Photo Hunt (Thirteen)


This week photo theme is Thirteen (13) and the following week the theme is: unique/funny signs
To learn more about please visit our hostess TN Chick



When I was 13 my horse Taurus was born. I got my first horse his mom Shot gun Trix( trixie). So their was a youth horsing raising project and local people who had stallions donate Stud fee and we got a mare bred by “Robin Red Star”
So for many years I rode horse in horse show.
This is Taurus when he was between 4 and 6 years old.
He and I won quite a few wards.
One year I entered him in Spokane fair and in his halter class he got reserve champion out of about 50 horses.
Confession time…the only reason I didn’t get champion that I held the lead to short and I made him travel crooked
His full name was “T Taurus Red” and he died of old age
