Several years ago, I sent Tiffany a big box of unpainted resins. Since then, she's been slowing working her way through the pile. About a month ago, this Orgulhoso made his way to the top.
Tiffany customized his tail, gave him a spiffy new paint job and, with my blessings, took him to a horse show. I was sitting in the emergency room with my son Ryan when I received a text message with this picture.
"Yay!" I texted back. And then it occurred to me--we hadn't discussed names. Quickly I sent another text asking, "What's his name?"
"Fred," she answered.
"No," I said.
"Frederico Suave?" she asked.
I countered that with, "How about Estudioso?"
At that point, I thought the name issue had been resolved. I was wrong. A couple weeks later I got another text. It proclaimed, "Fred is a winner!"
The horse whose name is NOT Fred arrived in Colorado today.He is absolutely beautiful.
I especially love his face.This is my first grey Purdy horse but it won't be my last.
I love, love, love his soft "older horse" dapples!I'm not sure about that signature, though.
Sigh. How many times do I have to tell Tiffany that his name is NOT Fred!?!
