My Horse

Cloud's Bay Malinda (Better Known as Windy)
Missouri Fox Trotter
March 6, 1984 to August 28, 2015
Dark Liver Bay, not a spot of white.
Windy came to live with us in August of 1990.
We shared her life for 25 years.  And for the first time in 35 years we do not have a horse to call our own.

She was a prideful horse with a big heart, plenty of spirit and plenty of life experience stories.  If you were a man you did not want to even think about getting on her back!  Even the dogs gave her respect and distance!

She made herself the baby goats guardian.  It was so much fun watching the baby goats climb all over her and share "their" grain and hay.

We miss you"Old Mare".

Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day here in Central Missouri, so we decided to get out and see a new sight...  Lake of the Ozarks Air Show...Saluting our Military.  The "Old Goat" was in the 74th AVN Co. Aloft Group, Pho Loi, Vietnam.  His job was Crew Chief for one of the flight lines.  He spent 14 months living and breathing the O-1 Birddog.  He has not been up close and personal with the taildraggers since.  It brought back a few memories from the good old days being this close to planes again.  They did not have any O-1's in the show.

It was a good day....

Finn and Stuff

This is like hunting, right?

 Pretty sure there is a turtle in his mouth...

 Hard morning already!
