"Holiday in Memphis" is a registered buckskin, and AQHA registered. When I first saw him, watched his green antics, saw his strength, and he sailed over the barrels with ease, I knew he could be the higher level Parelli teen horse we needed. But buckskins can be "bucky", so it took a few years and much patience to get his wiggles out. But oh how fun he is! He has been a great example of joining up, or partnering "whole heartedly", because he fights it. One minute he has his confident mask on, and the next he is spooking from movement in the trees. Maturity has been the key for him. He is now consistent, settled, and as long as you can win the argument, a great partner. He's a great baby sitter for Owie. He doesn't put up with Owie's challenges. One bite at level 4 from Memphis, and Owie surrenders to his authority. It's awesome. He's helping us raise the little handful. Maybe one day, Mr. Mike will get on Memphis and ride into the sunset after feeding time.
"Make me passionate and wholehearted to fulfill your every wish, so that Ill never have to be ashamed of myself." Ps 119:80
