Storyteller there is a picture of my son on his old Morgan and on the newer tri-color paint, you just have to be patient through the slide show

I have tried to add a couple photos here but when I do t shuts my computer down? Cant figure that one out. Anyway there are some mixed in on my page in here and others of Cowboy Mounted Shooting on my facebook page.
My sons newer horse is a tricolor paint. No papers but what a talent! He was born to compete with my son. Just hoping he doesnt outgrow him before the season is over. Next one will need to be 17 hands just hard to get them handy around barrels in that size. Im sure John Wayne had trouble finiding them the right size too!

Same back to you, Jim!

Wow, what a build on Diablo. You know I love these photos, so keep them coming.

I thought of you the other day watching The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. It's Tommy Lee Jones' first go at directing. In the movie, he rides a stunning sorrel QH. He shows off a good stop, a rollback and a few spins. Also a heart stopping, lengthy sequence of the horse falling on him in desert sand. The story line is...uh...sorry, I was watching the horse!

Howdy Reisa, Hope your holidays were fun, and rewarding, and that 2010 will be a super year!

Here's a photo of me, and Diablo eating Thanksgiving lunch together. He's a grandson of Mr. San Peppy, and is enjoying the lush coastal bermuda grass. He's a heavy boned, and muscled big boy @ 16 hands, 1250lbs. Best friend you could ever have, and the best workin' hand this side of the Pecos. We've got to get some more posts going here. I'll spread the word. Meanwhile - best of luck in 2010!!

Hi Reisa, I'm on the road, and a bit side tracked for the holidays with family, etc. I would love to tell some stories of these horses - they deserve it - they made me a super star over the years. I'll post some as I get time between the cracks. Thanks for your forum here, and I hope others will become active as well.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Thanks for turning King in this direction, Jim. You can still see he's staring that steer straight in the eye. And Buck's got a real nice front end. Please tell us the long versions of these stories.

Horses are the biggest clowns. To me, they often seem to be trying to share a joke.

This is me with Buck the Wonderhorse. I performed with him for over 7 years, for people all over the World. He was a real clown, but a solid cowhorse, and quality workin' hand.

Cuttin' on King, P-234 Grandson

you can see the old blood lines in the solid structure of the leg! Good to see some of that old breeding line is still out there getting the job done.
One of my stories is about my son's Morgan gelding and his run in with the police it is quite a story. His night on the town made him infamous among the northeast Cowboy Mounted Shooters. This horse has a sense of humor and likes to party. Sadly my son has outgrown him and really misses his shenanigans at shoots. Hopefully one day he will have another rider that can manage him at the shoots the horse grew to love the action.

Hey Jim,

Never mind the rider's head. Adjust the photo so we can see that Mr. SP hip! Looking forward to your story. I don't know anything about the tour.
