Day 6: Childhood memory



This is Kennebec Chief, known as Kenny, with me up.  The photo was taken in 1989, so I would have been ten years old and Kenny was twenty four.

The neatest part of this childhood memory is that Kenny was a stallion and is my mare Sparky's sire.  Kenny was probably the most well behaved and easy going stallion I will ever meet and he taught me to canter.   I loved riding him!  Not many can say that not only did they ride a stallion as a kid, but that they got to ride their horse's sire.

  1. So cool! My mare's sire is still around - not sure I would want to ride him though :)
