This is Star Spangled. He is one the members of my childhood herd who recently found his way back to me in Colorado.The Proud Arabian Stallion isn't a popular mold these days, but back in the 1970's and early 1980's he was pretty much the bomb. In my imagination, Star Spangled was a magnificent show horse, and even though I didn't own any real tack, I could picture him all dressed up and ready to win.
Well, I do own tack now.
The rest of today's post is a present from my forty seven year old self to my twelve year old self. Hang in there, little Jennifer. In just a few short decades, all your hobby dreams will come true!
