this is FANTASTIC! #302604

Brenton Schuetz August 29, 2005

This took my breath away. Strength and beauty, power and speed. Wow! Not enough good things to say about this. #1782903

Zita A. Strother level-addict August 29, 2005

Thanks you both for such nice responses.

I love this horse and have had 4 foals by him.
I like that the image does not suggest a mare, and I'm glad that Brenton verablized what I wanted the image to say.
The stallion is a big teddy bear, but his work ethic is 110% and he defintely lives up to the name his presence as a foal earned him - "Bravado!"
Thanks again:)Zita #1783017
